Warwick Davis reveals adorable letter he once wrote to George Lucas!
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 12 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!
