What I find fantastic is any notion that there are answers beyond the realm of science. The answers are there. You just have to know where to look.

Gillian Anderson: actress with a very distinctive X factor

The star of TV series The X-Files has gone on to distinguish herself on stage and screen. Now she’s playing Blanche DuBois, a role she’s long coveted.
"I auditioned for Blanche at drama college," she said in 2011. "I thought I could have played her then, but didn’t – it’s tragic. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do before I die."
The show (The X-files) became a phenomenon. But the most uncomfortable truth was that she was suffering…Postnatal depression didn’t take long to announce itself. “Except there was no time for it, which made it worse,” she said. “I shed a lot of silent tears. At times, all I wanted to do was quit and be with my baby.”
"There were times, especially during the divorce, when I was just in tears constantly," Anderson said. She was accompanied on the set of The X-Files by a team of make-up artists devoted to disguising the fact that she had been crying.

Best of times She was cast at the age of 24 as Scully in The X-Files. The show ran for nine series, from 1993 to 2002.

For the first of two spin-off films, she negotiated the same fee (£2.6m) as her co-star, David Duchovny, after being paid less than him during the series.

Worst of times Following the birth of her first child in 1994, she suffered panic attacks and postnatal depression before divorcing her husband, Clyde Klotz, an assistant art director she had met on The X-Files.

She says ”I always had a tendency to be involved in things that have been on the edge in some way.”

They say ”She reaches genuine tragedy without making it sentimental and that’s not easy.” Director Terence Davies
