Over the years Elinor has interviewed thousands of people,…but one interviewee who stands out is Anthony Hopkins. She recalls how she spent time in his company in preparation for the interview which was held before an audience at St David’s Hall, Cardiff.

“He was always polite, and very amiable; I never felt that I truly knew him. I don’t think anybody  can ever really know Anthony Hopkins. There’s something turbulent deep inside him. I remember him telling me once “Do you know, if I hadn’t been an actor I’m sure I would have been a murderer, there’s this rage in me.”
