The actor’s family confirmed Finney’s to the Associated Press on Friday morning saying he “passed away peacefully after a short illness with those closest to him by his side.”

Finney was a rare star who managed to avoid the Hollywood limelight for more than five decades after bursting to international fame in 1963 in the title role of “Tom Jones.”

He was a five-time Oscar nominee who began his career at the Royal Shakespeare Company before making his mark in film. He was the recipient of two Bafta Awards from 13 nominations and received a British Academy Fellowship in 2001.

His big film break came as “angry young man” Arthur Seaton in Saturday Night and Sunday Morning.

The film gained him the first of five Oscar nominations. Others followed for “Murder on the Orient Express,” ”The Dresser,” ”Under the Volcano” and “Erin Brockovich.”

In later years he brought authority to action movies, including the James Bond thriller “Skyfall” and two of the Bourne films. He also memorably played Daddy Warbucks in the 1982 film “Annie.”
