In the previous 30 years, he has starred in numerous blockbuster films, such as Scream 2 as Gus Gold, Planet of the Apes as Senator Sandar, You, Me and Michael Miller, and Mary Poppins Returns as Admiral Bloom.

The actor has also acted in numerous television programs, including Doctor Who, Penny Dreadful, Ripper Street, Sweeney Todd, Batman Beyond, and others.

In 2020, he provided the voice of The Lobe in Teen Titans Go!

In 1941, Warner was born in Manchester. His parents were not married, raising him; he describes his childhood as “troubled” and “messy.” His Russian-Jewish father enrolled him in many residential schools. He revealed that his mother left his life while he was a teenager.

After high school, he attended London’s famed Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts. Warner was first apprehensive about his acting talent and appearance. He never envisioned himself as a starring guy due to his height and build. After joining the Royal Shakespeare Company at age 21, he was cast as the lead in Karel Reisz’s critically acclaimed film Morgan, A Suitable Case for Treatment, and in 1965 he was cast as Hamlet by the RSC. Warner’s depiction of Shakespeare’s prince as an early student radical outraged traditional critics but resonated with younger audiences. Later, he stated, “When I was a child and saw Shakespeare, I never heard the actors because of all the posturing and declaiming.” “I assumed today’s youth felt the same as I did, that they do not want Shakespeare rammed down their throats. I desired to induce the return of their own accord.”
