Nelson is a New York native, and grew up in Garden City Park, Long Island. From an early age, Haywood was in front of the cameras, appearing in numerous commercials, which only encouraged him to continue with his career as he got older. He made his debut acting appearance in the TV soap opera “As The World Turns” (1971-1974), and in 1974 made his 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 Marsha, who is Grady`s grandson, and the same year managed to be cast in his own spin-off series “Grady” (1975-1976), portraying Haywood Marshall.

In 1976 Haywood was selected for the part of Dwayne Nelosn in the TV series “What`s Happening” (1976-1979); 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 reluctant, and apparently wasn`t quite so interested in acting, but still accepted several roles, including Kowalski in the film “Evilspeak” (1981), a role which he repeated in the role of Dwayne Nelson in the spin-off series “What’s Happening Now!!” (1985-1988), and he also appeared in one episode of the series “Dragnet” (1990), all of which helped increase further his net worth.

Although he retired from acting, Haywood has stayed in the entertainment industry until 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” (2006), “TV Land Confidential” (2007), “Unsung Hollywood” (2014), among others, which also added steadily to his net worth.

Regarding his personal life, little is known about Haywood in the media as he tends to keep his life away from the public eye. However, it is known that he is divorced and is the father of three children, although the name of his ex-wife and further details about their marriage remain unknown.
