In addition to his acting career, in 1995, Davis co-founded, with fellow dwarf actor and father-in-law Peter Burroughs, the talent agency Willow Management, that specialises in representing actors under five feet (1.52 m) tall. Many of Davis's co-stars and fellow dwarf actors from Star Wars, Willow, Labyrinth and the Harry Potter series are represented by the agency. In 2004, the agency also began representing actors over seven feet (2.13 m) tall who had suffered from being confined to “niche” roles. Over forty members of Willow Management were cast as goblins in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2. In April 2010, Davis published his autobiography, Size Matters Not: The Extraordinary Life and Career of Warwick Davis, with a foreword by George Lucas. In January 2013, he appeared in a Comic Relief episode of The Great British Bake Off, winning that episode's title of “Comic Relief Star Baker”. Davis is a founder of the Reduced Height Theatre Company, which stages theatrical productions cast exclusively with short actors and using reduced height sets. Their first production was See How They Run, touring the UK in 2014. In February 2015, the production was the subject of the BBC's “Warwick Davis' Big Night” as part of the Modern Times documentary series. In June 2016, he was the castaway on the BBC Radio 4 programme Desert Island Discs. The BBC broadcast an episode of Who Do You Think You Are? genealogy programmes on Warwick Davis in February 2017. In the episode Davis learned that in his family tree he had an ancestor that had been married to two women at the same time, another who had died in an asylum from syphilis and another who performed as a minstrel in blackface. Unlike most dwarfs (70.65%) who have a condition called achondroplasia, Davis' dwarfism is caused by an extremely rare genetic condition called spondyloepiphyseal dysplasia congenita (SED). He has said the only real drawback to being small was the associated health problems. Of his own dwarfism, Davis has said, “As you get older, you can suffer from painful hips, and our joints wear a lot quicker than for people of average height.” Davis' wife, Samantha, has achondroplasia, and their two children also have SED. Their daughter, Annabelle Davis, stars in the CBBC show, The Dumping Ground as Sasha Bellman. As a result of having different causes of dwarfism, the couple's first two children, sons Lloyd and George, died shortly after birth, having had a fatal combination of the conditions. Samantha is the daughter of Davis' business partner Peter Burroughs and the sister of actress Hayley Burroughs. Davis met the Burroughs family while filming Willow, where Samantha had a minor role as a Nelwyn villager.
