Sir Philip Anthony Hopkins is a Welsh film, stage and television actor. Considered to be one of film’s greatest living actors, he is best known for his acting of cannibalistic serial killer Hannibal Lecter in the 1991 ‘s The Silence of the Lambs, for which he won the Academy Award for Best Actor in 1992.

He received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2003 and was made a Fellow of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts in 2008.
His schooldays were unproductive. He was fond of art, such as painting and drawing or playing the piano, than attend to his studies. In 1949, to instill discipline, his parents insisted he attend Jones’ West Monmouth Boys’ School in Pontypool, Wales. He remained there for five terms and was then educated at Cow – bridge Grammar School, Cowbridge, Wales.
Hopkins was influenced and encouraged to become an actor by compatriot Richard Burton, whom he met briefly at the age of 15. To that end, he enrolled at the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama in Cardiff, Wales from which he graduated in 1957. Then he joined the Army for National Service, and in two years he moved to London.
In 1965, after several years in repertory, he was spotted by Sir Laurence Olivier, who invited him to join the Royal National Theatre.
He made his small-screen debut in a 1967 BBC broadcast. He has since gone on to enjoy a long career, winning many awards for his performances. Hopkins was made a Commander of the British Empire (CBE) in 1987, and a Knight Bachelor in 1993. In 1996, Hopkins was awarded an honorary fellowship from the University of Wales, Lampeter.
