A former member of Boston's famous Castle Square Stock Company, imposing American actor Warren Cook later toured as Senator Stoneman in The Clansman, the Thomas Dixon stage play filmed by D.W. Griffith as The Birth of a Nation (1915). Cook entered films with Edison in 1914 and went on to become one of the silent era's more notable character actors, often cast as military officers, politicians, or doctors (he was Dr. Rank in the 1918 version of Henrik Ibsen's A Doll's House). Cook's screen career ended with the advent of sound and he resided at an actor's home in East Islip, NY, at the time of his death in 1939.
