Gillian Anderson hints at third X-Files film

Gillian Anderson would reprise her role as Dana Scully for a third ‘X-Files’ movie and thinks there is a “possibility” a sequel will be made.

The 46-year-old actress played FBI agent Dana Scully in the original sci-fi TV series and its spin-off movies and although the last film came out in 2008 she’d be up for returning to the franchise – which also starred David Duchovny as her partner Fox Mulder.

When asked about the chance of their being another movie or even another TV series, Gillian said, “Yes, there is a possibility. There is always a possibility, it’s always a matter of it actually happening – and there’s a lot that needs to happen between the idea and actually turning up on set, and I don’t unfortunately have any control over that. But would I do it? I would, yes.”

The actress can currently be seen in BBC TV show ‘The Fall’, in which she plays a police officer investigating a string of murders in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

Gillian stars opposite Jamie Dornan in the drama but she resisted the urge to quiz him about his upcoming role as masochistic lover Christian Grey in erotic movie ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’.

During an interview on ‘This Morning’, she said: “Jamie’s a very good storyteller … and he has a very good singing voice! He finished filming ‘Fifty Shades’ before we started again but we didn’t talk about it very much. He’s probably going to be talking about that for the rest of his life, so I didn’t ask him … but I’m a fan of (director) Sam Taylor-Wood and I was interested to know what that experience was like working with her, so that was the question I asked.”

A third ‘X Files’ film was previously planned to start shooting in 2012 but the project never got started.
