'Life is short. Follow your heart'

Her career may seem endless, but Gillian Anderson isn't taking anything for granted. Here, she muses on ageing, sexism and her current co-star, a certain Jamie 'Fifty Shades' Dornan.

Gillian Anderson's six-year-old son Felix recently walked into a room in their Wiltshire home carrying a box-set of The X-Files he had found. 'He pointed at it and said, "Is that you?" and I said, "Yeah", 'Anderson recalls. 'He was like, "Oh" and put it back in the drawer.'She laughs, delighted by the fact her son could be so unimpressed by the television phenomenon that made hers mother a star in the 199os. These days, Anderson, 46, is no longer defined by her nine-year stint as special agent Dana Scully on the sci-fi series. Since her glorious turn as DSl Stella Gibson in the BBC's hit crime ...

'The X-Files' -- 1993-2002

EW Reunions #1

David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson, and creator Chris Carter reminisce about the genesis of the sci-fi series

“THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE”. So promised The X-Files, the groundbreaking sci-fi saga that debuted 20 years ago this fall. But the maxim that appears in the show’s credits- the mantra of questing FBI agents Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson)- was supposed to be something else. Creator Chris Carter forgets the original phrase, but he remembers that it wasn’t good. With time running out, and Carter hating the entire cretits sequence in general, the producer began brainstorming ideas for images (germinating seeds, a man’s morphing face) and wo ...

David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson Up for Third X-Files Movie

For X-Files fans, a trilogy is out there—all they need is a green light. Appearing Saturday at a Paley Center for Media event in New York City to mark the sci-fi horror drama's 20th anniversary, David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson told attendees they hope to reprise their roles as Mulder and Scully in a third X-Files movie. "All the principals are on board," Duchovny said, as quoted by the Los Angeles Times. "Gillian and I want to do it, so it's really up to 20th Century Fox at this point." X-Files mastermind Chris Carter is also down for a third go-round, according to the 53-year-old ... [Continua a leggere]

An Alien Anniversary

David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson on the "X-Files," 20 years later

Twenty years ago, a handful of American households with no better plans on a Friday night gathered to watch a strange, sinister new show with unknown actors and an unsettling premise. In those first months, The X-Files felt like a secret. Its slight ratings belied the emotions it stirred, bonding viewers with an almost chemical addition. In the days before DVR, the show became a ritual in families. And then, as it slipped somehow past the cancellation wardens and survived into a second season, it became a phenomenon. So perhaps it isn't a surprise that even 20 years later, a reunion between ... [Continua a leggere]

La saga di X-Files può ricominciare

Lo sceneggiatore Spotnitz: "Il terzo film sulla serie sarà il più bello"

«Il terzo film di X-Files sarà la cosa più bella che abbiamo mai fatto»: lo sceneggiatore Frank Spotnitz, insignito dell’Excellence Award al RFF, lo ha promesso al fanclub italiano Beyond the Sea. Lo ha progettato con il creatore Chris Carter, a 20 anni dal primo episodio, dopo 9 stagioni tv e 2 pellicole. «Desidero da tanto continuare la saga, anche perché il momento più elettrizzante è stato il giro dei cinema in pullman alla premiere del primo film. Ho sbirciato il pubblico in sala da una stanza segreta del Chinese Theatre a Hollyw ... [Continua a leggere]

Anderson aspires to be new Tennison

Gillian Anderson revealed she has been looking for a series like The Fall

Gillian Anderson has revealed she has always wanted to play a character like Prime Suspect's Jane Tennison, and feels she has found that in new drama The Fall.

In an unusual twist, the suspense thriller reveals Jamie's character to be the murderer from the beginning, and the audience follow his dual life as a father and husband by day and psychopath by night. The story also follows Gillian's character's investigation into a series of murders. ... [Continua a leggere]

Let's Celebrate

From impromptu picnics to pagan cerimonies, four famous faces tell Carrie Mitchell how they mark special moments in their lives

Actress Gillian Anderson, 44, lives in East London with her daughter Piper, 18, from her first marriage, and her sons, Oscar, six, and Felix, four, from her past relationship with business man Mark Griffiths. I realized a few years ago that I didn’t honour special moments enough. The X-Files was a popular show, and there was a period when we just kept getting nominated for awards. But it was too much for me to take in, and I remember sitting at award ceremonies with this frozen smile on my face, just feeling like a mannequin. Nowadays, I’m far more appreciative of things such as ... [Continua a leggere]

''Did you really say that? I'm shocked''

Andrew Duncan has a rough-and-tumble interview with Gillian Anderson - star of new BBC2 drama The Fall - and rather enjoys it. Sort of.

My encounter with Gillian Anderson is a lively joust - with a constantly uncertain outcome. She arrives, punctual to the second, at the London hotel where we rneet, unencumbered by that ubiquitous and stultifying accoutrement of fame - the agent or PR person. But during our interview there will be a few times when I fear she might throw her glass of water over me and walk out. At 44, the acclaimed actress is a gorgeus, petite, blonde bundle of contradictions, warm yet reticent. One moment she's friendly, guileless, almost girlie; the next, edgy and suspicious. She says the problem is that it's ... [Continua a leggere]

Portrait of a lady

Gillian Anderson is an interested woman - books, history, and heroines. She'd debate the word "lady", though.

Do you think the definition of what it means to be a lady has changed? How would you define it? I don't know if I would be so bold as to define it. I think that there are more examples of women being allowed to be complicated in popular culture, which is where we end up getting our cues as to how it's OK to be in society. It feels like, even though there seem to be attempts to drag us backwards in the political realm, in the cultural realm it feels like [progress]. We're seeing examples of complex, more interesting and less two-dimensional women. I'm talking about women, not ladies - ... [Continua a leggere]

Psychologies - Aprile 2013

The award-winning actress talks about life, death and her most challenging year yet

We're sitting in a hotel restaurant in London. Gillian Anderson has been on PsychoIogies' cover twice before but we've personally never met, though anyone watching us - the kisses she greets me with, the relaxed way she wants to know how things are in my life - would be forgiven for thinking we had.The last time we spoke to the 44-year-old, Chicago-born actress was two years ago, and things were very different for her than they are today. Then she seemed happy with long-term partner Mark Griffiths, with whom she has two young sons. But within a matter of months they would separate, and her you ... [Continua a leggere]

Back on the case

Gillian Anderson plays an enigmatic detective in BBC's suspenceful new mini-series The Fall

On the wall of the Zetter hotel in Clerkenwell is a rnonochrorne painting of a pale, raven-haired woman. She is wearing a corseted ballgown that becomes, from the waist down, an elaboratebird cage.Staring darkly out at the viewer, she holds a dagger aloft. I tell Gillian Anderson - who sits in front of the painting, slight blonde, in black jeans and a blue silk shirt - that the woman strikes rne as exactly the kind of tormented part she would play. 'You're absolutely right,' she says, beaming.The gulf between Anderson, 44. and the characters she portrays on-screen verges on comic. She is cele ... [Continua a leggere]

X-Files 20th Anniversary Blogging: "Pilot" (September 10, 1993)

The X-Files first episode, “Pilot” written by Chris Carter and directed by Robert Mandel, remains a strong introduction to this classic horror/sci-fi series. The inaugural installment not only presents an intriguing mystery and introduces audiences to engaging characters caught up in life-changing events, it also presents a first and ominous peek at the dark forces aligned against the protagonists, and against “the truth” itself. But even better, the X-Files “Pilot” is skillful in the manner by which it deploys (and co-opts) horror imagery or symbolism. I a ... [Continua a leggere]
