HANNIBAL Star Katharine Isabelle Reveals Plans For Margot Verger If The Series Ever Returns (Exclusive)

Hannibal ended on a major cliffhanger, and talk has persisted of a revival ever since. Now, Margot Verger actress Katharine Isabelle reveals what creator Bryan Fuller has planned for her character...

We recently caught up with Katharine Isabelle to discuss her role as Barbara in Night of the Animated Dead, an animated retelling of George A. Romero's 1968 horror classic Night of the Living Dead. It's set to be released digitally on September 21, and on Blu-Ray Combo Pack & DVD on October 5.

One of the many places you'll likely recognise Isabelle from is Hannibal. The series ran from 2013 - 2015 and ended before its time. Since then, talks of a revival have never gone away, so we had to ask the actress if she might be back as Margot Verger. After murdering her brother, Mason, she went on the run under threat of death from Dr. Lecter, but there's definitely room for her story to continue.

"I have been told so by our incredible creator Bryan Fuller," Isabelle responded when asked about the possibilty of returing to the role. "I do know that he has ideas for Margot’s continuing life in the future. There was some talk of her turning their slaughterhouse empire into, like, a vegan something or other to change the world in a positive way. I would hope so, of course, and I absolutely love that show."

"I still haven’t seen the final two episodes because, to me, and I do this with books and TV shows I love, if I don’t finish it, it’s not over [Laughs]. So, I actually haven’t seen the last two episodes of Hannibal because I’m just like, ‘No, it’s fine. I still have that to go back to. It’s not over for me.’"

Things have been quiet on the Hannibal front for a while now, but Mads Mikkelsen said earlier this year that talks have been "revitalised" since the entire series was added to Netflix. We'll just have to wait and see what happens, but we're certainly intrigued to see what could become of that slaughterhouse!
