The Fonz Slams Critics

Published on December 24, 2006 with No Comments

Henry WinklerFormer Happy Days star Henry Winkler has leaped to the defence of pantomimes, insisting the often-ridiculed festive productions are worthwhile.

Winkler, best loved as TV hero The Fonz plays villainous Captain Hook in a London production of Peter Pan at the New Wimbledon Theatre.

And despite the suggestion he has been forced to take on the part after his screen career flopped, he insists there’s nothing in the world he’d rather be doing.

“I am a grateful man that I get to do what I dreamed of doing, everyday I love my job, I really do. And I don’t care what it is,” he says. “I was told that some people put panto down, and I would imagine those are people who have never tried it or have never done it, you know? I think there’s room for everything. Especially this moment when there is so much tension in the world, you can have a rollicking good time over the holidays.”
