Gillian Anderson Criticises Lack Of Women On 'X-Files' Team


Gillian Anderson

Gillian Anderson is without a doubt one of the most talented British actors of the modern day. Having starred in critically-acclaimed shows such as 'The Fall' and 'American Gods', she's arguably most well known for her leading role as Dana Scully in 'The X-Files'; one she's had since the show started all the way back in 1993.

Unfortunately for Anderson, despite being such a big part of 'The X-Files', it seems it's taking even longer than the two decades it's been popular with fans for her voice to make an impression on those in charge.

Gillian Anderson Discusses "Delicious" 'American Gods' Opportunity


Gillian Anderson

Gillian Anderson is one of the most recognisable actresses of the modern day. Whether you know her from her early acting days in 'The X-Files', or her more recent roles such as Stella in crime drama series 'The Fall', she's somebody who manages to bring a real sense of relatablity to each character she brings to life. When you see Anderson take on a role, you wonder if anybody else would have been able to do as good a job.

Viceroy's House Trailer


'Viceroy's House' follows the life of the last Viceroy of India who was the figurehead of relinquishing British rule on the Indian subcontinent in 1947. Lord Mountbatten and his wife Lady Edwina Mountbatten were charged with overseeing India's newfound independence, wanting the nation to stay united as one. However, India was already divided by religion, with Muslim leader Muhammed Ali Jinnah wishing to establish a separate country in the form of Pakistan. The Partition of India was not a desirable option for the British rule, but as the civil unrest grew amongst the people and people began to divide themselves anyway, it became the only option for minimal damage to all nations.

Gillian Anderson Secures Equal Pay With David Duchovny Ahead Of 'X-Files' Return


Gillian Anderson David Duchovny

She may have won Emmys and Golden Globes for her performances as Dana Scully in ‘The X-Files’, but Gillian Anderson apparently had to stand her ground and insist on equal pay with her co-star David Duchovny for the series’ imminent return.

47 year old Anderson reportedly had to battle to secure pay parity with 55 year old Duchovny, according to an article in the Daily Mirror. ‘The Fall’ actress, said to be worth £17 million, was initially offered only half of what Duchovny was for the first ‘X-Files’ series in 14 years.

It’s a significant victory financially as well as symbolically, as Duchovny was offered between £155,000 and £172,000 per episode for the comeback tenth series, according to some reports.

Oscar Animated Shorts: Check Out The Nominees


Simon Pegg Gillian Anderson

Every year, The Academy makes a selection of short films from three separate disciplines: animation, documentary and live action. And while the latter categories are usually filled with hard-hitting, affecting stories, the animation section provides levity.

Mr HublotMr Hublot is a charming story, beautifully framed in a semi-mechanical world

Firstly, we have ‘Mr. Hublot’ – a semi-mechanical man living in a semi-mechanical world. He’s fully endowed with ODC, though, is a recluse and lives a life of order, but when a robot pet comes into his life, things change; no longer is he comfortably nestled in his comfort zone. This is computer animated short from France/Luxemburg, directed by Laurent Witz & Alexandre Espigares. It’s void of dialogue but says plenty with it’s beautiful aesthetic.

Gillian Anderson, David Duchovny Tease 'X-Files' Movie At Comic-Con


Gillian Anderson David Duchovny Vince Gilligan Bryan Cranston

Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny were two of the billboard names on the second day of Comic-Con San Diego, reuniting to discuss the 20th anniversary of their seminal sci-fi show The X-Files. Hundreds of fans squeezed into Ballroom 20 to hear Mulder and Scully talk, though the question on everyone's lips was clear: will there be an X-Files feature film?

Anderson recently found herself back in the spotlight with the success of BBC drama The Fall, and Duchovny hasn't been out of work since the show therefore a new series would be difficult, though a movie would certainly be viable. In fact, Anderson admitted she wouldn't be interested in a return to the small screen, though added, "a film would be great," to woops and cheers in the audience, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

It would be the third movie spin-off, after The X-Files and The X-Files: I Want to Believe.

Shadow Dancer Review


Excellent
Like Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, this thriller refuses to burst out into action mode, preferring to keep its thrills cerebral as the characters circle around each other like sharks. It's a fiercely complex, intelligent film that's expertly handled by Marsh (Man on Wire) in his narrative directing debut. And while mainstream audiences may long for just one explosive car chase, there are plenty of resonant themes to hold our attention in other ways.

Riseborough gives her best-yet performance as Colette, a young IRA operative who visits London in 1993 and is arrested by MI5 agent Mac (Owen). He offers her a terrible deal she can't refuse: if she wants to avoid prison to raise her son, she'll have to return to Belfast and spy on her mother (Brennan) and activist brothers (Gillen and Gleeson). But when she gets home, she discovers that the IRA boss (Wilmot) knows there's a spy in their midst. Is he talking about her? Or is there another one? And Mac is also a bit nervous when his boss (Anderson) starts acting suspicious.

Shadow Dancer Trailer


Colette McVeigh is a single mother who lives with her mother in Belfast. She is a republican with tyrannical brothers in the IRA. After a terminated plot to bomb London, she is arrested for the part she played in the scheme. MI5 agent Mac offers her a choice: go to prison for 25 years (after all, she is a terrorist), or go home to her mother and son and, in turn, spy on her extremist family and pass on information to Mac. However, no sooner has she become Mac's informant than Colette is in grave danger after suspicions are raised following an ambushed secret operation of her brothers'.

Johnny English Reborn Review


Good
After the painfully unfunny 2003 original, a franchise was highly unlikely. And yet the spoof spy is back, and this film actually has several hilarious set pieces. It's not hugely consistent or clever, but this one's at least amusing.

After a disastrous mission in Mozambique, disgraced spy Johnny English (Atkinson) joined a Himalayan monastery. But MI7 boss Pegasus (Anderson) calls him back into service, and soon he stumbles into a nefarious plan to assassinate China's prime minister. But he's also of course causing havoc. Now the lead suspect, only the agency's sexy shrink Kate (Pike) and his sidekick Tucker (Kaluuya) still have faith in him. And as the murderous plot unfurls at a mountain-top Swiss hideaway, English makes a daring attempt to save the world and clear his name.

The X-Files: The Complete Series Review


Extraordinary
In the early 1990s, the young Fox network was just beginning to hit its stride with an odd mix of television not found on the major three networks. Fox viewers found irreverent comedy courtesy of the dysfunctional families on The Simpsons and Married... with Children; gripping real-life crime action in COPS and America's Most Wanted; and sappy post adolescent soap drama with Beverly Hills 90210 and Party of Five. Just about the only thing missing from this eccentric network line-up was a show about aliens. Oh, but wait... oeven that show would eventually find a home on Fox; in the fall of 1993, The X-Files arrived.

The riveting pilot episode quickly sets the framework for the entire series. FBI Agent Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) works outside of the bureau's mainstream on discarded, unsolved cases regarding paranormal activity called the X-Files. His immediate supervisors think his work is without merit, so they assign a young female agent, Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) to work with Mulder and disprove his wild theories. Mulder believes we are not alone in the universe; Scully believes science holds the key to the unexplained. Their first case together -- teenagers being abducted and killed in Oregon -- raises more questions than answers and leaves Scully with little exculpatory evidence to report back to her superiors.

The House Of Mirth Review


Good

Director Terrence Davies took a chance casting "The X-Files'" Gillian Anderson as the devastated heroine in his adaptation of "The House of Mirth," Edith Wharton's corset opera of turn-of-the-Century social politics.

But in her first 20 seconds on screen -- speaking in deliciously eloquent dialogue and looking stunning in plumed hats with veils, fur collared dresses, brooches and a parasol -- she erases any and all memory of Agent Scully, the TV alter-ego you probably thought would haunt the actress for the rest of her career.

A drawing room drama about the whispered politics and wily business of marriage in New York high society, the film is about a beautiful young socialite whose life becomes hampered with scandal, in part because she can't reconcile her heart with the fact that she must marry well to maintain her station.
