In recent interview with Talk Stoop’s Cat Greeleaf, Gillian Anderson opened up about her recent TV shows success, and how these roles have impacted her personal life.
Anderson, who is on a career high right now, currently plays the hero in the dark and gripping gripping thriller The Fall, now commissioned for a third series. In the below interview she credits playing DSI Stella Gibson with helping her become more in touch with her sexuality.
In spending time with her I became more accepting of myself, and the more complicated aspects of my personality. And at the same time I became more in touch with my femininity and sexuality.”
Early this year, Anderson told UK newspaper the Telegraph she is looking for a little romance, and she would not rule out another same sex relationship – as long as her next relationship is The One.
I’m so lucky to have such great work. I’ve got a fantastic life, I have a wonderful relationship with my kids, and there’s nothing lacking, but I’m leaning towards the idea that it’s time for somebody to be brave enough to ask me out.
I wouldn’t discount it. I did it before and I’m not closed to that idea. To me a relationship is about loving another human being; their gender is irrelevant.”
