If Margot Verger had been included in the script to Hannibal back in 2001, who do you think could have played her?


But remember, as my plastic surgeon always said: if you gotta go, go with a smile.

Big Mo playing the role of Margot verger....oh classic choice there CE Laughing Bravo Made me burst out laughing so much I'm sure the little brother downstairs heard me Grin

A little bit of useless info coming up.....Laila Morse is not her real name, neither she nor Gary have ever disclosed it.

As for my choice for an actress to play Margot....the only one I can think of is Pam Ferris!! Purely because she played Miss Trunchbull, the headmistress, in 'Matilda'....I was subjected to watching it one Christmas afternoon Roll eyes

If she'd bulked up a little bit like her ex husband...

Brigitte Nielsen.

For some silly reason I always picture her when reading the book Laughing

Failing that, Richard Simmons Laughing Laughing Laughing

She was not supposed to be unatractive, just built and butch. Remember the scene with Barney in the shower, and definitely not saggy fat like Kathy Bates .
I'd say someone like Cory Everson who was Ms Olympia for years in the 80's and is still around [she was in Nautral Born Killers and in Double Impact ]

Juliette Bergmann would do too, looks the part to me. This picture is about 4 years old. This is a girl who could crack nuts for sure. Posted Image, might have been reduced in size. Click Image to view fullscreen.

Damn.

Girls should not look like that.

I just tossed out Kathy Bates because she's a character actor.

Thumb I always did that too !


Could he daily feel a stab of hunger for her ? Find nourishment in the very sight of her? I think so.
But would she see through the bars of his plight, and ache for him?

Why wasn't Margot in the film, i found her omission rather annoying Angry Was it because they couldn't find a suitable actress or was she thought not essential to the plot- meaning they had to change Mason's death as well.

I feel that dropping so many characters is INEXCUSABLE! Particularly ditching the whole ending with Hannibal and Clarice to include one which they presumably felt would satisfy the audience more. Also, I imagine Margot looking like those female (Or possibly male) body builders, and younger than many of the suggested actresseS. Remember, she was hoping to have a child.

Well if the doctor treated her when she was 10 or 12 or so, and that was before he got arrested but not much, because it was while Mason was his patient which was shortly before he killed him. And say the doctor was in trial for 1 year and spent 8 years in the Assylum and then 8 years went by since he escaped, give or take, that makes a total of 17 years , even if we round them up to 20, she would then be in her early to mid thirties during Hannibal.
That is just a ball point figure.
So that all the actrices suggested were WAY too old.
Remember that , from the incident in the shower with Barney she was in great shape and rather attractive.

Maybe Angelina Jolie then? Was she already discussed? Study

Semi off note: I never much cared for Margot. From what I remember, while she may have been attractive, she was described as a body builder/someone way too into exercise. Muscular women, to me, are just ... no.

Personally I think that the soprano Cecelia Bartoli has a vigorous masculinity about her which is not usually acknowledged, but every time I see her perform (particularly the last couple of years) I am reminded of Harris' description of Margot's "corded neck". When Bartoli sings she puts a lot of effort into her dynamic facial manouvres, the most entertaining for the connoisseur of facial squeezes since Julian Bream started treating his audience to displays of gurning whilst strumming the classical guitar. Often she looks as if she is trying to deliver a breeched birth as well as deliver arpeggios. But who am I to critisize, just try getting hold of tickets for her performances.

She isn't a bodybuilder, but her intensity and ambivalent gender projection therefore get her my vote.

Second would be the daughter of the late actor Oliver Reed, but I'm sure no member of the Studiolo has ever seen her, so no point in me waxing lyrical about her!

Didn't Oliver Reed play a character named Hannibal once?

I love it when stuff goes full circle.

Yes, you're right Melissa! I think he played a soldier wandering about the alps with an elephant.

I too love it when things go full circle, and the more obscure the connections the better.

I only saw his daughter once on a documentary about Reed's life, but she was a very handsome woman, and has stuck in my mind. Can't find any pictures of her on the web, though.

Well, initially I was thinking of Sue Price. I saw her a long time ago in a series of movies called "Nemesis" - the movies were pretty bad, but she was amazing. Here's a funny story about that. I remember I was uncertain at first (keep in mind that I was a kid at the time) whether she was a man or a woman. The fact that the character's name was Alex did not help. Then I figured she was female and found myself wondering, "Is she for real or is it make up?" I was absolutely fascinated with her. I loved her.

I think she qualifies for the description of "massive shoulder." ^^^

However, I have since become totally enamoured of Cory Everson, thanks to Clariz. She may not have the absolutely huge muscles described in the book, but she is gorgeous.

Fortunately, I don't have to choose. And to be honest, I think either of those two ladies would be great as Margot.

That would be an excellent casting choice, Purple. She immediately struck me as a good Margot when I first saw her, too xD


There was a forest on fire inside her.
