Albert Finney dead: Celebrated actor dies aged 82

08 Февраля 2019

According to a family statement, provided to The Associated Press, Finney died after "a short illness with those closest to him by his side".

The stage and screen star began his career at the Royal Shakespeare Company before enjoying a wildly successful career in film.

Our thoughts are with Finney's family and friends at this hard time. A real hero of mine.

Veteran British actor Albert Finney, who starred in films including Murder on the Orient Express and Erin Brockovich, has died at the age of 82, a family spokesperson said Friday.

His film break came with two roles in 1960: a supporting part in The Entertainer, and a leading role as the original "angry young man" in Saturday Night and Sunday Morning.

He rose to fame as the star of Saturday Night and Sunday Morning which proved to be extremely popular with moviegoers.

As he aged, Finney transitioned to worldwide blockbuster franchises, making appearances in two of Matt Damon's Jason Bourne movies and playing the lovably gruff Scotsman Kincade in Skyfall, one of his final roles.

His impressive career saw him nominated for a number of awards, including an Oscar for Best Actor, though he didn't win.

Finney made his reputation in the 1960s and went on to be nominated for five Academy Awards. His Emmy was given for his performance as Winston Churchill in the BBC-HBO movie, The Gathering Storm (2002). He also played Daddy Warbucks for John Huston in 1982's Annie, worked with Steven Soderbergh for Traffic and Erin Brockovich, and teamed with Tim Burton for Big Fish and Corpse Bride. In 2001, he was given BAFTA's Academy Fellowship award, which has been compared to a lifetime achievement Oscar.

Albert married three times in his life, with his most recent wife, Pene Delmage, walking down the aisle with him in 2006.
