Default Anson Williams files for divorce from wife Jackie Williams after more than 30 years

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbi...-30-years.html

Happy Days star Anson Williams has filed for divorce from his wife Jackie Williams.

Williams, 69, filed divorce papers on Wednesday, TMZ reported. The Happy Days actor and Jackie initially tied the knot in 1988, two years after his split from first wife Lorrie Mahaffey, who he wed in 1978.

'Despite best efforts to work things out or make allowances, and as difficult as it is, sometimes you have to do what's best for everyone,' Williams, who played Potsie Weber on the iconic TV series, told the outlet.

The veteran actor has four children with Jackie and one child with Mahaffey.

He appeared on Happy Days for the 10-year duration of the show, from 1974 until 1984, and got a Golden Globe nod in 1983 for best supporting actor on the ABC series. He was a stalwart of the show's ensemble cast of Henry Winkler, Ron Howard, Marion Ross, Don Most and the late Erin Moran and Tom Bosley.

Williams said that the cast continues to remain close to this day, some 34 years after the show went off the air.

'It's really unusual,' he told WHYY in May. 'We've been through marriages, divorces, deaths, hard times, good times. It's like we're families that stay together through thick and thin for four decades. We're all just a phone call away.'

Like Howard, he's taken his career behind the scenes since wrapping up on the iconic sitcom, as he's directed on series such as Beverly Hills, 90210, Melrose Place, Lizzie McGuire, Sabrina the Teenage Witch and The Secret Life of the American Teenager.

Williams told the outlet that working with late Happy Days creator Garry Marshall 'was like having the greatest college professor in the world.

'He opened the whole studio to us. I was able to be right next to [director Roman] Polanski while he was doing back lot on Chinatown. That was my directing education and Garry made that possible.'

Williams earlier this year returned to his acting roots with a role in the Delaware Theatre Company's production of Middletown, filling in for Happy Days castmate Most in the Dan Clancy play.

Oh ... that's a shame.
