CARMEL, Ind. - Actor, director, producer and writer Henry Winkler was in Indianapolis on Wednesday and reflected on his life and career.
Winkler spoke at The Barrington of Carmel retirement community and shared stories about his past. He also spoke about his passion when it comes to helping people.
Winkler spoke about his work with Robin Williams, dating back to when he stepped on the set of the 70s sitcom "Happy Days" as Mork from Ork.
Winkler said he was fortunate to have been there at the beginning of Williams’ career. He spoke about the terrible loss of a friend and fellow actor.
"This very quiet, gentle man walks in and as soon as he starts working, you are standing in the middle of the Fourth of July. All of a sudden, there are fireworks going off around you. That was stunning. There is no other way to say that and it just poured out of him like Niagara Falls," Winkler said.
Winkler now travels the country and speaks about how he grew up facing learning challenges due to undiagnosed dyslexia.
He has written several books -- including stories aimed at inspiring kids with learning challenges and those who have a hard time finding a sense of belonging.
