Mads Mikkelsen on superhero style, Star Wars and real-life cannibalism
Q: Who’s the sharpest character you’ve played?
A: Hannibal, by far. I’ve had fantastic outfits on before, but we’re talking about a man who’s deciding his own costume, it has to be Hannibal.
What’s your favourite suit he wore?
A: I have it back home. It’s a grey, reddish striped thing that Bryan Fuller actually made a copy of for himself, which they gave me at the end of shooting.
Did you keep anything else from the show?
A: That was about it. There might’ve been a few other little props that I put in my pocket, but I won’t tell you because they might want it back.
What style advice can we take away from Hannibal?
A: Dress as if there is no tomorrow.
If you had to eat anyone, who would it be and what would you make with it?
A: The world would’ve been better off if Hannibal had eaten Hitler. But then again he has to go on and eat Stalin and Mao as well, it’s going to be a lot of meals there. But let’s eat Hitler. It has to be German sausages with some sauerkraut on the side.
