He’s famous for being cool but it seems that the actor behind iconic character The Fonz, Henry Winkler, is not so cool about signing autographs for fans without being paid.

Winkler is one of a number of actors who are listed as special guests at the Comic Convention (Comic Con) which is taking place this weekend at the ExCel Centre in the Docklands area of London.

While he is charging the most, a hefty £20, many others are charging a lesser £15.

These include EastEnders Shane Richie, Nina Wadia and John Altman.

Also charging £15 is James Cosmo, who plays Lord Mormont in Game of Thrones.

Many other actors are signing autographs for free.

However, some comic fans could consider this a bargain as, according to Gawker, Sylvester Stallone charged around £230 per autograph at a New York Comic Con in 2013.

A spokesperson for Comic Con said that autographs are just a small part of the London Comic Con and those who do not want to pay for autographs will have a lot more to do.

Henry Winkler and Shane Richie will be appearing on Sunday only.
