There’s two types of anger one is dry and the other wet and basically wet anger is when your eyes water and your voice shakes and I hate that cause I feel weak when I’m crying while angry I like dry anger when your face is like stone and your voice is sharp I guess wet anger shows that you care too much and dry anger means you’re done.
[Writer / executive producer Steve Lightfoot] pitched Hannibal setting up Chilton, and he’s like ‘we gotta kill Chilton,’ and I was like ‘okay, but I don’t want to kill Chilton.’ I didn’t have a problem breaking the canon of the book so much as breaking my own heart. I love the character, and I love Raul [Esparza]. [The process then] was like ‘well, he could get shot and survive,’ and then it’s like ‘okay, Chilton is going to be our Kenny. We’re going to kill him off every single season, and it’s insurmountable that he will survive, and yet he will.’
“Even in the books, it’s not clear that Chilton dies … I think that Chilton’s in it for the long haul, and I love what Anthony Heald did in the films, and I feel like Raul is bringing a different sensibility that is respecting what Anthony has done while also making the character his own in a great way. He’s too mischievous and bratty and fun. I gotta figure out how we’re going to hurt him in season 4.
