Ferdinand the Fence (a.k.a. Ferdy) is a market trader in Stardust. He was portrayed by Ricky Gervais.


Ferdy the Fence is a market trader who sometimes works at the Fairy market. He is a tough negotiator. In a deal with Captain Shakespeare, they argue about the price of a lightning bolt. But Captain Shakespeare wins. He's also friends with Ditchwater Sal and has interes for the fallen star, who is Yvaine. Unknown to Ferdy, she is in that very room at the moment.


Lamia finds him in his office and asks him where Yvaine went. Then she asks him what are the chances of finding a Babylon candle, but he annoys her when he tells that it's a small chance and when he starts telling her about another subject. Therefore she enchants his voice so he can utter strange parrot-like sounds. She then leaves. Septimus and his men later encounter him. But Septimus taking the parrot-sounds as mockery stabs him.


Note that he did not exist in the book. He was a new character introduced in the movie.
