Anthony-Hopkins-Odin

Happy birthday, Anthony Hopkins! The actor is celebrating his 78th birthday today.

Hopkins is best known to the ComicBook.com community for a pair of roles: Odin in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Hannibal Lecter in the character's titular film. Hopefully, he can conjure up enough black magic to appear in his third Thor film, Ragnarok. How could we forget, he also played Zorro in 1998's The Mask of Zorro and voiced Hrothgar in 2007's Beowulf!

When Hopkins was 15-years-old, Richard Burton encouraged him to pursue a career in acting and he did just that. Today, Hopkins has over 125 acting credits to his name according to his IMDb page.

Happy birthday, Anthony Hopkins!
