One of the shortest actors with a height of 2 feet 8 inches, Verne Troyer dies on 21st April 2018, Saturday. He was renowned for his role as mini-me(villain Dr. Evil) in the American Action movie, Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery which was released in the year 1997.
He played the character of Griphook the goblin in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. In 1994, he starred in a very loved movie, Baby’s Day Out.
It is with great sadness and incredibly heavy hearts to write that Verne passed away today. Verne was an extremely caring individual. He wanted to make everyone smile, be happy, and laugh. Anybody in need, he would help to any extent possible. Verne hoped he made a positive change with the platform he had and worked towards spreading that message everyday. He inspired people around the world with his drive, determination, and attitude. On film & television sets, commercial shoots, at comic-con’s & personal appearances, to his own YouTube videos, he was there to show everyone what he was capable of doing. Even though his stature was small and his parents often wondered if he’d be able to reach up and open doors on his own in his life, he went on to open more doors for himself and others than anyone could have imagined. He also touched more peoples hearts than he will ever know. Verne was also a fighter when it came to his own battles. Over the years he’s struggled and won, struggled and won, struggled and fought some more, but unfortunately this time was too much. During this recent time of adversity he was baptized while surrounded by his family. The family appreciates that they have this time to grieve privately. Depression and Suicide are very serious issues. You never know what kind of battle someone is going through inside. Be kind to one another. And always know, it’s never too late to reach out to someone for help. In lieu of flowers, please feel free to make a donation in Verne’s name to either of his two favorite charities; The Starkey Hearing Foundation and Best Buddies. Photo by @paulmobleystudio

He has a sister, Deborah Troyer, and a brother, Davon Troyer.
His family members were normal-sized except for him. They were Amish but in an interview, he revealed that his parents left the religion when he was a child.
His size never bothered him until he started going to high school,
“I didn’t really think about my size until I got older, a few years before high school. It had never really fazed me that much.”
His family members are so optimistic and supportive toward Verne and never made him feel that he was short of height.
In an interview Verne once his parents always taught him,
“to be optimistic and independent. They made me feel that I could do anything I set my mind to, which has really helped me. They didn’t make allowances for me because of my height. I had to do everything my brother and sister had to do.”
