The Fall: Gillian Anderson on portraying an enigma

Gillian Anderson stars in BBC Two's new psychological crime thriller The Fall. As Detective Superintendent Stella Gibson, she is brought in from the Metropolitan Police by the Police Service of Northern Ireland to review a stalled murder investigation.

What compelled you to take the role of DSI Stella Gibson? She feels a little like an island but I find that interesting and it makes me want to know more, which is always a good thing where character and drama is concerned. Can you tell us a detail from the script where you felt a connection to Stella? It's hard to say. I am intrigued by her no-nonsense way of being. And that over time we get to see warmth and what she cares about. She is an enigma. What are the key factors behind Stella's professional decisions? I think she is professional and driven and has a mind for this kind of work and ... [Continua a leggere]

‘The X-Files’: Remembering mood and mystery of a sci-fi landmark

Three episodes from the landmark television series will screen as part of the fourth annual Hero Complex Film Festival.

PERSPECTIVE I came to “The X-Files,” which turns 20 this year, after its first season, and for a time I had no idea what was happening. This was a good way to watch a show whose greatest strength was its air of dreamlike mystery. Folded across the turn of the 21st-century, it was a millennial show for a millennial time, reflecting a popular preoccupation with apocalypse and messiahs, puzzling phenomena and unexplained mysteries, psychic surgeons and alien autopsies, random mutations and science gone too far. It was also, looking back on old episodes, a time of pay phones, answeri ... [Continua a leggere]

The Fall is one of the best BBC dramas in years

Devoting equal time to hunter and hunted, Gillian Anderson stars in this gripping psychological thriller

"Welcome to Belfast," sighs the assistant chief constable, grimacing apologetically as he hands DS Stella Gibson (Gillian Anderson) a bulging case file. "I've done 28-day reviews before, you know," she tuts, flicking regally through a wadge of blotchy mortuary snaps and false-lead suspect profiles. "Not here you haven't," continues Constable Roflz, scowling significantly out of the window. "Things are different here." He's not wrong. Things are different here. Very different. So different, in fact, are things in The Fall(Monday, 9pm, BBC2) that it's probably easier to list the things that it' ... [Continua a leggere]

Interview With X-Files Season 10 Joe Harris and Michael Walsh

In March, IDW announced that The X-Files would be returning with a tenth season in comic book form. Almost immediately, fans began speculating about what stories this new season would include; when would the stories be set? Would the show’s incredibly complex mythology be continued? Would “baby” William be involved? I spoke to series writer Joe Harris and illustrator Michael Walsh about some of their plans for Season 10, and the difficulties of bringing such an iconic, cult show back for a new season after more than ten years off air. What made you both decide to become invo ... [Continua a leggere]

The X-Files 20th Anniversary Blogging: ''Irresistible'' (January 13, 1995)

Chris Carter presents one of the darkest and most disturbing The X-Files episodes of the entire series catalog with his terrifying and relentless second season entry, “Irresistible.” Leaving behind the expected “fantasy” elements of the series such as aliens and monsters-of-the-week, the series creator, aided by director David Nutter, instead provides here a glimpse of the ultimate and most fearsome mystery: human evil. As a creative and intellectual series, The X-Files is a very Gothic enterprise. By and large, it concerns a voice of rationality and a voice of romanc ... [Continua a leggere]

Gillian is woman on a mission in new crime drama The Fall

Gillian Anderson made her name probing the paranormal, but in new crime drama The Fall, filmed on location in Belfast, she plays a detective hunting a serial killer. The actress tells ALBERTINA LLOYD why she took the part

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 (DavidDuchovny) 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 Scully ...

Gillian Anderson: intelligent life

Gillian Anderson is back playing detective but this time, she tells Julia Maile, her feet are firmly on the ground…

It seems churlish to introduce an actor of Gillian Anderson’s calibre by referring to her hair, but good grief, the woman has superb tresses. Her locks epitomise what we refer to in the Stylist offices as RPH – rich person’s hair – that perfect, bouncy blow wave sported by A-listers that we try to emulate, but rarely achieve. Impressive as it is, I’m not here today to talk about her styling. I’ve met 44-year-old Gillian at a London hotel to discuss her brilliant new five-part BBC2 thriller, The Fall, from the writer of Prime Suspect. Twenty years (that&rsquo ... [Continua a leggere]
