Anthony Hopkins in “Elephant Man”

Welsh-born actor Anthony Hopkins has long been one of Johnny Foreigner’s favorite artists. Hopkins’ brilliant performances include his roles as Hannibal Lector in Silence of the Lambs, Mr. Steven in The Remains of the Day, Corky (and “Fats”) in Magic, and Dr. Treves in Elephant Man.

This scene, when Treves first meets John Merrick, is an example of profoundly great acting without speaking a sing word.
