Gillian Anderson: Sexy that We Believe In

If you’re anything like us, then you grew up watching the fiery-haired Gillian Anderson as Special Agent Dana Scully on The X-Files. The sexy Scully might in fact be more than a little responsible for the love of red-heads we continue to have to this day. We loved to speculate about what she might look like under those severe suits, and had we been given half a chance we were confident we could make a believer out of the skeptical FBI agent — or at least play doctor. We were not alone: in 1996, FHM voted her the sexiest woman in the world, in 1997 People listed her as one of the 50 most beautiful people in the world, and she is consistently ranked one of the sexiest women of the 1990s. And we can see why.

The Turning

Although Dana Scully was her first major role, which Anderson landed at the young age of 24, she has not let the character define her. She clearly has a love of the classics, appearing in roles in film and television adaptations of Tristram Shandy, Bleak House, Moby Dick and Great Expectations, among others. Although she no longer sports the fiery-red locks that she was known for in her role of Scully, we think her long strawberry blond tresses look just as hot. Don’t be surprised if you hear her speaking with a sexy English accent these days — Anderson lived in London until she was 11 and can switch accents with ease. And while you may be disappointed that you never got to see an Agent Scully sex scene (we know we are!) we managed to find a few very hot scenes featuring the lovely Ms. Anderson for your enjoyment.

Straightheads

Ever since the days of The X-Files, rumors have flown about Anderson’s romantic life, suggesting her onscreen chemistry with David Duchovny might not simply be confined to their work relationship. More recently, the internet has been aflutter after Anderson mentioned having had relationships with other women, including a high school romance with an older woman. We want to believe! After her recent breakup with boyfriend Mark Griffiths, gossip websites went wild with speculation that Mulder and Scully were finally together, claiming that Anderson had moved in with Duchovny. The pair’s PR quickly released statements that this wasn’t true. We say, the truth is out there.

Those of you who, like us, are itching to see Anderson back in a law-enforcement role are in luck: she stars in the upcoming BBC series The Fall as a Detective Superintendent in Northern Ireland. We hope BBC America decides to pick up the series. In the meantime, tide yourself over with a glimpse of the sexy Anderson in the shower scene from British thriller Straightheads.
