Actor Albert Finney has died at the age of 82. 

The actor's death was confirmed by his family earlier today (February 8th). 

They said in a statement: "Albert Finney, aged 82, passed away peacefully after a short illness with those closest to him by his side. The family request privacy at this sad time."

Finney enjoyed a decorated career that spanned more than five decades. He was nominated for an Oscar five times and 13 times for BAFTA, winning twice. 

Beginning his career with the Royal Shakespeare Company, Finney made his big screen breakthrough as Arthur Seaton in Saturday Night and Sunday Morning, a hugely acclaimed adaptation of the 1958 novel of the same name by Alan Sillitoe. 

He would go on to star in beloved movies like Erin Brockovich, The Dresser, Miller's Crossing, Annie and The Bourne Ultimatum. 

Most recently, he delighted fans with his appearance in Skyfall as Kincade, the gamekeeper of the Skyfall estate where James Bond spent his early years.
