Fans of Hannibal cheered yesterday afternoon when they learned Raul Esparza was returning to the series in season 3. The actor, who plays Dr. Chilton, was…
…shot in the face in season two. Chilton – who was under suspicion for murder at the time he was shot – was never to be seen again on the show leading many fans to believe he was dead. But showrunner Bryan Fuller says that is not the case and that Chilton will, in fact, have a pretty significant part in season 3.
How so? What’s Chilton’s place in it all? I spoke with Esparza on the Hannibal press carpet to find out more.
Hannibal will return to NBC in 2015, focusing on the hunt for Hannibal Lecter who has fled to Europe.
