Frank Finlay CBE 1926-2016

Frank died peacefully at home on the 30th January 2016 from heart failure following a short illness. His family said; "Goodbye to a wonderful Father, loving Grandfather and a damn fine Actor".

The international press has reported his death widely with many headlines echoing that he was indeed a 'damn fine actor'. The family has said they are overwhelmed by the messages of support they have received and read on social media.

Amongst the many extensive obituaries which praise both his acting and the length and range of his career perhaps The Independent said it most succinctly "Frank Finlay: One of the finest character actors of his generation. He never courted fame, but simply worked hard, with wonderful results."
