Anthony Hopkins

Anthony Hopkins broke out in 1960s roles including The Lion in Winter (1968) and Hamlet (1969), then found success in the 1970s with films like A Bridge Too Far (1977) and Magic (1978). He entered the next decade with The Elephant Man (1980).

But things really took off with Silence of the Lambs (1991) — for which he won a Best Actor Oscar with just 16 minutes of screen time. From there he went on to star in films liike Nixon (1995), Amistad (1997), Hannibal (2001), The Human Stain (2003), Alexander (2004) and Hitchcock (2012). Along the way he’s also dropped into the Thor, Transformers and Mission: Impossible Franchises.

But perhaps his best work of all was for 2020’s The Father, in which he earned his second Best Actor Oscar for his role as an octogenarian losing his faculties. He does almost everything in a role that an actor can do. His long list of awards includes four BAFTA Awards and an Olivier Award, as well as being knighted by Queen Elizabeth II.

Hopkins, 86, was also excellent as an immigrant grandfather in last year’s underseen Armageddon Time. His latest work includes Freud’s Last Session, in which he plays Sigmund Freud.
