Paul Warren

Personal Profile


Paul Warren is a British actor known for playing characters in prosthetic makeup and creature suits in such films as Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Guardians of the Galaxy, Thor: The Dark World, Clash of the Titans, and World War Z.

In 2010, Paul was chosen by director Joe Johnston to be a visual effect double for skinny Steve Rogers in Captain America: The First Avenger. Working closely with Lola Visual Effects, he helped bring Skinny Steve to life in the pre-production VFX tests and was on set as a visual reference for the recruitment scene. The remainder of body double duties on the film were performed by Leander Deeny and Paul went on to work on X-Men: First Class.

He has since gone on to appear in many films playing aliens and monsters, but most notably in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Paul is credited as a 'creature and droid puppeteer' and he plays an alien called 'Varmik'. This character is of particular interest to Star Wars fans due to his origin and connection to the original trilogy. Varmik is based on 2 classic pieces of Ralph McQuarrie production art from 1975 - the cantina showdown and early Chewbacca designs. The former was a particular favourite of J.J Abrams' that he wanted to bring to life on screen.
