Academy Award winner Sir Anthony Hopkins has written a lovely new piano piece and shared it as a way to say “thank you” to his supporters and “NFT collectors.” Margam-born Sir Anthony wrote on Twitter to express his gratitude for the “support and engagement” of individuals who had bought his NFT and to express how much they had continued to “inspire” him.
In collaboration with NFT agency Orange Comet Inc., Sir Anthony previously unveiled a collection of NFT (non-fungible tokens) dubbed “The Eternal Collection” in October. The 1,000 “original cinematic art pieces inspired by various performances from the actor’s long career” tokens, as described by the media, were sold out in less than 10 minutes.
Along with the photos, the gifts were chosen at random and included signed art books with the actor’s paintings and drawings as well as the opportunity to make a Zoom call to Sir Anthony.
The body of work included images with names like “The Jester,” “The Lover,” “The Ruler,” and “The Rebel,” and was described by Orange Comet as “an interpretation of the vast character archetypes Sir Anthony Hopkins has portrayed over his illustrious film career drawing its potent energy from his stimulating body of art.” According to OrangeComet at the time, the immortal collection sold out more quickly than any other body of work in OpenSea‘s history, the largest NFT marketplace.
Despite having a more than 60-year career, Sir Anthony is still going strong as an actor, director, producer, and composer. Sir Anthony has received numerous honors throughout the years, including two Academy Awards, four BAFTA Awards, two Primetime Emmy Awards, and an Olivier Award. In 1993, the late Queen Elizabeth II knighted him for his contributions to drama.
He has been in numerous movies, most notably The Silence of the Lambs and The Remains of the Day, both of which were released in the 1990s. Since the publication of NFT, he has grown his fan following and significantly increased his internet presence.
