I met David Warner in 1981 when I was cast alongside him in TRON. I was thrilled to work with him because I was a fan. He made me laugh each time we saw one another. I’ll always remember his incredibly dry wit. He’ll be missed at all TRON-related events, and in life. -BB

Very sad to hear the news of David Warner’s passing. I worked with him on an anthology based on an H.P. Lovecraft story with Jeffrey Combs. He was so purely an actor’s actor, so real, so focused and a delightful person. Rip to one of the best character actors of all time.
