Warwick Ashley Davis (born 3 February 1970) is an English actor, television presenter, writer, director and producer. He played the title characters in Willow and the Leprechaun film series, the Ewok Wicket in Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi and Professor Filius Flitwick and Griphook in the Harry Potter films. Davis also starred as a fictionalized version of himself in the sitcom Life's Too Short, written and directed by Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant.
Unlike most dwarfs (70%) who have a condition called achondroplasia, Davis' dwarfism is caused by an extremely rare genetic condition called spondyloepiphyseal dysplasia congenita (SED). He has said the only real drawback to being small was the associated health problems. Of his own dwarfism, Davis has said, "As you get older, you can suffer from painful hips, and our joints wear a lot quicker than for people of average height".
Davis is married to Samantha Burroughs (b.1971) and they have four children, sons Lloyd (b.1991-d.1991), George (b.1993-d.1993) and Harrison (b.2003) and a daughter Annabelle (b.1997). They live in Holme near Peterborough, Cambridgeshire. Annabelle stars in the CBBC show, The Dumping Ground as Sasha Bellman.
Davis' wife, Samantha has achondroplasia and their two children also have SED. As a result of having different causes of dwarfism, the couple's two older sons, Lloyd and George, died shortly after birth, having had a fatal combination of the conditions. Samantha is the daughter of his business partner Peter Burroughs, and the sister of actress Hayley Burroughs. Davis met the Burroughs family while filming Willow, where they had minor roles as Nelwyn villagers.
