Ms Carrington was a diminutive actress due to her dwarfism, and gained fame as a stuntwoman in film and television. Early roles include an Ewok in Return of The Jedi and again in The Ewok Adventure, as well as supporting roles in Howard The Duck, Harry & The Hendersons, and The Bonfire Of The Vanities. Her most memorable on-screen role was that of tiny Thumbelina in Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Total Recall, while her filmography also lists roles in Batman Returns and Men In Black, and performed a number of stunts in James Cameron’s Titanic. Other films in which she performed stunts include Bride of Chucky, Spawn and Van Helsing.

Carrington was also noted for extensive television credits, including guest roles on shows such as Married….With Children, Baywatch, Boston Legal, Dexter and The New Normal, as well as four episodes of The Drew Carey Show.

Ms Carrington’s passing was announced on March 24th. Fernby Films sends our condolences to her family and friends.

We want to hear from you!!! Leave us your thoughts here!!!

Never blessed with a body worthy of a porn star, nor being the heir to a wealthy industrialists fortune, nor suffering the tragedy of having his parents murdered outside a Gotham theater, Rodney is, contrary to popular opinion, neither Ron Jeremy, JD Rockefeller, or Batman. As a serious appreciator of film since 1996, Rodney's love affair with the medium has continued with his online blog, Fernby Films, a facility allowing him to communicate with fellow cineasts in their mutual love of all things movie.
