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.

“People are going to get so sick of me,” says Anderson, 46, who has lined up four series. Now appearing opposite Mads Mikkelsen in the third season of NBC’s macabre Hannibal (Thursdays, 10 p.m. ET/PT), the Emmy-winning actress will also star next year in Fox’s update of sci-fi smash The X-Files, Season 3 of BBC’s The Fall, also due on Netflix, and BBC’s War and Peace miniseries, airing on Lifetime, History and A&E.
“It’s a great time. I’m very fortunate to have the range of stuff available to me right now,” she adds. “It’s nice to be able to work out how to fit as much of it in as possible, and still have a life and be an active mother” to three children.

I have captures from the season premiere of Hannibal ready to upload so look for those tomorrow. In the mean time, I’m just going to leave this picture here.
I’d also like to apologize for the lack of updates the last couple of months. Life got hectic and updates were one of the things that suffered. I promise to try to do better and keep you updates on all things Bedelia and Scully in the coming months.
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.
