British Actor David Warner has passed away at 80

David Warner, an English actor who played in films such as Titanic and TRON, has passed away at age 80.

The actor died of a cancer-related illness on Sunday in London, his family told the BBC. David Warner’s family issued a statement shared with the public broadcaster.

“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.”

His was a prolific career that spanned more than 50 years, from horror classics to Oscar winners; from beloved animated series to a Disney musical.
