GIllian Anderson becomes big part of Hannibal Season 3

September 12th, 2014 by Marc 3 Comments

We’re still in shock after the finale of Hannibal Season 2 (seriously, if you’re old enough and haven’t already, you NEED to watch this show)  and pacing the floor for season 3 and this is good news to tide us over.

Gillian Anderson (yes, I still have that crush since The X-Files S01E01) is now a series regular as Dr. Bedelia du Maurier and will be a big part of the show’s third season.

Her character was Hannibal’s shrink in the show and drifted in and out of the seasons, but with things changing radically this year, she has now been bumped up the pecking order. And that’s just great news.


IGN report: “Season 3 will open up following a fugitive Lecter and du Maurier in Europe in what creator Bryan Fuller described at Comic-Con as “a pilot for a new series starring Mads Mikkelsen and Gillian Anderson.”

Series producer Bryan Fuller said he “was going to be exploring [du Maurier] quite a bit in the first half of the season. There’s a whole Bedelia/Hannibal arc that I’m very excited about.” 

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
