[[AwesomeMcCoolName Warwick Davis]] (February 3, 1970-) is an English actor who would be the king of HeyItsThatGuy if not for the fact that he does most of his work under costumes and special effects makeup. Since his debut playing Wicket W. Warrick in ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'' at the age of twelve and his StarMakingRole in ''Film/{{Willow}}'' at the age of eighteen, he has gone on to play roles in many major franchises, including two different versions of ''Film/TheChroniclesOfNarnia'' and he played [[ActingForTwo three different]] [[LoadsAndLoadsOfRoles characters]] over the course of the ''Film/HarryPotter'' films. In TheNineties, he starred in his own series of [[Film/{{Leprechaun}} slasher films]], which may come as a surprise to fans who discovered him through his more family-friendly roles.

He stars in Creator/RickyGervais' 2011 series ''Series/LifesTooShort''.

He's 3'6", and co-founded a [[http://www.willowmanagement.co.uk/ talent agency]] that specializes in representing performers on the extreme ends of the height spectrum.

He's also recently founded his own theatre company, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin the Reduced Height Theatre Company]] as an opportunity for short actors to get away from the panto and sci fi and fantasy roles they usually get TypeCast in and prove their acting chops in the classical roles they usually don't play. They are currently touring the UK with a production of the classic farce ''See How They Run''

!!Notable Roles:

* ''Franchise/StarWars'': He got his start as Wicket the Ewok in ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'', and then later played multiple costumed aliens (along with an uncostumed cameo as part of the Podrace audience) in ''Film/ThePhantomMenace''. He will return for ''Film/TheForceAwakens'', though it is unlikely that he will be playing Wicket again.
* ''Film/{{Willow}}'' as Willow Ufgood, a role that George Lucas created specifically for him after being impressed by his performance in ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi''.
* ''Film/{{Labyrinth}}'' as a member of the Goblin Corps.
* The ''Film/{{Leprechaun}}'' series as the Leprechaun.
* ''Film/HarryPotter'' as Professor Filius Flitwick in every film of the series (except ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows Deathly Hallows, Part 1]]''), a goblin bank teller in the first film, and Griphook in the final two.
* ''Film/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy'' as the body of Marvin the Depressed Android. (Creator/AlanRickman played the character's voice.)
* ''Film/TheChroniclesOfNarnia'' as Reepicheep and Glimfeather in the 1980s BBC miniseries, and as Nikabrik in the 2000s film series.
* ''Series/{{Merlin}}'' as Grettir the Bridge-Keeper, a quintessential example of a OneSceneWonder.
* ''Series/DoctorWho'' as Porridge, the [[spoiler:Emperor of an entire galaxy]] who goes undercover to enjoy freedom and excitement for a while.
* In 2013 he [[GuestHost guest-hosted]] ''Series/HaveIGotNewsForYou''.
