Armitage will play Francis Dolarhyde, a serial killer whose habit of biting his victims has earned him the nick-name “The Tooth Fairy”. Dolarhyde was the primary antagonist in Thomas Harris’ “Red Dragon” novel and subsequent film adaptation which had the character played by Ralph Fiennes . Armitage will have a 6-episode arc, which begins with the season’s eight episode.
