Because, damn it, it feels like there’s only 20 of us! I need proof.
can we all take a moment to appreciate how brilliant of an actor mads mikkelsen is
The devil is in the details, and never have the details been tailored so well until you’ve seen Mads Mikkelsen as Hannibal. A well contained evil in vibrant suits emits an attractive, silent sophistication that breathes new life to an old character already popularized by Anthony Hopkins. Unlike Hopkins, whose portrayal was more obvious in his insanity, Mads version complicates your emotions. Watching him unfold only inches at a time you become torn between being seduced by his well manners and captivated by his culinary skills. He is a high functioning sociopath whose wit is capable of devouring your soul while eluding the police, the very company he keeps. The methodology of maintaining his close interactions with law enforcement, and weaving in and out of their minds is almost like a contemporary song and dance that even when he is shown killing he is poised and graceful. Bryan Fuller explained when asked about Mikkelsen, ”He wanted this character to be a fallen angel who had an affinity for humanity and a love for the human condition, but also could be very punitive in a hellish way.” Indeed, his portrayal of a modern day beast embodied in Hannibal Lecter is proof that if Mads Mikkelsen was a real life Lucifer I’d nail my soul to the devil’s alter. Aside from the visual aesthetics of the show, the character arc in Hannibal Lecter is stunningly breathtaking. If you haven’t had the pleasure take the time to catch up now. With only six episodes in, a new fandom for the summer is a remedy indeed.

1. DECORATE SHOES FOR FRIEND WITH THE CUMBERFACE
2. GO TO STAR TREK PREMIERE @ LEICESTER SQUARE
(MORE LIKE DISCOVER GIFS AND A VIDEO OF BC WITH SAID SHOES MADE IT TO TUMBLR/YOUTUBE BEFORE I EVEN GOT HOME? OH GOD.)
He’s such a sweetheart! :D He signed one shoe first, then he suggested signing both of them and my brain just went offline. HOW IS HE REAL. I explained I made them for a friend of ours who couldn’t be there with us, b-but I can’t remember what he replied sobs. I’M SORRY.
I asked if I could take a picture with him & the shoes but totally expected him to say “sorry, no time!” so I was completely unprepared & totally failed at it. I was having trouble balancing my SFX book on one arm while holding up the shoes near him and aiming my camera at both with my other arm (and trying not to accidentally elbow anyone!)… so he just reached for the shoes and ACTUALLY POSED WITH THEM. OMFG.
Woah. BLOWN AWAY. HE IS SO AWESOME. AND ADORKABLE. :)
