Warwick Davis penned a heartfelt tribute for his wife, Samantha Davis, following her death at 53.

In a statement to BBC, the Harry Potter star referred to his late wife, who passed away on March 24, as his "favourite human."


"Her passing has left a huge hole in our lives as a family. I miss her hugs," he mourned.

The Star Wars actor described his wife as his "most trusted confidant and an ardent supporter of everything I did in my career."

"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," he elaborated.

Warwick and the founder of the dwarfism charity Little People UK tied the knot in 1991, three years after crossing paths in 1988 at the film set of Willow.

The power couple shared the two children, Harrison and Annabelle. The siblings also joined their father to remember their late mother.

"Mum is our best friend, and we’re honoured to have received a love like hers," they added in the statement.

Additionally, Sammy was also an actress, appearing alongside her husband in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 in 2010.

In addition, she has also worked in the children’s series Through the Dragon’s Eye in 1989.
