The English actor, Albert Finney, has sadly passed away at the age of 82! Mr. Finney (1936-2019) was most famous for his roles in Tom Jones, Scrooge, Annie, Big Fish, Skyfall, and my favorite performance of his in one of my favorite films, Murder on the Orient Express!
In terms of animation, he voiced the character of Mr. Everglot in Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride.
He shall be missed!
