Anthony Hopkins, who plays Odin, the All-Father and ruler of Asgard in the MCU, revealed that his role as Odin was “pointless acting.” Hopkins revealed, “They put me in armor and shoved a beard on me. Sit on the throne and shout a bit. If you’re sitting in front of a green screen, it’s pointless acting.”
Speaking to The New Yorker, Hopkins said, “Success is the best drug.” This year, Angela Bassett became the first actor to be nominated for an Oscar for a Marvel role in “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.” “Well, it’s so modern,” she told me in February. “We try to stay current, and they’ve got a winning formula.” Entire generations now know Anthony Hopkins not as Hannibal Lecter but as Thor’s dad, King Odin of Asgard. “They put me in armor; they shoved a beard on me,” he told me. “Sit on the throne and shout a bit. If you’re sitting in front of a green screen, it’s pointless acting.”
