Actor Anson Williams, best known for his role as Potsie on the television sitcom Happy Days, has a net worth of $1.8 million. And while that net worth, may not come close to his Happy Days co-star Ron Howard's it's still not bad for someone best known for a 70s sitcom. Williams' was born as Anson Heimlick, the similarity of which to the name "Heimlich" of the Heimlich maneuver is not coincidental. Anson's father Haskell's second cousin is the doctor who invented the famous life saving maneuver, who did not change the spelling of his German last name (unlike Haskell). After appearing in small school productions, Williams landed the role of Potsie in 1972, but it wasn't on Happy Days that the character first appeared. It was on the television anthology show Love, American Style, which later inspired Happy Days. Since the end of Happy Days, Williams has mostly found work as a television director, directing episodes of shows like Beverly Hills, 90210, The Secret Life of the American Teenager, and Sabrina the Teenage Witch. He hasn't given up acting altogether, though, having appeared as Potsie in various retrospective Happy Days specials, including a Happy Days-themed episode of the TV sitcom Boy Meets World.
Anson Williams (born September 25, 1949) is an actor and director, best known for his role as gullible but well intentioned singer Warren "Potsie" Weber on the television series Happy Days.
Williams was born Anson William Heimlick in Los Angeles, California. His father Haskell legally changed the original spelling of their family name from "Heimlich", unlike Williams' second cousin, Dr. Henry Heimlich, namesake of the Heimlich maneuver for treating choking victims. Williams attended high school, where he was captain of the track team and acted in multiple school productions.
In 1972, Williams landed the role of "Potsie" in a segment of the comedy-anthology series Love, American Style titled "Love and the Happy Days", which also introduced Richie Cunningham (Ron Howard), Richie's mother Marion (Marion Ross), and other characters that would be spun off into the television series Happy Days. (Only Williams, Howard and Ross reprised their roles for the spin-off). The new series' first season, during which Williams received second billing after Howard, was centered mainly on Richie and Potsie. Eventually, as break-out character Arthur "Fonzie" Fonzarelli (Henry Winkler) and Richie's mother, father and sister became more popular, Potsie was joined with Ralph (Donny Most, who was merely a side character in season one), and Potsie and Ralph became inseparable.
Unlike Howard and Most, Williams was one of the few to remain through the entire run of the series, although his appearances became less frequent in later seasons. In some episodes, Richie, Potsie and Ralph formed a band combo that performed at Arnold's Drive-In and other places. As Potsie, Williams actually sang lead vocals for the group. Williams' first wife, Lorrie Mahaffey, portrayed Potsie's girlfriend, Jennifer, in later seasons.
After Happy Days, Williams began a much more prolific career as a television director, starting with short programs for adolescent-age children, including after-school speci
