LONDON (AP) — British actor Albert Finney, the Academy
Award-nominated star of films from "Tom Jones" to
"Skyfall," has died. 

Finney’s family said Friday that 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."

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.
