Warwick Davis on how Star Wars changed his life

Thursday, May 25, 2017

Warwick Davis spoke to James Whale and Ash tonight about how his life changed after becoming a furry alien warrior.

On the 40th anniversary of the first Star Wars film, Davis, who starred as an Ewok in Return of the Jedi, told us about his amazing experience in the film - and revealed he was cast when he was only 11 years old.

Davis, who has since gone on to star in films such as Willow and the hit TV series Life's Too Short, went on to discuss his amazing 35-year-career in the entertainment industry.

When asked whether he'd consider a part Game of Thrones, Davis "it's already finished" and admitted he hadn't seen the programme. However James was insistent, telling him he had to get involved in the show and pointing out that its resident dwarf star, Peter Dinklage, gets loads of sex.
