There have been several famous dwarf actors in cinematic history who have established themselves as stars in their field. Working out 'the most famous' might be quite difficult to quantify.
When it comes to famous dwarf actors, the following are some of the biggest names I can think of:

Famous dawrf actors
  • Verne Troyer (who is also a stunt man) stands at two feet and eight inches tall. He is most well known for appearing as 'Mini-Me' in the three Austin Powers films to date,
  • Phil Fondacaro has made appearances in such films as Land of the Dead (2005) and Willow (1988).
  • Warwick Davis is a British born actor who has enjoyed a highly successful career in the sci-fi and fantasy genre. He's best known for his performances in the Star Wars series, but also starred as the title character in Willow. More recently, he's played the part of Professor Flitwick in the Harry Potter series, and is definitely a contender for most famous dwarf actor.
  • Peter Dinklage won critical praise for his leading role in The Station Agent (2004) and Living in Oblivion (1995).
  • Michael J. Anderson is another famous dwarf actor, who appeared in many films by director David Lynch.
  • Tony Cox has co-starred in several successful comedies, including Bad Santa (2003) and Me, Myself and Irene (2000).
Famous female dwarf actresses include Patty Maloney, and Zelda Rubinstein (best known for her performance in the Poltergeist series).
