Homage to Anthony Hopkins – Hitchcock

Throughout the 70s and 80s, Hopkins would continue to gain success in multiple television movies and series, and starred in several films including A Bridge Too Far (1977) and The Elephant Man (1980). Throughout the 90s, however, Hopkins evolved into one of our greatest stars of the big screen, beginning with his Academy Award winning performance as Dr. Hannibal Lecter in The Silence of the Lambs (1991; a role that he would later reprise twice in Hannibal (2001) and Red Dragon (2002)). A few of his best films of the 90s include Howard’s End (1992), Dracula (1992), Chaplin (1992), The Remains of the Day (1993; for which he received his 2nd Oscar nomination), Legends of the Fall (1994), Nixon (1995; for which he received his 3rd Oscar nomination), and Amistad (1997; for which he received his 4th, and most recent, Oscar nomination). Hopkins was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in 1993 for services to the arts.

Sir Philip Anthony Hopkins was born December 31st, 1937, in Margam, Port Talbot, Wales. At a young age, Hopkins was encouraged to become an actor by fellow countryman Richard Burton, and thus attended the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama in Cardiff, Wales before moving to London to be trained at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. Like many young actors, he got his start in theater and worked for a time as Sir Laurence Olivier’s understudy. In 1968, he got his first big break on the big screen, starring opposite Peter O’Toole, Katharine Hepburn, and Timothy Dalton in The Lion in Winter.
