Deborah Carrington, who broke into Hollywood by answering an ad for dwarf actors, and later performed stunt work and costume-specific roles in Hollywood blockbusters and campy horror movies, died on March 23 at her parents’ home in Pleasanton. She was 58.
Her sister, Kathy Ellis, said that the cause had not been determined but that Carrington had dealt with health problems over the past year.
Audiences might best remember Carrington, whose stage name was Debbie Lee Carrington, for her violent performance as Thumbelina, the 3-foot, 10-inch pink-clad prostitute in the 1990 sci-fi action film “Total Recall.” The movie told the story of a construction worker in the future who visits a colonized Mars.
