How many cameos has Warwick Davis had in Star Wars films?

How many cameos or parts has Warwick Davis had in Star Wars films?

Warwick Davis ’s first run at Star Wars was as the Ewok known as Wicket in Return of the Jedi. Apparently he was subbed in at the last minute for a a sick Kenny Baker thus bring him to the fore as a child actor. It was a featured role, you could hardly call it a cameo. 

Davis played Wicket twice more in the spin off films, Caravan of Courage and Battle for Endor.

Davis’s next turn came in The Phantom Menace where he had 4 minor appearances which are true cameos. 

In that film he played Wald, the young green Rodian friend that plays with young Anakin. He had a brief turn as Weazel who was a gambler that was watching the podrace that young Anakin won. Davis also appeared as a street trader on the Tatooine streets and he was used as a double for Yoda in some of Yoda’s walking scenes.

Warwick’s latest role in the Star Wars realm was as 'Woolivan' who could be found lurking having a pint of a bitter English ale at Maz Kanata’s Castle.

In 2016, Davis also turned up in Rogue One!

In all, Warwick has played 7 characters in Star Wars films and appeared 9 times in them as well!

Davis has also confirmed he will have a part in Star Wars VIII - so that will make 10 appearances.

Eagled eyed fans will also note that Warwick’s name begins with W, as do the names of many of his his characters…
