Henry Winkler is Born

Henry Winkler was born on October 30, 1945.
October 30, 1945On this day in 1945, Henry Winkler, best known for his role as Fonzie in the TV sitcom Happy Days was born in New York City. Many are not aware that Winkler actually earned a master’s degree in acting from the Yale School of Drama. Originally intended to be a minor character on the show, Winkler took on leather coated greaser in his late 20’s, a role that was inspired by The Lords of Flatbush. Soon, kids all over where telling others to “Sit on it” and “Aayy!” while carrying their Fonzie lunch box. Perhaps his better achievement has been his marriage to wife Stacey since 1978.
