Watch: Before Anthony Hopkins became an actor he was a musician, watch his reaction to his waltz bei

50 years ago Anthony Hopkin's wrote a piece of music titled 'And the waltz goes on'. Hopkins, who has written music for many years, said the piece was written for the Dutch violinist André Rieu.

"I've been a great admirer of André Rieu for several years," explained Sir Anthony. "He's a great musician. My wife and I had the same dream of meeting him one day, so I've sent him some music that I wrote."

Rieu said that he was somewhat surprised when he heard the name of the composer "He'd never heard it. He was too scared."

Hopkins flew to Vienna to watch the world premier of the piece.

The 73-year-old actor said he was "totally knocked out" by the result.
"It's even more than I expected," he said.
