There was a silence. Then one of the producers said, 'Holy crap, don't change a thing'. Hopkins is a well-known mimic , adept at turning his native Welsh accent into whatever is required by a character.
He duplicated the voice of his late mentor, Laurence Olivier, for additional scenes in Spartacus in its restoration.
His interview on the relaunch edition of the British TV talk show Parkinson featured an impersonation of comedian Tommy Cooper.
Hopkins has said acting "like a submarine" has helped him to deliver credible performances in his thrillers. He said, "It's very difficult for an actor to avoid, you want to show a bit.
But I think the less one shows the better. In a interview, Hopkins stated, "I've been composing music all my life and if I'd been clever enough at school I would like to have gone to music college.
As it was I had to settle for being an actor. In , Hopkins directed a film about his Welsh compatriot, poet Dylan Thomas , titled Dylan Thomas: Return Journey , which was his directing debut for the screen.
In the same year, as part of the restoration process for the Stanley Kubrick film Spartacus , Hopkins was approached to re-record lines from a scene that was being added back to the film; this scene featured Laurence Olivier and Tony Curtis , with Hopkins recommended by Olivier's widow, Joan Plowright to perform her late husband's part thanks to his talent for mimicry.
His first screenplay, an experimental drama called Slipstream , which he also directed and scored, premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in In , Hopkins narrated the BBC natural documentary series, Killing for a Living , which showed predatory behaviour in nature.
He narrated episode 1 through 3 before being replaced by John Shrapnel. Hopkins is a fan of the BBC sitcom Only Fools and Horses , and once remarked in an interview how he would love to appear in the series.
Writer John Sullivan saw the interview, and with Hopkins in mind created the character Danny Driscoll , a local villain.
However, filming of the new series coincided with the filming of The Silence of the Lambs , making Hopkins unavailable.
The role instead went to Roy Marsden. Hopkins had never heard his composition, " And the Waltz Goes On ", before it was premiered by Rieu's orchestra in Vienna ;   Rieu's album was given the same name as Hopkins' piece.
It was a chance to work with the actors I had run away from. To play another actor is fun because you know the ins and outs of their thinking — especially with someone like Sir, who is a diabolically insecure, egotistical man.
I would fight, I would rebel. We got on so well and I suddenly felt at home, as though that lack of belonging was all in my imagination, all in my vanity.
Hopkins has offered his support to various charities and appeals, notably becoming President of the National Trust 's Snowdonia Appeal, raising funds for the preservation of Snowdonia National Park in north Wales.
Hopkins served as the Honorary Patron of The New Heritage Theatre Company in Boise, Idaho from to , participating in fundraising and marketing efforts for the repertory theatre.
It opened in Hopkins is a prominent member of environmental protection group Greenpeace and as of early featured in a television advertisement campaign, voicing concerns about Japan's continuing annual whale hunt.
Hopkins is an admirer of the late Welsh comedian Tommy Cooper. On 23 February , as patron of the Tommy Cooper Society, he unveiled a commemorative statue in the entertainer's home town of Caerphilly.
For the ceremony, he donned Cooper's trademark fez and performed a comic routine. Hopkins resides in Malibu, California.
However, he decided to return to the US following his s success. Retaining his British citizenship, he became a naturalised American citizen on 12 April , with Hopkins stating: "I have dual citizenship; it just so happens I live in America".
Hopkins has been married three times: to Petronella Barker from to ; to Jennifer Lynton from to ; and, since , to Stella Arroyave. On Christmas Eve , he celebrated his 10th wedding anniversary by having a blessing at a private service at St Davids Cathedral in St Davids , Pembrokeshire, in the most westerly point of Wales.
The two are estranged ; when asked if he had any grandchildren, he said, "I don't have any idea. People break up.
Families split and, you know, 'Get on with your life. I don't care one way or the other. Hopkins is a recovering alcoholic; he has stayed sober since he stopped drinking just after Christmas I just found something and a woman talked to me and she said, just trust in God.
And I said, well, why not? I think because I asked for help, which is a form of prayer. An agnostic doubts and atheism denies. I do believe more than ever now that there is a vast area of our own lives that we know nothing about.
As I get older, I can cry at the drop of a hat because the wonderful, terrible passion of life is so short. That, for me, is the biggest feeling of relief — acknowledging that I am really nothing.
