Gillian Anderson Becomes A “Hannibal” Regular

Gillian Anderson has been promoted to a series regular for the upcoming third season of NBC’s “Hannibal”.

Anderson will reprise her role of Dr. Bedelia du Maurier, Hannibal Lecter’s former psychiatrist, in the new season. She will have a bigger part to play than in previous years.

The pair’s relationship is expected to be a big focus of the first half of the new season, show runner Bryan Fuller joking the other month that the season premiere is essentially a “pilot for a new series starring Mads Mikkelsen and Gillian Anderson”.
