His final movie role was James Bond smash hit Skyfall in 2012, in which he played Kincade. Directed by Sam Mendes, he went down a storm with fans. Interestingly, it was briefly considered that original 007 hero Sean Connery could play that part. Finney went on to more than make it his own.
“To me it becomes too… it would take you out of the movie [if Connery did the part]," Mendes told Huffington Post.
