Heyyy! Happy Days as Spike meets ‘The Fonz’ on a photoshoot – cool!

Paul ‘Spike’ Reddington meets up with Children’s author and actor Henry ‘The Fonz’ Winkler OBE at a presentation for Achievement for All in Cotgrave, Nottingham.

I photographed Henry Winkler OBE at a presentation for ‘Achievement for All’ at a school in Cotgrave, Nottingham, tonight. Much loved as an actor, especially as ‘Fonzie’ in Happy Days, he is now a successful children’s author, despite having to deal with dyslexia.

He is one of the most charming men I’ve ever come across – no celebrity airs and graces and plenty of time for ‘normal’ people. I told him that I have a ‘Nip-It’ pinball machine which he remembered as the one in Arnold’s Cafe. Lovely guy, who was appointed an honorary OBE for his educational work on dyslexia in the UK.
