About Warner Oland

Warner Oland, eg. Johan Verner Öhlund, född 3 oktober 1879 i Nyby, Bjurholms socken, död 6 augusti 1938 i Stockholm, svensk-amerikansk skådespelare. Öhlund föddes i den lilla byn Nyby strax utanför Bjurholm 1879. Vid 13 års ålder (15/10/1892) emigrerade han tillsammans med hela sin familj till USA, där Öhlund började intressera sig för teater. Oland filmdebuterade redan 1912, men sitt stora genombrott fick Oland i en serie filmer som den kinesisk-amerikanske detetektiven Charlie Chan 1931, baserad på den amerikanske deckarförfattaren Earl Derr Biggers böcker. Denna roll spelade han totalt i 16 filmer (fyra av dessa filmer existerar inte längre). Under sin karriär fick han ofta spela asiat tack vare sitt utseende. Warner Oland var även med i den första långfilmen med tal, Jazzsångaren. Oland sa bara ett ord - "stop". Genom att han var med och sa det så finns han även med i 2005 års upplaga av Guinness Rekordbok. Oland avled i lunginflammation vid ett besök i Stockholm 1938. Filmografi [redigera]
