Manchester native David Warner supported himself as a book salesman while studying at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts. Warner made his stage bow at the Royal Court Theater in 1962, the same year that he first appeared on television. In 1965, Warner became the youngest-ever member of the Royal Shakespeare Company to tackle the role of Hamlet. In films from 1963 (he played Master Blifil in Tom Jones), Warner achieved international fame for his star turn as the certifiably insane protagonist of Morgan! (1966). His appearance as the village idiot in Straw Dogs (1971) went uncredited due to an injury that rendered him uninsurable on the set; but this was the only time that Warner's contribution to a film would ever go unofficially unheralded. Seldom settling for a normal, sedate characterization, Warner has been seen as Jack the Ripper in Time After Time (1981), the Evil Genius in Time Bandits (1983), Dr. Alfred Necessiter (who had some interior decorator!) in The Man With Two Brains (1984), and genially eccentric Professor Jordan Perry (a good guy, for a change) in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 (1992). He has also played two different roles in two consecutive Star Trek films. On television, David Warner has played Heydrich in Holocaust (1978), Pomponius Falco (a performance that won him an Emmy) in Masada (1981), and Bob Cratchit (what-not Scrooge?) in the 1984 adaptation of A Christmas Carol.
Has vertigo. Was doubled in Time Bandits (1981) in the scene where the Evil Genius walks up the steps after caging the bandits, because he could not handle the drop below him.
Daughter: Melissa, born 1982
David Warner's limp in Straw Dogs (1971) was real. He had smashed both his heels in a fall sometime before filming began and it was a long time before he could walk normally again. Warner's name is not in the credits because, for his career's sake, he didn't want people to know about his problem. It was not for insurance reasons as it has been often written.
Has been in 3 movies about the Titanic: S.O.S. Titanic (1979) (TV); Time Bandits (1981) and Titanic (1997).
Has played at least three different species in the Star Trek universe: a human in Star Trek V: The Final Frontier (1989); a Klingon in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country (1991) and a Cardassian in "Star Trek: The Next Generation" (1987).
Is one of only 32 actors or actresses to have starred in both the original Star Trek (up to and including Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country (1991)) and then in one of the spin offs.
Became an Associate Member of RADA.
Played an ape in Planet of the Apes (2001), a character obsessed with gorillas in Morgan: A Suitable Case for Treatment (1966) and did a gorilla impression in The Man with Two Brains (1983).
Has appeared in three different films involving time travel: Time After Time (1979); Time Bandits (1981) and Planet of the Apes (2001).
In Time After Time (1979), he played John Leslie Stevenson (Jack the Ripper). In "The Outer Limits" (1995) episode "Ripper", he played Inspector Langford who was investigating Dr. Jack York (Cary Elwes) who was suspected of being Jack the Ripper.
Chosen by Tony Richardson for his role in Tom Jones (1963) after the director enjoyed his performance in the play "Afore the night" (1962)
Although he played Reinhard Heydrich, one of the key architects of the Holocaust, in both "Holocaust" (1978) (mini) and Hitler's S.S.: Portrait in Evil (1985) (TV), he is Jewish in real life.
By appearing in Batman: The Animated Series ("Batman" (1992)), he became the first actor to play the villain Ra's-Al-Ghul. To date, he has been succeeded only by Ken Watanabe and Liam Neeson.
With the death of Gregory Peck on June 12, 2003, he is the only surviving adult star of The Omen (1976).
