Warwick Davis Talks Cyberman Fear

Warwick Davis, an actor who has played small characters with big hearts over the years, has fulfilled a career ambition by appearing in Doctor Who as a character called Porridge.

Warwick Davis plays Porridge in Neil Gaiman's Doctor Who Series 7 episode.

In a recent interview with SFX Davis – who made his screen debut as Wicket the Ewok in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi – spoke of his childhood fear of the Cybermen (he appears in the Neil Gaiman episode) and likened landing the role in the show to ‘hitting the jackpot’:

[The Cybermen] were always scary to me. I was one of those kids who hid behind the sofa, so I know they are scary. But the Cybermen that I saw were awesome and yeah I think it’ll be scary.

I mean, it was an exciting moment to come face-to-face with one of those dudes. Seriously, it was a great thrill. I mean, it was a great thrill to be in Doctor Who. A career ambition. But to be in an episode written by Neil and to have Cybermen in it, was for me the jackpot.

Jackpot? I think he means it.
