Gillian Anderson, (born August 9, 1968, Chicago, Illinois, U.S.), American actress and writer best known for her role as FBI Special Agent Dana Scully on the television series The X-Files (1993–2002, 2016, and 2018)

In high school Anderson thought about becoming a marine biologist, but community theatre participation whetted her appetite for acting. She earned a B.F.A. degree at the Goodman Theatre School at DePaul University, Chicago, and attended the National Theatre of Great Britain’s summer program at Cornell University, Ithaca, New York, before pursuing a theatre career in New York City. Anderson appeared in the Off-Broadway production Absent Friends, winning a 1991 Theatre World Award, and in The Philanthropist at the Long Wharf Theatre in New Haven, Connecticut, before moving to Los Angeles.

After a few motion-picture and television appearances, Anderson got her big break when she auditioned for a part on The X-Files. At the insistence of the show’s creator, Chris Carter, she landed her first starring role, playing Dana Scully, a skeptical scientist and doctor working as an FBI special agent alongside Fox (“Spooky”) Mulder (played by David Duchovny). Together the partners investigated paranormal events and government conspiracies. The story lines as well as the chemistry between Anderson and Duchovny made The X-Files one of the most popular shows on television in the 1990s, averaging 20 million viewers each week. In 1998 the motion picture The X-Files: Fight the Future took in more than $30 million in its first weekend. Although the television series ended in 2002, a second movie, The X-Files: I Want to Believe, was released in 2008.

Anderson also took roles in several miniseries on British television. Among her portrayals were Lady Dedlock in Bleak House (2005), based on Charles Dickens’s novel; Wallis Simpson in Any Human Heart (2010); and, in another adaptation of a Dickens work, Miss Havisham in Great Expectations (2011). Beginning in 2013, she starred as a detective in the Northern Ireland-set crime drama The Fall and also had a recurring role on the American series Hannibal (2013–15). In 2016 Anderson portrayed Anna Pavlovna Scherer in a television adaptation of Leo Tolstoy’s War and Peace and reprised the role of Scully in a six-part X-Files miniseries. Ten additional episodes, starring Anderson and Duchovny, aired in 2018. She also appeared in American Gods in 2017, playing Media, a god who transforms into various celebrities, including Lucille Ball, David Bowie, and Marilyn Monroe. Anderson was later cast as a pubescent’s oversharing sex therapist mother in Sex Education (2019– ) and as Margaret Thatcher in the fourth season (2020) of The Crown..
