      Gillian Anderson

      Highest Rated: 100% The Widowmaker (2015)

      Lowest Rated: 32% The Sunlit Night (2019)

      Birthday: Aug 9, 1968

      Birthplace: Chicago, Illinois, USA

      An intelligent and versatile actress, Gillian Anderson forged a career that spanned every medium - from American television and feature films, to the stages of London. A natural blonde, Anderson rose to fame as the no-nonsense redhead FBI agent Dana Scully on the cult sci-fi series, "The X-Files" (Fox, 1993-2002), a role which earned her a multitude of die-hard fans and both Emmy and Golden Globe awards. Named one of People magazine's "50 Most Beautiful People" in 1997, Anderson's recognition from her dark, chill-inducing series provided her with a solid platform from which to branch out into a variety of film and stage work. Exhibiting her full dramatic range, Anderson turned in critically acclaimed performances in the period film "The House of Mirth" (2000), the Dickens adaptations "Bleak House" (BBC 2005) and "Great Expectations" (BBC 2011), and the chilling crime series "The Fall" (BBC 2013- ). With an obvious skill for and love of her craft, Anderson established herself as an immensely gifted actress, even apart from her beloved characterization of Agent Dana Scully, for which she remained most revered and which she revisited in a pair of films and a 2016 limited series.
