NBC’s Hannibal has its leading lady.
EW confirms Wonderfalls star Caroline Dhavernas will reunite with Bryan Fuller, who helms the adaptation, as she takes on the role of Dr. Alana Bloom, an FBI consultant and psychology professor.
The ex-Off The Map star, whose casting was announced by Fuller on Twitter, joins the already announced cast of Laurence Fishburne, who plays FBI Behavioral Sciences Unit leader Jack Crawford; Hugh Dancy, who plays FBI agent Will Graham; and Mad Mikkelsen, who takes on the title role. Per the story, Bloom knows Will, but fears for his safety after he’s recruited by Crawford.
The 13-episode serial killer thriller will air in midseason.
