#10 – ANNA HOPKINS
“I’ve never really played a villain before, so I kind of got to channel everything I’ve ever wanted to do and haven’t been able to do. Yeah, I think when you’re playing something that’s so different from you, you have a lot more room to play. In fact, I find it’s kind of easier to do than just playing a regular gal.”
—- Anna Hopkins (to Hidden Remote — May 2018)
2018 was a big year for Anna Hopkins. She appeared in ten episodes of SHADOWHUNTERS as Lilith, Adam’s first wife. Lilith is complex and fascinating, and the best dressed demon on television. The role got Hopkins a Teen Choice Awards nomination in the category of Choice TV Villain.
In Season Two of the CITY-TV drama BAD BLOOD, Hopkins is Teresa Langana, an entirely different sort of villain whose father is head of the ‘Ndrangheta in Calabria. She is sent, along with her twin brother Christian, to Hamilton. Ontario to make the drug trade there more profitable. Teresa is an utterly ruthless corporate mobster whose only loyalties are to her brother and the bottom line. Hopkins described Teresa to A.R. Wilson of TV-eh as “…one of those characters who is really powerful but doesn’t really need to exert or show that power very often…but when things don’t go her way, I think the extremes she can go to are a little further than most of us.” The first season of BAD BLOOD is on Netflix worldwide. Season Two can be streamed on the CITY-TV website. Continue reading →
