Austin Powers’ Mini Me actor is coming to Lincoln

Verne Troyer, who starred in the Austin Powers movies as the evil sidekick Mini Me, will make an appearance in a popular Lincoln bar next month.

The 2ft 8inch actor will be meeting fans in Silver Street’s The Original Bierkeller on Thursday, March 22 and tickets to see the Hollywood star are on sale for £5.

Verne Troyer’s small stature is a result of a rare type of dwarfism known as cartilage-hair hypoplasia. The condition means that he is one of the smallest men in the world.

He shot to fame after starring alongside Mike Myers in the 1999 film Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me. He’s since appeared in range of movies and TV shows, including the 2009 series of Celebrity Big Brother.

The 49-year-old now produces and features in weekly content for his own YouTube channel, where he has over half a million subscribers.
