The 100 Greatest Movie Characters | Empire | 70. Atticus Finch

"You never really understand a person until you see things from his point of view, until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it." Atticus Finch

Played By: Gregory Peck
Film: To Kill A Mockingbird

Why He's On The List: A strong contender for the most noble character ever, Atticus Finch remains Peck's finest performance and certainly his most beloved. Finch, a lawyer and widowed father of two, has stood as a model for tolerance, justice and integrity since Harper Lee's novel was first published, and Peck harnessed the power of the role with timeless success.

Finest Hour: Facing a lynch mob in defence of Tom Robinson, the black man accused of raping a white woman in America's south.
