Dogh DenIb Qatlh! or pIn'a' yoq? The Man, The Myth, The Klingon[edit]

Get out! This guy was a klingon?

You know "Klingon," but you didn't know this?


- However his villain roles, Warner is a nice guy and a great actor.--200.106.72.142 02:10, 15 November 2007 (UTC)

Early Career Decision[edit]

Would it be appropriate to mention the basis of David Warner's early career decision to be an actor? It seems that he had a chance conversation on a train with the actor Charles Kay (RSC Associate Artiste, QV) who suggested that he try for a place at RADA, for which he was accepted.Miletus (talk) 09:54, 19 November 2008 (UTC)

That picture[edit]

That photo of him is awful. He's old, yes, but actually doesn't look nearly that bad. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.31.169.66 (talk) 12:21, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

I have a black and white photograph of David Warner in full costume as Shakespeare's King Henry VI, taken by me in 1964 at the RSC. He is sitting in the Greenroom (canteen) having a cup of tea and a cigarette. The costume and makeup represent Henry VI having spent many years as a mental patient and he does not look good. I'm a bit hesitant about uploading it, because of this, what do you other wikipedians think?Miletus (talk) 10:11, 25 February 2010 (UTC)
I checked the Wikipedia policy on this and I will certainly need a model-release to use the picture. So I will shelve the idea for now Miletus (talk) 13:37, 25 February 2010 (UTC)

Another tv show/film that he's in[edit]

He was also in the BBC's "Sweeney Todd" (2006) in which he played police chief Fielding. Here's the link to IMDB. Quillaja (talk) 05:22, 4 September 2010 (UTC)

He also appeared in Providence[edit]

This article doesn't mention what was possibly his most important appearance in a serious film: Providence, by Alain Resnais, Dirk Bogarde, David Warner, Ellen Burstyn, Elaine Stritch, and John Gielgud. 92.154.4.250 (talk) 21:15, 6 September 2010 (UTC)Les Brown

  • Comment. The cricketer normally has >5000 views per month during the Australian cricket season. Jenks24 (talk) 08:07, 26 July 2011 (UTC)
  • Oppose No clear primary topic, leaving it as it currently is makes it easier to fix incorrect incoming links. Lugnuts (talk) 07:57, 2 August 2011 (UTC)
  • Oppose. Traffic stats is one way. Search engines however are another and searching "david warner" on images gets cricket, cricket, cricket--same with news results. Rennell435 (talk) 01:08, 7 August 2011 (UTC)

Neglected To Mention......Or, Did You Just Not Know?[edit]

Actor David Warner has, as we all know (or at least most of us anyways), done numerous voice work in animated television shows. What has not been mentioned is that he has also appeared in a few episodes of Disney's Gargoyles as the character known as "The Archmage" who primarily appeared in the 3 part story arc "Avalon" as the primary antagonist. Here's the proof of that information:

He's also done a few episodes of Spider-Man: The Animated Series as a character known as Dr. Herbert Landon. If you need further proof of that, as well as other shows he has done, then I have provided the links to both his TV.com page as well as his IMDB.com TV filmography page below.

As I have stated on previous wiki-talk pages in the past, I would make these additions myself, but I severely lack the skills in editing pages on Wikipedia when it comes to including links and signatures. I've tried many times to improve or perfect these skills, but I can never get them right. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Aidensdaddy2k9 (talkcontribs) 19:02, 13 August 2012 (UTC)

Since it seems that not many people pay attention to this page, I went ahead and added the information myself, complete with the proper links to the other articles. I am finally getting the hang of this. Aidensdaddy2k9 (talk) 02:15, 27 October 2012 (UTC)
