Povinelli has appeared in a string of TV shows and films, with his latest project being a main role in Snow White film adaptation, Mirror Mirror. He also happens to have dwarfism, a condition that means he stands 3ft 9in tall.

It makes him a member of a specialist industry that is currently in a state of flux. While recognition for it increases, so do threats. It's a livelihood which, in terms of screen work, is sporadic at best, and not always appealing.

The roles open to dwarf actors are, historically, of limited scope. Character-led parts have always been thin on the ground; what opportunities there are, tend largely to be confined to the fantastical — The Wizard of Oz, Star Wars, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.

There are exceptions, of course: Michael Dunn was Oscar-nominated as best supporting actor for the romance Ship of Fools, David Rappaport became a credible star on the back of Terry Gilliam's Time Bandits in "not even for a lot of money would I be a puppet or a robot," he once said and, more recently, Peter Dinklage won an Emmy for his portrayal of Tyrion in HBO's Game of Thrones — a role soaked with humanity and depth.

Even so, a limited range of roles is a frustration for any actor who wants to be taken seriously. Yet dwarf actors also face a fight for their traditional roles on the most apt of battlefields: Snow White.

Two separate adaptations are released this year: one of them Mirror Mirror, in which Povinelli plays a character called Half Pint uses a full cast of dwarf actors; while the other, Snow White and the Huntsman, replaces them with well-known names such as Ian McShane and Nick Frost shrunk using CGI.

Such a practice is hardly new, of course: Lord of the Rings famously used camera angles to resize its actors, as will dwarf-heavy prequel, The Hobbit, released later this year.

Just as dwarf actors' work is being threatened in pantomimes by child actors, such FX trickery is eradicating roles traditionally held by dwarves.

It's a novelty that isn't going down well. I don't agree with it, of course. I don't want the market on the fantastical characters — that doesn't interest me.

I want the whole range. I don't begrudge McShane taking on that role but the coin should be flipped as well and we should be allowed to play actual humans.

Because … you know, it's pretty obvious but that's what we are. I'm not a leprechaun. I'm not an elf. I don't live in a forest. I'm a dad, I'm a husband, I'm a sports fan, I'm a theatregoer I'm everything everyone else is.

And those are the things you want to portray. Danny Woodburn, an established TV and film actor best known for his roles in Seinfeld and Watchmen, also plays one of the seven dwarves in Mirror Mirror.

He agrees with Povinelli. You would never see this with any other minority — it isn't acceptable. In today's industry, you would never see someone seriously playing an African American who wasn't an African American.

Yet it is acceptable in the realm of actors portraying people with dwarfism, or disabilities in general. Prince Alcott tries to save Snow White, but the Beast captures her. However, the Beast hesitates in killing her and Snow White sees that it wears a necklace with a moon charm on it similar to the one the Queen wears, which the princess noticed just before she was taken to be eaten by the Beast.

She cuts the chain with her father's dagger and the Beast suddenly becomes engulfed in light. Clementianna begins to age, and the Mirror Queen says this is her punishment for using dark magic.

The Beast turns out to be Snow White's father, who has no memory of the last ten years. Grateful to Alcott for his assistance, the king agrees to let him marry Snow White as Brighton starts a relationship with Margaret.

After Snow White accepts the Magistrate's gift, a crone in a hooded robe appears and offers Snow White an apple as a wedding gift. At first, Snow White accepts the gift.

As she is about to bite it, she realizes that the crone is Clementianna. Snow White pulls out her knife and cuts a piece from the apple and gives it to Clementianna, who reluctantly accepts it.

The Mirror House declares that it was Snow White's story along, and shatters. The Dwarves, meanwhile, all live "happily ever after".

During the credits, the cast, led by Snow White, engage in a Bollywood -style musical number. Roberts was the first to be cast, because very early on Tarsem Singh wanted an Evil Queen with whom audiences could relate.

He stated that in the film, the queen is not evil, but rather insecure. He also suggested that the Queen's true ugliness may be revealed at the very end of the film.

Felicity Jones was offered the part but turned it down. The first trailer was released on November 30, , in partnership with Relativity Media and Trailer Park. Mirror Mirror was the last film which Tarsem's regular costume designer, Eiko Ishioka , worked on before her death.

The film was released in theaters on March 30, The film received generally mixed reviews. The site's general consensus is that "Like most of Tarsem Singh's films, Mirror Mirror is undeniably beautiful — but its treatment of the age-old Snow White fable lacks enough depth or originality to set it apart from the countless other adaptations of the tale.

Robbie Collin from British newspaper The Telegraph gave the film four stars describing it as "an exuberantly charming fairy story that owes as much to the gnarled folk tale illustrations of Arthur Rackham as the stagey, saturated lunacy of that half-loved, half-feared East German fantasy The Singing Ringing Tree.

It's a Grimm piece of work, but far from a grim one: without rehashing the seminal Disney animated version, it radiates gorgeousness and good humour with a near-nuclear intensity.

He concluded the film is "the opposite of Tim Burton 's brash, chaotic, dispiritingly popular Alice in Wonderland : here, the artistry of the cast and crew leaps off the screen, not 3D computer graphics.

Tarsem Singh—who was unaware that it had previously been used in a film—chose the song for the Bollywood -style musical finale of Mirror, Mirror based on his daughter's positive reaction to the song when he played it for her the previous year.

I'm everything everyone else is. And those are the things you want to portray. Danny Woodburn, an established TV and film actor best known for his roles in Seinfeld and Watchmen, also plays one of the seven dwarves in Mirror Mirror.

He agrees with Povinelli. You would never see this with any other minority — it isn't acceptable. In today's industry, you would never see someone seriously playing an African American who wasn't an African American.

Yet it is acceptable in the realm of actors portraying people with dwarfism, or disabilities in general. Woodburn is a member of the Screen Actors Guild for Performers with Disabilities Committee, and is outspoken when it comes to dwarfism issues — especially the sneery sense of schadenfreude and dehumanisation that they're occasionally subjected to.

It's for this reason that Woodburn is surprised by the fuss surrounding Warwick Davis's Life's Too Short — the TV show that has triggered much debate about dwarf actors. No one goes crazy about that.

The reactions to Life's Too Short just go to show the variety of opinions on how dwarves should be seen on screen. Yet between the protection of traditional roles and the hunger for meatier ones, the consensus seems to be that what the dwarf acting industry needs is the chance for louder voices — something that was basically nonexistent in the days where Kenny Baker walked into the role of R2-D2.

Willow Management, a dwarf acting agency based in the UK, looks after almost clients across the world. Their role, according to Peter Burroughs, who runs the agency with Warwick Davis, is to look after the interests of dwarf actors, put them forward for auditions and to "step in if our clients feel like they're being exploited".

Despite a relatively large number of actors on their books although minuscule in the context of the acting industry as a whole , Burroughs says very few actually approach it as a serious, full-time career.

He thinks it might be an issue of confidence, but is certain that's changing. We also try to make the industry aware that these people are capable of doing a good acting job. After all: as long as there's good actors, the industry will survive.

But what needs to change so that dwarf actors have the chance to showcase their talent? Woodburn singles out one of the biggest problems: a lack of understanding from writers.

A writer will say, 'Oh, you're a sad little man'; but the reality is, 'No, I'm not a sad little man, I'm just kinda pissed off because society won't accept me as a man.

Povinelli agrees; he is also optimistic for a future that is led by actors such as Dinklage. And I think that's coinciding with the fact that there's a real pool of super-talented actors who are finally getting a chance to show what they can do — to finally be seen as actors first, and dwarves second.

Snow White secretly attends the ball, planning to ask the prince to help her restore the kingdom. Queen Clementianna notices them dancing and orders her manservant Brighton Nathan Lane to take the princess into the forest and feed her to the Beast Frank Welker that lives there.

Snow White flees the Beast and collapses at the door to the Seven Dwarves ' house. Queen Clementianna levies another tax on the townfolk to pay for the parties she throws for Prince Alcott.

Brighton collects the taxes, but, on the way back to the palace, the dwarves rob him. Snow White sneaks away to return the money.

The townspeople and the Town Magistrate Alex Ivanovici are overjoyed to have their money back and Snow White lets the Dwarves take credit for it, earning them the people's loyalty.

Clementianna informs Alcott that Snow White is dead. When the Prince finds out that the bandits have robbed Brighton, he goes after them, unaware of the awful things the Queen has done. In the forest, Alcott discovers that Snow White is alive and in league with the bandits.

Each believing the other to be in the wrong, Snow White and Alcott duel. Alcott returns to the Palace defeated and informs the Queen that Snow White is alive. Clementianna has the Mirror Queen temporarily turn Brighton into a cockroach, and requests a love potion so she can make the prince fall in love with her.

The potion turns out to be a 'puppy love' potion and the prince becomes devoted to her like a puppy dog. Under this spell, the prince agrees to marry her.

She then uses dark magic to create two giant wooden puppets in the forest and uses them to attack Snow White and the Dwarves. Snow White cuts the strings of the puppets and breaks the spell.

Snow White and the Dwarves crash the royal wedding and capture the Prince before Clementianna and Brighton arrive.

When Queen Clementianna arrives, the Baron and the other Aristocrats had their clothes stolen, because of her inability to handle bandits and for lying about Snow White's death, they demanded that Clementianna be deposed.

Back in the forest, the still-cursed Prince wishes to return to the Queen. Snow White kisses Alcott and the spell is broken.

Snow White encounters Clementianna, who sends the Beast after her. Prince Alcott tries to save Snow White, but the Beast captures her. However, the Beast hesitates in killing her and Snow White sees that it wears a necklace with a moon charm on it similar to the one the Queen wears, which the princess noticed just before she was taken to be eaten by the Beast.
