Born in Kenya to a family ancestry tracing back 20-plus generations to the royal Maharajas in India, film and television actor Deep Roy learned to embrace his small stature from a young age.
At 4ft 4in tall, Deep Roy's inspiration to pursue big Hollywood dreams came from finding the creativity in others.
The challenges he has faced in the acting industry have also been great opportunities.
In costume, Deep Roy has played a diverse array characters - from the Oompa Loompas in Tim Burton's adaptation of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005), to Droopy McCool in Star Wars Episdoe VI: Return of the Jedi (1983).
He says: "To work in costume, it makes you work doubly hard because of the expressions that come along with it."
Deep Roy talks to Riz Khan about his approach to developing each new character, as well as his hopes in Hollywood for the future.
