Hugh Dancy Jokes About Forgetting Lines On ‘Hannibal’ Set

Hannibal Season 3 is right around the corner, and Hugh Dancy is in the mood to joke about his experiences on set. 

We are just a week away from the premiere of Hannibal Season 3, and already we’re starting to hear more and more from the cast and crew about what is in store this season. In addition to teasing this upcoming season of the show, we’re getting insight on what it’s like to be an actor on the set of Hannibal.

In an interview with Backstage, Hugh Dancy joked about forgetting his lines on set with Mads Mikkelsen.

“There are some really wonderful pauses between Mads and I,” says Dancy, who then adds with a laugh, “and broadly speaking, that’s because one of us is trying to remember the lines.”

There are plenty of pauses between the two characters, and it’s funny to hear Dancy having some fun with this little element of the show. It’s a big part of the series, as the interactions between Hannibal and Will Graham are intense when they happen and usually end in interesting ways.

That’s how things ended last season and it should pick right back up where we left off. Hopefully, though, Hugh Dancy and Mads Mikkelsen are able to remember their lines for this season.
