“We are in such a wonderful age where fans now have a face thanks to social media, and they have rallied around Hannibal with a Fannibal circle of protection, and love, and light,” creator Bryan Fuller told EW Radio while accepting the honor. “So grateful for them supporting the cannibal in every way that they do.”
As Fuller shared at Comic-Con, the season 3 premiere may feel like a pilot for a new show starring Mads Mikkelsen and Gillian Anderson as “a murder couple.” The action will jump ahead roughly eight months, with Fuller earmarking the season’s fourth episode to reveal everything that happened during that time span.
He also noted that unlike Best Actress in a Comedy winner Emmy Rossum (Shameless), who said she’d be placing her EWwy trophy on the back of the toilet in her guest bathroom, his will go over his headboard.
What’s it like on the set of Hannibal?
Katharine: AWFUL. All my co-stars are shit. I totally fangirled over Mads the first time I met him. I became obsessed with a movie called The Green Butchers and Svend Sweat.
I had to binge watch the entire first season over the weekend before I had to start on Monday, had a psychotic episode where I hallucinated an eviscerated body in a reflection of a window in my lobby. I thought, “Maybe I should stop watching Hannibal right now.”
And then I showed up and was like, “Don’t say anything, totally be cool.” The second I was alone with him I was like, “Ahhh Svend Sweat is my favorite—” and the back of my head was like, “Shut the fuck up!” I kept going. You still like me right?
Mads: I love you. Give me a beer. She’s talking about a character I played in Denmark that made me… Believe it or not, years ago I was like one of the sexiest actors in Denmark. And then I played this character who had a hairline back here who sweats constantly, crying, and he’s just pathetic. And I went not down the list, out of the list, but out of the magazine! And she loved that character. I do.
Katharine: My family has a genetic sweating problem so I really related with Svend Sweat. [x]
