On that note, how do you feel about revisiting the role of Scully, with X-Files coming back?
I’m excited about it! I’m in Vancouver and we start on Monday [As of this interview, they started a week ago!]. It’s good to be here. I’m looking forward to it. I think with the perspective of the years that have passed, I’m grateful for the opportunity to revisit the character again and have fun and immerse ourselves in the nostalgia around it. It feels like a good thing.
This hellogiggles interview touches on Hannibal, The X-Files (SQUEE!) and even mentions the EarthEnd Saga. You can read the full interview here.
Gillian will be attending NYCC again this year. She’ll be signing October 9th – 11th and will be part of the “Damsels in Distress Need Not Apply” panel on October 10th from 3:15 to 4pm in 1A01.
Gone are the days when females take to a backseat to the action, or wait to be saved, but crafting a strong female protagonist isn’t easy. Jennifer Donnelly (Deep Blue), SJ Harper (Reckoning), Gillian Anderson (Vision Of Fire), Romina Russell (Zodiac), Marie Rutkoski (The Winner’s Curse), C.L. Wilson (Winter King), Alexandra Bracken (In The Afterlight), Colleen Gleason (The Spiritglass Charade) and Amelia Kahaney (Invisible) discuss the challenges they faced creating their standout heroines.
Unfortunately, it appears that all tickets (single day and four day) except Thursday are already sold out. If you haven’t already bought a ticket, you won’t be able to at this point.
Gillian was interviewed recently for Parade Magazine and she talks a bit about her recent acting jobs, as well as, her new job as co-author of a scifi book series.
And on top of this, you signed a deal to do a sci-fi book?
“Yeah! Actually, we’re on Chapter 14. We’re already a good way into it, and I write on airplanes most of the time. My schedule for Crisis is such that I’m on a lot of airplanes and there’s a lot of space where I’m also at home with my kids. Now through March I’ll be working on the books as well, and hopefully that will conclude them because once I jump into doing The Fall, I’m not going to be able to focus on anything but that. So I think it will work out.”
