Henry Winkler is an actor who has stood the test of time and is winning. The actor is known by those fans who are in their early 40's and older as Arthur Fonzarelli from the hit televsion show from the 1970s', "Happy Days". However, to fans who are under 40 years of age this talented actor is known for roles varying from Coach Klein in "The Waterboy", Eddie Lawson in "Royal Pains" and Sy Mittleman in "Children's Hospital".
The fact that he has been able to connect with new audiences throughout his career is indicative of his exceptional acting ability. In a recent interview with 'Parade' he expressed his gratitude at the fact that young kids who are 15 years of age will sometimes stop him on the street and say "Wow, Eddie!" As an actor this is proof that you are connecting with your audience and it is very likely why he has been able to work so consistently as an actor in Hollywood.
When one looks at the acting resume of Henry Winkler one of the things that stands out is that he always seems to be employed and working. In a industry where the majority of actors are unemployed he is almost never without work and often has two or three projects in process at the same time.
He was asked during the interview about the advice he would give young people navigating their careers and he explained that while he is a worrier he learned that did not help him be successful. What helped him be successful was the realization that "knowing what you want gets you where you want to go".
Henry Winkler knows that he wants to communicate and educate through acting and that is very likely why he has always been in such great demand as an actor and still is a valued commodity as an entertainment professional either in front or behind the camera.
