Verne Troyer Life

Verne Jay Troyer (January 1, 1969 – April 21, 2018) was an American actor, comedian, and stunt performer who appeared in Mini-Me in the Austin Powers film series.

He was 2 ft 8 in (81 cm) tall, as a result of cartilage–hair hypoplasia; this made him one of the world's shortest men.

Early life

Verne Jay Troyer was born in Sturgis, Michigan, on January 1, 1969, the son of Susan, a factory worker, and Reuben Troyer, a repairman. Davon and Deborah were his two siblings. He said that his parents "never treated me any differently than my older siblings." "I used to have to carry wood, feed the cows and pigs, and farm animals." Troyer was raised Amish, but his parents converted the faith when he was a child. Troyer spent a lot of time in Centreville, Michigan, visiting Amish relatives. He graduated from Centreville High School in 1987, where a plaque was unveiled in 2003.


Verne Troyer Career


Troyer's film career began when a former president of Little People of America called him, asking for someone to do as a stunt double for John Hughes' film Baby's Day Out (1994). He performed in several films of the 1990s, including Dunston Checks In, Jingle All the Way (1997), and My Giant (1998).

He first met with Jay Roach to discuss the role of Mini-Me in the Austin Powers film, directed by Roach and starring co-creator Mike Myers, before filming for the series's second film began. Myers was captivated by Troyer's appearance, rewriting the script for Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me (1999) to give Mini-Me more screen time and remove the character's death from the film. Troyer reprised his role in Goldmember (2002) and worked with Myers on The Love Guru (2008).

Troyer portrayed Griphook in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (2001), and was the protagonist of Percy in Terry Gill's fantasy film The Imagination of Doctor Parnassus (2009), attracting a large audience as Mini-Me. He has appeared in many reality television series, including The Surreal Life (2005), Welcome to Sweden (2007), and the sixth season of the British Celebrity Big Brother (2009).
