Lorrie attended the University of Texas at Austin of which she came out with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 1975 at the age of 19. She did this in her quest to be better at what she loves doing. To shoot herself to stardom, her first point of call was the Broadway where she had her debut in “Musical Rex” the same year she graduated. She wanted a career in the screen, she started on the stage.
She began her career in Happy Days
Her first professional movie role was while she was yet to get her Bachelors in Fine Arts in 1974 when she featured in a movie named “Happy Days” (1974). And it was happy days in those days. We don’t reckon there is a lot of mayhem in the world and we don’t think you have to spend a fortune to woo the woman you love. It must have been the days of sweet rose flowers winning the days.
Her most popular and recognized movies are the aforementioned, then “Mork and Mindy” (1978), “Anson ‘n’ Lorrie” (a TV show she co-owned with her husband), “BJ and the Bear” (1978), and other numerous works of hers.
Her career perhaps kickstarted properly when she played “Jennifer”, a date to actor Anson Williams, (who later became her husband in one of the best fairytales ever told in the industry) who played “Potsie” in the movie, Happy Days.
She married her co-star and they have a daughter
Lorrie Mahaffey lived just like any teenager who believed in fairytales. She was able to create one of the most exciting fairytales in the movie industry.
Many watched the lovely, romantic, and cute scenes created by Potsie (Anson Williams) and Jennifer (Lorrie Mahaffey) in “Happy Days”‘ many thought they were just acting but it was more than acting; they were in love reliving on camera what they shared outside.
Anson Williams and Lorrie Mahaffey had been dating for 18 months before they acted love birds in “Happy Days” – who would have known? Their love life began when Williams met Lorrie Mahaffey performing in an Opryland Variety show in Nashville, Tennesse. Their love life blossomed and not quite long, they got married in 1978. While married, they started a TV show named, “Anson ‘n’ Lorrie” in 1981 where both of them performed together.
They were married for eight years. They divorced in 1986.
The union produced a daughter named Hannah. Her personal life besides her married and daughter has been vague. We believed that she remained single in the sense that she didn’t remarry which does not overrule her dating.
Lorrie Mahaffey is worth a little fortune
With the story surrounding Lorrie, one would expect her to be the typical money woman who has acquired much wealth for herself and her next generation. Not that she hasn’t done that and not that she has done so much of that. She is worth an estimated 1.5 million dollars as of 2021 and that is a fortune o not depending on how you rate stars. We think it is a small (fortune) or a (small) fortune – you choose.
