He knew he wanted to be an actor from his first appearance on stage, in local YMCA productions in his teens. He began his professional career in local and regional productions in 1960, but still supported himself with a day job in an office.
He first appeared on film in 1967, with a small role in a somewhat deranged road trip drama titled The White Bus.
Of course, he will always be known for his screen-stealing and Oscar-winning role as the murderous gourmet Hannibal Lecter in The Silence of the Lambs with Jodie Foster. Hopkins was married to his second wife for thirty years, but they spent very little of that time together -- she lived in London, he lived in Hollywood, and he has said their marriage devolved to a somewhat distant friendship, with little more than occasional chats by phone. He struggled with alcoholism for many years beginning in the mid-1960s, and credits Alcoholics Anonymous for his success in that battle. Hopkins has lived in the United States since the early 1970s, and became a citizen in 2000.

And he remembers well the day a regular customer at the bakery brought her brother -- Richard Burton -- into the shop for a pastry.

He served as a gunner in the Royal Artillery, and after leaving the military he studied at the prestigious Royal Academy of Dramatic Art.
The next year he earned raves as King Richard in the royal drama The Lion in Winter with Katharine Hepburn and Peter O'Toole.
Prior to The Silence of the Lambs he was probably best known as the ventriloquist who battles his dummy in Magic with Ann-Margret, the doctor who cared for John Hurt in The Elephant Man, Captain Bligh in The Bounty with Mel Gibson, or the bookseller who became Anne Bancroft's dear pen pal in 84 Charing Cross Road.
Hopkins obviously had a blast in the role, and lines like "I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice Chianti" quickly became comical catch phrases.
Hopkins' daughter, Abigail Hopkins, is a one-time actress who appeared in two of her father's films, Shadowlands and The Remains of the Day. His ex-wives describe Hopkins as a loner, a man who withdrew inside himself when he was not performing. Hopkins and Son" was a bakery in the South Wales town of Port Talbot, and Anthony Hopkins was the "Son" on the sign, but he had little interest in baked goods. As Burton strolled away and passers-by stopped to greet him, Hopkins decided that he would not only be an actor, but a famous actor. Success came slowly, but Laurence Olivier befriended the young actor and became his mentor, and by the mid 1960s Hopkins was a minor celebrity for his work on the London stage.

He also worked in numerous highbrow television miniseries like The Edwardians, War and Peace, QB VII, and Great Expectations.
After more than twenty years of film work, Hopkins was finally an A-list star, with his choice of roles.
Lewis in love with Debra Winger in Shadowlands, the heartbreakingly repressed British butler in Remains of the Day with Emma Thompson, an elderly swashbuckler in Mask of Zorro with Antonio Banderas, Tom Cruise's boss in Mission: Impossible II, and a speed-racing New Zealander in The World's Fastest Indian with Diane Ladd.
