Change agent

A far cry from the cool Dana Scully who made her famous, Gillian Anderson speaks with Michael Lallo about her new film, her transatlantic upbringing and how acting saved her.

Gillian Anderson was backstage at Wembley Stadium, waiting to address the crowd at a memorial concert for Diana, when Victoria Beckham walked past. Having noticed that Beckham's collar was up, she reached out and flattened it, thinking she was doing the fashion-conscious Posh a favour. ''And you should have seen the look she shot me,'' Anderson laughs, burying her face in her hands. ''Other than the fact I destroyed her look, I also freaked her out because I did it from behind. Now, I try not to be helpful any more, especially where fashion is concerned.'' Sitting by a top-floor w ... [Continua a leggere]

The jest files

Sunday Herald Sun

DRAMA and thrills have left Gillian Anderson with a taste for comedy. GILLIAN Anderson shot to fame as Special Agent Dana Scully over nine seasons of The X-Files. Since leaving the cult sci-fi hit nearly 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' 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 childre ... [Continua a leggere]

Interview: "Strike Back" Co-Executive Producer Frank Spotnitz

With the ever-changing world of American television getting more complicated and competitive, one prolific American writer/producer has up and moved across the pond and is now producing television in the United Kingdom where things are done quite a bit differently than in the States. Frank Spotnitz, best known for his work during the majority of the television run of "The X-Files" and co-writer of the two big-screen versions, saw the differences in the way the two countries produce television to be so enticing that he's been living in London since last summer with his family. First, h ... [Continua a leggere]

Interview with Gillian Anderson

While her most famous role involved chasing aliens and government conspiracies with David Duchovny on “The X-Files,” Gillian Anderson has kept busy over the years with other projects. Her latest casts her as the long-suffering wife of Captain Ahab as he obsessively tracks down the whale that maimed him in Encore’s re-imagining of “Moby Dick” in a 2-part mini series that premieres Aug 1. Anderson sat down with CableFAX’s Michael Grebb at TCA in L.A. to discuss the role, her X-Files legacy and of course how we can start a campaign to get her a guest spot on Showtime’s “Californication.”

CableFAX: First of all, what drew you to this role?   Anderson: William Hurt was already attached, and they were in discussions with Ethan Hawke. That fact alone intrigued me. I think if they had not been attached, I might not have read the script. Then there was the script itself. I had not read the novel before. I couldn’t relate it to anything, so I didn’t know if it was a good adaptation of the actual novel. But I liked the script. I liked the story. I felt like I understood the character. And I thought it might be fun to perform it.   CableFAX: It’s ... [Continua a leggere]

A chat with Gillian Anderson

Although arguably best known for the time she’s spent playing Agent Dana Scully on “The X-Files,” Gillian Anderson has also found a home in numerous period pieces and literary adaptations over the years, from Charles Dickens’ “Bleak House” to Edith Wharton’s “The House of Mirth.” Now, she’s taking on Herman Melville, thanks to a small but pivotal part of Starz’s “Moby Dick,” where she plays Captain Ahab’s wife, Elizabeth. Bullz-Eye talked to Anderson during the summer 2011 TCA Press Tour and got a bit of insight into her character (who – we have been led to understand – has never before appeared in a film or TV adaptation of the novel), but we also checked in on the status of the next “X-Files” film as well as what we can expect from her in the upcoming “Johnny English Reborn.”

Bullz-Eye: How familiar were you with the original Moby Dick novel before you took this gig? Gillian Anderson: I wasn’t. I started reading it once I agreed to do the job…and got about ¾ of the way through. And at some point in my life, I’d like to finish it, but it, uh, hasn’t been at the top of my books-to-read-list. (Laughs) BE: During the panel, you said you’ve got about five minutes of screen time in the production. Seriously? GA: (Laughs) No, I’m in it a bit more than that. BE: Out of curiosity, were you aware that Melville’s wife& ... [Continua a leggere]

Falling Skies – Alieni invasori in tv (parte 1)

Continuiamo a prepararci per l’arrivo degli alieni invasori di Falling Skies ricordando insieme i loro predecessori…

Così, dopo aver visto brevemente alcune delle caratteristiche principali dei film di fantascienza e aver ricordato insieme alcune delle pellicole e delle serie più significative, ci siamo. Arriviamo finalmente alla categoria “alieni invasori”. La categoria di Falling Skies. La storia delle invasioni aliene sul piccolo schermo è più lunga e nutrita di quanto si pensi: sono moltissimi i titoli che, in un modo o nell’altro, parlano di extraterrestri che arrivano ad invadere il pianeta (magari sotto mentite spoglie di “amicizia intergalattica&rdq ...

Scully, che nostalgia!

Nostalgia canaglia: le repliche di X-Files sui canali Sky ci riportano indietro. Scully. La chiamiamo tutti così, per nome, come tutte le migliori eroine del filone poliziesco, perché il nome è troppo confidenziale, e comunque il suo compagno di sempre la chiama per cognome, non "Dana". Questo lo sappiamo perché li abbiamo visti attraversare insieme sette stagioni e spiccioli. Nelle ultime due lui non c'era, lei sì, e forse per questo - oltre che per gli ovvi motivi di identificazione di genere - quando pensiamo a X-Files pensiamo a lei. O almeno ci penso io ...

Truth, Trust and the Magic of Mulder & Scully

13 Questions for X-Files Writer and Producer Frank Spotnitz

Hardly any other series left such a profound impression on the 90s like the sci-fi cult show The X-Files. Not only did it win an incredible amount of awards, attracted a huge fan following and led to two movies, but it also influenced the way stories are told on the small and the big screen. Even today many shows continue to cite The X-Files in one way or another: Be it LOST, Bones, House M.D. or Fringe – just take your pick. And if everything goes according to plan and the optimism of many fans, a third movie should hit screens next year – after all the complex mythology about a ... [Continua a leggere]

From the X-Files to X-rated

Radio Times #1

Fame came early to Gillian Anderson, but this Hollywood émigrée is happier as a Victorian madam than she was as a sci-fi pin-up

It’s a cold, wet, early morning on “Blue Monday", supposedly the most depressing day of the year, at a photographic studio in a cul de sac next to a decrepit garage in Dalston, east London, and I'm awaiting the arrival of a 5ft 3in, twice married mother of three, a once world-famous television star whose conversation has been likened to “wrestling with a crocodile". Oh dear. She’s also posed in knickers for a lads’ mag, been voted the world’s sexiest woman, won an Olivier nomination for her performance as Nora in Ibsen’s The Doll's House, and a Bafta n ...

The 'X' factor

Los Angeles Times, 17 Marzo 2011

The work of Scully and Mulder remains influential. Six Flms being released this season exhibit shades of 'The X Files.'

There's a strange confluence of sciencefiction movies being released this season - six otherwordly films in six weeks. What's behind this phenomenon? A little investigation shows that although TV's "The X-Files" went off the air in 2002, the truth may be still out there - and we're not just talking about the flashlights and lab coats inherited by Fox's "Fringe." These half-dozen films might all be filed under X in one way or another. Consider:"The Adjustment Bureau"(March 4) The mysterious puppet-master of this well reviewed sci-fi/thriller quietly tend to the course of human history and ... [Continua a leggere]

'X' man's evolution

David Duchovny talks marriage, regret and how he’s put the past behind him

Talk about moving out of your comfort zone. For his stage debut, David Duchovny chose Neil LaBute’s “The Break of Noon” — which features the former FBI Special Agent Fox Mulder in every scene of its intermissionless run. “It’s an hour and 35 minutes of me, pretty much,” Duchovny tells The Post. “Nobody can stand much more than that.” The boyish-looking 50-year-old grew up in Manhattan. He graduated from Princeton University and was well on his way to a doctorate in English lit from Yale when he started acting. After “The X-Fil ... [Continua a leggere]

X-Files - L’inizio del mito

Su FX torna la prima stagione di X-Files, con gli episodi che hanno trasformato le gesta di due agenti dell’FBI in un pezzo di storia della tv

“Generazione X”: una definizione molto sfruttata. Ma se c’è un caso che si presta perfettamente a tale definizione, è questo: il caso di X-Files. I telespettatori che hanno avuto la fortuna di conoscere questa serie al suo arrivo in Italia appartengono alla generazione X. Quelli che non hanno avuto questa fortuna possono recuperare: dal 6 ottobre FX ripropone le prime, indimenticabili avventure di Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) e Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson). E per noi fans di vecchia data… Repetita iuvant. La storia ormai è nota: Chris Carter, r ... [Continua a leggere]

David Duchovny lives a new, calmer life after trying times

LOS ANGELES — David Duchovny says he's a changed man. "I'm filled with humility and gratitude," says the actor, who shot to fame on The X Files before being treated for sex addiction in 2008. "Before, I was focused on winning and deserving. I would say, 'Oh, I deserve that.' That's not grateful. Grateful is, 'Wow. I'm lucky. That's fantastic.' " Duchovny, who turns 50 in August, is sitting in a West Hollywood hotel suite discussing his new film, The Joneses (in theaters Friday). He plays Demi Moore's fake husband in this romantic comedy/biting satire about stealth marketing. As he d ... [Continua a leggere]

David Duchovny Would 'Love' To Make A Third 'X-Files' Film

'I am so proud of that franchise,' he tells MTV News.

BEVERLY HILLS — In his new movie "The Joneses," David Duchovny plays a salesman given a cushy (if somewhat unethical) job: He and his phony "family" move into a posh neighborhood and make everyone jealous of their toys, causing them to buy products that line the pockets of his employers. Several scenes talk about the so-called "ripple effect," something with which Duchovny is intimately familiar. Nearly a decade after the show that made him famous went off the air, Duchovny's work on "The X-Files" is still sending ripples all over the world. And with that in mind, the veteran act ...
