He was a devoted father and husband to his family. He will be remembered as "a kind-hearted, kind and caring guy, partner and father whose legacy of exceptional work has impacted the lives of so many over the years," according to a statement obtained by the Associated Press.


The family expressed their "heartbreak" and added that Warner is survived by his companion Lisa Bowerman, son Luke, daughter-in-law Sarah, "his good friend Jane Spencer Prior, his first wife Harriet Evans and his numerous gold dust buddies."

In 1941, Warner was born in Manchester, England. He alternated between living with his single and married parents. According to Warner, his early years were like "wading through glue and treacle." Warner's mother vanished from his life throughout his teens, while his father frequently changed jobs, requiring Warner to attend eight different schools.

His list of credits was just as varied as the parts he played. He portrayed an unfortunate photographer in the horror movie "The Omen" in 1976, and a German officer in "Cross of Iron" the following year. Warner was well-known among Star Trek fans for portraying three different species in a three-year period, across two franchise films and a TV series. Warner also made an appearance in the American series "Twin Peaks." In the 2018 film "Mary Poppins Returns," he played a retired military commander.

With the Royal Shakespeare Company, Warner made his name playing the title role in "Hamlet" in 1965 when he was just 24 years old. His career spanned six decades, and he excelled in a variety of villainous roles. In the 1982 film "Tron," which introduced the extensive use of computer animation, he played a bad guy both inside and outside of a computer. He was the Evil Genius in the 1981 movie "Time Bandits." He aids in the pursuit of Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio's characters in the 1997 film "Titanic." (Warner also made an appearance in a 1979 television movie on the sinking of the Titanic.)
