Looks like the majority of his roles were of the "alsø alsø wik" variety

/just short appearances

He had to watch a lot of good, young ewoks die on that forest moon and had to do terrible things to Imperial troops, man. Sometimes a veteran of the Battle of Endor has to do whatever he can to blot out the memories of war and the ceaseless, squeaky screams of "yub nub" that haunt him like echoes from the past.

Heh!
 
2014-07-20 01:34:36 PM  
How low has he sunk? Is he working for the Daily Mail yet.
 
2014-07-20 01:35:34 PM  
At least he's managed to stay out of prison, so it could be worse.

His agent is "Warwick Davies" who also worked on ROTJ....


I wonder if that agent is related to Warwick Davis,who is actually the pictured Ewok in the article.

The guy blows all of his money on hookers and blow, and we are supposed to wonder why his agent hasn't contacted him in 2 years?

I can't really blame the guy. Life's short.

At least he didn't waste his money...

Good luck to him on his recovery. Remember, you can't fix your whole life in a day. Take a few tiny, small steps every day.

This had to be the best Val Kilmer role I've seen in many years.
 
2014-07-20 03:31:02 PM  
Due to the gawdawful costumes in the Redwood Forest miserable conditions, most of the little people actors were loaded.  Because Davis was underage, that's how a 15-year old became the hero Ewok Wicket.  Subby & Daily Fail: nothin' wrong with Polish lager(how can they tell it's outta date?)
 
2014-07-20 03:48:15 PM  
Well sure he lost all of his money,  opening a theme park is expensive.

Yes, it's the same person. Warwick Davis co-owns Willow Management, a talent agency created specifically for short actors (under 5 ft). They also represent actors who are around 7 ft or taller.

It's the  only role I've seen him in many years. Last thing I saw him in was Kiss Kiss Bang Bang about a decade ago.

So are they responsible for Tom Cruise's losing streak? He should go back to his old agent.

Yes, I was just making fun of the Daily Mail and their shameful "investigative" skills.

Is he still a midget? Still looks short to me.

He was 12, and he took over from Billy Barty.
 
2014-07-20 05:41:54 PM  
So I guess snorting coke and drinking still-fresh lager would be perfectly fine, then.
 
2014-07-20 05:45:24 PM  
Oh, uh, Fielding? Got any spare change for the vending machine? I'm a little... short right now.

Did you hear me, Fielding? I said, I'm a little... *short* right now. Anything you'd care to say?
 
2014-07-20 05:58:55 PM  
I was a professional Ewok in the '80s when I was a kid. The costume I wore was allegedly used in the movie. I can still remember the stench of that heat trap.

If you have a childhood picture of you and an Ewok at a shabby mall in central or south Texas, chances are it was me.
 
2014-07-20 06:22:19 PM  
There was an Ewok other than Warwick Davis?

Paploo, who was played by Kenny Baker (R2-D2). He's the Ewok who stole a guard's speeder bike during the Battle of Endor.

I ran into a ewok-looking dog recently, and after talking to his owner, found out that Ewok faces were based on the Brussels Griffon (link goes to GIS). Apparently someone related to the production (Lucas perhaps?) owned some.

They showed us the stars, man...the stars!! But you don't know how big the sky is when you never seen it. Maybe too big, heh? I sit around now most days. Maybe the guy will come around with some death sticks, but that ain't no problem. I haven't eaten real food since I left that moon, man. Not that any of these kids would know: it's all pod racers and holo vids and life day presents and bullshiat now. Hanging out at the cantina with...with...well, you know. So I drink a bit and try to forget saving the whole farking universe. If it was worth saving anyways. "BIG" hero hardeeharhar. I sometimes get to thinking that the day that Princess darkened the door of my treehouse was the worst thing that ever happened to me.
