Prolific, inspirational actor and “little guy” Mike Edmonds is joined by Michal Palin, Colin Firth, Terry Gilliam, Danny John Jules, Mark Billingham and a host of other actors, producers and directors in this feature-length version of a much-loved short.
No ordinary film biopic, Under The Radar follows Mike from his mischievous Essex childhood through a 40-year acting career, encompassing scene-stealing roles in Time Bandits, Return of the Jedi, the Harry Potter franchise and a host of other blockbusters, stage plays and iconic TV series.
A natural talent and a consummate professional who’s willing to sacrifice comfort (and occasionally safety) for the sake of a role, Mike has turned disability (achondroplasia/dwarfism), with all its challenges, into ability. He’s also the glue that held a hundred casts together. A joyful cinematic journey.
