Albert Finney Dies at 82 After Short Illness
The actor, who had roles in "Annie" and "James Bond," has passed away, his family said Friday.
Albert Finney has died after a short illness, his family said. He was 82.
The Academy Award-nominated British actor "passed away peacefully ... with those closest to him by his side," his family said in a statement Friday.
Finney starred as Tom Jones in the 1963 movie, earning him the first of his four best actor Oscar nominations. He was also nominated for his roles in "Erin Brockovich," "Murder on the Orient Express," ''The Dresser" and ''Under the Volcano," and starred as Daddy Warbucks in the 1982 film "Annie."
He was nominated for five Oscars in total, including one for best supporting actor, but never won.
He also had roles in the 2012 James Bond movie, "Skyfall," and two of the Jason Bourne movies.
Twice he turned down top British honors — a CBE in 1980 and a knighthood in 2000 — accusing the system of perpetuating "snobbery."
On Friday, after news of his death, those who had worked with him and those who admired him shared tributes online.
Finney, who was born in Salford, England, in 1936, was married three times. In 2006, he married Pene Delmage and they lived in London until he passed away.
He is also survived by a son, Simon, from his first marriage.
