Gillian Leigh Anderson is a London-based American actress. After beginning her career in theater, Anderson achieved international recognition for her role as Special Agent Dana Scully on the American television series The X-Files. Her film work includes The House of Mirth (2000), The Mighty Celt (2005), The Last King of Scotland (2006), and two X-Files films, The X-Files (1998) and The X-Files: I Want to Believe (2008).
‘I was pasty, pudgy and all the kids referred to my parents as Yanks,’ says The X-Files star. ‘We’d visit family in the US and it was all sunshine and candy, so it had a magical tinge to it.’
The 42-year-old tells Psychologies magazine: ‘I wanted to move back to the US but, when we did, we moved to Michigan, nowhere near family and that had an impact.
Gillian Anderson features in the December issue of Psychologies, out on Wednesday
‘I didn’t know where I belonged. It wasn’t until my 20s that I fell in love with London again.’

I went to Canada with my parents on vacations and I remember the kids there calling my sister and I Yanks and we didnt know what it meant until we asked out parents. Once they told us they didnt like us because where we were from I remember that feeling. I even said but they dont even know me. I never again judged someone based off of where they were from ever again. Keep and open mind and an open heart.
