David Warner, a British actor who acted in films ranging from Shakespearean tragedies to sci-fi classics died on Sunday. His family said that he died due to a cancer-related illness at Denville Hall. Denville Hall is a retirement home for entertainers in the city of London. Often, Warner played the role of a villain in movies. He appeared in the 1971 thriller Straw Dogs and the 1976 horror classic The Omen. Warner also appeared in the 1979 adventure movie Time After Time, and more. In 1997, he played the valet Spicer Lovejoy in the blockbuster Titanic.

Warner trained at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London. He became a young star of the Royal Shakespeare Company. Warner played several roles including King Henry VI and King Richard II. In 1965, he played the title role in Hamlet and many considered him one of the finest of his generation. Despite his critical acclaim as a stage actor, David Warner’s stage fright led him to work in film and TV.

In 1966, he was nominated for a British Academy Film Award. Later, Warner won an Emmy for playing the role of Pomponius Falco in the 1981 TV miniseries Masada. Sci-fi fans love him for appearing in Time Bandits, the computer movie Tron, Tim Burton’s remake of Planet of the Apes, and the Star Trek franchise. In 2018, he appeared in none of his final movie roles as a retired naval officer Admiral Boom in Mary Poppins Returns.

David Warner’s family said he would be remembered “as a kind-hearted, generous and compassionate man, partner and father whose legacy of extraordinary work has touched the lives of so many over the years.” They said, “We are heartbroken”. Warner is survived by his partner Lisa Bowerman, his son Luke, daughter-in-law Sarah, “his good friend Jane Spencer Prior, his first wife Harriet Evans, and his many gold dust friends.”
