Actor Name: Mads Mikkelsen
An accomplished psychologist and incomparable master of manipulation, Dr. Hannibal Lecter likes to wind up his toys and watch them go – as his friend and patient Will Graham knows firsthand. As Dr. Lecter continues his dangerous dance with the FBI, it is unclear if his “human suit” will provide an adequate disguise, or if his true nature will be revealed, putting those closest to him at great risk.
Mads Mikkelsen stars in "Hannibal" as the accomplished psychologist and sociopathic serial killer, Dr. Hannibal Lecter, who is based on the character from Thomas Harris’ classic novels.
