Warwick Davis’ daughter has shared a photo of her, her brother, and her father – the first picture of the family since their wife and mother, Samantha Davis, died.

The couple’s daughter Annabelle Davis posted the Instagram in support of the feathers from above program that supports Saint Barnabas Hospice center.

‘The ‘Feathers from Above’ appeal is an installation of 1,000, handmade feathers that offer supporters a unique way to remember a loved one,’ according to the hospice’s website.

Annabelle wrote: ‘It was an honour to watch the #FeathersFromAbove take flight for @stbarnabashospice.

‘A beautiful way to remember those we’ve lost whilst supporting the incredible work they do.’

Samantha died in April at the age of 53, leaving behind her husband and two children, Annabelle and Harrison.

Warwick announced his wife’s passing in a moving statement in April.

‘Her passing has left a huge hole in our lives as a family. I miss her hugs,’ the 54-year-old said, the BBC reported.

‘She was a unique character, always seeing the sunny side of life she had a wicked sense of humour and always laughed at my bad jokes.

‘With her by my side, I was sure I could achieve anything, it was like having a super-power,’ Warwick continued.

‘Without Sammy, there would have been no Tenable quiz show, no Willow series. No Idiot Abroad Series 3,’ the actor shared.

‘Mum is our best friend and we’re honoured to have received a love like hers,’ Davis’ children, Harrison and Annabelle, added.

Warwick is known for his role as Professor Flitwick in the Harry Potter franchise as well as Star Wars, in which he played several characters, including, Wicket the Ewok.

Samantha appeared as a Nelwyn villager alongside her father, Peter Burroughs, in Star Wars where she met Warwick.

In 1995, Samantha’s father and Warwick formed a talent agency, Willow Management, that specializes in actors who are under five feet or over seven feet tall.

Following Samantha’s passing, her children wrote on Warwick’s official X account: ‘Our Mum, the kindest, most inspirational and loving Mumma we could have wished for, devastatingly passed away on the 24th March.

‘While it’s a very difficult time for us, we’re humbled by everyone who has reached out to offer support & to express how Sammy impacted their lives.’

They continued: ‘Dad wanted us to share the project that we have all started for Mum. Through her work with Little People UK, Sammy was passionate about helping younger members of the dwarfism community, in particular those of school age.’

They also shared a link to a Just Giving page set up to ‘continue the amazing work she did’.
