X-files Bosses Wanted Pam Anderson For Lead Role

The producers of hit TV show THE X-FILES originally had their eye on a different ANDERSON for the character AGENT DANA SCULLY - BAYWATCH babe PAMELA ANDERSON.
The role of the F.B.I. special agent was made famous by Gillian Anderson, but the actress insists TV studio Twentieth Century Fox wanted to cast the blonde beauty instead.
She says, "That was somebody (Pamela Anderson) who was more familiar to them in terms of what was on TV at the time.
"They were looking for someone bustier, taller, leggier than me. They couldn't fathom how David and me could equal success... At the beginning, nobody trusted that I could do anything. I had no body of work behind me at all, and, certainly Fox felt very strongly that I wasn't the right person for the job."
