A look at the life of French actor Hervé Villechaize, co-star of the hit '70s TV series "Fantasy Island", who took his own life in 1993 at the age of 50.

For years, Peter Dinklage
had indicated in interviews that a Hervé Villechaize
biopic was a long-time passion project of him. Like Dinklage, Villechaize had a form of dwarfism, and his short stature made it hard for him to find work without being typecast; something Dinklage was finally able to overcome due to the wide range of the artistic qualities that express his work as a great actor that he is, which also includes his contribution to the huge success of Game of Thrones
(2011). See more
