Gillian Anderson – Now A Series Regular on HANNIBAL
Gillian Anderson will be returning in 2015 to her guest role of Hannibal’s shrink, Bedelia du Maurier, in the hit NBC show, Hannibal. Only this time, she will no longer be a guest. It was announced today exclusively via TVLine.com that Gillian will no longer have a reappearing guest role, but that she will now become a series regular. This news came with loads of excitement from fans of the series as her character was last seen jetting off to Europe with Hannibal himself. What this means, fans are still speculating, but apparently season 3 will pick up one year after the season 2 finale.
I am actually very excited to see more of Gillian’s character, Bedelia, in season 3. While she was present throughout seasons 1 and 2, I felt we didn’t get to learn too much about her backstory, so I hope they make it a point to learn more of her past in season 3.
About the show:
The dark and haunting series “Hannibal” returns for a second season with more shocking revelations and psychological cat and mouse games. Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) is locked in a mental asylum accused of Hannibal Lecter’s crimes (Mads Mikkelsen). Now that Will sees Hannibal for what he truly is, he faces a fight to prove his own sanity and convince those closest to him he is innocent of murder. Jack Crawford (Laurence Fishburne) is dealing with his own feelings about Will and whether his protégé is in fact a cold-blooded killer. Looking for answers, Jack turns to Hannibal, a man he has come to trust. With Will locked up, Hannibal becomes Jack’s new consultant on cases. Hannibal is torn between self-preservation and his desire to keep Will close to him, despite advice from his psychiatrist, Bedelia Du Maurier (Gillian Anderson), to stay away.
