Career and Child to Abduct Gillian
Mulder's gone. Now Scully's heading out the door. Gillian Anderson, 32, has told London's Sunday Times that this will be her final season on the Fox series "The X-Files." "The stuff I am going to do is as far from Scully as humanly possible," the flaming redhead said of her future plans. "Having been Scully for such a long time, I have to prove myself in other roles." "The X-Files," starring David Duchovny as FBI agent Fox Mulder and Anderson as agent Dana Scully, debuted in 1993. Before then, the Chicago-born actress (who had spent much of her youth in London) made her film debut in 1992's "The Turning." "The X-Files" made her an international TV star and, in 1997, earned her an Emmy. Other than stating that she looked forward to appearing in a unnamed play in London next summer, Anderson said that she intends to spend more time with her daughter (by her ex-husband, art director Clyde Klotz), Piper, born in 1994. "It feels good," she said. "It's time."
