Fonzy et Liverpool

Message  M'sieur l'marquis le Mar 5 Jan - 15:26

Pour moi, Fonzy (happy days) est un Dieu. Il vient de passer plusieurs semaines à Liverpool pour le rôle du Capitaine crochet dans une version théatrale de Peter Pan :
THE pirates have been vanquished, the Lost Boys have been found and Captain Hook has been eaten by the tick-tock crocodile for the very last time. Empire panto Peter Pan is over and its genial American star Henry Winkler says he’s had an absolute ball.
The 64-year-old has embraced – and been embraced by – Liverpool. Quite literally a lot of the time.
“I don’t think there is one detail that would keep me away from Liverpool,” he tells me as he tucks into ‘British chocolate-covered mints’ (“oh my God, they’re good!” he exclaims) in his Old Hall Street apartment.
“Everybody that I’ve met – when people stop me on the street they stop me as if I’m their cousin. I’m treated to such warmth. They’re happy to see me, I’m happy to see them, we hug.
“I’ve been treated like family here in the city.”
Which is good news for the New York-born, Los Angeles-based actor – and possibly the nicest man in showbiz – who has had his fourth consecutive Christmas away from his own family, including a new granddaughter Indya Belle.
And instead of a Winkler get-together on the all together more balmy Californian coast, the Happy Days legend spent the big day in suburban Liverpool with co-star Natasha Hamilton – aka Peter Pan – and her family.
“I had a wonderful time,” he enthuses. “Natasha has a lovely, lovely family.
“We went to this restaurant in her neighbourhood with her sons and her mum and dad, her sister and her sister’s boyfriend who is just back from Iraq – he just recovered from a major bunch of injuries and he’s doing great.
“It was lovely and warm and her children are really nice people. Because of what I do I meet a lot of children on this planet, so you can instantly look in somebody’s eyes and know who’s home. They’re lovely.
“Her dad is like a historian so he kept telling me about the interesting things through the years in Liverpool.”
The last six weeks are the first time the actor has visited the city since he was a 14-year-old schoolboy, and before he arrived to star in Pan alongside Natasha and ‘dame’ Les Dennis he had grand plans to explore the sights, particularly those connected with the Beatles.
But he reveals he hasn’t had as much time to look around as he had hoped, with the twice-daily visit to Neverland proving a punishing schedule.
“I haven’t been able to do a lot,” says Henry. “But I walk around and go into the shops and I bought my sons T-shirts from the Cavern. They’re very lovely people there.
“Also I really wanted to see those men in the ocean at Crosby and I never got there either.”

Henry Winkler

He has though, it appears, embraced another slice of the city’s culture, attending the Liverpool-Everton derby match.
“It was my first live football game,” Henry recalls. “I have to tell you, I loved it.
“The cheering is so much more rhythmic than it is at home. At home it’s just noise, and here it’s like they’re chants and I thought that was great.
“And I also thought watching the game, you literally see in person the poetry of motion. Holy mackerel, it’s very exciting!
“My son played soccer, and for years I stood on the sideline, but you don’t see it in the same way.
“It’s really fabulous.”
