The X-Files: Gillian Anderson reveals regret at putting love first

As agent Dana Scully in The X-Files, her will-they-won’t they relationship with Fox Mulder kept viewers guessing for years.

But talking about her own private live, twice married Gillian Anderson has revealed her regret at putting love first. In an interview with next week’s Stella magazine, Anderson, 44, who has three children, said she would tell her eldest Piper, 18, to “make the most of your life before you start” - and to not to spend time following men. The actress was first cast as Scully, alongside David Duchovny as agent Fox Mulder, when she was 24. Before that, when she was 21, she followed a boyfriend to Los Angeles from New York. “I went to visit him and ende ... [Continua a leggere]

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 ...

The X-Files 20th Anniversary Blogging: ''One Breath'' (November 11, 1994)

“One Breath” vividly diagrams the boundaries separating life from death, as well as Dana Scully’s “near death experience” at the shore-line between those states of existence. Gratifyingly, the episode provides resonant visuals to embody this strange “border land.” Indeed, many of the episode’s images -- from the opening scene involving Scully’s childhood, to her journey to a long, white tunnel of memory -- prove unforgettable. This episode from early in The X-Files’ second season also continues to chart Mulder’s emotional and ... [Continua a leggere]

Bryan Fuller interview: Hannibal, elegant horror, Gillian Anderson, & more…

We chat to Bryan Fuller about Hannibal, emulsifying human eyeballs, Lucifer, and elegant vs. exploitation horror…

I have a confession to make. Not one that reflects well on me, but one that bears airing as proof that Hannibal’s Bryan Fuller is a gentleman, a scholar, and - why not - an acrobat. In the window of Covent Garden’s The Hospital Club, the chic venue for our chat with Star Trek: Voyager, Dead Like Me, Wonderfalls, and Pushing Daisies writer Bryan Fuller, is a sculpture called Gold Digga. A pair of gilded deer antlers atop a glittery Mondrian painting, it’s a piece about the commodification of art, but to someone – me – fresh from watching episode one of Hannibal, i ...

Duchovny, Fichtner join The Last Full Measure

David Duchovny is the latest actor said to be associated with the long-gestating Pararescueman drama “The Last Full Measure”. The film, which also has Andy Garcia, Robert Duvall, Laurence Fishburne and Morgan Freeman attached, reunites Duchovny with his “Phantom” writer/director Todd Robinson. Robinson, speaking about the film’s lengthy delays in an interview with Zap2it, said Duchovny and another “Phantom” star William Fichtner have agreed to partake in the film. Robinson says, despite the delays, “Last Full Measure” is expected to film ... [Continua a leggere]

The X-Files 20th Anniversary Blogging: ''3'' (November 4, 1994)

The second season episode “3” has never been particularly well-regarded by fans of The X-Files, and there are reasons that support this point-of-view. For instance, this is an episode where Mulder works alone, and Scully is nowhere to be found, thus flouting conventional formula. And, shippers may be disappointed or angry because Mulder experiences a sexual liaison with a woman in the story who is not Scully. Indeed a certain percentage of the hostility aimed at “3” apparently revolves around Mulder having intimate relations with another woman. Some fans consider thi ... [Continua a leggere]

Gillian Anderson aims to be new Helen Mirren as new murder-solving sleuth in BBC2's The Fall

TV bosses expect it to cash in on the success of ITV’s Broadchurch which pulled nine million viewers in its final episode

Gillian Anderson says she can replace Helen Mirren as a new queen of the TV thriller in a BBC drama she thinks is the next Prime Suspect. The X Files star, 44, is convinced her character Detective Superintendent Stella Gibson in The Fall will be on screen for years to come and could cash in on viewers love of murder series’ following the huge success of Broadchurch. The final of Broadchurch drew over nine million viewers on ITV and many of them will enjoy watching Stella track down a serial killer next month on BBC2. Speaking about the tense new drama, Gillian said: “I have al ... [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. The X-Files star plays Detective Superintendent Stella Gibson in the new BBC crime drama about a serial killer, played by model and actor Jamie Dornan. 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]

The X-Files 20th Anniversary Blogging: ''Duane Barry'' / ''Ascension''

The X-Files first great two-part episode, “Duane Barry”/”Ascension” plays a lot like a 1990s action thriller, with a tense opening act involving a hostage negotiation, and a final act that gets down to business with picturesque locations, and impressive physical stunts. That description, however, only begins to scratch the surface of this two-part epic, a legitimate X-Files classic. This is also the story-line, for instance, that forwards significantly the series’ ongoing subplot about alien abduction (first introduced in the pilot), and ends on a cliffhanger in ...

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]

Exclusive: Gillian Anderson talks role on NBC’s ''HANNIBAL''

HANNIBAL, the new NBC series that premiered last night to positive reviews, is about as dark as network TV gets. The series, written by Bryan Fuller and whose pilot was directed by David Slade (HARD CANDY, 30 DAYS OF NIGHT), takes Thomas Harris’ iconic star of book and film, Dr. Hannibal Lecter (here played by Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen) and unfolds his pre-RED DRAGON life over an entire season (if the show does well, maybe a few seasons), aiding FBI profiler Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) as he hunts serial killers while the good doc himself is quietly killing and consuming even more victims ...

The X-Files 20th Anniversary Blogging: ''The Host'' (September 23, 1994)

When I reviewed “The Erlenmeyer Flask” a few weeks ago, I discussed the notion of the alien corpse or “wellspring” as a kind of Pandora’s Box. Use of the alien corpse’s DNA in scientific experimentation would mean -- in the universe of The X-Files --a brave new world, one with infinite variations, and infinite capacity for good and evil applications. Chris Carter’s episode “The Host” also involves, at least implicitly, a Pandora’s Box of another brand. In “The Host,” Mulder and Scully investigate a strange mutant spawned ... [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]
