A statement from the late actor’s site read:

“We are very saddened to announce that Frank died today January 30 2016 at home surrounded by his family. He was a fine actor and will be very much missed by his friends and family.”

Tissues, anyone?! It’s said that The Three Musketeers star died due to heart failure after a short illness while at his home in Weybridge, Surrey.

With over 100 credits to his name, Finlay was probably best known for starring opposite Laurence Olivier in Othello. This loss is not only felt in the industry, but of course by the family he’s left behind.

In fact, Frank’s grandson Josh Coombes took to Twitter to pay tribute to the late artist. He posted:

We couldn’t have said it better ourselves. Our thoughts are with all of Frank’s loved ones during this trying time.
