David Warner enjoyed a decades-long career as one of the most recognizable actors in the film industry. His work on such classics as ‘Titanic’ and ‘The Omen’ made a major contribution to pop culture around the world. Sadly, David has passed away at the age of 80.
His family confirmed David Warner’s passing in a statement to the BBC. They noted that he has been ill for a year and a half. His death was caused by a condition related to cancer.
“Over the past 18 months he approached his diagnosis with a characteristic grace and dignity.
He will be missed hugely by us, his family and friends, and 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. We are heartbroken.”
David Warner was famous for his villainous roles. He also famously played Bob Cratchit in the 1984 George C. Scott adaptation of ‘A Christmas Carol.’ He noted at the time it was nice to not play a bad guy for once.
David Warner will be dearly missed by movie fans and those who enjoyed his work in the Star Trek series and several Dr. Who audio plays. He will be remembered as a dignified professional who had a career that most can only dream of. Everyone at Thirsty sends our best wishes to his loved ones, family, and fans in this difficult time.
