More recently, the actor starred in the James Bond film Skyfall and the Bourne films.

"Sam Mendes has done a really great job, and I think Daniel Craig, the third time he's played the part, really fits the jacket snugly and has a nice edge to him", the actor told the MEN.

He started his career at the Royal Shakespeare company before he transitioned into film and starred as the "angry young man", Arthur Seaton in "Saturday Night and Sunday Morning". Encouraged by his headmaster at Salford Grammar school, Finney got a place at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts, where he found himself in the same class as Peter O'Toole and Alan Bates.

There was no "Albert Finney"-type character that he returned to again and again". His breakout role came in 1963's Tom Jones, an adventure-comedy period piece that won four Academy Awards, including Best Picture, and became a smash at the box office.

Displaying the versatility of a virtuoso, Finney portrayed Winston Churchill, Pope John Paul II, a southern American lawyer, an Irish gangster and an 18th-century rogue, among dozens of other roles over the years.

Finney made acting a profession at age 19 when he appeared in several TV movies, including She Stoops to Conquer in 1956 and The Claverdon Road Job the very next year.

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

Two states experiencing a measles outbreak, Washington and OR , allow parents to opt out of vaccines simply because they want to. In an effort to stop the spread of the illness, the Health Department and partners have provided more than 16,000 vaccinations.

Five-time Oscar nominee Albert Finney has died after a brief illness.

"He's the reason I am an actor", Finney said in 2012. He remained true to his humble roots when he declined two of England's greatest honors, a CBE (Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire) in 1980 and a knighthood in 2000.

Greengrass said: "Albert was one of our greatest actors, significant not just for his talent but for the way he made British theatre and cinema reflect life as it was truly lived".

Finney also found success on Broadway.

But perhaps his most iconic role was as Erin Brockovich's gruff-with-a-big-heart boss, Ed Masry. He won for outstanding supporting actor for Erin Brockovich, and he joined his Traffic co-stars in winning for outstanding performance by a cast.

He was married to his wife Pene Delmage in 2006.
