The girl fell in love with London with all her heart, but could not build relationships with peers. Since she grew up in a family of Americans, she differed from other children in accent. To get rid of the mockery, she persistently trained the British accent. By the age of 11, she managed to mimic the local language environment, but suddenly her parents bowled her over with the news ‒ they were going to return to the States, to the town of Grand Rapids, Michigan. There the girl began to be mocked because of the British accent ‒ first in elementary school, then in the secondary one, where Gillian profoundly studied under the humanitarian program for talented children.
The actress had a younger brother (born in 1981), who was diagnosed with neurofibromatosis and died of a brain tumor at the age of 30; she has a sister Zoe (born in 1982). She played as Scully in her youth in the episode Christmas Carol.
And indeed, the filmography of the actress is rapidly growing. Since 2019, Gillian Anderson has been starring in the Netflix series Sex Education. In it, the actress plays the mother of the protagonist - a psychologist specializing in sex. The first season kicked off successfully, as did the second (2020), after which the series was extended for several more seasons.
I respect my colleagues on the show, but I’ve finished with it, completely. As an actress, I like to search for new tasks and new characters. It’s time to leave Scully. For the next couple of years my schedule is packed to capacity.
