This was a great fun interview.
 
Today on #AXSChat Twitter Chat our guest is Kiran Shah. Known as ‘Little Kiran’, Kenyan-born Kiran Shah is the world’s shortest stunt man currently working. He has performed stunts for numerous blockbusters including The Lord of the Rings trilogy, Titanic, Braveheart, Indiana Jones and Superman I & II. His acting career has been almost as prolific, including roles in The Hobbit, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, and the upcoming Star Wars film.
At the age of 17, Kiran got his first shot at acting when he answered an advertisement in the back of Time Out for Red Budha Theatre. Taking a main part as a mime, he travelled with the company around Italy for three months, before returning to London and starting to take classes in mime. After he finished his schooling, he began working in experimental theatre to develop his skills in mime and movement before moving into the film industry.
Kiran’s stuntsman potential was first recognized by Hollywood swordsmaster Bob Anderson while working on the Jodie Foster and David Niven film Candleshoe. Kiran was the stand-in for a child actor when Anderson suggested that he also act as her stunt double. This launched a career which has seen him work with acclaimed stunt coordinators Vic Armstrong, Paul Weston and Dinny Powell in films, including Aliens, The Golden Compass, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, and James Bond film The World Is Not Enough.
Kiran’s acting career took off around the same time when he was cast in The People that Time Forgot after he was spotted at Pinewood Studios by director John Dark. Since then he has played characters such as evil henchman Blunder in Ridley Scott’s Legend – for which he did his own stunts – and Abu in Raiders of the Lost Ark. He trained in the whip and the heavy axe to take the role of Ginarrbrik, the White Witch’s sleigh driver, in The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.
Although he missed out on the part of R2D2 when Kenny Baker decided to reprise the role, he later played an ewok in Return of the Jedi. He is returning to the Star Wars franchise in the eagerly awaited The Force Awakens as Teedo, a scavenger on the planet Jakku.
His greatest achievement to date has been his work on The Lord of the Rings.

We really need to to stop discounting experience- older workers have a lot to offer.
Older workers offer a wealth of experience and other skills that are still in high demand.

Mad about tech! Love gadgets, mobile and music, I work with Assitive Technology
Introduction
I live and work in West London with my wife and two small white dogs.

I am fascinated by the potential of mobile computing.

I want to apply technology to make the world a better place so for the last decade I have been working with Assistive Technology and Mobiles.
I now work for Atos as the Lead on Accessibility & Assistive Technology. If it is work stuff you are after you can find me on linkedin.

From time to time I blog about stuff that is of interest to me and that I cannot express within the confines of a tweet. I like to debate and engage so take a look.

I am a twitter-holic and am frequently to be found on Twitter where I am @neilmilliken
