[Bryan Fuller on Margot Verger] In the novel, she’s a very masculine character, who has had years of steroid abuse and is a lesbian, and it was unclear to me in the novel whether she was either transgender or a lesbian as a result of those horrible abuses and that horrible childhood and [Beat.] that’s not how transgenderism or homosexuality works. So I didn’t want to contribute to that misconception of what it is to be transgender or a gay woman.
Everybody’s telling me that it’s too horrifying to watch. People tell me like “oh, I turned that on and I just get grossed out. I can’t possibly..”. I think people are missing the point. | Raúl Esparza on Hannibal[x]
