Everyone knows his face and for good reason, for many children of the 80s and 90s and for moviegoers, Warwick Davis is the face of the moving cult film Willow, but also a recurring character in the Star Wars sagas, Leprechaun or even Harry Potter. But the British actor is also a very caring husband and father.

The great happiness with Samantha

His handicap, a complex form of dwarfism called “congenital spondyloepiphyseal dysplasia”, Warwick Davis made it an asset and did not let it dictate his happiness. With his wife, Samantha Burroughs, also suffering from a form of dwarfism (called achondroplasia), he discovered the joy of love and the happiness of starting a family, after overcoming bereavement at an early age. Indeed, in 1989, the couple welcomed their first child named Lloyd, who unfortunately died after 9 days of life.

But Samantha and Warwick Davis did not let sadness overwhelm them and in 1993 their daughter Annabel was born, followed in 2003 by Harrison. Beaming with happiness, the whole family takes regular breaks at celebrations and red carpets to cheer on Warwick Davis, and also go to festivals without ever losing their smile, a characteristic sign of the Davis tribe!

Family moments like he loves at Camp Bestival

This summer, the family found themselves in Dorset for Camp Bestival, during which Warwick Davis was invited to do the show, which is truly the actor’s specialty. It was therefore with his family that he went to the last day of the festival, which gives great importance to folklore. On stage, it was he who introduced and introduced the artists present, Sinead O’Connor, Sophie Ellis-Bextor and Laura Mvula among others. With his wife Samantha and his children aged 16 and 11, Warwick Davis enjoyed a day of concerts and welcome attractions: indeed, the actor has not stopped filming in recent years! Between the Return of the Jedi where he played Ewok Wicket, the Harry Potter saga in which he lent his features to Flitwick and Gripsec, we can say that he wasted no time!
