(CNN) – Tom Wilkinson, an actor who was twice nominated for an Oscar for films such as Shakespeare in Love, The Full Monty and Michael Clayton, died this Saturday at the age of 75.

The news was confirmed by Wilkinson's family in a statement shared with CNN by Wilkinson's publicist Nancy Seltzer.

“It is with great sadness that the family of Tom Wilkinson announce that he died suddenly at his home on December 30th. His wife and family were with him,” the statement said. “The family requests privacy at this time.”

CNN has reached out to Wilkinson's representatives for comment.

The English-born actor made around 130 film appearances and was nominated for two Oscars. The first came in 2002 for his leading role in “In the Bedroom” alongside Sissy Spacek. Wilkinson's second Oscar nomination came for his supporting role in the 2007 film “Michael Clayton.”
