You can see the entire article right here. Warwick states, “That’s a problem. It stops people communicating, because they’re always worried about what they might say.” He also speaks about his latest project, working on An Idiot Abroad, a travel documentary television show produced by Ricky Gervais, and how he got his lucky break in acting-his grandmother letting him know that the casting directors of Return of the Jedi were looking for short actors.
