….Mischa Lecter was killed and eaten as a small child. They fed her to Hannibal when he was a small child, and she is a major piece of the puzzle of his character make-up.
So, this is a cool fantasy cast for an AU where Mischa lived, (Maybe Hannibal was able to save her?) but it would make no sense on the show at all.
Bryan Fuller has proven that he’s ready, willing and able to fuck around with the source material for Hannibal and still have it make sense for Hannibal’s character, so I’d say anything is possible, and this would be an awesome change from the books. I mean, I don’t see anyone complaining that Hannibal himself has a psychiatrist that he sees (and that’s a big divergence from the source material), because Gillian Anderson is that fuckin’ boss.
And Fuller has shown that if he can turn a male character into a lady character, or put more ladies in his shows, he will jump at the chance. Abigail Hobbs was a one-sentence mention in Red Dragon, and he turned her into the ENTIRE PLOT of the first season. Mischa Lecter is barely a character in the books, so I can’t see Fuller having her as a flashback one-off.
(I’ve been rewatching season one, and thinking way too much about the ladies on Hannibal and why I adore them.)
Nina Arianda; September 18, 1984
I feel ill when I’m not doing it, so there’s something in that. And I think that’s a very special, very weird thing about actors. You feel more like yourself playing something else, and there’s a great deal of comfort in that. You feel at home. From that place, you can communicate who you are. It’s my Facebook and my Twitter and it’s my love at the same time. I share myself when I’m on stage, and it’s with a higher purpose, which is representing, in this case, a strong, layered, complex, brilliant woman. (x)
After looking at more gif sets and clips of Venus in Furs, I have come to the conclusion that Nina Arianda is the only acceptable casting choice for Mischa Lecter on Hannibal.
Given Bryan Fuller’s love of awesome ladies in his shows, I really hope he has Mischa as either an older teen or a grown-up even if she is not around in the current show timeline. Someone who is a fully-formed, mature person rather than a cipher for Hannibal’s angst like in Hannibal Rising.
