Bryan Cranston's "Breaking Bad" performance has won the admiration of Academy Award-winning actor Anthony Hopkins.

After spending two weeks watching every episode of the Emmy Award-winning show, Hopkins sent Cranston a letter gushing with praise, according to Gawker, who confirmed it did indeed come from the legendary actor.

“Your performance as Walter White was the best acting I have seen – ever,” Hopkins said in the letter.

Not bad from someone who captured an Academy Award for Best Actor for his 1990 portrayal of Hannibal Lecter in "The Silence of the Lambs" and who has been nominated for several other Oscars.

“But this work of yours is spectacular – absolutely stunning,” Hopkins wrote to Cranston. “What is extraordinary is the sheer power of everyone in the entire production. What was it? Five or six years in the making? How the producers (yourself being one of them), the writers, directors, cinematographers … every department – casting etc. managed to keep the discipline and control from beginning to end is (that over used word) awesome.”

The fan letter first was posted on Steven Michael Quezada’s Facebook page, but the post was deleted after it went viral. Quezada played DEA agent Steve Gomez on the show.

"Breaking Bad" wrapped up its six-season run on Sept. 29.

“Thank you,” wrote Hopkins. “That kind of work/artistry is rare, and when, once in a while, it occurs, as in this epic work, it restores confidence. You and all the cast are the best actors I’ve ever seen.”

Hopkins asked that Cranston pass the letter on to the rest of the crew.
