Hannibal finds its Lady Murasaki

October 19th, 2014 by Marc Comments

The cast of Hannibal Season 3 continues to grow with the addition of Lady Murasaki. And she’s younger than that might suggest.

Tao Okamoto (Wolverine/Batman V Superman) has been cast in the recurring role in the next season of the unmissable series.

The character is Hannibal’s Japanese aunt in the Thomas Harris books and she has a romantic (of a sort) relationship with the young Hannibal, so we’re guessing she’ll feature in flashbacks setting up just how Hannibal became the man we know and love (?).

More news as we hear it…

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….
