[Movies] Warwick Davis Says He'd Love to Play a Villain in Star Wars: Episode VII Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 03.11.2013
Former Ewok wants to play a Sith...
Warwick Davis says he would love to return to the Star Wars universe, but this time more on the Dark Side. Davis, who played Wicket the Ewok in Return of the Jedispoke with IGN and said he would like to play a villain in the film.
When asked if he wanted to be in the film, he said, "I'm looking for it, definitely." He then joked, "And if you can help people know that I'm looking for it, it's also appreciated. It would be great. I'm an actor, basically. I love to work."
Davis added, "I love to perform so to be able to go back into something like Star Wars… what a lovely thing that would be to say, that I've been in all three trilogies. I'm not dying to get back inside an Ewok suit. I'm happy to play a villain perhaps, [or] a Jedi. A villain with a light saber is the ultimate goal, if that's not asking too much. I never got a light saber before and I think just to have one of them, to be able to wave one of them around a little bit, would be huge. I'm dropping loads of hints at the moment, so we'll see what happens."
