Is he the one who played the journalist in The Omen and Billy Zanes rotten butler in Titanic?
RIP Mr Warner

I saw his Lear at Chichester a few years back, a beautiful performance, a Lear who genuinely was approaching four score years. I was too young to have seen his Hamlet, a performance that was still being talked about years later. But he is in Peter Hall's Dream as Lysander (a role that I've always seen as rather underwhelming) and holds his own in a very strong cast.

I wish he hadn't disappeared from the stage for so long: I'd love to have seen his Richard III or Iago, but it was not to be

David Warner playing Richard III feels so right it seems ridiculous it never happened.

Through checking DW on Wikipedia I now know why [MENTION=23795]Hugo Rune[/MENTION] is so called. Who’d have thunk it?

Brilliant in Cross of Iron. He portrayed 'sardonic' brilliant in almost every film he was in!

That is one of my favourite films. When I’m on my indoor rower I always put it on. An absolute belter of a film, it has to be, how else could you be on the side of a group of German soldiers in WW2?

He was in Straw Dogs as well but his part was uncredited for some odd reason…. I know Sam Peckinpah covered him financially…..’Need to read up on details
