Profile Bio Text
Jack Warden (September 18, 1920 – July 19, 2006) was an Emmy Award-winning, Academy Award-nominated American character actor. Warden was born John H. Lebzelter in Newark, New Jersey, the son of Laura M. (née Costello) and John Warden Lebzelter, who was an engineer and technician. His family was Jewish. Raised in Louisville, Kentucky, he was expelled from high school for fighting and eventually fought as a professional boxer under the name Johnny Costello. He had 13 welterweight bouts but earned little money.
Warden had his first credited film role in The Man with My Face in 1951, and in 1952 he began a three-year role in the television series Mr. Peepers. After a role as a sympathetic corporal in From Here to Eternity (1953), Warden`s breakthrough film role was his performance as Juror No. 7, a salesman who wants a quick decision in a murder case, in 12 Angry Men (1957). Warden guest starred on many television series over the years.
Warden married French actress Vanda Dupre in 1958 and had one son, Christopher. Although they separated in the 1970s they never divorced. After retiring from acting in 2000, Warden suffered from declining health in his last years. On July 19, 2006, he died of heart and kidney failure in a New York hospital at the age of 85.
