Gillian Anderson, the star of "The X-Files" who toplines the Berlin festival thriller "Shadow Dancer," has signed with Anonymous Content.

“She’s serious like Scully but definitely not so square,” the actress says of her role as a British police investigator in new crime series “The Fall.”

Emmy-winning actress Gillian Anderson reveals why she decided to return to small screen crime a decade after the end of seminal TV series The X Files.

In an interview with THR’s International Editor Scott Roxborough at television market MIPCOM in Cannes Anderson compares her character of British homicide detective Stella Gibson in BBC police series The Fall to X Files’s Dana Scully. THR produced this video in cooperation with MIPCOM.
