Warwick Davis’ children share message on dad’s behalf following concern after wife’s death

Warwick Davis’ children have shared a message on his behalf as he sparked concern days after confirming the tragic death of his beloved wife. The Harry Potter star has since paid tribute to his ‘favourite human’, Samantha, who died on March 24, aged 53.

Samantha Davis, who was the founder of the dwarfism charity Little People UK, met Warwick on the set of the film Willow in 1988 before marrying three years later.

“Her passing has left a huge hole in our lives as a family. I miss her hugs,” Mr Davis said in a statement, according to the BBC. “She was a unique character, always seeing the sunny side of life she had a wicked sense of humour and always laughed at my bad jokes,” the statement added.
