So the interviewer asked him to tell him about his grandfather, how he was: “He wasn’t beautiful, but he had a certain vanity. He wore a shirt and tie and often looked in the mirror”. The last time Anthony Hopkins saw him was in 1961: “We had a drink together at the Grand Hotel in Port Talbot. I was going to Rada full of enthusiasm, I had won a scholarship and all. I got up to leave and my grandfather said: ‘Why don’t you come to lunch? ‘ I have good fish in the kitchen.’ I told him I had to go. So I did, and he waved at me from the table. It was a sunny day and that was the last I saw of him.” A few months later his grandfather passed away and still today the actor finds himself reflecting on the choice he made that day, confirming that he still carries it inside.
