Gillian Leigh Anderson was born on August 9, 1968 in Chicago, Illinois, United States. She went to elementary and high school in Michigan. She was a class artist, her artistic leanings towards acting were supported by her parents.

The eighties of the last century were stormy for the future actress. At the age of fourteen, she met a then 21-year-old punk singer and performed in his band. However, due to her frustration, she soon found another solution – a theater troupe, which she also pursued at the acting school (Goodman Theater School of Drama) in Chicago.

At 24, she made it all the way to Los Angeles, where screenwriter Chris Carter approached her. At that time, he was looking for the future star of the next science fiction series The X-Files. He was convinced that she was the most suitable for the role of Agent Scully. The producers offered the much more famous actress Pamela Lee. However, Carter was able to persuade the producers, so the collaboration on the sci-fi project could begin.

Although The X-Files producers weren’t convinced of the brilliant choice of lead actress, according to critics, Gillian handled the role perfectly. The actress owes a lot to Agent Scully. This launched his artistic career in a spectacular way. It made her a star with millions in royalties and an “intellectual sex symbol” to sci-fi fans everywhere.

However, the actress does not hide the fact that she did not receive dazzling offers after the end of the series. She spent a lot of time and energy trying to distance herself from Scully as much as possible. “It wasn’t easy. The people in the movie couldn’t accept the fact that I’m not Scully and that I can do other roles,” she said. The paradox is that great film roles awaited his acting partner David Duchovný.
