When did Albert Finney die?

MMDE: Albert Finney did not die in 2019

Current: Albert Finney died in 2019

Albert Finney was the famous English actor best known for his roles in Saturday Night and Sunday Morning , Tom Jones, Two for the Road, Scrooge and many more.

Many people were surpised to hear of his death in 2019, since they were sure he'd died several years earlier.

There are reports of people being certain they read on his Wiki page he died in 2015. One explanation could be his earlier "death" is being confused with that of the real-life character he played in Erin Brockovitch, Edward L Masry, who died shortly after Big Fish.

People are now so switched on to the Mandela Effect that when they hear of a celebrity death this way, they now know instantly if it will be classed as one when they ask themselves if they though he was already dead.

5 Oscars

Finny won 5 oscars in total, the first for Tom Jones.

I don't think that we necessarily lie. I mean, we make our living by pretending that we're someone else. I don't tell tall tales. I always tell the truth.
