Finney died on February 8, 2019, at 82 years old and he leaves behind a stellar acting career, a surprising net worth, and some one-of-a-kind stories (like when he went sailing for a year right after his breakout role). He scored best actor nods for Tom Jones (1963), Murder on the Orient Express (1974), The Dresser (1983), and Under the Volcano (1984). Albert Finney was a versatile actor who always brought life to his characters like no other, and though many of us believe he should have been nominated for an Academy Award many times over, he was sadly never awarded one.
The film helped introduce Finney to a new generation of moviegoers, and the chemistry between the aging lawyer and his young, aggressive assistant earned him yet another Oscar nomination, this time for Best Supporting Actor.
Finney shot to fame as the star of Saturday Night and Sunday Morning, playing a rambunctious factory worker.

They won just 22 games last season without Randolph and Allen, and Conley out most of the season with an injured heel. Bradley averaged 8.2 points, 2.7 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 49 games for the Clippers this season.
He was married to his wife Pene Delmage in 2006.
Paul Greengrass, who directed Finney in 2007 thriller The Bourne Ultimatum, said he would "miss him enormously". "The world has lost a giant".
Born in Salford, England in 1936 to a bookmaker, Finney said he grew up as part of the "lower middle class".
What people said about him: "Very sad to hear about Albert Finney". Funeral arrangements weren't immediately known. "Apart from being effortlessly great he was also a great all round example of how to behave".
He is also survived by a son, Simon, from his first marriage. After this the stardom-averse Finney focused more on stage work for many years, though he did co-star with Audrey Hepburn in the hit romantic comedy Two for the Road.
