Hugh-Dancy.Net – Fansite for Hugh Dancy
A fansite for the talented Hugh Dancy


Issue Six of Article Magazine

My copy of Article Magazine Issue Six arrived in the mail today. The issue is packaged very well to keep the magazine safe. Stated on their site “the whole magazine is encased inside a beautiful sleeve case”, they really do mean beautiful. When holding it in your hands you can really take a look at the beautifully done the sleeve actually is, both professional and authentic. It gives the magazine a feeling of the same degree. Something that is either set out for company to look through or put on show near the merchandise of his films, funkos, etc. It is more like an artful book rather than a magazine, really high quality. It truly is a masterpiece.

I have seen, collected, and read many magazines but this one really does stand out among the crowd.

First, the binding. It is such a unique and beautiful way to hold the magazine together. The pages are filled with many things that I think any fan of art, film, fashion and more would enjoy. Not only did the FULL SIXTEEN BEAUTIFUL pages of Hugh catch my eye but so did everything else within this issue.

The photoshoot, done by the talented Matt Holyoak, really captures the essence of the magazine as well as what I feel is one of Hugh’s best photoshoots to date. I need to take a moment to give ARTICLE MAGAZINE praise for this beautifully crafted issue, the photographer also, and the interviewer! Paul Vaughan is a genius. He really knows how to focus on the interviewee. Paul does his homework, looks into the career of Hugh and seems to really know how to handle this interview. I think it’s one of my favorite interviews so far. It left me feeling happy and enthused about The Path and it was nice with the slips of Cold Feet, The Big C as well as the discussion about Hannibal, Martha Marcy May Marlene and Deadline Gallipoli.

All in all, the people over at Article Magazine KNOW what they are doing and not only do I recommend getting Issue Six, I also recommend picking up other issues as well and keeping an eye on them for their upcoming ones. I am so enthusiastic about this and recommend it to anyone who likes film, art, fashion — or for this issue Hugh! Happy reading!

Article Magazine – Issue Six – Pre-Order Now

Hugh is featured in issue six of Article Magazine. It includes 16 full pages of photos and an interview that they did with him. You can pre-order it now on their site. More information is included below. If you have any additional questions they have a twitter account that you can follow here. REALLY excited about this magazine!

In our previous issue, we explored how British individuality has evolved from its island identity; this time round, by contrast, we look at the things that bring us together. From the mass euphoria of Nineties clubland to the overwhelming horror of the First World War to London street life, these are the places and moments in time that have come to define Britishness in all its forms.

We unravel the unlikely delights of the nation’s cuisine, and investigate the long history of our national passion for the exotic. We travel the length and breadth of the country, talking to the team behind Richard James about their sartorial journey from Savile Row to the Andes, and to Lou Dalton about her Shropshire childhood; to legendary Covent Garden retailer Zeev Aram about Eileen Gray’s renaissance, and to Mayfair shoemaker G.J. Cleverly & Sons about preserving their craft in the twenty-first century. We go far beyond Britain’s borders too, from Berlin (to speak to Hugh Dancy, star of American primetime series Hannibal) to outer space, with kirigami artist Marc Hagan-Guirey’s extraordinary homage to Star Wars. And the latest instalment of our Circular Project features the stunning monochrome images of Lucy McLauchlan.

The limited ‘Collector’s Edition’ version of ARTICLE is available as direct order only, and comes complete with a range of additional materials and exclusive content. This Collector’s Edition will include a special double-sided poster featuring the work of kirigami artist Marc Hagan-Guirey, from his latest Star Wars series. If you pre-order before 30th September, you will also be able to have your name – or another name of your choosing – printed inside the special sleeve case of Issue Six.

The special price for this edition is £9.00 GBP (instead of the usual retail price of £11.00). Order now, and you will receive this Collector’s Edition delivered straight to your door in early November.

ARTICLE is the perfect gift – whether for yourself, or for anyone who appreciates beautiful design and individual content.

‘Hannibal’s’ Bryan Fuller on the “Obscure” Finale, Movie Hopes: “There’s a Few Ways to Go”

[Warning: This story contains spoilers from the Hannibal series finale, “The Wrath of the Lamb.”] 

That’s all she wrote, Hannibal fans.

Saturday’s series finale featured Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) and Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) joining forces to take down Francis Dolarhyde, aka the Red Dragon (Richard Armitage), once and for all via a complex plan hatched in Will’s head. As the former FBI consultant helped Hannibal escape prison in order to tempt the serial killer into revealing himself, Dolarhyde caught up with the men to unleash a blood bath.

During the series’ final scene Dolarhyde was indeed eliminated, but rather than celebrate, Will and Hannibal clutched each other on the edge of an eroding cliff. “This is all I ever wanted for you,” says Hannibal right before the pair head over the edge into the watery abyss below and the end credits cue.

In order to get some closure on that final scene, find out what was supposed to come next and get an update on the potential Hannibal movie, The Hollywood Reporter caught up with showrunner Bryan Fuller.

Why did you want to end it this way?

The story we were telling with Will in this season was one where a fated conclusion was inevitable. Early on in the Italian chapter, Will Graham essentially said, “I have to kill Hannibal Lecter or I’m going to become Hannibal Lecter.” He later finds deviation from that course with a family unit that gives him a grounding that he never had before. When he is pulled back into the FBI and Hannibal Lecter’s orbit, it’s essentially a drug addict returning to the needle and not being strong enough to beat it the second time. He realizes his original intention in the Italian arc is still valid and has to be respected. We knew at the end of this season it was going to be some sort of Sherlock and Moriarty off the Reichenbach falls.

Should viewers assume one or both of them are dead given that this is a series finale now?

I don’t think you can assume anything. It’s very intentionally left obscure but hopefully somewhat satisfying for the audience. If there is a continuation of this story with Will Graham and Hannibal Lecter and Hugh Dancy and Mads Mikkelsen in those roles then of course they survived. And if not then it’s a big fat question mark.

How was it to craft that final moment between the two characters given their romance?

It came out of a conversation with Hugh Dancy. We were talking about [how] this last scene with these two characters had to be poetic and poignant and simple and clean. It seemed to boil it down to Hannibal saying, “This is all I ever wanted for you,” and Will acknowledging that it is indeed beautiful that thing Hannibal wanted for him, and realizing in that moment he couldn’t go back so he had to go over the edge.

Is there a story behind the final song during that scene?

Susie Suh is one of my favorite performers. I’ve seen her in concert more often than I’ve seen anybody so to have her write a song for the show is an incredible honor. We found out she was a fan of the show and Brian Reitzell, our composer, asked if she would be interested in it. She essentially said she hasn’t been inspired to write in a long time until she saw Hannibal and was inspired to write again. So it was quite a coup for us to be able to secure that song and include it in the finale. It’s a career highlight — I’m so over the moon that we were able to pull that off.

What kind of homages did you throw to Thomas Harris during the finale episode with some of the dialogue and setups?

There were a lot of things from the book that were prose, really, and not meant to be dialogue. We put it in actors’ mouths because it was so beautifully written and we wanted the DNA of Thomas Harris to be present in all of the episodes. There’s an interesting sequence in the last two where Jack Crawford and Hannibal Lecter say to Will the same line about playing games the darker the moon. It’s a reflection of their being both the devil and the angel on Will Graham’s shoulders and the fluidity of those roles. The text and the fetishization of the text was really all about the want to honor Thomas Harris in this adaptation.

Are there any characters you feel at this point are incomplete?

Alana Bloom is the one character who arguably has a happy ending. She gets to fly off into the sunset with her billionaire wife and live happily ever after presumably. If there were a season four that would come into question. For now it felt like that character deserved a happy ending and deserved to get away. Where the other characters were varying degrees of dirty, even though Alana got her hands dirty in the Italian chapter, she was an innocent who was corrupted by the circumstances and then somehow found her way back to an innocent life.

Are you still looking to wrap with a movie?

[Executive producer] Martha De Laurentiis is looking into financing for a film. I’m still hoping that we get to tell that story in some way. There is something in the novel Hannibal that has not been done in any of the adaptations and I would love to explore that with Will Graham and Hannibal Lecter. I’m hoping that someday, whether it’s a year from now … two years from now … that we will continue to get to tell that story. I feel like if Will Graham did survive that plunge, his most interesting chapter is yet to be told.

Have you given any thought to who you would have wanted to play Clarice Starling in your dream world?

There’s two ways. If you were to go that traditional route, Ellen Page would knock it out of the park. She’s a brilliant actress and has a lot of the qualities that we remember about Jodie Foster’s performance but yet unique in her skill set as an actress. That would be one way to go. But I do think it would be interesting to cast someone who is not white in that role and use race experientially as a defining attribute of the character.

Are there any other venues where this can live on?

There’s a few ways to go. The movie route is very appealing because we have movie actors. It would be great to see them on the big screen and we’ve always shot the show as though it were an independent movie with an independent film esthetic. Coming full circle in return to the big screen is very promising. But it would be interesting to discuss a miniseries or some sort of continuation of the story with another network once all the hubbub of this series has gone fallow. Who knows? Maybe there is an opportunity for us to address things with MGM and Clarice Starling now that the show has completed its run on NBC and there is an opportunity for a rebirth of sorts.

Does the challenge then become telling a complete story for those who haven’t caught up with the series?

Oh no, there’s always a way to come into a story that gives new audiences and old audiences the same entry point with the same satisfaction of witnessing the tale.

Is there anything you’ve learned during this adaptation process that you’re now able to apply to Starz’s American Gods?

Absolutely. [Executive producer] Michael Green and I are very much taking a learned approach to adaptation. One of the things I loved about doing Hannibal was honoring the spirit of the book without necessarily keeping true to the specific plot points as came up for the characters. Sometimes changing a character’s story or swapping stories from the book so it felt new for the show. For instance, in this past season I didn’t want to see Dolarhyde bite the lips off and set fire to a woman. So it felt like a natural substitute to have Chilton set in that flaming wheelchair instead of Freddie Lounds. There are definitely instances in American Gods that we are shifting perspective on. Hopefully they will be as satisfying to American Gods audiences as it was to the Hannibal audience.

Were you satisfied with the Hannibal finale? Sound off below.
