English actor Warwick Davis was born in Epsom, Surrey, England, the son of an insurance broker and his wife. Davis was born with the condition spondyloepiphyseal dysplasia congenital (SED), which caused his dwarfism. He was educated at City of London Freemens School. When he was 11 years old, his grandmother heard a radio appeal for people under four feet tall to appear in Gwiezdne wojny: Czesc VI - Powrót Jedi (1983). A huge Star Wars fan, Davis auditioned successfully and was cast as an extra, playing an Ewok. Kenny Baker was cast as lead Ewok Wicket, but fell ill so George Lucas chose Davis to replace him. The film was a smash hit, and Davis went on to reprise his role as Wicket in further TV projects - Przygoda wsród Ewoków (1984) and Star Wars: Ewoki - Bitwa o Endor (1985).Davis next big role came with a part specifically written for him, as the titular hero in Willow (1988). Other successes followed with roles in such projects as Prince Caspian and the Voyage of the Dawn Treader (1989) and two distinctly different film series - the Harry Potter and Leprechaun film series. In 2006, he appeared in a cameo role in Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchants hit sitcom Statysci (2005), which led to the pair writing a series specifically for Davis, the comic mockumentary Lifes Too Short (2011).Davis, along with his father-in-law Peter Burroughs, is also the director of an acting agency for very short and tall actors called Willow Management. He is married to Samantha Davis and they have a son and a daughter.. Date of Birth, 3February 1970,Epsom, Surrey, England, UK ,Birth Name,Warwick Ashley Davis,Height, 36(1.07m)
