It was announced yesterday that the immensely talented and disarmingly gorgeous Gillian Anderson will be returning to Hannibal for its third season, this time as a series regular. Anderson, who is openly bisexual, recurred in the first two seasons of the NBC thriller as Bedelia du Maurier, Hannibal Lecter’s shrink. Those who saw the second season finale shouldn’t be surprised to find out they’ll be seeing more of Bedelia. Anderson has had a serious relationship with a woman in real life, but it was Katharine Isabelle who portrayed lesbian Margot Verger in the last season of the series.
To celebrate once again seeing the former X-Files star weekly on network television, let’s take a look at our favorite GIFs of Gillian in Hannibal.
