He is one of the greatest British actors of his generation. Over four decades Albert Finney has created a gallery of remarkable characters, in landmark films such as Saturday Night and Sunday Morning, Tom Jones, Two for the Road, Charlie Bubbles and Scrooge.
In Hollywood, he won further acclaim for Shoot the Moon, Annie, Miller's Crossing and Soderbergh's Erin Brockovich and Traffic. He has been nominated for 5 Oscars and, at 67, still shows no signs of slowing down.
He now plays the irascible Edward Bloom in the beguiling Big Fish.
