In 2007 Mickey Carroll received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame
Actor Mickey Carroll, one of the last surviving Munchkins from the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz, has died aged 89.
A statement posted on his website said the star, who would have turned 90 in July, had "passed away peacefully after a period of declining health".
He had suffered from heart problems and received a pacemaker in February.
In the movie Carroll escorted Dorothy Gale (Judy Garland) to the Emerald City and said the famous line: "Follow the yellow brick road."
In 2007 he told news agency The Associated Press that the Munchkins only made only $125 (£82) a week while filming the movie that went to become a classic.
That same year Carroll and six other surviving Munchkins received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The Wizard of Oz was Carroll's only movie.
When it appeared on TV in the 1960s, he found a new career, appearing at charitable and Oz-related events.
"It's not me, it's the movie," he once said. "When they see me, they think of their childhood, and it makes them smile."
