If you are passionate about crossovers of epic characters and stories, moments like this are little jewels that cinema and series give us. Anthony Hopkins He sent a letter via email to the actor Bryan Cranston telling him that he marathoned “Breaking Bad”, and praises him for his portrayal of the character of Walter White.
While this message is not recent, it was put into effect again as it is always a good occasion to tell that this exchange of talents (like from Hannibal Lecter to White) really happened. In fact, it became known in October 2013, after being published on the official Facebook page of Steven Michael Quezada (agent Steven Gomez) and although the post was removed, the medium The Hollyood Reporter confirmed the authenticity of the text and that it was from the pen and handwriting of the actor and Oscar winner for “The Silence of the Innocents” (1991).
“Dear Mr. Cranston”, begins by addressing Hopkings. “As I wanted to write you this email, I got in touch with Jeremy Barber, since we are both represented by UTA (United Talent Agency). A great agency,” he reveals to guarantee the source through which he obtained his contact.
“I just finished a marathon of ‘Breaking Bad’ from episode one of the first season to the last eight chapters of the fifth,” he tells him and claims to have downloaded it from Amazon. “It was a total of two weeks of addictive vision”, recognize.
The content of the letter is wonderful in itself, so we share it with you so that you can continue reading it in full below:
I had never seen anything like it. Sparkly! His performance as Walter White was the best performance I ever saw in my entire life.. I know there is a lot of smoke and sick garbage in the business, and I have somewhat given up hope on everything.
But this work of hers is spectacular, absolutely stunning. What is extraordinary is the sheer power of each one in the entire production. How many were there? Five or six years of work? How the producers – being one of them – the writers, the directors, the cameramen … each department managed to maintain discipline and control from the beginning to the end, was – that word so worn – formidable.
What began as a black comedy descended into a maze of blood, destruction, and hell. It was like a great Jacobin, Shakespearean or Greek tragedy.
If you ever have a chance, could you please convey my admiration to everyone: Anna Gunn, Dean Norris, Aaron Paul, Betsy Brandt, RJ Mitte, Bob Odenkirk, Jonathan Banks, Steven Michael Quezada? Everyone, everyone gave acting master classes. The list is endless.
Thank you. That kind of artwork is exotic and when, once in a while, it happens, as in this epic work, it restores confidence. You and everyone in the cast are the best actors I have ever seen..
That may sound like smoke. But is not. It is almost midnight in Malibu and I feel compelled to write this email.
Congratulations and my deepest respect. You are truly a great, great actor.
Best regards, Tony Hopkins.
