Nelson grew up in Garden City Park, Long Island. From an early age, Haywood was in front of the cameras through appearing in numerous commercials, which subsequently encouraged him to continue with an acting 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 feature 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 cast himself in his own spin-off series “Grady” (1975-1976), portraying Haywood Marshall, so instituting a steady base to his net worth.

In 1976 Haywood was selected for the part of Dwayne Nelson 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 apparently somewhat reluctant, and rather disinterested in acting, but still accepted several roles, including as Kowalski in the film “Evilspeak” (1981), then he reprised the role of Dwayne Nelson in the spin-off series “What’s Happening Now!!” (1985-1988), and also appeared in one episode of the popular TV 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, currently little is known about Haywood in the media as he tends to keep his private affairs away from the public eye. However, it is known that he was married to Sheryl Piland from 1981 to 1984, and then married Diana Ramos in 1987, although now apparently divorced. He is the father of three children.
