#Fact
1 Supports Manchester United.
2 Born on the same day as Glenda Jackson.
3 Although he played Roger Livesey's grandson in The Entertainer (1960), he was only 30 years his junior in real life.
4 He had been considered for many roles in the James Bond franchise before being cast in Skyfall (2012).
5 Has had relationships with actresses Jean Marsh and Diana Quick.
6 His relationship with Anouk Aimée ended when she fell in love with Ryan O'Neal.
7 As of 2014, has appeared in four films that were nominated for the Best Picture Oscar: Tom Jones (1963), The Dresser (1983), Traffic (2000) and Erin Brockovich (2000). Of those, Tom Jones (1963) won in the category.
8 Was in the same class with Peter O'Toole at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA).
9 In 1976, he was nominated for a Laurence Olivier Award for Best Actor of the year in a Revival for "Hamlet" and "Tamburlaine the Great" at the National Theatre.
10 He was awarded the 1991 Joseph Jefferson Award for Actor in a Principal Role in a Play for "Another Time" at the Steppenwolf Theatre Company in Chicago, Illinois.
11 Father of the film technician Simon Finney.
12 Originated the lead roles in the plays "Billy Liar", "Luther" and "A Day in the Death of Joe Egg", all of which were played by other actors when transferred to film.
13 Rather than attend the Oscar ceremony in 1964, he went on vacation sailing in the South Seas. When informed that he had been beaten as Best Actor by Sidney Poitier, he offered Poitier his heartfelt congratulations. Though nominated another four times in the 1970s, 1980s and 21st Century, he has yet to appear in person at an Oscar ceremony.
14 Although he was born working class (and indeed, along with Tom Courtenay, was one of the leading avatars of the wave of working class/provincial actors that revolutionized British theater and film in the 1950s and 1960s, his was a relatively privileged upbringing as his father was a successful bookie.
15 Appears, uncredited, in drag as The Matron in the ladies' bathroom scene in Miller's Crossing (1990).
16 In 1965, he formed Memorial Films in association with Michael Medwin to produce theatrical features, which included Charlie Bubbles (1967), If.... (1968), Gumshoe (1971), Bleak Moments (1971), O Lucky Man! (1973) and Law and Disorder (1974).
17 The third choice for Hercule Poirot in Murder on the Orient Express (1974). Before him were Alec Guinness and Paul Scofield. Ironically, Agatha Christie felt Finney's performance came closest to her idea of Poirot.
18 Was initially asked to reprise his role as Hercule Poirot in Death on the Nile (1978). However, he had found the make-up he had to wear for the first movie Murder on the Orient Express (1974) very uncomfortable in the hot interior of the train, and on realizing that he would have to undergo the same experience, this time in temperatures exceeding 100 degrees Fahrenheit, he declined the role.
19 Originally chosen for the title role in Lawrence of Arabia (1962) after a screen test shot over four days at a cost of £100,000. He later baulked at the film's monumental shooting schedule, and did not want to commit to such a long term contract and opted to play the title role in Tom Jones (1963), which gave him his first Oscar nomination.
20 Played Michael Medwin's uncle in Scrooge (1970) even though he is actually more than twelve years younger than him.
21 Was twice nominated for Broadway's Tony Award as Best Actor (Dramatic): in 1964 for playing the title character of Martin Luther in John Osborne's "Luther," and in 1968 for Peter Nichols' "A Day in the Death of Joe Egg."
22 Was the first choice of Laurence Olivier to take over his post as the head of Britain's National Theatre. Finney had played a season shortly after the National Theatre's inaugural season in 1963-1964. Finney declined the offer.
23 As an aspiring actor in the mid-1950s, he made the rounds with Michael Polley, the father of Sarah Polley. Michael Polley says that Finney compared actors to bricklayers, in terms of craft.
24 Felt the lead role in Tom Jones (1963) wasn't serious enough, and agreed to star only if he got a producing credit; he later traded the credit for profit participation. He later earned an Oscar nomination for this role.
25 He does not have an agent or a manager.
26 A member of the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) in Stratford-Upon-Avon, England, where he performed for three seasons in the early 1980s. In the late 1950s, he appeared at the RSC's earlier incarnation, the Shakespeare Memorial Theatre, where he was mentored by Charles Laughton.
27 An Associate Member of Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA).
28 Graduated from Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA).
29 He was awarded the 1986 London Evening Standard Theatre Award for Best Actor for his performance in "Orphans".
30 He was awarded the Laurence Olivier Theatre Award in 1987 (1986 season) for Best Actor in a New Play for "Orphans".
31 He allegedly declined a CBE (Commander of the Order of the British Empire) in 1980 and Knighthood in 2000 for his services to drama.
32 He was the only actor to call Audrey Hepburn a bitch on screen, which he did in Two for the Road (1967).
33 Became a father for the 1st time at age 22 when his now 1st ex-wife Jane Wenham gave birth to their son Simon Finney on September 16, 1958.

#Quote
1 [1967 comment on director Karel Reisz] I think Karel is very good with actors; he's very interested in the actors creating a character and not just relying on personality, he's good at encouraging actors to explore the characterization, and I think that's the kind of acting I'm interested in.
2 [1987 comment on John Huston] I kinda loved John. He was like a second father to me in many ways, which I know may sound odd considering I was 45 when I first worked with him, but when you had to say goodbye there was always this feeling of loss, that terrible sadness that you'd be deprived of his company. I've seen more films by him than anybody else on the planet.
3 [on Charles Laughton] He was the first kind of legend I actually had contact with professionally, which was very exciting. I admired him in his movies; I'd never seen him on the stage. I thought he was terrific.
4 I just felt I was being used. I wasn't involved ... I felt bored most of the time. - On Tom Jones (1963)
5 "On the Waterfront (1954) came out and there were 150 guys [at RADA] all doing Brando impressions".
6 [on Saturday Night and Sunday Morning (1960)] "I was the first man to be seen sleeping with another man's wife in an English film."
7 After I played a homosexual character in A Man of No Importance (1994), an American journalist asked if I'd have a rainbow flag on my car's bumper. I said I don't 'do' bumper stickers, but if I did, I'd be pleased to use that one. After all, everyone's included in the rainbow, aren't they?
8 I'm not the romantic type ... I'm a bit like the late, great Peter Sellers, only happy in character roles.
9 [speaking in 1961] "My job is acting, and that is why I hate interviews or lectures, explaining myself to an audience."
10 Call me Sir if you like! Maybe people in America think being a Sir is a big deal. But I think we should all be misters together. I think the Sir thing slightly perpetuates one of our diseases in England, which is snobbery. And it also helps keep us 'quaint,' which I'm not a great fan of. You don't get much with the title anymore. That was all carved up by the robber barons in the Middle Ages.
