English actor Anthony Hopkins won his second Oscar on Sunday for his heart-wrenching performance show as a man with dementia at The Father.

Hopkins, 83, has a 16-year-old film, TV, and stage career, but is probably best known for starring Hannibal Lecter in the 1991 thriller The Silence of the Lambs, which won his first Oscar. His win in the entertainment industry on Sunday made him the most prestigious celebrity to receive the Academy Award, a trophy recently awarded to the late Christopher Plummer.

In The Father, Hopkins plays a mature man who has refused any help from his family and is beginning to question what is real and what is imagined. It is adjusted from a 2012 phase play of the same name. Hopkins revealed in a variety of ways that thinking about this part “made me very aware now how precious life is.”

Born in Wales, the gentle Hopkins is the son of a baker whose work has seen him play characters from the late US President Richard Nixon to the artist Pablo Picasso, Pope Benedict, and the director Alfred Hitchcock. However, Hopkins says his first love was music and that he first became an accidental profession. He is a pure pianist and a long-lived artist in California.

She was crowned queen by Queen Elizabeth in 1993, giving him the appropriate title Sir Anthony Hopkins. Hopkins won Sunday thanks to the late Chadwick Boseman, who had been leading the post-mortem, for the first time Oscar in the final act of jazz at Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.
