Anthony Hopkins launches his first NFT collection, which will serve as a reflection of his previous work, including his role as Hannibal Lecter in ‘The Silence of the Lambs’.‘
To release NFT, the Golden Globe-winning actor teamed up with Web3 creative studio Orange Comet, Variety reported. The collection is called the Eternal Collection and will showcase and “conceptualize” Hopkins’ work as an actor like Odin in Marvel’s “Thor” or Hannibal Lecter in “The Silence of the Lambs.”
Speaking to reporters during an online conference, the Oscar- and BAFTA-winning actor called irreplaceable tokens “a blank canvas to create art in a new format,” saying he was initially “nervous” about creating the collection.
But he forced himself to do it anyway. “Try everything. At any age. Don’t be limited by age. You can do it. There’s nothing to gain, nothing to lose. Just do it,” he added.
The Web3 space “offers an incredible opportunity to connect with an audience in a completely different way… I’m probably the oldest guy in the NFT community and on social media, which proves that anything is possible at any age,” Hopkins continued.
NFT will go live in September on one of the largest markets, OpenSeaand will be discarded in three stages.
Earlier this summer, the actor took to Twitter to ask several celebrities — Snoop Dogg, Jimmy Fallon and Reese Witherspoon — for advice on which NFTs he should buy. Fallon responded, saying there are “a bunch of great artists” and adding that the NFT community is a “fun community in general” and that Hopkins should “DM” him to continue this discussion.
TV presenter owns Bored Ape #599, which he bought for approximately $216,000.
Meanwhile, Hopkins earlier Stared in “Zero Contact,” a film released in its entirety as an NFT via movie streaming service VUELE last year.
