Overview

Regarded by many to be among the greatest actors of modern cinema, Anthony Hopkins has amassed a prodigious body of work and created some of the most memorable characters in recent film. Awarded the Best Actor Oscar for his brilliant portrayal of Hannibal Lecter in Silence of the Lambs, Hopkins was also nominated by the Academy for his work in Nixon, Amistad, and The Remains of the Day. In both box-office returns and career longevity, the Welsh actor has outpaced all the British luminaries to whom he has been likened, among them Richard Burton and Sean Connery. Ranging from his earliest days, including his training at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts, to his lauded work on stage and screen, Michael Feeney Callan’s definitive biography does full justice to this versatile and esteemed star.
