Billy Barty | Mormon Actors

Born with a form of dwarfism, Billy Barty was a Mormon actor who starred in over 200 films during his lifetime as well as working in many other branches of the entertainment industry including television and theatre productions. Though he often played characters used for comic relief due to his stature, this famous Mormon actor worked tirelessly to raise awareness for his condition and the problems faced by both himself and his peers in day-to-day life.

And finally, in July 1981, Billy’s star was added to the Hollywood Walk of Fame in commemoration of his grand career in show business.
