“I recently did another film, Mr. Morgan’s Last Love, with Michael Caine and Justin Kirk. I knew there was a light comic element to the character, obviously, from having read the script, but I didn’t anticipate that it was going to be quite as much fun as it was. Justin and I played brother and sister, and we developed a very fun kind of repartee, with a lot of ad-libbing and stuff like that. It was very nice and refreshing to do something like that in the midst of all of this heavy-duty stuff” —Gillian Anderson (about her upcoming movie Mr Morgan’s Last Love) -avclub.com interview-

“Law enforcement is my specialty! It’s actually fun to play law-enforcement chicks and keep them apart” —Gillian Anderson (when asked about her character on her new series The Fall)
