Fans rushed to compliment the couple last October. They wrote: “You make such a beautiful couple! » ; ‘Enjoy Warwick!!!’; ‘Looking fabulous’; ‘Awwww. No better place to have a romantic evening than at McDonald’s.

Meanwhile, other fans posted their condolences on the post, which is Warwick’s most recent update on the social media app.

They wrote: “Condolences to you and your family”; ‘Sorry for your loss’.

Warwick paid a moving tribute to his “favorite human” to whom he was married for more than 30 years and with whom he shared three children.

“His passing has left a huge void in our family lives,” the 54-year-old said in a statement to the BBC on Wednesday. “I miss his hugs.”

He described Sammy, as he called him, as his “most trusted confidant and a strong supporter of everything I have done in my career.”

“She was a unique character, always seeing the sunny side of life, she had a bad sense of humor and always laughed at my bad jokes,” he added.

The couple’s children, Harrison and Annabelle, said his “love and happiness carried us through our lives.” “Mom is our best friend and we are honored to have received a love like hers,” they added.

Warwick said he felt like he could accomplish anything with his wife by his side, likening it to feeling like he had a “superpower.”

He said her mobility had been reduced in recent years, but explained how she was determined not to let it get her down.

She came close to death in 2019 when she fell ill with sepsis before a family vacation.

Warwick previously told how he and the couple’s children “kind of said goodbye” at her bedside before she passed away.

The actor and his wife lost their baby son Lloyd just nine days after his birth in 1991, the year they married.

Warwick said in 2022 that he would not wish the “devastating” experience on anyone and added: “You never get over it.”

He and Samantha met when Warwick played the role of wizard Willow Ufgood in the 1988 film named after the character.

Samantha and her father Peter – who is Warwick’s business partner – played minor roles as villagers.

She also played an uncredited role as a goblin in 2011’s Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, in which Davis last played Filius Flitwick – the Hogwarts charms professor.

In 1989, she took part in the BBC educational series Through the Dragon’s Eye.

Warwick and Mr Burroughs, 77, co-founded Willow Management in 1995 with the aim of changing the way people with dwarfism were portrayed on screen.

Mr. Burroughs is also an actor and has appeared both on stage and in television and film productions, including The Legend of King Arthur, Hamlet and as an Ewok in the 1983 Star Wars film Return of the Jedi.

Harrison also appeared as a goblin in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2. Annabelle played Lacey Lloyd in Hollyoaks until January this year.

Speaking about the death of her first son to People in 2022, Davis said: “I think it brings you closer, or something like that, but it’s an experience I wouldn’t wish on anyone, it’s devastating.”

“You learn to live with it, eventually over time you are able to better understand why it happened and accept it a little more, but you never get over it.

“I think the losses have shaped our family dynamic, we love Annabelle and Harrison all the more because they are here with us.”

Lloyd inherited dwarfism from both his parents and died from complications caused by the disease.

The couple lost a second child – who they named George – when Samantha suffered a miscarriage at 20 weeks in 1993.

Warwick added: “We will always remember what happened with George and Lloyd. We will always be grateful to have had them for the short time we had.
