Warwick Davis, who portrayed both Professor Flitwick and Griphook in the Harry Potter films, is also known for another big fandom role – as Wicket the Ewok from Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. Becoming a part of the Star Wars franchise was a dream come true for Warwick, who was twelve years old at the time of filming, and he recently revealed a letter he wrote to creator George Lucas soon after the film wrapped.
The full text of the letter can be read below:
Dear Mr. Lucas,
My name is Warwick. I hope you remember me I helped you make the new ‘Star Wars’ film last year. I hear that the film is being released in this country on June 2nd and that a few of the toy shops in London have some of the new figures.
I hope this is not too rude of me to ask you, but would it be possible for you to send me the very latest figures and walkers – I was hoping very much that there may be an ‘Ewok’ or ‘Jabba the Hut’
I did enjoy myself with you and the members of the film unit and keep remembering what a terrific experience it was.
Hoping to meet you again soon.
It’s a very cute piece of memorabilia that Warwick has chosen to share with the world, but I can’t help but wonder… did he ever receive those toys?! Even if he did, I’m sure they couldn’t compare to the wonderful experience of getting to be a part of two of the world’s most beloved franchises!
