Name that dwarf!

There's a bit of a hoo-ha going on at the moment with the recent release of fairy tale movie Snow White & the Huntsman, it seems they didn't cast any dwarves to play the seven dwarves. Despite a great selection of short-arsed actors in the world today the producers decided to shun the pint-sized performers in favour of miniaturising regular sized actors such as Ray Winstone, Nick Frost and Lovejoy.

This travesty has been compared with blacking-up the faces of white actors to play black characters, a practice which is very much frowned upon. If actors can simply be shrunk using clever special effects what future is there for the many dwarf actors in the business today?

This year also sees the highly anticipated release of Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings prequel, The Hobbit which include six-foot tall comedian Billy Connolly playing a dwarf warrior. This miniaturising has been going on for quite some time, gauge what effect it is having by taking part in our little quiz and seeing how many of these famous dwarf actors you can name — the lower your score is the more it proves that dwarf actors are suffering due to current practices.
