Anthony Hopkins as Dr. Robert Ford

Sir Anthony Hopkins, the actor behind everyone’s favourite serial killer, Hannibal Lector (The Silence of the Lambs, 1991), will be playing the star role as Dr. Robert Ford. According to,Hopkins had this to say about his role:“I have a kind of diffident attitude about things, which has come with age, I guess, over the years. But they are fascinating parts to play, so obviously I can tap into some. What I can say is that I keep it really very simple, learn the text, and it’s just maybe then correcting for an actor to see. But, for me, the identity is just in the text, following common sense and logic, listening to the director, making some suggestions here and there.”
