  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Sir Anthony Hopkins (born 1937) is a Welsh actor who is best known for playing Hannibal Lecter, for which he won an Oscar, but has had a long and illustrious career most often playing refined characters with a touch of mischief. Generally considered one of the world's best actors. Has played Titus Andronicus, John Quincy Adams, William Bligh Richard Nixon, Pablo Picasso and Hitler. Almost every film he's in is good, and in some cases, it's just because he's in it. He is also known for his deep, smooth voice.

Hopkins is sometimes considered a Classically-Trained Extra, but he's really closer to an inversion. Once touted as the Next Big Shakespearean Actor, he deliberately chose to come to Hollywood to make loud, stupid movies because that's what he likes to do. In his own words, "I have no interest in Shakespeare and all that British nonsense... I just wanted to get famous and all the rest is hogwash". He has also admitted that what drives his choice in roles is nothing but cold, hard cash.

Though one suspects that he also genuinely enjoys the roles he plays, no matter how ridiculous they are. Pay him his money, and he will show up and act. And your movie will be remembered forever for it.

Despite being known for playing one of Cinema's most famous monsters, Hopkins is known as a very sweet and friendly man who likes to be called Tony.

Anthony Hopkins has performed in the following roles:
