Born in Kenya as a 4′ 4” dwarf, Roy’s family eventually moved to England, where he pursued a career as a stand-up comedian in local cabaret clubs. He made his television debut in 1976, appearing in an episode of the fantasy adventure television series “The New Avengers”. Later that year he made his film debut, playing the Italian assassin in the fifth part of the “Pink Panther” series, entitled “The Pink Panther Strikes Again”. The following year he was cast in a recurring role as Mr. Sin in the “Doctor Who” serial named “The Talons of Weng-Chiang”, followed by a recurring role of ‘Decima’, a genetically engineered life form in the science fiction series “Blake’s 7”, from 1978 to 1980. In the meantime, he landed roles in the films “Licensed to Love and Kill” and “Die Brut des Bosen”. Roy’s involvement in these ’70s television and film projects enabled the young actor to build his reputation in the acting world, providing him with a considerable net worth.

During the ’80s, Roy tackled a variety of film roles, such as in “Flash Gordon”, “Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi”, “Greystoke – The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes”, “Lorca and the Outlaws”, “Return to Oz” and “Going Bananas”. He also voiced the rider of the racing snail – Teeny Weeny – in the epic fantasy film “The Never Ending Story”, always adding to his net worth.

His resume continued to grow in ’90s film projects, landing parts in films such as “Disturbed”, “Howling VI: The Freaks” and “The Resurrected”, and undertaking numerous stunt performances. All added further to his wealth.

The next decade saw Roy landing roles in comedy films such as “Dr. Seuss”, “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” and “The Haunted Mansion”. He took the dual role of an ape named Gorilla Kid and Thade’s niece in the sixth installment of the popular science fiction franchise, “Planet of the Apes”, directed by Tim Burton. Roy collaborated with Burton in his other projects as well, such as in the fantasy drama film “Big Fish”, in which he played the circus clown and attorney Mr. Soggybottom, and in the musical fantasy film “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”, playing 165 Oompa-Loompas. He also provided the voice for the character of General Bonesapart in the animated musical fantasy film “Corpse Bride”, another Burton piece. Roy played Keenser in the 11th, 12th and 13th installment of the popular “Star Trek” franchise, and voiced the character of Mushana the Green Pigeon in the animated film “Zambezia”. His net worth rose steadily.

Aside from films, he has also been involved in television. He made a guest appearance in “The X-Files”, and had a recurring role in the hidden camera reality television series “The Jamie Kennedy Experiment”, as well as in the sports comedy series “Eastbound & Down”. Roy’s performances in both the film and television projects have significantly improved his net worth.

Additionally, he has also appeared in television commercials, such as for Ozocleanse and Pipex broadband.

Speaking about his personal life, Roy is married, apparently childless, however, there are no further details about his off-camera life available to the media.
