American actor Haywood Nelson was born on the 25th March 1960 in New York City, and is possibly still best known to the world for playing Dwayne Nelson in the TV series “What`s Happening” from 1976 to ‘79, and it`s spin-off “What`s Happening Now!!” from 1985 to ‘88.
Have you ever wondered how rich Haywood Nelson is, as of mid-2017? According to celebrity dot money, it has been estimated that Nelson`s net worth is as high as $700,000, an amount earned through his career in the entertainment industry, which began in 1974.
Nelson grew up in Garden City Park, Long Island. From an early age, Haywood was in front of the cameras through appearing in numerous commercials, which subsequently encouraged him to continue with an acting career as he got older. He made his debut acting appearance in the TV soap opera “As the World Turns” from 1971 to ‘74, and in 1974 made his feature film debut in “Mixed Company”, starring Tom Bosley and Joseph Bologna. In 1975 he made an appearance in the TV series “Sanford and Son” as Haywood Marshall, who is Grady`s grandson, and the same year reprised the role in the spin-off series “Grady”, from 1975 to ‘76, so instituting a steady base to his net worth.
In 1976 Haywood was selected for the part of Dwayne Nelson in the TV series “What`s Happening” through 1979; this role became the hallmark of his career, and it certainly increased his net worth by a large margin. After the show ended, Haywood returned to search for new roles, but was apparently somewhat reluctant, and rather disinterested in acting, but still accepted several roles, including as Kowalski in the film “Evilspeak” in 1981, then reprising the role of Dwayne Nelson in the spin-off series “What's Happening Now!!” from 1985 to ‘88, and he also appeared in one episode of the popular TV series “Dragnet” in 1990, all of which helped increase further his net worth.
Although he retired from acting, Haywood has continued in the entertainment industry until the present day, mostly working behind the cameras, as he is digital media executive of IEG Holding. Furthermore, he has appeared in several talk shows and documentaries, including “The 100 Greatest TV Quotes & Catchphrases” in 2006, “TV Land Confidential” the following year, and “Unsung Hollywood” in 2014 among others, which also added steadily to his net worth.
Regarding his personal life, currently little is known about Haywood in the media as he tends to keep his private affairs away from the public eye. However, it is known that he was married to Sheryl Piland from 1981 to 1984, and then married Diana Ramos in 1987, although now apparently divorced. He is the father of three children.
