There have been many conspiracy theories attached to the alleged coming of the fourth season of Hannibal and now series creator, Bryan Fuller has hinted that Mads Mikkelsen’s character could be pansexual.
On July 11, the cast and creators of the show held a virtual reunion and Fuller discussed fan theories regarding the sexual tension between Mikkelsen’s Dr. Hannibal Lecter and Hugh Dancy’s character Will Graham.
“From our very first meeting with Mads, he redefined the character immediately for me because he’s the devil,” Fuller said, according to NME. “He is this thing both of the world and outside of the world. So for me, the devil is pansexual.”
“I think Will Graham is a heterosexual character, but sexuality is fluid, and I think it would have to be a conversation where we would sit down and try to find… the most authentic expression of their relationship now,” he added.
