British actor David Warner died from a cancer-related illness on Sunday at Denville Hall. He was known for his role in the 1997 film Titanic. He was born on 29 July 1941 in Manchester and later graduated from RADA in 1961.
His family released a statement to the BBC and said, “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.”
He was last seen in Mary Poppins Returns as the retired naval officer Admiral Boom which was released in 2018.
