Anson Williams (born September 25, 1949) is an American actor and director, best known for his role as gullible but well-intentioned singer Warren “Potsie” Weber on the beloved television series Happy Days. Williams was born Anson William Heimlich in Los Angeles, California. His father, Haskell, legally changed the original spelling of their family name to “Heimlick”, 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 celebrated television series Happy Days. (Only Williams, Howard and Ross reprised their roles for the spin-off). 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. (Bio courtesy of Wikipedia.)
Despite his success as a director and distinctive producer, Anson Williams has occasionally returned to his work on Happy Days in retrospective ways. He played himself in a 1996 Happy Days-themed Boy Meets World episode (which also featured former cast mates Tom Bosley and Pat Morita). While directing a 2003 episode of Sabrina the Teenage Witch titled “Sabrina in Wonderland”, he appeared as Potsie in a fantasy sequence. He also joined his fellow Happy Days cast members for reunion specials in 1992 and 2005. Williams is also a businessman. He founded Starmaker Products, a cosmetics company, and was a featured speaker at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office’s National Trademark Expo in April 2008, at which he talked about the importance of registered trademarks for small businesses.
