The Remains of the Day (1993), based on the novel by Kazuo Ishiguro, starred Hopkins as a butler whose loyalty is challenged by his master's Nazi ties and the love of a new housekeeper, played by Thompson. The Remains of the Day was nominated for eight Oscars, including Best Actor and Actress awards for Hopkins and Thompson. HOPKINS, born Philip Anthony Hopkins in Margam, Prot Talbot, West Glamorgan, Wales, England in 1937, burst full-flower onto the American scene in 1974 as an ex-Nazi doctor in QB VII, the first television miniseries. The actor became typed in intense, neurotic roles for the next several years in films such as Audrey Rose (1976), Magic (1978) and Bounty (1982). On TV, Hopkins played roles as varied (yet somehow intertwined) as Adolph Hitler, accused Lindbergh-baby kidnapper Bruno Richard Hauptmann and the Hunchback of Notre Dame. In 1991, Hopkins won an Academy Award for his bloodcurdling portrayal of murderer Hannibal "The Cannibal" Lecter in The Silence of the Lambs.In 1995, Hopkins earned considerable acclaim and an Oscar nomination for his uncanny interpretation (done without elaborate makeup) of President Richard M. Nixon in Nixon. Hopkins garnered another Oscar nomination in 1998, this time for Best Supporting Actor, for his work in the slavery epic Amistad. In 2001, Hopkins returned to the screen to reprise his role as the effete, erudite, eponymous cannibal in Hannibal, the long-anticipated sequel to Silence of the Lambs. He returned for a third time to play the character of Hannibal Lecter in 2002's Red Dragon. One of the first ladies of contemporary British stage and cinema, THOMPSON, born in London, England in 1959, has won equal acclaim for her work as an actress and a screenwriter. She was able to demonstrate her considerable talent to an international audience with Best Actress Oscar-winning mid-1990s work in such films as Howards End (1992) and Sense and Sensibility (1995). She has a daughter by Sense and Sensibility co-star Greg Wise and was formerly married to actor/director Kenneth Branagh, with whom she appeared in such works as Henry V (1989) and Dead Again (1991).
