Annabelle Davis was born on March 28, 1997, in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, England, to actor Samantha and actor, director, and producer Warwick Davis. Both her parents were dwarfs. She inherited spondyloepiphyseal dysplasia congenita from her father, and that affected her growth.
She spent the first two months of her life in a special care unit, on ventilation, and doctors were not very hopeful that she would live through the ordeal. However, she overcame the most difficult period of her life and survived to live a near-normal life afterward. Although she is just 3 feet and 11 inches (1.2 meters) tall and weighs only 35 kilograms, she has learned how to face life on her own.
Annabelle took her A-Levels in media, art, IT, and textiles at the ‘Sawtry Village Academy.’ She started acting at the age of twelve and had to have a tutor on the sets to keep up with her work at school.
During her younger days, she spent a lot of time with her father on the sets of his movies. She celebrated her thirteenth birthday at the ‘Great Hall’ at ‘Hogwarts’ with the entire cast of ‘Harry Potter.’ This inspired her to take up acting as a career and follow in her father’s footsteps.
She made her big break in the entertainment industry with the role of ‘Sasha Bellman’ in the children’s drama series ‘The Dumping Ground’ in 2015 and in its spinoff, ‘The Dumping Ground: I’m...,’ in 2016. At the age of nineteen, she was a celebrity and an inspiration for others with similar issues in life.
She was made the patron of the ‘YPCS’ in 2018, and created their first community hub, ‘The Annabelle Davis Centre.’ She is actively involved in social service and helps people like her live a normal life.
