More about Eddie Mekka’s Career & Life

According to reviews about Blansky’s Beauties, the 1977 series was not a success; however, Eddie’s role on Laverne & Shirley from 1976 to 1983 led him to national recognition and his signature role for the first time in this career.

Starting to follow his big reputation, the talented actor appeared on other well-known 70s and 80s series such as Moonlighting, Family Matters, and The Love Boat.

Beaches (1989), A League of Their Own (1992), Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star (2003), Dreamgirls (2006), and Hail Mary! (2018) are some good examples of his film credits.

Besides staring at movies and series, he got several guest roles on shows as well into the 21st Century as Children’s Hospital, The Young & The Restless, and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

In one of his interviews, Eddie once said: “I’m glad I was trained in the theater because I think TV makes you lazy. You can always do another take in a film or on TV, while onstage you have to deliver 100 percent all the time.? I was acting for the back row, and [director] Gary Marshall told me to pull it back to Cleveland.”
