• Biography

Anthony Hopkins is known as a British actor. He is most famous for his roles in Silence of the Lambs and Westworld.

Background and Age

Philip Anthony Hopkins was born on December 31, 1937, in Margam, Port Talbot, Wales. Hopkins is the child of Muriel Yeats, a relative of the Irish artist William Butler Yeats and Richard Hopkins. His time at Cowbridge Grammar School was generally unremarkable, however, when the prospective actor met Richard Burton, an incredible course would dramatically change. Empowered and propelled by Burton, Hopkins enrolled at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama when he was just 15 years of age.

After graduation in 1957, Anthony Hopkins went through two years in the British Army before moving to London to start preparing at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. In the wake of preparing and working for quite a while, he turned into a sort of protégé of the incredible actor Sir Laurence Olivier.

Marriage, Wife, and Kids

In 2003, Hopkins married his third spouse, collectibles dealer Stella Arroyave, who hails from Colombia. He was recently married to Jennifer Lynton, from 1973 to 2002, and before that had been married to Petronella Barker, from 1967 to 1972. He and Barker had one little girl, Abigail Hopkins, who was born in 1968.

Career and Net Worth

In 1989, Hopkins thought he made it when he was in the production of the musical drama M. Butterfly. Yet, it was in 1991 that Hopkins wound up getting shot to superstardom. His remarkable performance as the notorious psychopath Hannibal Lecter in The Silence of the Lambs alarmed and wowed fans and pundits the same. At the time he played the role, Hopkins had been thinking about abandoning films and resigning to London for a career on the stage. The chance role brought about an Oscar as well as a recognized spot in the prevalent awareness as maybe the scariest on-screen antagonist ever.

The acclaimed actor has kept on working in significant movies, appearing in such movies as Proof (2005), Beowulf (2007) and Thor (2011). He was cast as popular blood and gore flick director Alfred Hitchcock in the 2012 biopic Hitchcock. On the small screen, he's discovered intriguing characters to play, explicitly on HBO's science fiction epic, Westworld, featuring as AI engineer Robert Ford. The first season, which debuted in 2016, wound up one of the most-watched dramas among the network's unique programming and has won different Emmys.

In September 2019, at the 2019 Emmy Awards show, the film, King Lear was nominated for Outstanding Television Movie. Hopkins has a leading role in the TV movie.
