Caroline Dhavernas talks ‘Hannibal’ season 2, romance with Will and the ‘food’

The psychological drama Hannibal is proving to be a huge success for NBC and the show wrapped season one on May 23. Now star Caroline Dhavernas discussed the season, her character and what’s head in Hannibal season 3 in a new interview with Collider.

Hannibal - Season 2“I think it is a natural progression.  It was time for us to have more passion and more action in Season 2 than we had in Season 1,” she says in the article of the changes from season one to two. “Mostly, the passion is what I notice, as the big difference.  It’s needed.  It was a very cerebral first season.  There is, of course, blood and guts, but there’s more passion involved, so it’s even more interesting.”

The actress discussed Alana’s direction, Will and Hannibal from a romantic situation on the show.

“Will has done what he did and, at the beginning of Season 2, she believed that he did all of these things because he was sick, there’s no way she can go any further with that.  She only wants to be there to help him because it’s such a dire situation and she’s the only one who seems to think about his well-being, before wanting to take or use him for some reason.”

Fans would ask why Hannibal over Will.

Hannibal - Season 2” The romance with Will was never a good idea for her.  She knows that she has this savior complex, and that she would have wanted to study him and save him.  And then, Hannibal comes along and he’s an adult and it’s a sane relationship for her to have.  I think that’s why she goes to him.  She may not be as passionate, stepping into that relationship, as she was with Will, but it’s what she wants for herself.  Hannibal does everything out of pleasure for himself.  He never seems to have empathy or feelings of love and affection, apart from Will.  He does want to be Will’s friend, and I think he does have some love for him.  With Alana, you wonder if he’s just using her, or if he is really having a good time.  We don’t know.  I don’t know if we ever well.  It’s interesting to see that side of him, too.  We’ve never seen him romantically involved with anyone.  And Alana went to Hannibal.  He didn’t have to do much.  She’s the one who kissed him first, and who talked about this.  So, I don’t know if he’s that evil, or he’s that good at being evil, that he can just let people come to him.  And it all pissed off Will, which makes it all the more intriguing.”

Even she can’t believe the character will be able to handle the truth about what they’ve been eating when they dine with Hannibal.

“I don’t think you can wrap your mind around it.  It’s just so evil.  I remember seeing the movie Hannibal in preparation for this, because I hadn’t seen it.  And that scene at the table where Ray Liotta is being fed his own brain, I actually gagged.  It’s probably the most horrible thing a human being could imagine going through.  The idea of eating your own body is just yuck.  You can’t comprehend what happened, if you know that someone who supposedly has good intentions made you go through that.  They are all being chic and fancy about the food that they’re eating, but little did they know.  I wonder what human flesh tastes like.  I guess that Hannibal is such a good cook that he can make anyone or anything taste good”
