Warwick Davis has admitted he’s keen to film another series of Life’s Too Short, but says it’s up to writers Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant.

The 3ft 6in actor plays himself in the new mockumentary, which starts on BBC Two on Thursday, November 10, and follows his day-to-day life as a jobbing dwarf actor.

“It’s as if I sat there and thought ‘Right, what would make the perfect comedy series? Let’s have a bit of BBC Two, a bit of HBO, get Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant to write and direct it’,” said Warwick.

“I’d love to bake another cake, but Stephen and Ricky are good at knowing when people have had enough, so we’ll have to wait and see.”

The Harry Potter star worked alongside celebs including Liam Neeson, Sting and Johnny Depp, who took part in the show to make fun of their public personae.

“I’d never met Johnny before and it was just fantastic to hang out with him,” said Warwick, 41, whose two children Annabel, 13, and Harrison, seven, joined their dad on set that day.

“He gave them each a set of beads from Captain Jack’s hair and signed autographs and pictures. He’s a really good guy.”

Warwick also had high praise for the show’s writers and directors.

“It’s a whole different ball game so I was very lucky to have Ricky and Stephen there as mentors and brilliant directors,” he said.

“They know what they want and have a very concise way of working so there’s no time-wasting.”
