Probably Anthony Hopkins' best known role is as Hannibal Lecter in "The Silence of the Lambs" (1991) and the other two films that developed the Lecter character, "Hannibal" (2001) and "Red Dragon" (2002). He has had an extraordinary career in film and theater. I first saw him in the 1968 film, "The Lion in Winter," in which he portrayed King Richard I. But his extraordinary role in David Lynch's "The Elephant Man" (1980) - which screens Sunday afternoon in the KiMo's Sir Anthony Hopkins Film Festival - elevated him, in my eyes, to one of the most talented and versatile actors of his generation. He is a prolific actor. Here is a link to IMDb with information on the many films in which he has appeared as well as the dozens of awards he has received.
