Warwick Davis
If it hadn’t been for his grandmother listening keenly to the radio back in 1981, actor Warwick Davis may not be the huge television and film star that he is today. Hearing an announcement calling for people under four feet tall to play Ewoks in the new Star Wars movie, The Return of the Jedi, Warwick’s grandmother urged him to audition.

A great actor from the start, Warwick imitated his dog’s head-tilts during his audition. The casting crew were so impressed that when Kenny Baker, the actor who was initially cast to play the lead Ewok Wicket, fell ill, Warwick was chosen to replace him. This was the beginning of a journey of a lifetime that would take Warwick to Narnia, Hogwarts, a number of faraway galaxies, and now across London at Christmastime in his role in Get Santa.

When Warwick isn’t gracing a screen, he helps other people to do so, as he’s the director of an acting agency for very short and tall actors called Willow Management.
