As an actor he earned five Oscar nominations over his 50-plus year career but never won. He followed that up with a memorable turn as Kincade, a father figure to James Bond in the blockbuster Skyfall, which would ultimately be his final screen role.
His big film break came as "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.

The statement went on to say Finney had been a "huge part of the National Theatre acting company from its early days in Chichester and performed many roles over the years, including Hamlet which opened the Lyttelton Theatre in 1976".
Finney has been nominated for a total of five Oscars and has won two BAFTAs - having also won the the BAFTA Fellowship in 2001.
"I've always been very lazy as well as being lucky, and now I'm even lazier", Finney said.
Over the course of his career, Finney appeared in a number of films, including Erin Brockovich, Under the Volcano, The Dresser, Murder on the Orient Express and Tom Jones.
Finney co-starred in Ridley Scott's 1977 directorial debut The Duelists, and worked with the director again three decades later on 2006's A Good Year. 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. He was also known for playing Daddy Warbucks in the 1982 version of Annie.
