David Warner's Quotes

  • [on The Omen (1976)] I never saw it as a horror movie.
  • It's all out of one's hands. One goes and does one's best. That's what Albert Finney says -- one main hit, that's all you can hope for.
  • [on The Omen (1976)] What was so good about that picture was that there was no blood in it, really. It's not a gorefest. Strange things happen, but it's got the mood and the music and everything. So of its type, of its kind, I think it's quite a superior film. But either way, you don't say no if you're asked to work with Gregory Peck. And he was wonderful, by the way.
  • [on Time Bandits (1981)] Time Bandits is one of Terry Gilliam's brilliant visual feasts, of bringing to the screen what you could only dream about. When they talk about "vision" and all that, he's the only person I know of who could put his crazy dreams onto the screen. He's truly a conjurer. Just an extraordinary mind.

Interesting Facts about David Warner

  1. Has vertigo and 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.
  2. 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. He clarified in a 2017 interview that this was unrelated to the fact his name is not in the credits (as has been claimed): his agent wanted him to have above-the-title billing with Dustin Hoffman and Susan George, Hoffman and George's agents refused, and he decided to resolve the quarrel by going uncredited.
  3. Has appeared in three films about the Titanic: S.O.S. Titanic (1979), Time Bandits (1981) and Titanic (1997).
  4. Has played three different species in the Star Trek universe: a human in Star Trek V: The Final Frontier (1989), a Klingon in Star Trek: The Undiscovered Country (1991), and a Cardassian on Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987).
  5. Is one of only 32 actors or actresses to have starred in both the original Star Trek (up to and including Star Trek: The Undiscovered Country (1991)) and then in one of the spin-offs.

  8. Has appeared in three films involving time travel: Time After Time (1979), Time Bandits (1981) and Planet of the Apes (2001).
  9. In Time After Time (1979), he played John Leslie Stevenson (Jack the Ripper). In The Outer Limits (1995) episode "Ripper", he played Inspector Harold Langford, who was investigating Dr. John York (Cary Elwes), who was suspected of being Jack the Ripper.
  10. Chosen by Tony Richardson for his role in Tom Jones (1963) after the director enjoyed his performance in the play "Afore the Night" (1962).
  11. Although he played Reinhard Heydrich, one of the key architects of the Holocaust, in both Holocaust (1978) and Hitler's S.S.: Portrait in Evil (1985), he has part Jewish ancestry in real life. He has said that playing Heydrich first time around "was one of the most painful experiences I've ever had as an actor", and that he reprized the part purely "because I needed the work".
  12. By appearing on Batman: The Animated Series (1992), he became the first actor to play the villain Ra's-Al-Ghul. To date, he has been succeeded by Ken Watanabe, Liam Neeson and Matt Nable.
  13. He took over the role of Gul Madred on Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987) (two-part episode "Chain of Command") on three days' notice. He could not learn his lines in that short time, so he had to use cue cards. He said: "Every line I said, I actually was reading over Patrick Stewart's shoulder or they put it down there for me to do it. After I finished it, I thought it worked, which obviously it did.".
  14. He was originally slated to play Freddy Krueger in A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984). Make-up tests were done, but Warner had to drop out due to scheduling conflicts. Robert Englund was cast instead.

  17. David Warner played the same role twice (King Henry VI) in two different productions of the same name, for two different directors, over two decades apart. First came The Wars of the Roses (1965) for director John Barton, and second came The Wars of the Roses (1989) for director Michael Bogdanov.
