“For me my first memory of Carrie was when I was 11 years old. Very new to the film industry, never been on a film set before, but what Carrie did was just made the whole experience to me fun. It wasn’t intimidating, it wasn’t daunting in any way it was just fun. And, you know being inside the ewok costume you get very hot and I remember every time I took the head off Carrie would be there checking on I was okay. She had chocolate milk and cookies. You know, whether she thought I needed. And she kinda became a very sort of on-set mother figure. Yeah, I just remember her humour, just making the whole experience fun.” — Warwick Davis about Carrie Fisher

11-year-old Warwick Davis and Carrie Fisher

“George Lucas, the creator of Star Wars, gave me the part of Wicket, the Ewok who has a five-minute scene with Carrie Fisher. Wicket finds Carrie, as Princess Leia, unconscious after she crashes her speeder bike.

When she appeared on set, Carrie showed her concern for my wellbeing in the sweltering Ewok costume. ‘Are you OK in there, Warwick?’ she said. 'It must be so hot.’

She reached down behind a log and pulled out a carton of chocolate milk with a long straw and fed me cookies in between takes. She was everything an 11-year-old Ewok could possibly wish for…” [Daily Mail interview covering Davis’ career]

Expecto Patronum! Matthew Lewis, Tom Felton and Warwick Davies discover their patronus. What’s your patronus?

Warwick Davis: Now finally, Ian, after 35 years as a major part of Star Wars, do you have any closing words for the fans?

Ian McDiramid: Well, interesting…One of the things I really admire about George as a person and George as the creator of this amazing saga, is his attention to great stories, great myths but also the present. Star Wars, as far as the emperor’s story is concerned, is about somebody who preaches democracy and acts as an authoritarian. And all I would say is that hasn’t gone away, probably won’t go away, there’s a lot of that about, so keep your wits about you.
