What the Dickens! Agent Scully to play a 'sexually charged' Miss Havisham

Gillian Anderson is to star as a ‘sexually charged and alluring’ Miss Havisham in a radical television reworking of Charles Dickens’s classic Great Expectations.

The former X Files beauty is in talks to co-star in the three-part BBC1 drama which The Mail on Sunday can reveal will feature Hollywood hardman Ray Winstone as Magwitch and rising star Douglas Booth as Pip. The BBC is planning what it calls the most ‘visceral’ adaptation of the novel yet in an effort to win over a generation of viewers unfamiliar with the original. It will remain faithful to Dickens’s story, but key characters and situations will be redrawn to give them a  ‘contemporary buzz’. Sarah Phelps, the acclaimed writer behind the new versi ...

Gillian Anderson makes memorable speech at BAFTA Awards (video)

Whenever you watch an awards show, this is exactly what you want to see -- someone not only accepting defeat with joy, but having a good laugh about it in the process. At the 2011 BAFTA Awards, Gillian Anderson (best known to American audiences for playing Scully on "The X-Files") was presenting an award for Best Actor in a Comedy after she ended up losing an award in her own category. The end result? Hilarity. First, she decided to give a shout-out to her designer -- who also happens to be her friend. Then, she preceded to poke fun at herself for losing the award. Finally, she clos ... [Continua a leggere]

Scully, che nostalgia!

Nostalgia canaglia: le repliche di X-Files sui canali Sky ci riportano indietro. Scully. La chiamiamo tutti così, per nome, come tutte le migliori eroine del filone poliziesco, perché il nome è troppo confidenziale, e comunque il suo compagno di sempre la chiama per cognome, non "Dana". Questo lo sappiamo perché li abbiamo visti attraversare insieme sette stagioni e spiccioli. Nelle ultime due lui non c'era, lei sì, e forse per questo - oltre che per gli ovvi motivi di identificazione di genere - quando pensiamo a X-Files pensiamo a lei. O almeno ci penso io ...

Truth, Trust and the Magic of Mulder & Scully

13 Questions for X-Files Writer and Producer Frank Spotnitz

Hardly any other series left such a profound impression on the 90s like the sci-fi cult show The X-Files. Not only did it win an incredible amount of awards, attracted a huge fan following and led to two movies, but it also influenced the way stories are told on the small and the big screen. Even today many shows continue to cite The X-Files in one way or another: Be it LOST, Bones, House M.D. or Fringe – just take your pick. And if everything goes according to plan and the optimism of many fans, a third movie should hit screens next year – after all the complex mythology about a ... [Continua a leggere]

My best things in life...

Red Magazine


BEST CITY: London. I love everything about it - the weather, the architecture, the theatres, its international film community, its multiculturalism, its green spaces, its attitude and its proximity to the rest of the world. BEST CO-STAR: It's terrible to have to narrow it down, but I'll say Donald Sutherland, my co-star in Moby Dick. We had only one scene together, where he gave a long sermon to a crowd and my character interrupts him. It was enough for him to win my heart between every take with his charm, his intimate accounts of experience in the business and his undying love for his wife. ... [Continua a leggere]

From the X-Files to X-rated

Radio Times #1

Fame came early to Gillian Anderson, but this Hollywood émigrée is happier as a Victorian madam than she was as a sci-fi pin-up

It’s a cold, wet, early morning on “Blue Monday", supposedly the most depressing day of the year, at a photographic studio in a cul de sac next to a decrepit garage in Dalston, east London, and I'm awaiting the arrival of a 5ft 3in, twice married mother of three, a once world-famous television star whose conversation has been likened to “wrestling with a crocodile". Oh dear. She’s also posed in knickers for a lads’ mag, been voted the world’s sexiest woman, won an Olivier nomination for her performance as Nora in Ibsen’s The Doll's House, and a Bafta n ...

The 'X' factor

Los Angeles Times, 17 Marzo 2011

The work of Scully and Mulder remains influential. Six Flms being released this season exhibit shades of 'The X Files.'

There's a strange confluence of sciencefiction movies being released this season - six otherwordly films in six weeks. What's behind this phenomenon? A little investigation shows that although TV's "The X-Files" went off the air in 2002, the truth may be still out there - and we're not just talking about the flashlights and lab coats inherited by Fox's "Fringe." These half-dozen films might all be filed under X in one way or another. Consider:"The Adjustment Bureau"(March 4) The mysterious puppet-master of this well reviewed sci-fi/thriller quietly tend to the course of human history and ... [Continua a leggere]

The Sunday Conversation: Gillian Anderson

LA Times #1

The onetime 'X-Files' star portrays Wallis Simpson, the woman who caused a king to abdicate, in the 'Masterpiece Classic' miniseries 'Any Human Heart.'

Gillian Anderson returns to American television Sunday night as Wallis Simpson in the "Masterpiece Classic" miniseries "Any Human Heart," based on William Boyd's sweeping novel of one man's life spanning the 20th century. The PBS series, also starring Matthew Macfadyen, Jim Broadbent, Hayley Atwell and Kim Cattrall, runs through Feb. 27.Wallis Simpson seems to be everywhere these days. She's also a character in "The King's Speech," although your portrayal of her in "Any Human Heart" was very different. She seems like less of a siren and more of a monster.I don't know about monster. I think she ... [Continua a leggere]
