The founder of “Little People UK” and wife of actor Warwick Davis was a cherished member of the Lucasfilm family.

On March 24, 2024 a beloved member of the Lucasfilm community, Samantha Davis, passed away. She is survived by her husband Warwick and children Annabelle and Harrison. Our thoughts are with the Davis family during this difficult time.

“My wife and soul-mate, best friend. Devoted mother, My favourite human. My most trusted confidant and an ardent supporter of everything I did in my career, has passed.

The most open, warm person I have ever known. Her passing has left a huge hole in our lives as a family. I miss her hugs. 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.

She instilled such confidence in me. With her by my side, I was sure I could achieve anything. It was like having a super-power. Without Sammy, there would have been no Tenable Quiz show, no “Willow” series. No “Idiot Abroad Series 3.” (It was her suggestion that Ricky Gervais send me off with Karl) — I think she wanted me out of the house for a few weeks!

Founder of ‘Little People UK’, a charity to help individuals with dwarfism and their families. She was passionate about helping people, without judgment. She had time for everyone and a genuine listening ear.

In recent years, Sammy’s mobility had become impaired but she was determined that it would not impact her quality of life and limit what she did and was able to achieve. In her absence, we hope she continues to inspire through the things she did and that her love, warmth and generosity will be her legacy. She always lived her best life. Although the pain of losing Sammy and being without her is unbearable, I feel so fortunate I was able to be close to her and experience her magic for 35 years.”

“Our Mum is the kindest, most inspirational and loving Mumma we could of wished for.

No matter the time or place she was there to answer our silly questions, tell us what to do, and to listen when we needed.

Mum is our best friend and we’re honoured to have received a love like hers.

Her love and happiness has carried us through our whole lives, and will be what carries us forward now. Everything we do, we do for her.”

— Annabelle & Harrison Davis
