Felix Silla as Twiki in the TV series
Buck Rogers in the 25th Century.
His multiple talents — as a bareback rider, trapeze artist and tumbler — brought him to Hollywood where he became a stuntman, starting with the Gig Young-Shirley Jones vehicle, A Ticklish Affair (1963).
His best-known roles are the maniacal, miniature “Hitler” who menaces George Segal in The Black Bird(1975) and “Cousin Itt” on the long-running TV series, The Addams Family (1964). He had doubled–often for children–in such hits as The Towering Inferno (1974), The Hindenburg (1975) and Battlestar Galactica (1978). Between movies, he frequently appears in Las Vegas and Reno night clubs with his own musical combo, “The Original Harmonica Band”. Silla and wife Sue Silla — a “little person”, like himself — have been married since 1965 and have two children, Bonnie and Michael.
