PLEASE JOIN US in wishing DAVID WARNER a Very Happy Birthday Today! Warner's #PeterCushing connection is the role of Edward Charlton (segment 1 "The Gate Crasher") in #Amicusfilms 'From Beyond The Grave' in 1974. A great story, a fine performance...particularly enjoyed his play with Cushing in the Temptations Ltd store... but what a sticky end!
WARNER'S breakthrough role on screen was his lead performance in the Karel Reisz film 'Morgan: A Suitable Case for Treatment', for which he was nominated for the BAFTA Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role.
'I know some actors take acting terribly seriously. I take it seriously in that, if someone pays me to do it, I know I have to deliver!There were certain young actors I had trained with at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art who had always got the big parts and I was always the spear-carrier. Suddenly the roles were reversed and I couldn't understand why, and nor could they': David Warner
WARNER HAS ALWAYS BEEN QUITE A DIVERSE actor, who has portrayed both romantic leads and villainous characters across a range of films, including The Ballad of Cable Hogue, #StrawDogs, Cross of Iron, #TheOmen, #Holocaust, The Thirty Nine Steps, Time After Time, #TimeBandits, #Tron, A Christmas Carol, Portrait in Evil and let's not for get Spicer Lovejoy in the 1997 #Titanic, for which he was nominated – Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture.
WARNER HAS ALSO DRAWN quite the following for his performances in '#StarTrek The Final Frontier', then as #Gorkon the chancellor of the Klingon High Council in 'Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country' and as Gul Madred in the 'Star Trek The Next Generation' episodes "Chain of Command Pt. I & Pt. II"
Here's to many more years and superb entertainment, from quite a gentleman who always brings very interesting and entertaining work to the screen... Happy Birthday David Warner!
