Albert Finney has passed away

Another acting legend has left us. Albert Finney has died aged 82 after a short illness.

A statement from a family spokesman said, “Albert Finney, aged 82, passed away peacefully after a short illness with those closest to him by his side. The family request privacy at this sad time.”

Finney received five Oscar nominations, but never won. He had 13 BAFTA nominations and won two. For his work on Broadway, Finney has been nominated for two Tony Awards. He turned down the offer of a CBE in 1980 and a knighthood in 2000.

His first film appearance was a role in Tony Richardson’s The Entertainer (1960), with Laurence Olivier.

He is known for his roles in Saturday Night and Sunday Morning (also 1960), Tom Jones (1963), Two for the Road (1967), Scrooge (1970), Annie (1982), The Dresser (1983), Miller’s Crossing (1990), Erin Brockovich (2000), Big Fish (2003), The Bourne Ultimatum (2007), Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead (2007), The Bourne Legacy (2012), and the James Bond film Skyfall (2012).

He was a legend and he will be missed.
