Gillian Anderson for Vanity Fair UK Philanthropy Issue 2016
Gillian Anderson seems at once delicate and strong – a paradox that has served her well. Not only is she a critically acclaimed Golden Globe – and Emmy-winning film, television and theatre actress, having landed roles as Agent Scully, Wallis Simpson, Miss Havisham and DSI Stella Gibson (in the Fall), but she is also an author, mother and campaigner. She has been an ambassador for Survival International, the global movement for tribal peoples’ rights since 2011. “People in the world who live ‘uncontacted’ and in perfect harmony with nature are not part of the systematic destruction of our planet, and yet are persecuted and driven from their habitats by the very people who are responsible. This is so fundamentally wrong and heartbreaking that to help protect them and give them a face and a voice must be supported and celebrated as noble and vital work.” she says. She wears a “strong, delicate, bold, tough and feminine” Baume & Mercier Classima. How apt. – H.R.

2016 Neurofibromatosis Supporters Circle
Award Recipient – Gillian Anderson
The Neurofibromatosis Network is honored to present Gillian Anderson with our 2016 Neurofibromatsis Supporters Circle Award. Gillian has been raising funds for the NF Network since 1995 in honor of her brother, Aaron, who was born with NF1. In 2007 Gillian’s mother, Rosemary, helped launch an annual fundraiser, now known as Doodle4NF. Look for this 10-day auction of celebrity Doodles each May on eBay. Gillian’s faithful assistance in the collection of Doodles insures the auction’s continuing success. Five years ago Aaron passed away at age 30 from an NF-related brain tumor. In his memory Gillian held a series of online auctions of her personal X-Files memorabilia that raised $75,000 for the Network earlier this year. It is with grateful hearts and sincere thanks that everyone associated with the Neurofibromatosis Network would like to recognize and honor Gillian Anderson with our 2016 Supporters Circle Award.

One Last Thing Gillian Anderson (People Magazine)
Last Girl’s Night Out
I’m part of a book club that is all women and it happens at night at somebody else’s house. The person who hosts cooks dinner, I’m definitely not one of the better cooks, but I make an effort.
I always have a secret brownie in my purse and sometimes I carry it around for weeks. Today I finished an audiobook I was doing and the brownie was only a few days old so it was my indulgence.
Last Time I Was Nervous
I presented at the Evening Standard Theatre awards and it needed to be memorised. I know I’m an actor, I know I should be good at it, I know. But I could barely hold a conversation until I’d been up onstage and didn’t completely die.
Last Thing I Returned
I suddenly decided I needed a pair of leather pants, but you have to order a few, so I returned the other sizes that didn’t fit. I’ll probably wear them and then go “Oh my god, you’re too old for that.”
Last Fashion Disaster
I had a theatre event and I’d done a photo shoot that day, so I thought I’d be able to use the hairdo, but it was greasy. I was in a hurry so I put it up in a bun and threw on an oversize dress. My daughter [Piper, 21] was like “Mom, I don’t know know, are you sure?” It did not photograph well at all.
Gillian Anderson joins pupils at Islington Primary School in support of reading campaign.
Gillian said: “Being able to read and enjoy books is such a vital skill for children to acquire, and is crucial to their life chances. It’s an honour to be able to support Reading Recovery Read Aloud, and to witness first-hand how children such as those at William Tyndale Primary School have benefited from the work done by the International Literacy Centre. These children have not just learned to read, they now have the confidence to let their voice be heard.”

Overpacking and Unpacking with Gillian Anderson
The Fall actor discusses the X-Files revival, steamed pork buns and the upside of travelling with too much stuff.
JAN 07, 2016 · INTERVIEW BY MIKALA GEORGIA GRANTE | ILLUSTRATION BY ORIANA FENWICK
Home base London
Claim to fame Starring roles in suspenseful TV dramas like The X-Files, The Fall and Hannibal
Current projects Reprising her star-making role as Special Agent Dana Scully in the X-Files revival, set to premiere this month on Fox
Travel essential Epsom salts. “It’s the only thing I bring with me for a sense of comfort.”
Next trip “I really want to explore more of India and Southeast Asia – the trick is finding the time!”
You’re back in Vancouver, shooting the X-Files miniseries. How much of a time warp is it?
Lots of flashbacks. It’s been great to see old friends and colleagues. But I’m shocked to see Vancouver this populated. I can’t believe how many people I see walking down the street. When we were living here, there was no downtown.
What’s your strongest memory of the city?
The weather. We worked through rain, snow, sleet, hail – you name it. I’ve got lots of memories of doing long walk-and-talk scenes and trying not to slip on the ice, or having my hair blown out between every take because the moisture in the air made it frizz up.
Any favourite new restaurants?
Bao Bei has great staff and a great atmosphere. I could literally eat their steamed pork buns or any of their tenderloin dishes nightly. After you put your name down, swing by the Keefer Bar a few doors down for an infused martini, and again afterwards for a nightcap, and your evening is set.
Your personal style has received a lot of praise. Any tips for what to wear when you commute as often as you do?
I’ve been working in India shooting Viceroy’s House, and I’m very grateful for the crepe dresses I have. They don’t wrinkle even if crumpled into a ball in my suitcase. I still always pack too much. The downside is lugging everything around, but the upside is, I’ve always got something to wear if an event springs up.
what’s your ideal vacation?
I’m happy in the shade by a nice pool pretty much anywhere.
‘I’m part elf!’: the best revelations from 2015’s culture webchats
Rob Brydon, Ai Weiwei, Lee Scratch Perry, Gillian Anderson … comedians, artists, musicians and actors gave us a wealth of insight into their creative lives. What did we learn?
Gillian Anderson, actor
There seems to be an upswing of negative perceptions about feminism. I’d like to be a part of a movement pushing for it not being a dirty word. I know there was something called the Scully Effect in scientific journals: an influx of girls going into sciences during The X-Files. So I guess I was part of a movement that saw girls embracing their brains.
Gillian Anderson’s New Year’s resolution is to be « less busy. »
‘The X-Files’ actress is hoping to cut down on her commitments in 2016, though she already has an extremely busy few months planned.
She said: « I think if there was anything it would be to be less busy.
« [But] I have quite a few plans.
« I did ‘War and Peace’, and ‘The-X Files’ are coming out in January.
« Then continuing with ‘The Fall’ until March, then go to New York with ‘Streetcar’; I did that here last year, and we are taking that to New York. »
« I just did a film in India playing Edwina Mountbatten and Hugh Bonneville plays Lord Mountbatten. »
And as well as her stage and screen work, the 47-year-old actress is also keeping busy with her book writing.
She said: « I have just released a second novel in a trilogy ‘The Dream of Ice’, so there is the next in that series.
« I am working on another novel with a friend of mine called ‘We’, that will be coming out next September. »
Although Gillian insisted that she is not following any festive customs, one tradition that she is dabbling in is the Victorian Christmas ritual involving ghost stories.
Gillian also has recorded a Victorian Ghost story ‘Mrs Zant and the Ghost’, written by Wilkie Collins, which is part of a series of Christmas tales on Audible, including ‘A Christmas Carol’, a short story by David Walliams and many more.
Gillian said: « I love Victorian stories; Victorian ghost stories are even better. »
And the ‘Fall’ star – who has daughter Piper, 21, and sons Oscar, nine, and Felix, seven, from past relationships – enjoys listening to audiobooks with her family.
She said of the project: « The idea is that everybody seems to do a lot of travelling; car travelling, train travelling, travelling period over the holidays that often with cars packed with family members.
« Listening to audiobooks with family members is a wonderful thing to do.
« We often listen to on journeys, but this is something I would definitely choose to do with my family, specific to Christmas, around Christmas. »
‘Mrs Zant and the Ghost’ will be available on Audible for free from today (23.12.15).

Gillian Anderson on ‘The House of Grief’
Shamefully, the last time I read a book was the last time I wasn’t either filming or writing myself, and so we’re going back now to April’s Easter holiday break. I started with “Lila,” Marilynne Robinson’s haunting tale told from the point of view of a young woman who has lived a life of poverty and transience and who ends up in a small town in Iowa. Next came another jolly tale: Helen Garner’s “This House of Grief.” It grabbed me by the throat in the same way that the podcast series “Serial” did. Ms. Garner brilliantly and compassionately recounts the harrowing, real-life trial of Robert Farquharson, an Australian who was convicted of murder in 2007 after driving his car into a dam, killing his three young sons (though whether it was intentional remains a mystery). And my third springtime read? “Holy Cow” by my very own David Duchovny. I don’t know what to say about this book except that the humor is right up my alley—my daughter and I were in fits of giggles. “Holy Cow” is the tale of Elsie the cow, who comes to a realization about her fate on the farm and hits the road to India, where she will be better appreciated. In the end she teaches us a lesson or two about tolerance and getting along with other species—what more could you want in a book?

Hannibal returns: Bryan Fuller creates PETA ad with Gillian Anderson
Gillian Anderson wigs out
Hair today, gone tomorrow. Last week The Londoner was at Stoke Newington Town Hall for the annual Park Theatre Gala Dinner, discussing baldness with Gillian Anderson. The actress, pictured, who last year appeared onstage in A Streetcar Named Desire, used to live around the corner in Crouch End, long before she became the auburn-mopped Dana Scully in the Nineties for The X-Files.
But red doesn’t come as easily these days now that a reboot of the sci-fi series is in production. “I was excited about going back to being a redhead,” Anderson lamented. “But I was warned that my hair would absolutely fall out, so I wore a wig for that and went immediately on to filming in India, where I wore another wig. It’s never fun but definitely better than having a bald head.”

Gillian Anderson, Hannibal
For someone who once turned her nose up at television, Gillian Anderson is on the tube quite a lot. When the much-anticipated revival of the cult sci-fi program The X-Files—which made her famous and won her an Emmy, a Golden Globe, and two Screen Actors Guild awards more than a decade ago as the FBI agent Dana Scully—premieres as a six-part miniseries on Fox in January, the London-based actress will be on no less than three shows. There’s also NBC’s Hannibal, in which she plays Hannibal Lecter’s psychotherapist, and the BBC’s The Fall, where she stars as a detective tracking a serial killer. All three characters, by nature and by profession, seem to be coated with Teflon. “The challenge is to keep these women out of Scully,” Anderson says. “Especially when I’m having equally fearless conversations with other law enforcement officials.” She laughs and admits that reprising the meticulous Scully—whom she inhabited for nine seasons and two films—is a bit like riding a bike. “Somewhere before the first read, it’ll just click into gear.”
Anderson wears a Bottega Veneta dress.

Toulouse Game Show: Gillian will attend on November 28 (Saturday) – panel, autograph sessions, and photo-ops
Gillian Anderson is getting back in her pant suit, speaking cynicism to truth, and rekindling the dynamic that launched a trillion ‘shippers. SCULLY IS BACK, NERDS! Meanwhile, the actress who was born in Chicago, raised in England, and then returned to Grand Rapids, Michigan just in time for high school, has been busy chasing villains, both as a steely detective inspector in pursuit of Jamie Dornan’s serial killer in The Fall, and as Dr. Lector’s psychiatrist in Bryan Fuller’s Hannibal, which returns to NBC tomorrow, June 4. A few days before her first table read with The X-Files creator Chris Carter and co-star David Duchovny, for what will be an at-least-six-episode reboot of the show that started it all, Anderson and I talked about sexism in Hollywood, Scully the feminist hero, and the men in her life—little green, and otherwise.
