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.”

She’ll be continuing role as Hannibal Lecter’s psychotherapist in the US TV series Hannibal.
