Beloved to audiences as “The Fonz” on Happy Days, Henry Winkler is deeply saddened by the premature passing of fellow TV icon, Diff’rent Strokes star Gary Coleman. “You know what? Maybe for the first time in his life, Gary’s at peace,” Henry told In Touch at Vanity Fair’s celebration of the second season of Royal Pains at the Lacoste store in New York, which benefited international humanitarian organization Doctors Without Borders. Henry, 64, recently joined the cast of the USA Network hit as Eddie Lawson, the father of Hank (Mark Feurstein) and Evan (Paulo Costanzo). “Evan loves me, but I have to win over Hank — he’s not so easy,” Henry reveals. “Is it because I left when my wife was sick and left the boys alone or because I borrowed money and never paid them back?” Despite his character Eddie’s past shadiness, Henry says the deadbeat dad isn’t all bad. “He has an unbelievably good heart and is completely misunderstood,” he says. “And you know how Hank is able to ‘MacGyver’ all of his medicine — where do think he learned that from?” Royal Pains premieres on USA Network on Thursday, June 3, at 10 p.m. ET.
