Gillian Anderson


Best known for her role as Special Agent Dana Scully in The X-Files, Gillian Anderson is a screen and stage actress with a varied career full of period pieces and recurring characters on television dramas. At the time she took the role of Scully television was looked down upon as a form of entertainment media (she herself had been reluctant to become involved in it), but The X-Files proved to be one of the first shows to demonstrate that the small screen could match its larger cousin: Anderson’s character was among the aspects of the show that inspired future productions, and associated props are now stored in the Smithsonian National Museum of American History.

Outside of acting Anderson is involved in a number of charitable pursuits, listed and described on her website. She has been interviewed several times about her past relationships with women, but was never quoted using a term to define herself; ‘bisexual’ is used here for the sake of tagging.

Anderson’s Facebook account is available here and her Twitter feed is here.
