Gillian Anderson on playing a British detective in The Fall

Gillian Anderson plays a British detective hunting for a serial killer.

IN THE first episode of The Fall, Gillian Anderson’s police investigator Stella Gibbons is a woman on a mission. After spotting a handsome police officer she likes the look of, she demands to be introduced – and then purposefully tells him which hotel room she is staying in. It’s a far cry from prim FBI agent Dana Scully, who spent years in The X-Files refusing to get too close to her partner Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) before she finally gave in to her feelings. “When I’ve been asked about the differences between the two of them, suddenly it occurred to me that ...

Gillian Anderson comes down to earth

TO millions of fans, Gillian Anderson will always be alien investigator Dana Scully. But these days the former X-Files star is a London school-run mum - and she's joining the ranks of the terrestrial TV detectives

Let's put the truth out there: Gillian Anderson has never looked better. Dressed all in black, in tight jeans and a polo-neck jumper, she wears her hair scraped back in a ponytail that shows off flawless skin and those famous cheekbones. You'd never believe she was 44.She's relaxed, too, and instantly chatty, with no hint of the "spiky and serious" person she's claimed to be in the past. When she speaks - in the English accent she adopts on these shores - she's considered and thoughtful, but very aware of the clock and the minutes ticking away before she must leave to pick up her two youngest ...

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]

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.
