Hannibal - Season 1

"I think one of the most fun things you can say about [Hannibal] as a series killer, if you can say 'fun,' is that he has such a specific aesthetic," Bryan Fuller tells me when I ask about what makes Hannibal Lecter different from the "Dexters" of the TV landscape. Fuller adds that Lecter--played in NBC's "Hannibal" by Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen--is a dandy with a sense of joie de vivre.

The character, first made famous in Thomas Harris' novels before coming to the small screen under actor Brian Cox in "Manhunter" and later "Silence of the Lambs" with Anthony Hopkins, is hard to pin down: a killer of the "free range rude" as he notably says, one who has grabbed our attention for nearly 30 years now in one form or another. Showrunner and writer Bryan Fuller ("Pushing Daisies," "Wonderfalls," "Dead Like Me") has taken a shot at reinventing the character for TV with "Hannibal."

I spoke with Fuller recently about bringing America's favorite serial killer to NBC in the recently-concluded first season of "Hannibal," which is being released to home video this week. We chatted about the appeal of the character, Mikkelsen's approach to the role, the allure or evil, and just what creator Thomas Harris thinks of the latest incarnation of his most popular character.

The actress, who got her start in 2001's "Donnie Darko," has since made an impression with regular parts in television shows like "Breaking Bad," "Glee," and "Raising Hope" (she's been busy).

But will she survive her time trapped under the dome with the other residents of the small Maine town of Chester's Mill? And what does she think of the experience of bringing a character from Stephen King's writing to the screen?
