Samantha Davis, founder of dwarfism charity Little People UK and wife of “Harry Potter” star Warwick Davis, has passed away at the age of 53.

“Her passing has left a huge hole in our lives as a family. I miss her hugs.”

The 54-year-old “Star Wars” actor called his late wife “the most open, warm person [he had] ever known,” adding, “She was a unique character, always seeing the sunny side of life, she had a wicked sense of humor and always laughed at my bad jokes.”

The couple’s children, 27-year-old Annabelle and 21-year-old Harrison, also paid tribute to Samantha, writing, “Her love and happiness carried us through our whole lives.”

“Mum is our best friend,” they continued, “and we’re honored to have received a love like hers.”

While Samantha’s cause of death has not been disclosed, Warwick explained that her mobility had become impaired in recent years but noted she was “determined that it would not impact her quality of life and limit what she did and was able to achieve.”

Samantha had achondroplasia, a bone growth disorder that results in dwarfism due to a genetic mutation in the arms and legs.

“Her passing has left a huge hole in our lives as a family. I miss her hugs,” the actor wrote

In 2019, the actress contracted sepsis, a life-threatening medical emergency caused by the immune system’s overwhelming response to an infection, after undergoing decompression surgery on her spine.

“We went home a week later, and suddenly, I couldn’t feel my legs. I thought I was still recovering from the surgery, so I went to bed, but the next day, I felt awful, as though I had been hit by a truck,” she said at the time.

Their final post on Instagram was shared on October 5, 2023. “A long overdue date night with my beautiful wife. She felt a bit overdressed for McDonald’s,” Warwick captioned the photo of the couple smiling for the camera.

Samantha and her husband founded the charity Little People UK in 2012 to help individuals with dwarfism and their families.

A statement on the charity’s website following the sad news reads, “Not only was Sammy a passionate advocate for the community, she was a friend to many, with a listening ear at any time and an endless positive spirit.”
