So a while back I watched A Royal Affair, a fantastic period drama which featured, among other things, Mads Mikkelsen's character being dragged to the scaffold and beheaded.
Which I, of course, was excited by. And then felt awful because 1) based on a real historical figure and 2) it was a really sad and tragic scene so I was also crying.
But it was still pretty exciting. I gotta take what fetish fuel I can get.
Now, Mads Mikkelsen has skyrocketed in popularity in America lately, due to taking on the high profile role of Hannibal on NBC's drama Hannibal. (It's a fantastic show, go watch it. I'll wait.)
And in the latest episode, Hannibal is captured by another killer and ... strung up in a noose, teetering on a bucket, his arms lashed to a post so he's posed almost crucifixion-style. Also, he is soaking wet having just gone for a swim, and he's only wearing a pair of swim trunks.
It's like they read my post and were like "Oh hey, she likes hangings, she likes men in nooses, she doesn't get enough of either of those things in the media ... let's give her that. In HD. With one of her favorite actors. On one of her favorite shows."
Bless you, Bryan Fuller, bless you.
