Warwick Davis Biography
(English Actor Known for His Roles in the Films: ‘Willow’ and ‘Leprechaun’)
Birthday: February 3, 1970 (Aquarius)
Born In: Epsom, Surrey, England
Warwick Davis is an English actor, TV presenter, director, writer, and producer. He is best known for his performances in the sitcom ‘Life’s Too Short’ and in ‘Star Wars’ and ‘Harry Potter’ films. Born and raised in Surrey, England, Warwick suffers from a very rare form of dwarfism since birth. His foray into acting was an accident. When he was 11 years old, his grandmother heard a radio announcement about the requirement of people shorter than four feet for the film ‘Return of the Jedi.’ The film released in 1983 and became one of Hollywood’s biggest motion pictures ever and Warwick’s ticket to stardom. The path-breaking success of his debut film paved Warwick’s way to star in more films, such as ‘Labyrinth,’ ‘Zorro,’ ‘Leprechaun,’ and ‘Gulliver’s Travels.’ Since 2001, he has appeared in every ‘Harry Potter’ film, playing different roles. After starring in many more films through the 2000s and the 2010s, he appeared in the 2011 mockumentary sitcom ‘Life’s Too Short,’ where he played a fictionalized version of himself. Warwick’s autobiography, ‘Size Matters Not,’ features a foreword by acclaimed filmmaker George Lucas.
