Gillian Leigh Anderson was born in Chicago, Illinois on August 9, 1968. Soon after her birth, the family relocated to Puerto Rico for 15 months and then moved to England. Gillian spent the next 9 years of her childhood growing up in London's North End - first in Stamford Hill and later in Crouch End - while her father Edward studied film production at the London School of Film Technique in Covent Garden for 2 years. Eventually the family moved back to the U.S.A. and settled in Grand Rapids where her father ran a film post-production company and her mother worked as a computer analyst. Gillian's love for acting began when she decided to audition for a community play while attending City High School in Grand Rapids, Michigan

"Somehow, I have no idea how the transition was made from wanting to be an archeologist or a marine biologist, to wanting to be an actress, but it just kind of happened," says Gillian.
In 1993, Gillian auditioned for a TV pilot of a newly formed Fox Network show called "The X-Files." It was for the role of Special Agent Dana Scully. "I couldn't put the script down," Gillian remembers. During the auditions, there was a bit of 'behind the scenes' action. The executives at Fox wanted someone with less radiance and more sex-appeal cast in the role of Scully, but writer-director Chris Carter insisted that Gillian had the no-nonsense integrity that the role required. "I sort of staked my pilot and my career at the time on Gillian. I feel vindicated everyday now," says Chris Carter about his decision to stand firm on his choice for Scully.

The best TV of 2013: No 10 – The Fall (BBC2)
POST WRITTEN BY: tEdy at 19:58pm | Filled under: News The Fall

On The Guardian appeared review of the TV series “The Fall” starring Gillian Anderson. The author is Lucy Mangan. Feel free to read.

This serial killer drama was not an easy watch, but the atmosphere of dread and the brutal murders were accompanied by some very sophisticated drama.

At this distance, I just recall the feeling of utter dread. Watching The Fall was like feeling water closing over your head. I used to welcome the flaws it certainly had – massive coincidences, some weird and not wonderful choices in terms of both plot and by characters, police investigative work that at times would have shamed Trumpton’s constabulary – as air pockets and breathe in a few lungfuls of reality before another Spector scene began and the black waters rose again.

Gillian Anderson was the big draw as DS Stella Gibson, the officer in charge of hunting down the person responsible for laying waste to Belfast’s young, professional, female (brunette), population and gathered a lot of plaudits. For my money, I thought her performance skidded across the line separating “glacial” from simply “frozen stiff” – you’ve got to give us something, Scully. But I thought Jamie Dornan as Paul Spector (bereavement counsellor and devoted family man by day, serial killer by night) was extraordinary. A virtually untried actor coming in and carrying off a part like that – sad, mad or some unholy mixture of the two but most definitely dangerous to know – was just amazing. I thought he would spend the rest of the year having awards and gorgeous, meaty, compelling scripts thrown at him but no. His next major role (apart from a second season of The Fall) is as Christian Grey in the film adaptation of EL James’ famous “mommy porn” bestseller Fifty Shades of Grey. This is a thought I cannot contemplate for long, lest I start bleeding from the ears, so let us move on.

Gillian Anderson On ‘The Fall’ And Getting Arrested In High School
POST WRITTEN BY: tEdy at 14:30pm | Filled under: News The Fall

There’s been a string of unsolved murders in Belfast, Northern Ireland, so they have to bring in the heat from London. Detective Superintendent Stella Gibson appears to be the embodiment of what people in Belfast often don’t like about London: She seems cool, correct, fiercely intelligent, but icy.

The London detective is the central character of The Fall, a British series that was a huge critical and commercial hit there this year and is now available in the U.S. on DVD. Gibson is portrayed by Gillian Anderson, the American-born actor who, until maybe now, was best known as Dana Scully from the X-Files.

Anderson tells NPR’s Scott Simon about The Fall’s European flavor and the time she was voted most likely to get arrested in high school.

On what drew her to the character of Gibson

[As with] most jobs that come my way, it came first in the form of a script. And there’s something about [creator] Alan Cubitt’s writing that kind of gets under your skin. So from the moment I turned the first page, I couldn’t put it down for his writing. But I also was very intrigued by this character of Gibson and didn’t feel like I’d really read a character like her before, encountered a character quite like her before. And she continues to remain an enigma for me.

On how much she and the show were influenced by the British police procedural Prime Suspect, which starred Helen Mirren

I’m a huge fan of Helen Mirren, that goes without saying. I think it was always something that I held in the back of my mind as something to aim for. And [The Fall] could have gone a few ways in the way that it was shot, and it certainly could have been shot differently and felt more Americanized. And I felt very strongly, because of Prime Suspect, that it [have] a grittiness to it. It … has a European flavor and it comes off the page.

On moving to London after The X-Files ended

I grew up in London. … We moved to Michigan when I was 11 and our intention was always to move back. That never happened. But in my mind, that was home. … London was always going to continue to be in my life as an adult and I knew that.

And so when I was filming The X-Files, pretty much every summer I would go to London and rent a place for a period of time and be there. When the series was going to conclude, I was determined that I was going to do theater and that I was going to do it in London rather than on Broadway.

On being voted most likely to get arrested in high school

When we moved to Michigan … my folks still had a flat in London that we would go to in the summertime. And through one of those trips I had started to become interested in the punk scene and started to dress differently than a lot of the kids in Grand Rapids, Mich., were dressing. And I got my nose pierced and I started to shave my head and dye my hair and wear a lot of black. And so I looked like somebody that might be arrested. … I was a bit of a class clown, usually the one that people would get to do the things that they were afraid to get in trouble for. So the mixture of those two things contributed, no doubt, to that vote.

And, in fact, on graduation night, I was arrested. … I had a boyfriend at the time who was a couple centuries older than I was and I’d convinced him that we should go and glue the locks of the school so that people couldn’t get in in the morning. And lo and behold, they had a security guard because it was graduation night and they were concerned that idiots like me might try and do something like that.

Gillian Anderson will be back to “Hannibal”
POST WRITTEN BY: tEdy at 22:07pm | Filled under: Hannibal Projects

According TVLine we know that Gillian Anderson will return in the second season of the NBC show “Hannibal”. Dr. Bedelia Du Maurier, Lecter’s psychotherapist will appear in the first two episodes, it is already clear that the first episod will be called – “Kaiseki“. Are you excited as I am?

Question: I recently saw that L-Fish has signed on to do an HBO show. How does this affect his role as Jack Crawford in Hannibal? I hope he’s doing Season 2. The show wouldn’t work without him. —Jared
Ausiello: It will have no impact on Lau-F’s Season 2 Hannibal schedule; he will appear in all episodes produced. However, if the HBO project gets ordered to series, it would probably limit his role in a possible third season. (His Hannibal contract is season-to-season.) Bonus Scoop: Gillian Anderson will be back as H-Lec’s shrink in S2′s first two episodes!

Gillian wears only an EEL for eye catching campaign
POST WRITTEN BY: tEdy at 19:00pm | Filled under: Gallery Updates News

The 45-year-old actress, who played Scully on the cult TV show, bared all apart from the massive sea creature which helped protect her modesty. The eye-catching picture, published today, was taken to support Fishlove – a campaign against deep-sea trawling in European waters. The revealing image was part of a collection taken by French portrait photographer Denis Rouvre.

Other celebrities who also stripped off for the camera included actress Olivia Williams and rapper Goldie. Campaigners say deep sea fishing is washing out ecosystems the size of London every day. The images have been released ahead of a crucial vote on December 10 in the European Parliament to ban the practice.

Nicholas Röhl, who founded the campaign with actress Greta Scacchi, said: “What is really shocking is that deep sea fishing is wholly dependant on taxpayer’s money for its survival. “The practice is not only environmentally but also economically unsustainable.”

Campaigners have also launched a petition for those wishing to support the cause. It is looked to receive 10,000 signatures and send a messages to MEPs over deep sea fishing. To sign the petition click here.
