Warwick Davis takes on the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and challenges Val Kilmer

According to a recent posting of Warwick Davis' YouTube channel on Friday, the "Star Wars" actor has decided to take on the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. He admitted to actually having challenged by six people to take on said challenge and decided that due to his size and stature, that he would use a more proportionate receptacle. Davis mentioned he was challenged by Max Landis, Hayley Burroughs, J.J. Lucia-Wright of Feel the Force, James Burns of Jedi News, Simon Lane of Yogscast, and Stephen Merchant.

However, Davis didn't seem to expect a huge amount of ice water to be dumped on him thereafter and quickly attempted to dry himself off and named off his next victims as he laid down his "icy gauntlet" to "Willow's" Val Kilmer, "Harry Potter's" Tom Felton, and Bear Grylls where Davis mentions that he likes to roll around in ice naked regardless. Davis is known for his roles as the Ewok Wicket in "Star Wars: Return of the Jedi", part of the Goblin Corp in "Labyrinth", "Harry Potter" and the series of Leprechaun horror movies from back in the day.

The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge is to promote awareness of ALS, also known as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis or Lou Gehrig's disease, to bring on donations to the cause and support funding for research in order to help manage this condition. It all started with Bostonian resident Pete Frates, who suffers from this condition and a former Boston College Baseball athlete where he and his family got the ball rolling on making this trend go viral.
