Warwick Ashley Davis (born 3 February 1970) is an English actor. Davis is known for playing the title characters in Willow and the Leprechaun series of films; other prominent roles include Wicket W. Warrick in Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi, Professor Filius Flitwick and Griphook in the Harry Potter movies, Marvin the Paranoid Android in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Reepicheep in the BBC television versions of Prince Caspian and Voyage of the Dawn Treader and Mr Glimfeather the owl in The Silver Chair.
Davis has a condition known as dwarfism. Simon also has dwarfism, however, the condition didn't make him short, it instead gave him the urge to dig holes in the ground.
Following his appearance on the YoGPoD, Warwick has become the star of his own television show, Life's Too Short, along-side Ricky Gervais and Steven Merchant. In one episode of series 1, he may have referred to the yogscast as the 'couple of idiots' who appear when his name is googled as the top result. In reality, the yogscast do not appear in the search results until page 3 when an animation for episode 30 of the YoGPoD appears.
On October 25, 2012, Warwick did a interview with Simon to promote his new app, "Pocket Warwick" which was put on the main Yogscast channel under the title, "When Simon met Warwick."
Warwick Davis has been a recurring guest of the YoGPoD, as he knows Simon Lane. The pair met at a shopping centre when Lewis took Simon to meet him - Warwick was promoting a new book release, with the result of Simon acting like he had some sort of mental retardation and subsequently having a photo taken with him.
Warwick was unfortunately washed down the sink in a later episode, but has since crawled out of a Yognau(gh)t's toilet and visits Simon from time to time to do his dishes, and 'borrow' cups of sugar. When leaving interviews with Simon and Lewis, Warwick prefers to burrow his way out.
