Welcome Back Scully!

Gillian AndersonDopo le due interviste di David Duchovny che abbiamo pubblicato ieri, oggi è il turno di Gillian Anderson che risponde alle domande di USA Weekend.

Per favore, racconta ai nostri lettori una cosa che non hanno sentito da nessuna parte riguardo al film.
Gillian Anderson: Mulder e Scully non sono fratello e sorella. Questo è tutto quello che posso dire.

Di seguito trovate un'intervista di Newsweek ed anche un'intervista audio che Gillian ha rilasciato qualche giorno fa, tradotta dalla nostra Carlotta.
Gillian Anderson interview
A new "X-Files" movie: Welcome back, Scully!

It's 3 o'clock in the afternoon, and Gillian Anderson can't believe that her 18-month-old has been napping for three hours. Babies are a major theme in Anderson's life these days. At 39, the actress is expecting her third child (she also has a daughter, Piper, 13), and she's guessing that, at about four months pregnant, she'll be slightly wider when she walks the red carpet next Friday for the premiere of "The X-Files: I Want to Believe." It's the much-anticipated follow-up to the '90s sci-fi TV series that turned Anderson -- and her small-screen alter ego, FBI Special Agent Dana Scully, along with David Duchovny as her partner, Special Agent Fox Mulder -- into a household name.

In the six years since the series wrapped, Anderson has been living a decidedly un-Hollywood life in London with her partner, businessman Mark Griffiths. While their baby sleeps, Anderson opens up about her onscreen persona, pregnancy at almost 40 and Duchovny's bod.

How are you feeling?
Great. I'm past that terrible first three months. They were debilitating. I don't recall feeling that bad with my other two children. It makes you wonder why you subject yourself to that over and over again.

You were 24 when "The X-Files" started, and now you and Scully are almost 15 years older. How have you both changed?
I think she's a bit more mature, not only in the age sense. I may be completely delusional, but I feel just as goofy as I did back then.

So who has aged better, you or David?
David's in even better shape than he was when he was doing the series. In the film, he has a scene where his shirt is off. I'm sure fans will be happy with that.

What's it like gearing up for motherhood again at almost 40?
I started quite young, and my 13-year-old and I have a close, intense relationship. But there's something about having a bit more life experience behind me this time.

You've been married twice before. Any interest in marriage again?
I don't feel it would improve anything. So why fix something that's not broken?

You checked out of Hollywood and moved to England, where you lived as a child. Why?
I made a decision to move to a city that had less to do with the world of celebrity and Hollywood and more to do with the rest of the world.

Scully was so serious. What's one thing about yourself that would surprise people?
I laugh a lot. I can be silly and funny and goofy.

The movie's plot has been kept hush-hush, to say the least. Please tell our 50 million readers one thing that they won't hear anywhere else about the movie.
Mulder and Scully are not brother and sister. That's all I can say.

Online Bonus with Gillian Anderson

Q. Why did you want to reprise the role of Dana Scully?
When the series was over, I was pretty adamant about saying goodbye and closing that chapter. But it was always a given that we would come back together some day, and the time was right.

Q. How have you and Scully both changed since we first met you?
I think she's a bit more mature, not only in the age sense. I may be completely delusional, but I feel just as goofy as I did back then.

Q. At 3, your brother was diagnosed with neurofibromatosis, a rare genetic disorder of the nervous system that causes tumors to grow. What impact has that had on your life?
My brother's diagnosis had a tremendous impact on our whole family. My mom started support groups and has been very intensely involved in the Neurofibromatosis Association and research. My celebrity enables [me] to say things that people might not listen to otherwise.

Q. Who are your heroes?
Right now I'm absolutely in awe of Barack Obama.


Capirete cosa stanno facendo, su cosa sono concentrati, a cosa tengono...

Sono stati capaci di rivolgersi a tutti i differenti tipi di pubblico, a persone che hanno visto lo show e che non lo hanno mai visto, a persone a cui importa dello show.. è un thriller, un film di paura, penso nel rispetto delle persone a cui importa di queste cose, che saranno piacevolmente sorpresi..

[Scully] ha decisamente avuto un'evoluzione naturale, come vedrete nel film, ha perfettamente senso, questo combacia con come l'abbiamo lasciata nella serie.. Penso che il personaggio di Scully sia un personaggio così ammirabile, è forte, intelligente, e crede nel fare le cose nel modo giusto, crede nell'essere una brava persona, e sono tutti buoni comportamenti da avere.. è molto seria..

Penso ci fosse una dinamica, esterna alla serie, da cui ho tratto pieno vantaggio.. credo che la dinamica che c'è tra me e David quando lavoriamo sia abbastanza unica.. c'era molto affetto e senso di appartenenza che andava oltre il lavoro che credo siano state nascoste dagli autori a buon fine..

C'è un diverso livello di apprezzamento che entrambi abbiamo per la serie per cui abbiamo lavorato duramente per molto tempo, ed entrambi abbiamo avuto un'esperienza personale unica che nessun altro ha realmente avuto.. e tornare indietro assieme dopo tutto il tempo che è passato ci ha emozionato molto, era una scelta che stavamo facendo e di cui eravamo entusiasti.. era un modo abbastanza forte di cominciare qualcosa..

Penso che il pubblico si possa aspettare di saltare sulla sedia, credo sarà abbastanza pauroso.. credo ci sia qualcosa per tutti in questo film..

Chris ha sempre letto opere di molti generi diversi ed è costantemente in cerca di informazioni dai diversi percorsi della vita.. sa molto sulle cose che accadono nel mondo, continua sempre a scrivere, e credo sia incredibilmente creativo.. credo che ciò che mi ispira di più di Chris sia la sua calma e il suo rimanere calmo non importa quale follia stia accadendo intorno a lui, è consapevole e si estranea allo stesso tempo e questo rende il set un ambiente confortevole e questa cosa non accade certo tutte le volte.
Gillian’s Still a Bit Spacey

Gillian Anderson reprises her role as Agent Dana Scully in "The X-Files: I Want to Believe." She spoke to Ramin Setoodeh.

I've got to confess. I don't know anything about "The X-Files."

Why is it such a big deal?
Ohmygod. You're not going to do this to me, are you? Tell me you're not going to do this. Oh come on! It's been such a long time. Hire somebody that knows enough that we don't have to explain this again.

I saw the last movie, but I didn't watch all nine seasons.
I mean, nobody did. Did they? Yes. There are some people that did. But that's cool. I love running into people who have no idea what it's about.

Was it hard getting back into character?
It was a little odd. It was more disconcerting than I anticipated. I expected it to be a breeze. But I tried so hard since the series ended to do things as different as possible from the character. When I was faced with making acting decisions on that character again, my brain started backfiring and internally combusting.

You're a mom now. Do you travel with all your kids?
All my kids!? You make it sound like I have a bushel.

You've got two and another one coming. How far along are you?
About five and a half months. As I recall.

What else have you been up to lately?
I travel a lot and have bought and sold a lot of houses. I like doing up houses and getting into the architecture. I've spent a lot of time doing that in various places in the world.

Like where?
London, California, Canada. There's another country that I've just added that I'm not going to talk about because it's private. So that's four continents.

California and Canada are on the same continent.
It doesn't sound so special, then. Never mind. Your voice is actually very similar to Ben Affleck's voice. Has he ever told you that?

No. Are you sure?
Well, you probably wouldn't be able to tell. But if you were standing next to Ben, people would say, "Are you brothers?" Or maybe not standing next to, but talking next to and somebody else was behind a screen.

Can I use that as a pickup line?
You absolutely can. You have my permission.

A journalist said interviewing you is like wrestling a crocodile.
What does that mean? I have no idea.

Did you try to bite him?
