Henry Winkler          

Actor, Producer, Director and Best-selling Author


Winkler’s portrayal of “The Fonz” for 10 seasons on Happy Days (1974-84) made him one of the most recognized actors in the world. He won two consecutive Golden Globe Awards for Best Actor in a Comedy Series (1976 and 1977), and three Emmy nominations in the same category. He was honored with a “star” on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and the leather jacket the character wore has hung in The Smithsonian since 1980. “Fonzie’s” lunch box was recently added to the exhibit.

In 2003, he began writing a series of children’s novels with his partner, Lin Oliver, entitled, Hank Zipzer: The World’s Greatest Under-Achiever. The books are inspired by Winkler’s struggle throughout his education due to his learning challenges and have appeared on several Best Seller lists including The New York Times and The Los Angeles Times, among others.

In 2011 he published a collection of anecdotes and heartfelt observations I Never Met an Idiot on the River. The book is a collection of the lessons and photos Winkler gathered while fly fishing in Montana. Continuing his love for children’s books, Winkler released the first installment of a new series in January 2012 entitled Ghost Buddy #1: Zero to Hero.

Winkler will be starring in NBC’s celebrity adventure show Better Late Than Never, premiering in 2016. Taking a note from The Amazing Race, Winkler, alongside Terry Bradshaw, William Shatner and George Foreman, will be heading across Asia in search of new adventures and life-changing experiences in the highly anticipated new reality series.  

It should come as no surprise that Henry Winkler places great value on family. He currently lives in Los Angeles with his wife Stacey and their three children, Jed, Zoe and Max.
