Publisher Description

The life and times of Warwick Davis, star of Ricky Gervais’ sitcom, Life’s Too Short

Actors work their entire careers hoping to achieve the kind of cult movie hero status that Davis achieved at the age of eleven playing Wicket W. Warrick, the lead ewok in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. In this lively and down-to-earth memoir, Davis offers personal stories on the making of some of the most popular films of the last few decades—including the Star Wars, Harry Potter, and Leprechaun movie franchises, among many others—and shares the unique perspective of life as experienced by someone with a one-in-a-million genetic condition.

Here is the story of the real life of the man who helped destroy a Death Star, saved a princess, defeated an evil sorceress, taught magic to Harry Potter, became a Jedi Master, and embodied a mass murdering, gold-obsessed leprechaun—the one and only Warwick Davis.

Warwick Davis’ honest look at the highs and lows of life as an actor and pop-culture icon ranges from his screen debut in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi to his starring role in Ricky Gervais’ sitcom, Life’s Too Short.

Includes behind-the-scenes stories, from sweltering inside a furry Ewok costume and filling in for R2-D2 to sliding down a glacier at Mach 2 with Val Kilmer and getting kicked in the face by Ricky Gervais again and again. The book features a foreword by George Lucas, who has been friends with Davis for three decades.

Both refreshingly frank and highly entertaining, this book will help you see what life is like when it really is too short.

  • “In Size Matters Not, this big-hearted man reflects on his life on and off screen; in private life and our shared public mythology. Like the man himself, far more than a novelty.”

    - Barnes&, editorial review
  • “A must for film fans.”

    - News of the World (UK)
  • “A hugely entertaining memoir.”

    - Yorkshire Post (England)
  • “Narrator Gideon Emery has as much fun as you’d expect with a feel-good story like this. His clear, deep English-accented voice captures the essence of the author’s life and words. Emery truly leads listeners through the story—as opposed to simply reading it—and he does a cracking good job of it. He nails the book’s ironic tone—and delivers a wonderful American accent as well.”

    " Warwick Davis´ memoir is not exactly self-deprecating, but it is very candid, and very funny. If you're not familliar with Davis´ filmography, you'll be surprised at how extensive it is, and how many big movie projects he's been involved in. If you're simply a movie buff, this book is a treat. But it also offers a unique look into the daily trials and tribulations of a person with Davis´ physical attributes. It's not soppy or self-pitying, just very matter of fact. This self-biography comes highly recommended! "
