Mike Myers recalled his late friend and Austin Powers co-star Verne Troyer on Jimmy Kimmel Live Wednesday night.

While speaking with the late night host, Mike praised Verne’s comedic skills and credited him with taking the role of Mini-Me from a sideline character to a main star in the films.

“As written, Mini-Me is like almost a prop,” Mike explained. “But he brought it up off the page, made it better than written and we ended up giving him more and more stuff to do.”
