Roma Fiction Fest 2012: Gillian Anderson, l’intervista in esclusiva

La splendida Scully di X-Files è al Roma Fiction Fest per ritirare l’Excellence Award e per presentare la sua nuova serie, Great Expectations, adattamento BBC del classico dickensiano in cui interpreta Miss Havisham. Abbiamo parlato con lei del suo lavoro e delle prospettiva di una carriera.

Non ti guarda negli occhi, Gillian Anderson mentre la intervisti. Più che fredda, sembra timida, forse un po’ sfuggente, di sicuro stanca per i viaggi con cui sta promuovendo Great Expectations, nuovo adattamento BBC del classico di Dickens. Ma quando ti accorgi della lentezza suadente con cui parla, della luce che emanano occhi e sorriso, il ricordo dell’agente Scully e di altri personaggi di cui molti spettatori si sono innamorati è ancora vivo. Come ci si approccia approccia a un personaggio come Miss Havisham in Great Expectations e a lavorare con un colosso dell ... [Continua a leggere]

RomaFictionFest, ospite Gillian Anderson e le altre novità della nuova edizione

Ecco le prime indiscrezioni su cosa vedremo nella nuova edizione dell’evento dedicato alla fiction nostrana e internazionale

A quanto pare sia stato avvistato un U.F.O. nei pressi di Roma. Da quanto si dice sembra sia stata chiamata in causa, per risolvere il caso, addirittura l’agente Dana Scully. Scherzi a parte, in quel di Roma, secondo quanto riportato da Il Messaggero, sarà proprio Gillian Anderson, protagonista femminile di X-files, una delle star della nuova edizione del RomaFictionFest, che si svolgerà dal 30 settembre al 5 ottobre. L’attrice, in occasione del suo ritorno sul piccolo schermo nei panni di Miss Havisham in Great Expectations, sarà presente al festival per ritir ... [Continua a leggere]

Voyager #1

Gillian Anderson’s childhood was spent in Puerto Rico, the US and England. Since then she has never lived in any one place for more than four years. No wonder she’s so elusive…

It’s a frustrating business interviewing Gillian Anderson. She turns up bang on time and alone, no entourage. She’s intelligent, articulate and unexpectedly obliging: her agent had said a photo shoot was out of the question, but after our meeting Anderson gets in touch to say she’ll do one. In fact, I like her very much. All the same, she gives little away. In recent times she has made it clear to interviewers that she has no interest in talking about the phenomenally successful TV series that made her a household name, The X-Files. Fair enough: it’s 10 years sinc ... [Continua a leggere]

Mad woman

Gillian Anderson goes Gothic as Miss Havisham on ‘Great Expectations’

Anyone who remembers Gillian Anderson from her days as the attractive Dana Scully on “The X-Files” is in for quite a shock when they see her as Miss Havisham, the jilted bride of “Great Expectations” and one of Charles Dickens’ most unforgettable characters. Anderson is unrecognizable: She wears a tattered, yellowing wedding dress. Her hair, matted with unkempt ringlet curls, is the wreckage of an upswept “do.” Her skin, ghostly white, is marred by cracked lips. As played by Anderson, Havisham is in a state of decay as awful as the rotting English man ... [Continua a leggere]

Exclusive Interview: Gillian Anderson has GREAT EXPECTATIONS for PBS incarnation

The actress talks mad Miss Havisham, plus X-FILES

Charles Dickens’ novel GREAT EXPECTATIONS is considered one of the classics of Western literature. It has been adapted in many versions for stage, film and television. Now PBS is broadcasting its co-production with the BBC of a new miniseries adaptation of GREAT EXPECTATIONS in its Masterpiece Theatre Classic showcase, with one hour tonight at 9 PM and two hours next Sunday, also starting at 9 PM. For those unfamiliar with the story, financially disadvantaged nineteenth-century youth Pip (Douglas Booth) is bankrolled by a mysterious benefactor. He falls in love with the beautiful E ...

Interview Gillian Anderson

Great Expectations #1

Given the perpetual seriousness of Agent Dana Scully, it should have come as a surprise to no one when Gillian Anderson made the post-X-Files decision to step into deeper dramatic waters, appearing in a London production of Henrik Ibsen’s A Doll’s House as well as television adaptations of such literary fare as Charles Dickens’ Bleak House and Herman Melville’s Moby Dick. But appearing in Johnny English Reborn? Now that was unexpected. Anderson’s latest role, which finds her working closer to anticipated form, is Miss Havisham in Great Expectations, which airs on ...

Gillian Anderson recycles, stars in 'Great Expectations'

"In the area that I live in, in London, they have a great recycling scheme and also a great compost scheme — they collect and sell the compost and it gets recycled into other things. The money sustains the recycling," says Gillian Anderson, who has lived in England for a decade. Although she's still known best as "The X Files'" Dana Scully, Anderson has made several costume dramas for PBS' "Masterpiece," including "Bleak House," "Any Human Heart," and the latest, "Great Expectations," which casts her as the mysterious, manipulative, tragic Miss Havisham in the adaptation of Charles Dicke ...

Gillian Anderson on Great Expectations, Reading to the Royals, and Her Madonna-Like British Accent

PBS's long-running Masterpiece franchise is suddenly cool again, thanks to Downton Abbey, Sherlock, and some new dusted-off Dickens adaptations, the most recent of which features a ravishing Miss Havisham, played by Gillian Anderson. The British-American* actress, much beloved by American audiences for her stint as Dana Scully on The X-Files, previously portrayed Lady Dedlock in Bleak House. Now, for Great Expectations, she's a white-haired wonder who wears her moldering old wedding dress as a reminder of the long-ago day she was jilted at the altar. This adaptation is a salute to the bicenten ... [Continua a leggere]

Gillian Anderson on ‘X-Files,’ ‘Downton Abbey,’ ‘Great Expectations’

Gillian Anderson, famous for 'The X-Files,' stuns as Miss Havisham in Sunday’s 'Great Expecations.' She tells Jace Lacob about turning down 'Downton Abbey,' her British accent—and possibly playing Scully again.

Gillian Anderson is no stranger to strange worlds. The former star of The X-Files, which became a worldwide hit and spawned two feature films, Anderson has, for now anyway, traded in Dana Scully’s FBI-issued handgun and severe suits for the tight-laced corsets and flowing frocks of such period dramas as Bleak House, The House of Mirth, Tristram Shandy: A Cock and Bull Story, The Crimson Petal and the White, Moby Dick, and Any Human Heart, in which she played a deliciously conniving Wallace Simpson, complete with a false nose. But it’s Anderson’s jaw-dropping turn as Miss Hav ... [Continua a leggere]

Gillian Anderson on Tattoos, Family Meals, and Dealing with a Teenager

Gillian Anderson will never escape being Dana Scully, her paranormal-seeking character on The X-Files. “I met an Australian aboriginal shaman in Italy,” she recalls, “and he started with the fact that his wife was from another planet.” But the 43-year-old actress has moved on to more terrestrial pastures and is now playing the forlorn Miss Havisham in PBS Masterpiece’s Great Expectations (April 1 and 8, 9 p.m. ET; on DVD April 3). She tells Mary Margaret the three words that describe her best are “busy, stressed, and goofy.” PARADE Aren’t y ... [Continua a leggere]

The Double Life of Gillian Anderson

OUT #1

For nearly a decade, as Scully in the 'X-Files,' she was one of TV’s hottest commodities. Now, she’s remade herself in a series of demanding stage roles and smart TV dramas, such as the upcoming adaptation of 'Great Expectations.'

Photography by Roger Erickson Gillian Anderson remembers being struck by a magazine article in which a woman in her late forties escapes the constraints of marriage and motherhood for a solo vacation -- “to somewhere like Italy.” There, she finds herself at a dinner party among guests she does not know. “She decided that she wasn’t going to mention she had kids,” says Anderson in an accent that skitters pleasantly between British and American. “It was fascinating to read. It changes the energy of the conversation if people are talking about their kid ... [Continua a leggere]
