English actor. He is noted for having dwarfism, standing only 3 ft 6 in (1.07 m) tall. Davis is probably best known as the title character in Willow, Wicket W. Warrick in Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi, Professor Filius Flitwick in the Harry Potter movies, the title character in Leprechaun and its sequels and as Marvin the Paranoid Android in The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, and as Reepicheep in the BBC versions of Prince Caspian and Voyage of the Dawn Treader.
In 1987, Davis was called to Elstree Studios in London to meet with Ron Howard and George Lucas to discuss a new movie project called Willow, which was written with Warwick specifically in mind. Willow was Warwick’s first opportunity to act with his face visible. He co-starred with Val Kilmer in the film, which received a Royal Premiere before the Prince and Princess of Wales. He then went back to television to be in the BBC television adaptation of the classic The Chronicles of Narnia, specifically in The Voyage of the Dawn Treader (as Reepicheep) and The Silver Chair (as Glimfeather).’
It was then, in 1993, that he played the villain in Leprechaun, something that he really had been wanting to do. He then returned to the Star Wars universe, playing 3 roles in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace: Weazel, a gambler sitting next to Watto at the Podrace; Wald, who was Anakin’s Rodian buddy; and Yoda in scenes where Yoda was walking.
