Albert Finney (1936–2019)

Albert Finney

Although not especially known for his science fiction or fantasy work, Finney did play a cryogenically frozen head (of his character from the earlier fantastical serial Karaoke) in the 1996 British television serial Cold Lazarus.

Cold Lazarus

He was, in any event, an excellent actor.

    He might be best known for his role as Daddy Warbucks in the 1982 musical Annie. RIP

  • So sad. He was just perfect in Wolfen. I feel sorry for anyone who knows that movie only from home video. It has to be seen on the big screen to be appreciated -- I sat through two consecutive screenings and went back to see it three more times on its first run. I think he played the definitive Ebenezer Scrooge in the Leslie Bricusse musical version of Scrooge, and was also my favorite Hercule Poirot in Murder on the Orient Express. What a loss.
