Warner Oland Facts
Buried in Southborough Rural Cemetery, Southborough, Massachusetts. His gravestone, a rough oval, was made from one of the steps of his beloved home in this town.

Oland got a big break when the actress Alla Nazimova spotted him performing Shakespeare and signed him to her 1906 touring company of Ibsen's plays.

He didn't need make-up when he played Charlie Chan; all he would do is curl down his moustache and curl up his eyebrows. In fact, the Chinese often mistook him for one of their own countrymen. He attributed this to the fact that his Russian grandmother was of Mongolian descent.
