Family outing for Warwick

Blackpool Grand Theatre welcomed star of stage and screen Warwick Davis to the opening night of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

Warwick saw his son Harrison, who plays Soppy, one of the seven dwarfs. He shared his father’s star quality at a young age, appearing as a Gringotts Goblin in Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part 2 when he was just six.

Making it a family affair, Harrison is joined by his aunt Hayley Burroughs, who plays Kip in the Blackpool panto. Her screen credits include appearing alongside Cate Blanchett in Elizabeth and also The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.

Warwick is an actor, comedian, filmmaker and television presenter who played the titular character in Willow (1988) and the Leprechaun film series (1993–2003), several characters in Star Wars (1983–2019), and Professor Filius Flitwick and Griphook in the Harry Potter film series (2001–2011). He has also presented game shows Celebrity Squares and Tenable.

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs runs until the January 2.
