BAFTA winner Sir Anthony Hopkins visits St. Davids
CELEBRATING his BAFTA win, Sir Anthony Hopkins has been vaccinated and returned to his native country of Wales where he visited St. Davids.
The Hannibal Lecter actor, 83, from Port Talbot, won the best actor BAFTA for The Father, a film about a man battling dementia.
The actor, who normally resides in Los Angeles, is holidaying in Wales and posted a picture to his Twitter account from St Davids shortly before his BAFTA win.
Choosing not to appear virtually at the ceremony, he did speak to the press shortly after when he talked about remaining in Wales until the Oscars take place later this month.
Hopkins told journalists: “We are taking a long vacation, we’ve been in a lockdown and it’s been a tough year for everyone so we took a holiday and we had our vaccinations.
“So we’re in Wales having a quiet time and are very grateful to everyone so that is where we will be.”
Hopkins went on to say that he is still acting because it ‘keeps me out of trouble’, adding:
“I don’t want to sound heavy about it but it’s the only thing I know how to do.
“I keep it simple. I love it. It’s a great life. And to be able to express things, I try not to take myself too seriously, I hope I don’t.”
