American actor and playwright Woodrow Tracy Harrelson. He has won a Primetime Emmy and two Screen Actors Guild Awards and has been nominated for three Academy Awards and four Golden Globes, among other honors.
The portrayal of bartender Woody Boyd on the NBC comedy Cheers (1985–1993) brought Harrelson his first major recognition, and ultimately his first Primetime Emmy Award for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series from a total of five nominations.
He was nominated for a Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series after reprising his role in the hit spinoff series Frasier.
When She Was His Personal Assistant, He First Met His Wife
Before meeting his future wife Laura Louie, Harrelson was married to and divorced from Nancy Simon, daughter of Neil Simon, for a year in the 1980s.
In the early days of his amazing career, when he was on the hit series Cheers, she was hired as his secretary, and it was obvious that she left an impression on him.
Since then, everyone at Cheers has had an assistant since she was so helpful. She started working as my assistant the day we met and stayed in that role for the next three years,” he told The Hollywood Reporter. One of those things I wouldn’t accept myself was that I was drawn to my fantastic assistant.

To Express His Feelings to Her, He Sang a Song
He told The Hollywood Reporter that he eventually played a song for Laura when he could no longer contain his feelings and that to his astonishment, she felt the same way. Very little ambiguity there.
She tells me, “Woody, I’ve been in love with you for the last two and a half years,” after I play the song for her. My insecurities as a performer make me wonder, “What about the other six months?
My wife is more wonderful than I ever dreamed she’d be. They dated for a long time before getting married in 2008, and they seem to be very happy together.
Deni Montana Harrelson-louie, Their Daughter, Was Born in 1994
In 1994, the couple welcomed their first child, a daughter they named Deni. Harrelson has spoken publicly about how his daughter’s birth altered his life, despite the fact that he and his wife have kept her from the public eye and she does not have a social media profile of her own.
In 2008, he reminisced about the birth of his daughter Deni to Esquire, saying, “I remember her coming along, and she was so pure and compassionate of everybody and everything.”
“And this tiny person outwitted all the defenses — gun turrets, walls, moats, sentries — that had been woven around my heart. At the time, my soul required her presence. Parenthood, in my opinion, is the greatest blessing in life.
In 1996, Daughter Zoe Giordano Harrelson-louie Was Born
When Deni’s parents had their second child, Zoe, in 1996, Deni was instantly thrust into the role of big sister. Zoe has, like Deni, largely avoided the spotlight.
Nonetheless, she did deliver a Ted Talk–style presentation about the perils of cellphone use at her high school in 2015. In addition to starring alongside her father, Zoe was also included in the U2 documentary short Song for Someone.
His Family Gives Him Reason to Have Hope
He told Luftansa magazine that being around his loved ones always brightens his mood. No one is entitled to cynicism who has been blessed as I have. To my great fortune, I have a supportive family that helps keep me optimistic.
All that they do is driven more by emotion than reason. Also, a new generation is maturing, and they have a fresh outlook. That has nothing to do with the economy. My faith in a positive future has been restored thanks to these young people. A happy, celebratory household. This is a lovely thing to behold.
