Howards End / The Remains Of The Day /

No introduction needed. He's the actor. Allthough he's only been in two movies with Emma Thompson, he's worth mentioning here. "Howards End" and "The Remains of the Day" are two of Emma Thompsons finest movies, much to do with the great chemistry between her and Anthony Hopkins. Hopkins won an Oscar in 1991 for "The Silence of the Lambs". His other movies include: "Hearts in Atlantis", "Shadowlands" and "Nixon".
