-I could answer that for a long time. The fact that i think he's very engaged in every person he encounters.
-Judging from the beginning fight scene, devastating isn't the word for it.
Do you watch any American TV at all? if so, what shows?
- If I do get the time, The Walking Dead. Rooting for the zombies, of course.
What has been the hardest thing to film so far?
-We had 5 minutes outside in -35 degrees cold. It was supposed to be 5 hours, but turned into 5 minutes.
After a day on the set, when you sleep, do you have nightmares about the creepy dark atmosphere of the show?
-Not at all. This is Hannibal's dream. Not his nightmare.
What was it like working with Gillian Anderson?
-Outstanding. Fantastic. She's a stunning living legend.
how do you want Hannibal's future to pan out?
-I want him to get inside that jail and then outside that jail again. That dramatic roller coaster we anticipate.
which character from hannibal do you relate to the most?
-Hannibal relates the most to Will. I relate mostly to Hannibal.
question for Mads: how are your cooking skills in real life?
Mads what's your favorite thing about Fannibals?
-That you exist.
What has been your favorite *new* location/set for season 2?
-The asylum. It was masterfully done. So beautiful. So much atmosphere.
I'm told we're trending around the world, but I don't know what that means. #GoneMads
Did you ever expect #Hannibal to have such an incredible turn-out?
-We all hoped and now are super pleased that we have this group of people following us with such enthusiasm.
Hi Mads, what's been your favourite dish to eat that Hannibal's made? They all look delicious (minus the human..)
-A foie gras - Laurence and I deliberately f'd up the scene to eat it again.
Q for Mads: What's your favorite murder of Hannibal's so far?
-Dr. Sutcliffe in S1, the fact that I made his mouth the biggest in history. Season 2 even better.
Mads you are an incredible actor! Hannibal is brilliant! Who designs your amazing suits? :D
-The amazing Chris Hargadon, our costume designer.
1h Q for Mads, what do you find more of a daily inspiration, Aaron's boundless talent or his magnificent bone structure?
-It's gotta be a combo of the two and never knowing when he's going to land on my table.
what is the funniest thing that's happened to you on set?
-Someone kept snoring when filming the body mural in S2 and because so many bodies were there we didn't know who.
how do you feel when people recognize you on the street as the actor who plays as Hannibal?
-I feel good. That means that people are watching! It doesn't happen that often since I'm usually wearing a hat.
what's been the most surprising part of putting hannibal together?
-The cast coming together the way they have. Also being able to deliver really startling imagery on network TV!
So good chatting. I'm told I'm going to check out Tumblr now. #GoneMads

#Hannibal countdown: The day of the reckoning has come....
Mar 4 14 1:30 PM
The visually stunning series by executive producer Bryan Fuller had its second season premiere last Friday, Feb. 28, (and the first season was recently made available on Amazon Prime), but if you are still unsure about becoming a Fannibal, let these reasons sway you to stay for dinner.
You Have A Visual Eye"Hannibal" is one of the most stylized shows on television, but that should come to no surprise if you're a fan of Bryan Fuller. Every one of Fuller's previous shows look like nothing else on TV, and "Hannibal" is no exception. Everything is beautiful, from the murder scenes and set design to the food preparation.
You Love "True Detective"Both shows deal with the hunt for a serial killer. There are gruesome sacrificial killings, plus both shows have a thing for antlers.
You're A David Lynch FanSpeaking about the show at Comic Con last year, Fuller noted his influences for the series: "There's a very distinct Kubrick-ian visual aesthetic to the show, and I think the two biggest influences for me in writing the show were Stanley Kubrick and David Lynch. I literally sat down with a blank page and said, 'What would David Lynch do with Hannibal Lecter?'"
You Have A Strong StomachWe're not gonna lie, "Hannibal" is pretty gruesome. In fact, you'll be wondering how they allow such gore on network television, BUT do not let that dissuade you from viewing. While some scenes can be a little stomach-turning (we are talking about serial killers here), they are always important to the plot. You can always just watch those scenes through your fingers.
You Need A New Fashion InspirationHannibal's taste in everything is impeccable, including his fashion. He is almost always dressed in a tailored three-piece suit. So if you're looking for a new look, put down the latest issue of GQ and pick up the remote.
You Are A FoodieWhile some of crime scenes may be a little hard to stomach, the scenes involving Hannibal's food preparation are the stuff of a food lover's dreams. Hannibal is a cannibal after all, but the meals he prepares for his guests are true works of art, and will have you signing up for a cooking class in no time.
You Miss "Wonderfalls"Bryan Fuller's first series, "Wonderfalls" was short-lived and starred Caroline Dhavernas as Jaye, a girl who is plagued with the gift of inanimate objects talking to her and forcing her to help strangers. The premise sounds strange, but Dhavernas pulled it off, and now she is back with Fuller as Dr. Alana Bloom on "Hannibal." And for you "Wonderfalls" fans, keep your eyes peeled for another familiar face in a quick cameo.
You Miss Other Bryan Fuller ShowsAside from Dhavernas, other Fuller alumni pop up on the series like Raul Esparza (who had a stint on "Pushing Daisies") and Eddie Izzard, who was in Fuller's "Munsters" reboot, "Mockingbird Lane."
You Need More Gillian Anderson In Your LifeDana Scully has been out of the television spotlight for awhile, but she has made "Hannibal" part of her return to the small screen, along with "The Fall" and NBC's upcoming "Crisis." Here Anderson plays Hannibal's therapist. Not only is she fantastic, but she looks better than ever.
You Love "Silence Of The Lambs"For you superfans of the novels about Hannibal Lecter, you should be happy to know that Fuller has plans to adapt all of them into the series. Fuller revealed his seven season plan to Assignment X. The first three seasons will be original stories and then "when you get into Season 4, you get into the literature," said Fuller. "So Season 4 would be 'Red Dragon,' Season 5 would be the 'Silence of the Lambs' era, Season 6 would be the 'Hannibal' era, and then Season 7 would be a resolve to the ending of that book."
You're A Shipper
While his wife, Claire Danes, is busy with Brody on "Homeland," Hugh Dancy has his hands full playing Will Graham, who is brought in by the FBI to help catch the serial killer in the first season of "Hannibal." Will and Hannibal have a special relationship, one that some Fannibals want taken to the next level.
"Hannibal" airs Fridays at 10 p.m. EST on NBC.

In 2005, when Mads Mikkelsen learned he’d landed the
biggest role of his career to date (Le Chiffre, the cunning, villainous
banker opposite Daniel Craig’s James Bond in 2006's Casino Royale), he
found it difficult to comprehend why those around him were so worked
up. “I’d never seen a Bond film at that point,” he says, laughing.
Instead of getting excited, Mikkelsen did what comes most natural: he
homed in on the task at hand.
“I have the strange ability to shut things out,” Mikkelsen says.
“Otherwise you just start shitting your pants and don’t focus on what
Laser-sharp concentration and a pristine sense of clarity and purpose
have served Mikkelsen well: The 48-year-old actor, already an A-list
movie star in his native Denmark, has seen his Hollywood star rise in a
major way over the past year. It’s thanks in large part to his titular
role as the infamous, brilliant psychopathic cannibal, Dr. Hannibal
Lecter, on NBC’s surprise-hit of a mind-bending drama, Hannibal, which kicks off its second season February 28th.
Lecter remains a mentally challenging role for Mikkelsen — “To put
yourself in the mindset of a man like that is obviously not simple”—
though it serves as the perfect vessel for American audiences to get a
healthy dose of the classically trained actor’s typically formidable
onscreen persona: oft-understated, steely-eyed, slithering. Mikkelsen is
the rare breed of actor able to accomplish as much with his body or
eyes — a slight nod or a subtle wink — as one of Lecter’s trademark
“I try to eliminate words as much as possible,” says Mikkelsen, who
won the Best Actor award last year at the Cannes Film Festival for his
portrayal of a teacher wrongfully accused of pedophilia in the
Oscar-nominated Danish film, The Hunt. “There is a tendency to
underestimate the power of what we can do without words. Sometimes you
can make a scene even more powerful and precise without dialogue.”
It’s Mikkelsen’s ability to be still, in the moment and self-aware, that most impresses — and occasionally scares — his Hannibal co-star,
Laurence Fishburne. “He has this kind of danger that’s really evident,”
the actor contends. “It’s like, ‘What’s he going to do next?’”
Growing up the youngest son of a banker and nurse in Nørrebro, a
northwest district of Copenhagen, acting was never a viable career
option for Mikkelsen. A professional dancer for a decade before leaving
to enroll in drama school, Mikkelsen (whose brother Lars is also an
actor) eventually drew upon a childhood love of radio drama, instilled
in him by his father, when turning to acting.
“There was an imagination working really hard in us from the very
beginning,” he says of his and Lars’ early fascination with listening to
horror stories on cassette tape. “We’d close our eyes and really
imagine that we were in the story. And we’d hear it again and again and
we could do all the voices by heart.”
Mikkelsen first emerged as a formidable acting presence in mid-’90s
Denmark, a central player alongside directors Nicolas Winding Refn, Lars
Van Trier and Thomas Vinterberg in Scandinavia’s contemporary film
renaissance. He and Refn, in particular, found a creative muse in each
other. “It was like a blast of power,” Refn recalls of first meeting
Mikkelsen when the then-31-year-old drama student auditioned for his
breakout role as a chatterbox of a drug dealer in Refn’s acclaimed 1996
crime drama Pusher.
The two continued to work together in the following years — including on two additonal Pusher films
— each helping the other increase his profile. “My alter-ego during
that period was definitely Mads Mikkelsen, and always will be,” says
Refn, who adds he feels the time and situation is ripe for the pair to
reunite on a film together. “There’s a very deep-rooted river between us
that needs to run red again.”
For now, Hannibal’s success has Mikkelsen, a husband and
father of two, fast becoming a household name in America. To that end,
he finds himself fielding numerous offers for roles in marquee films.
Ask him if he long ached for Hollywood notoriety, however, and he can
“It was never part of my dream,” he says. “I never went for it. I never seeked it out.”
Mikkelsen, for his part, does offer one benefit to his recent good fortune in Hollywood.
“In Denmark we’re making 20 films a year,” he says. “If I’m showing
up in even two of those people will get tired of me really fast. So this
enables me to work more than, say, two months a year.”
