Gillian Anderson is back. The popular X-files honey is again doing films and her fans could not be happier. The actress is right now working on the X-Files sequel and also stars in what sounds like a near X-Rated "art" film Boogie Woogie which stars Gemma Atkinson and Joanna Lumley along with Gillian and Heather Graham.
The film reportedly has some very steamy lesbian scenes included. The British tabloids made a big deal last month about one particularly wild scene with Gemma, who romps with Ray Winstone's daughter Jaime in the London-based movie.
Now Gillian will move forward and host the PBS' "Masterpiece Theatre." According to the Miami herald Anderson, even better known as Agent Dana Scully from the Fox series "The X-Files," will make her debut as host of the renamed "Masterpiece Classic" on Jan. 13.
Through May, she will present 10 programs that include adaptations of all six of Jane Austen's novels plus a new biopic; "Cranford," a three-part miniseries starring Judi Dench; "My Boy Jack," starring Daniel Radcliffe and Kim Cattrall; and a new adaptation of E.M. Forster's "A Room with a View" by Andrew Davies.
