"Hugh Dancy was the first actor cast and that made the project all that more appetizing for Mads Mikkelsen, who knew Hugh and worked with him in the past and rightfully adored him."
"I’m not so good at computers and stuff, but I do believe we have a group of fans of Hannibal that call themselves “fannibals,” about 700,000 people. I don’t think you see that in films because this [is] on every week and fans start communicating about the show. There’s a whole life in there that I don’t understand because I can’t even open a computer. With a film, it’s, you saw it, you can bring it back home and think about it or not. But with TV, if you get hooked on it, it seems to become a lifestyle. It’s a world I had no idea existed. I think it’s fascinating, and we have to be grateful because these are the people who watch our show."

David: We cast Mads’ face [for the Wendigo], and I remember I took lots of photos of him gurning with these various expressions, in a car park in Toronto, with all these people walking by. We were just like so obsessed with what we were doing, and after we’d done it we looked around at all these horrified looking people.
Hugh: That’s a good image.
