In January 2011 Anthony Hopkins was named by Sky HD as having been voted as the Best British Male Actor of all time.
Sir Anthony Hopkins is undoubtedly one of the most legendary and versatile British actors of all time and at 73 years of age, he is now in his sixth decade of film making.
Best known the world over for his Oscar-winning performance as Hannibal Lecter in ‘The Silence of The Lambs’ (1991), Anthony Hopkins’ diverse roles all have one thing in common – his unique ability to immerse himself totally into his character role, lending such credibility to his best movie performances, one example being his portrayal of Adolph Hitler in the film ‘The Bunker’ (1981), Hopkins filled his evenings off set, frequenting a German restaurant eating endless plates of Wiener schnitzel, whilst reading his lines and submersing himself in the hysterical ranting of the broken Fuhrer. So convincing was Hopkins playing this ‘madman’, another award-winning performance in one of Anthony Hopkins’ best movies.
Anthony Hopkins has played many different types of characters, from Presidents to Kings, psycotic killers, wealthy businessman, but one of his most loveable characters has to be Burt Munro in ‘The World’s Fastest Indian‘ (2006). Interestingly this is one of the 2 speed record movies the actor starred in, the other being ‘Across The Lake’ (1988).

Many of Hopkins films have been adapted from novels, such as ‘Shadowlands’ (1993), ’84 Charing Cross Road’ (1987) and ‘Howards End’ (1992), to mention a few. It’s often interesting to read the book of the film or vice-versa – I know when I studied ‘Howards End’, the novel by E M Forster for ‘A’ level English literature, (back in 1979) it would have seemed less dull to me had I been able to see it enlivened in film form, especially in lavish Merchant-Ivory style with such acclaimed actors as Anthony Hopkins, Emma Thompson and Vanessa Redgrave – a classy period drama, set in Edwardian England, ripe with socio political comment and tight corsets !!
