Anthony Hopkins on Sky HD

Anthony Hopkins muses over moments in movies that stay with us forever, before reciting the “Tears in the Rain” speech from Blade Runner. “I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Attack ships on fire off the shore of Orion. I watched seabeams glitter in the dark near the Tennhauser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time… like… tears… in rain. Time to die.”

See also clips in which Hopkins reflects on Sunset Boulevard, Rocky, and Silence of the Lambs.
