Veteran British actor Albert Finney holds up his BAFTA award at the British Academy Film Awards in London February 25, 2001.
A statement from a family spokesman said: 'He passed away peacefully after a short illness with those closest to him by his side.
British actor Albert Finney, who rose to fame on a post-war wave of gritty, working-class dramas and became an Oscar-nominated global star, has died at the age of 82.
His fame spread further when he was cast as the lead in bawdy historical romp "Tom Jones" in 1963, which won four Oscars including Best Picture and brought Finney the first of his four nominations for Best Actor. Others followed for "Murder on the Orient Express", "The Dresser", "Under the Volcano" and "Erin Brockovich".
Our thoughts are with Finney's family and friends at this hard time.
His career took him from British dramas such as "Saturday Night and Sunday Morning", a snapshot of working class life released in 1960, to a string of Hollywood hits.
His final role came in 2012 with Skyfall, in which he played Kincade.
He was also nominated for best supporting actor for his performance in Erin Brockovich (2000). There's also, of course, his unforgettable turn in the Coen Brothers classic Miller's Crossing.
He was best known for his roles in Erin Brokovich, Murder on the Orient Express and Daddy Warbucks in the musical Annie. It began an era of his career where he would really embrace his age, playing Winston Churchill in The Gathering Storm (and earning a BAFTA, Golden Globe and Emmy for it), a dying storyteller in Tim Burton'sBig Fish, and an expert thief in Ocean's 12.
