EW: Gillian Anderson cast as Dr. Bedelia Du Maurier

Gillian Anderson is guesting in Hannibal in a multi-episode arc. Anderson is going to play Dr. Bedelia Du Maurier - Hannibal Lecter’s own therapist. “Every therapist needs their own head examined and we are ecstatic that Gillian Anderson has chosen Hannibal to mark her return to American television after 10 years to portray Dr. Lecter’s personal psychiatrist,” Fuller said in a statement. “Her intelligence and sophistication, not to mention her pedigree of ground-breaking TV, make her the perfect actress to match wits and psychological manipulations with one of the greatest villains of pop culture. I couldn’t be more excited.

This is a case of things coming full circle and is really neat since the X-Files creator Chris Carter was inspired by Silence of the Lambs to use FBI agents as the leads in his series, to provide the characters with a plausible reason for being involved in each case.
