Anthony Hopkins’ agent saved a woman from chocking to death on a flight to LA.

United Talent Agency pro Jeremy Barber, who also manages Don Cheadle, Sigourney Weaver, and Julian Fellowes, made the dramatic rescue on a Delta shuttle from Telluride Film Festival in Colorado.

As he boarded the plane, he helped a woman in front of him put her bag in the overhead locker – but this wouldn’t be the last time he came to her aid.

A source told Page Six: ‘The same woman who was sitting directly in front of him started choking.

‘She was about to die. It was not good. People were freaking out… he really saved her life.’

The agent then jumped up from his seat to perform the Heimlich maneuver.

After six attempts, the food came up and the relieved woman could breathe again. 

The woman then asked Barber: ‘Aren’t you the person who helped me with my bag?’ before he joked: ‘That’s the last thing I’m doing for you on this flight!’
