Life's Too Short: Me, Johnny Depp and Ricky Gervais

Guest Guest | 15:23 UK time, Thursday, 10 November 2011

Actor Warwick Davis

Warwick Davis has written for the BBC TV blog about being the main character in brand new sitcom Life's Too Short. It starts tonight, 9.30 PM, on BBC Two.

Of all my career achievements, I am most proud of Life's Too Short.

I say this because I have a much closer connection with the series than any project I have worked on before.

It was an idea that came from a conversation with Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant whom I'd first worked with on Extras.

We talked about approaches I was getting from documentary producers wanting to follow me and my family.

This type of thing was not for me, but maybe it would be fun to manipulate my world as an actor and person, presenting a very different version of myself and my life.

And so, Life's Too Short was conceived - a faux documentary following a man obsessed with fame, a man whose career is on the slide, a man whose wife is divorcing him, a man who just happens to be short.
