Happy 42nd Birthday, “Mini-Me”!

Verne J. Troyer was born January 1, 1969.  A stand-up comedian, actor, stuntman and performer, he is best known for playing Mini-Me in the Austin Powers series. Troyer is also known for his height of 2 ft 8 in (0.81 m), the result of cartilage–hair hypoplasia dwarfism, making him one of the shortest men in the world.

Troyer is also known for playing Griphook the Goblin in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. However, in the two-part film adaptations of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, he was replaced by Warwick Davis, who played Filius Flitwick in the films and provided the voice of Griphook in the first film.
