Back in January we reported that Gillian Anderson would star as Anna Pavlovna in BBC’s newest adaptation of War and Peace. It has been more than 40 years since the series starring Anthony Hopkins hit the airwaves and the network is now ready to bring us a four-part miniseries set to air on Lifetime, A&E Network, and History in the states come January.
You may be wondering, as was I, just what happened to The Lone Gunmen. If you read the Season 10 comics published by IDW and written by Joe Harris, you would know (SPOILER) that their deaths were faked by the FBI. The Gunmen, played by Tom Braidwood, Dean Haglund, and Bruce Harwood, have been confirmed for to appear in the six-episode event alongside other alumni such as Mitch Pileggi and William B. Davis.
It’s here, Philes! The first official teaser trailer for the much-anticipated X-Files extension series! The powers that be (hey, FOX, what’s up?) gave us this little ditty which, honestly, may only show us the wiser Mulder and Scully for about five seconds, but it was enough to get me even more excited than I was before watching it.
Be honest, who is doing the 201 days of X-Files leading up the Jan 24, 2016 premiere? I am sure going to try! Crap, I’m an episode behind already ….
If you are any level of Phile, you know that the X Files revival is shooting in Vancouver, BC. From the recent TVLine article, they are on to shooting episode two, soon-to-be episode three of the six episode mini-series revival. When asked about Scully and how it has been being back in her shoes, actress Gillian Anderson says, “It feels like it’s been a long time since I’ve played her.”
In September of last year I had the privilege of having a National Theatre Live Event showing of Streetcar Named Desire from the Young Vic at a local movie theatre. I walked out of that showing awestruck. This was the kind of theatre I went to theatre school to make. This was the kind of magic that I longed to go to the theatre and see with my own eyes, not through a movie screen. My longing is about to be fulfilled as the Streetcar Named Desire with Gillian Anderson and Ben Foster is about to come stateside.
That’s right, Philes, Let’s all rejoice over the fantastic news that we get six whole hours of new X-Files once again. Fox announced the premiere dates for their new Prime Time lineup this morning at Upfronts in NYC. For the first time since 2002, one of our old favorites is on the list.
After a roaring success (at least I’m calling it that) with her first novel, A Vision of Fire, released back in October, it was only a matter of time before Gillian Anderson took to the page again. While A Vision of Fire is only the first in a series penned with co-author Jeff Rovin, it will likely be a while before we see the publishing of the second novel in the series. Until then, keep your eyes peeled for this new novel by Anderson titled WE.
Whether you are a baby Phile just taking your first shaky steps into the paranormal or a die hard Phile from day one, we all have something in common: we want more X-Files. More Dana Scully-level sass, more Mulder douchbaggery and everything in beween. Today is our lucky day, Philes … We get more. Continue reading →
We posted a few days ago about the short film Gillian Anderson wrote, directed and starred in called The Departure. The host website, The Guardian, did a live web chat with Gillian earlier today where she delved into some serious matters, told us a joke or two and overall made us respect and adore her even more.
“There seems to be an upswing of negative perception about feminism. And on the one hand, it’s our own fault. And I guess I’d like to be a part of a movement towards it not being a dirty word or having negative connotations or being taboo. Can we talk about what’s not working, without blame, can we focus on moving forward?”
