Born to Richard Arthur and Muriel, Anthony Hopkins was a slow learner academically and an ungregarious child. Professionally, he started at the RADA and later joined the National Theatre under Sir Laurence Olivier.He won two Emmy Awards, as Bruno Hauptmann in The Lindbergh Kidnapping Case (1976) (TV) and as Adolf Hitler in The Bunker (1981) (TV); and a Best Actor Academy Award as Hannibal Lecter in The Silence of the Lambs (1991).
- Is proud of his improvisational touches as Hannibal Lecter in The Silence of the Lambs (1991) such as: the unnerving effect on Jodie Foster when he mocked her character's West Virginia accent; the distorion of the word "chianti" and the vile slurping sound he makes after he describes eating the "census-taker." Hopkins also notes that Hannibal never blinked his eyes when he spoke.
- Ranked #57 in Empire (UK) magazine's "The Top 100 Movie Stars of All Time" list. [October 1997]
- Often compared with fellow Welshman Richard Burton.
- Awarded Commander of the Order of the British Empire in 1987.

- Into the 1991 restoration of Spartacus (1960), scenes were reintroduced which had been cut from the picture's 1967 reissue. One such segment has Laurence Olivier, in the role of Marcus Crassus, attempting to seduce the slave Antoninus (played by Tony Curtis). But the original soundtrack for this segment had become lost. And so, Olivier having died in 1989, Anthony Hopkins imitated the voice of Olivier (whom Hopkins had understudied at the Old Vic) for the scene's re-created soundtrack. (The surviving Tony Curtis presumably supplied his own voice.)
- Born at 9:15am-UT
- One of his greatest pleasures in past years on his frequent visits to the USA was to get in a car and drive across the country, enjoying its immensity as well as his own anonymity.

- He chose to play Prof. Van Helsing in Dracula (1992) because he was still riding the success of his portrayal of Hannibal Lecter in The Silence of the Lambs (1991) and wanted to pick a role as far removed from Lecter as possible.
- His Oscar-winning performance as Hannibal Lecter in The Silence of the Lambs (1991) was ranked #1 on the American Film Institute's Villains list in its compilation of the 100 Years of The Greatest Screen Heroes and Villains.

- Is related to the poet William Butler Yeats on his mother's side of the family.
- He included some unusual touches for Hannibal Lecter during his preparation for the role, among which were making Lecter's voice similar to the cutting warble of Katharine Hepburn and almost never blinking, a characteristic he picked up from watching tapes of convicted murderer Charles Manson.

- Has three roles in common with Brian Cox. Both of them have played Titus Andronicus. Hopkins appeared on stage as King Lear in 1986, the same year that Manhunter (1986), which starred Cox as Hannibal Lecter, was released.
