We’ve known for some time that Anderson was tapped to play Lecter’s own psychiatrist. In a mutli-episode guest spot, Scully will become Dr. Bedelia Du Maurier. Back in December, Fuller had this to say about her casting: “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.”
