How to Spot The X-Files in Homeland, Breaking Bad, and American Horror Story

A woman weeps when she discovers the husband she thought died years ago in combat overseas is actually alive; she has mourned him and remarried. What now? A female agent weaves her way through a crowd at a political rally, desperately tracking an ex-soldier she thinks is about to open fire on government and military officials. A veteran, disillusioned with the military (which he believes betrayed him), hides in plain sight while planning a series a high-level assassinations. It sure sounds like Homeland. But those are scenes from "Unrequited," a season-four episode of The X-Files &m ... [Continua a leggere]

The Best Fictional Scientists From TV and Movies

IWTB Photoshoot - 2

Agent Dana Scully, The X-Files

If ever there was a set up on television of the clash between science and faith, it was The X-Files. Agent Fox Mulder was driven by his unflappable faith that extraterrestrials were real, and his sister was abducted by aliens -- and all of this was covered up by the government. He was a rogue agent who didn’t need any scientific proof to follow his mission. Agent Dana Scully, on the other hand, was assigned to be Mulder’s partner to debunk his paranormal work in The X-Files. She was a scientist and was always looking for the facts of a situation and the most logical, scient ... [Continua a leggere]

A chat with actress Gillian Anderson

JER Premiere #17

The 43-year-old mother of three shares her experiences starring in The X-Files and Johnny English Reborn

Gillian Anderson is best known for playing straight-laced Dana Scully in The X-Files and also starred as MI7 agent Pamela Thornton (code-named Pegasus) in Johnny English Reborn. The Chicago born actress has three children: Piper, Oscar and Felix. She shares her experience starring in the X-Files and Johnny English Reborn: After starring in The X-Files, you must be an expert on the inner workings of the FBI. Were you able to transfer this to the British Secret Service? You’d think! I don’t know, it’s so hard to know what one uses for what. I have to imagine ... [Continua a leggere]

Gillian Anderson: 'When he was just 30, my brother was prepared to die’

Great Expectations #5

Actress Gillian Anderson talks about love, the loss of a sibling and the challenge of playing Miss Havisham.

Gillian Anderson has a tattoo on her right wrist that is in Sanskrit, and when I ask her what it means she tells me, laughing, that its rough translation is “none of your business”. Anderson is a curious mix of cautious and carefree, clamming up about some skin ink yet talking openly about her brother, Aaron, who died three months ago of a brain tumour. He was just 30. I remark, rather obviously, that it must have been a tough year. “Well, there’s certainly been a lot happening this year. But I feel like I’ve learnt. I feel like I’ve c ... [Continua a leggere]

The Saturday interview: Gillian Anderson

The Guardian

Gillian Anderson was cast as Dana Scully in The X-Files at 24, but since then she has specialised in tragic heroines. She next appears, bald and on fire, as the youngest-ever Miss Havisham

'You've changed," I tell Gillian Anderson. In 1996, she was chosen as the world's sexiest woman by FHM magazine's readers; this Christmas she will be bald and on fire as Miss Havisham in the BBC's adaptation of Great Expectations. So what made her take this role? Anderson bristles: "That's not really a serious question, is it? The real question is, 'How the fuck did I end up as the world's sexiest woman in 1996?' – not why would I do Great Expectations. Any actor would want to do Great Expectations. I never set out to be the world's sexiest woman." No doubt. In any case, ... [Continua a leggere]

TAEM interview with actor William B. Davis

TAEM- The Arts and Entertainment Magazine is highly honored to be able to present actor William B. Davis to all of our readers. William has had a long and outstanding career in television, theater and film, and is best known as ‘The Cigarette Man’ in the popular television series, ‘X-Files’.

TAEM- William, your latest endeavor involves the memoirs that you have written. Please tell us about the book, it’s publisher, and where our readership can find it. WBD-The book is called ‘Where There’s Smoke …. The Musings of a Cigarette Smoking Man’, and frankly, it’s the story of my life.

People will have different interests – whether it’s the history or ... [Continua a leggere]

Gillian Anderson: From pop culture icon to costume drama queen

Gillian Anderson recently sat down with Gold Derby to talk about two of her latest projects, PBS' "Masterpiece" miniseries "Any Human Heart" co-starring Matthew MacFadyen and Tom Hollander, and the Encore miniseries "Moby Dick" win which she stars alongside William Hurt, Ethan Hawke and Donald Sutherland. Both programs are strong contenders for nominations at the upcoming Golden Globes and Screen Actors Guild Awards. In "Moby Dick," a re-imagining of the Herman Melville classic, Gillian plays Captain Ahab's heretofore little known wife Elizabeth, who until now has been little more than a foo ...

Chi ****o è questo tipo? E' David Duchovny

Dopo averlo seguito nella leggendaria serie X-Files e nella controversa Californication, lo abbiamo ben identificato. Di seguito, una intervista esclusiva per Esquire.

Questa intervista è stata una specie di appuntamento con accompagnatore. Appuntamento professionale e a lunga distanza, è chiaro. Ma si può conoscere molto di più di una persona anche se lo si conosce sotto sorveglianza. Ed il carisma di David Duchovny supera di gran lunga la fragile connessione telefonica e la supervisione del suo agente, che, prima di cominciare, mi ha avvertito che l’attore di X-Files e Californication non avrebbe risposto a nessuna domanda sulla sua vita privata, sulla sua ex moglie, né a niente del genere.Dopo avergli assicu ...

Gillian Anderson Moves From Timeless Dramas to Broad Comedy

Gillian Anderson has battled alien invaders, faced shadowy conspiracies, and played some of the most memorable women in literature. So, what intimidates her? Watching herself onscreen. "The first time I see something I'm in, it's very hard for me," she admits. "I've got one thing on my mind and one thing only: picking apart my performance." Fortunately, she recently had a second chance to see her new comedy, "Johnny English Reborn," and was able to enjoy it much more this time around. As the single-minded agent brought in to revamp MI-7, Anderson's character brings the bumbling secret agent Jo ... [Continua a leggere]

Switching off the spotlight

Having tea with Gillian Anderson is a thoroughly pleasant business — a splash of muted glamour in a fairly drab London autumn. I thoroughly recommend it, as a more engaging companion it would be a challenge to find. We meet in the studiously bijou surroundings of the Zetter Townhouse in St John’s Square, chosen, I suspect, because no one there has the slightest clue who she is. She is wearing the no-make-up disguise, and glides serenely under London’s radar, something she clearly enjoys. She is a tad jetlagged, she says, having just arrived home from a three-week s ...

Are 20th Century Fox Close To Greenlighting A Third X-Files Film?

Thanks to a dedicated fan campaign, are Fox close to ordering a third feature film adaptation of The X-Files?

In July 2008, 20th Century Fox released The X-Files: I Want To Believe, the second feature film adaptation of Fox’s long running science fiction television series. The film, which was received poorly in the United States, tanked at the box office; bringing in only 21 million dollars, domestically. Despite that, rumours have persisted that a third X-Files film was in development. What’s the real story, are Fox really interested in producing a third film? Is the truth out there? The X-Files First a little background. The series was created by Chris Carter and ran on the Fox ... [Continua a leggere]

Something funny happened to Scully

NOT SO SERIOUS: "People don't know that I can do funny," says former X-Files star Gillian Anderson.

Playing the boss of a government intelligence agency might be considered a step up for American actress Gillian Anderson. After all, she spent nine years protecting the population from supernatural terrors and exposing sinister conspiracies as FBI agent Dana Scully in cult 1990s television series The X-Files, but never got a single promotion. She never even got her own office. In her new film, Johnny English Reborn, the sequel to the 2003 spy spoof starring comedian Rowan Atkinson as the bungling titular agent, she is the head of Britain's MI7 and has a top-floor office suite. An ... [Continua a leggere]

Chris Carter torna in tv con Unique (e forse al cinema con un terzo capitolo di X Files)

Chris Carter torna in tv: l’autore di X Files è da anni corteggiato dai network broadcast e via cavo e da Hollywood, ma si è preso alcuni anni sabbatici (film di X Files esclusi) finché nei giorni scorsi non è riemerso con Unique, un thriller poliziesco tutto al femminile e con elementi sovrannaturali e molta azione che non ha ancora un network televisivo e in cui non è chiaro quanto Carter sia poi coinvolto visto che pare X Files potrebbe tornare al cinema con un terzo capitolo.

Chris Carter è stato produttore di vari progetti seriali – perlopiù sconosciuti in Italia e probabilmente pure negli States – finché, nel 1993, non creò X Files, serie con protagonisti David Duchovny e Gillian Anderson andata in onda per 9 anni che aiutò FOX a posizionarsi tra i grandi network, ma soprattutto che la elesse quale luogo di una tv di qualità e che amava osare. E X Files – che a distanza di vent’anni dalla sua messa in onda e a dieci dalla fine vanta ancora uno stuolo di fan adoranti, milioni di dvd venduti e un ... [Continua a leggere]

She's a shape-shifter

Gillian Anderson a Melbourne

COMEDY is far from alien to Gillian Anderson, the former X-Files star who is in Australia to promote her latest film with master funnyman Rowan Atkinson

Since leaving the cult sci-fi hit almost a decade ago, the Emmy and Golden Globe winning actor has shifted effortlessly between the stage (she was nominated for an Olivier award for her West End role in Ibsen's A Doll's House), TV (nominated for a BAFTA for Lady Dedlock in Dickens's Bleak House) and film (two X-Files films, and The Last King of Scotland). The US-born, England-raised actor lives in London with her three children and partner, Mark Griffiths. She visited Australia with co-star Rowan Atkinson this week to promote their film, James Bond spoof Johnny English Reborn. Q: Wha ... [Continua a leggere]

Gillian Anderson - interview

I'm a lifelong X-Files fan. This is emotion I had to suppress, rather violently, when I was sent to interview Gillian Anderson in a private hotel room on the 24th floor of… alright, you know what? I was freaking out. When I got there I was ferried into an immaculate room, in which two easels bore enormous posters for Johnny English Reborn, the film in which Anderson plays Pegasus, a Judi Dench-type character, and English's boss. Incidentally, I have unbelievable trouble separating character from actor, and given that I get very attached to my heroes, if she'd been unpleasant, it ... [Continua a leggere]
