Welcome to the world of Maude Garrett

Willow Ufgood

Just a little fun fact for you:

One of my favourite movies growing up was Willow. The lead character who played Willow is Warwick Davies.

DID YOU KNOW

He first played Wicket – the lead Ewok – in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi?

Yes, inside that cute little Ewok suit was Warwick. At the time of filming he was 2’11″ tall and only 11 years old. He also landed two TV spin-offs playing the Ewok. Funnily enough, he scored the lead role of Willow which was written by George Lucas, who wrote all of the Star Wars movies! (He makes a small appearance in Star Wars: The Phantom Menace in 1999. Twice).

He was a father of 2 young children in Willow, even though he was only 18 years old during the time of filming (and how cute were those kids)! He met his future wife on the set of the movie, she played an extra.

Fast forward to Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy in 2005, and you’ll surely remember the robot ‘Marvin’. He may have been voiced by Alan Rickman, but guess who was inside? Yep. Warwick.

He and Alan coincidentally BOTH play Hogwarts teachers in the Harry Potter movies. Warwick is Professor Flitwick! I know!!

Just to tick every major fantasy/sci-fi movie box, he also starred in Narnia: Prince Caspian in ’08.

This guy is a legend.
