Bryan Fuller is bringing a star of one of his former shows along for the ride on his new NBC series “Hannibal.”
Caroline Dhavernas — who starred in Fuller’s short-lived FOX dramedy “Wonderfalls” — will play a psychiatrist who consults with the FBI on “Hanniabal.” The show will premiere sometime in 2013 on NBC.
Fuller tweeted the news Wednesday night (Aug. 1), and TVLine has some details: Dhavernas will play a character named Dr. Alana Stewart, a former student of Hannibal Lecter’s (Mads Mikkelsen) who now teaches at Georgetown and sometimes works with the FBI.
She introduces Lecter to her FBI boss, Jack Crawford (Laurence Fishburne), and profiler Will Graham (Hugh Dancy), and there’s your series.
Dhavernas also starred on ABC’s “Off the Map” in 2010-11. Her other recent credits include “The Pacific” and “Devil.”
