Actor Warwick Davis joined Jon Holmes to discuss his latest musical, Stranger Things and Solo: A Star Wars Story.

Davis' latest project is producing musical Eugenius!, which is about a boy who dreams of heroes and villains and making a comic book movie in Hollywood. He also been on set for Solo: A Star Wars Story, which will be released in May next year.

Unfortunately Davis said "I can’t tell you anything about it" but did admit because he was working with Ron Howard who also directed Willow, "at times I had to remind myself we were doing Star Wars not Willow 2."

But he could talk about Eugenius! and said he wanted to be part of the musical because he could see the passion behind its creators and "believe it or not I don’t do this for the money, I do it because I love doing it. I love to entertain people."

He also revealed that: "producing is about sometimes compromising and making things the best they can for the least amount of money and I’m no good at that. I throw everything at it."

Davis said about the 1980s: "I don’t think any other decade is quite like it" while talking about Stranger Things. He added: "My kids love it and they don’t get all the references."

The actor also spoke about presenting quiz show Tenable and explained "some teams I really do [want them to win]. Some teams not so much because I’m like 'you didn’t deserve to win any because you gave some stupid answers and you were cocky at the beginning'."
