Gillian Anderson: ‘I Could Be Dating A Woman Next Year’

Gillian Anderson – who came out in 2012 – says she has no issue with her bisexuality

Anderson – who came out as bisexual in 2012 – is currently in a relationship with ‘The Crown’ creator Peter Morgan, but admitted she is only ”part long-term” in their romance.

Speaking to The Times magazine, she the actress said:

”I could be with a woman next year! Part of me looks long-term. As long as there’s always a back door.”

And speaking about her bisexuality, she insisted she doesn’t care what other people think.

”It’s just who I am. I have absolutely no issue with it whatsoever, and I don’t really care if other people have an issue with it. We’re all intersectional, and that is something that is only just beginning to become accepted or embraced. We’re all complicated beings. That is my truth and that is my experience.”

However, Anderson insisted she is currently very happy in her relationship with Peter and loves that they work in the same industry.

”I’m constantly grateful for the symbiosis because I haven’t had that experience before.”

Anderson recently confirmed she is quitting ‘The X-Files’.

The actress had previously hinted that the current 11th season of the sci-fi drama – in which she has starred as FBI agent Dana Scully since 1993 – would be her last in the role, and during a panel at the 2018 Winter TCA Tour last month, she confirmed her decision.

“It’s time for me to hang up Scully’s hat. It just is. I’m finished and that’s the end of that.”

Anderson also admitted she had originally only agreed to return for the six-episode revival of the show in 2017, but said she is ”hugely grateful” for the opportunity to have played the iconic character for over two decades.

“I arrived at the decision before we did the previous six, but I was really curious. I felt that the previous six was going to be it. It was dipping our toe back in again … and getting to play these wonderful characters again. I think as [series creator] Chris [Carter] has said himself that short stack of episodes felt like we were leaning how to walk again and that this season of 10 feels like the pace is up and we’re running. I wouldn’t necessarily have been happy if those six were how we said goodbye.

There’s lots of things that I want to do in my life and in my career and it’s been an extraordinary opportunity and extraordinary character and I am hugely grateful.”

The show’s 11th season began airing on January 3, and also stars David Duchovny as FBI agent Fox Mulder.

Daily Juice: Sue Perkins Makes Gillian Anderson Squirm With Epic Lesbian Joke

Sue Perkins hosted the BAFTAs this weekend, and cracked a joke we can all relate too.

Introducing the next category, Perkins joked:

Next up we have the award for mini-series. I like my mini-series like I like my relationships; dramatic, intense and with Gillian Anderson in them.”


Lea DeLaria has been talking what’s next for Big Boo and what to expect from the rest of the ladies Orange Is the New Black Season 5. (POP Sugar)

You will be gobsmacked by it, and audiences are going to lose their minds. Season four was on every critic’s list as the number one thing on television last year. . . . So when I say season five is better than season four, people are going to go, “What?” It is. I cannot figure out how we do it or how our writers are able to keep this show so fresh, so interesting, so weird, so unique, so amazing, informative, and life-changing season after season after season. Amazing.”

Master of None star Lena Waithe says she thinks people really love her character on the show, because she’s an anomaly. (Broadly)

I don’t think people really see women that look like her on television. I also think I have a very unique way of walking through the world, a unique cadence, in terms of the way I carry myself. I think people really look at me and appreciate the character which I’m really grateful for, because you never know. … The biggest thing is that there aren’t many characters out there like myself, so I think because it’s me, it’s like a breath of fresh air, which is kind of cool.”

Gillian Anderson, Nicola Adams And A Host Of Other Celebrities ‘Dare to Swear’ At Mental illness

Mental health research charity MQ has teamed up with Channel 4 and launched a star-studded campaign featuring actor Gillian Anderson and boxer Nicola Adams to encourage people to give a **** about mental health.

The powerful spot illustrates how the power of science and the collective will of society has proved the impossible can be made possible, however daunting the task.

Created by Pablo, the campaign looks to challenge perceptions of mental illness, moving from simple awareness and understanding to striving to find new and innovative solutions to the problem.

Anderson and Adams, as well as Melanie C and TV presenters Julia Bradbury and Cherry Healey, star in the accompanying print, outdoor and digital campaign shot by Matt Holyoak.

The dramatic black and white photos are accompanied by the text,

Mental illness in young people. Thinking nothing can be done is utter ****”.

Pablo executive creative director, Tim Snape, explained

Our profanity-themed proposition of ‘we swear to take on mental illness if you swear to help’ came from the utter frustration and shock that you feel after finding out three children in every class room will have a diagnosable mental illness and yet we’re not investing enough finding out why. We hope the campaign is empowering and hard-hitting enough to make an impact, in the same way that MQ will make an impact on mental illness.”

The campaign will be extended next week when MQ will encourage people to support the initiative by creating their own version of the posters and share them on social media with the hashtag #WeSwear.

The New Trailer For Season 3 Of ‘The Fall’ Show’s Gillian Anderson In Deep Water Again.

‘The Fall’ BBC2’s awesome serial killer drama is set to return to our screens very soon and if the new trailer is anything to go by, Serial killer Paul Spector (played by Jamie Dornan) is still tormenting our favourite detective.

In the last two seasons, Gillian Anderson’s character, Stella Gibson, lived and breathed in her quest to capture a serial killer that always seemed one step ahead of her.

Not only do we follow her professional career as she unearths the evidence against him, we also get to see her complex love life. Which during the last two seasons have included a lesbian kiss and an invitation to a female colleague to spend the night with her. Alas for us though, the pathologist, Archie (played by Reed Smith) declines the offer, despite appearing that she might have been up for it at one point.


Gillian’s sexuality has been called into question before when she admitted having had a two-year lesbian relationship during her late teens. She said that other lesbian relationships followed but they were more the exception than the rule. Gillian has always remained quiet though on who these lucky ladies were, even when she was at the height of her fame in the 90’s while playing Scully in the X files.

The Fall also boasts an openly gay police officer, Danielle Ferrington (played by Niamh McGrady) and all the female characters are strong, independent women totally dedicated to their job.

They are not afraid of who they are and all the female characters are a great representation of feminism at its best.

Apparently season 3 will be the last one and it’s been stated that it will be creepier than ever. So that’s more nightmares we are going to have then, if the last two seasons are anything to go by.

Viewers are going to be left wondering after watching this trailer. Is Spector dead? After all, at the end of season 2 we did watch him struggle for breath in Stella’s arms after the police shot him. If he’s dead, why is Stella still haunted by him? Perhaps he whispered more unsettling words to her before he died, taunting her even with his last breath.

Rumours have also circulated that he has possibly escaped from custody and is continuing to kill other women. Oh, the suspense is unbearable.

Until it airs all we can do is continue to speculate and look forward to the minute Gillian Anderson shows her lovely face on our screens again.

Andy Cohen Questions Gillian Anderson About Her Bisexuality

Gillian Anderson was a guest on Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live this week, and on the show she was asked some pretty risqué questions.

Ms Anderson was not only asked about her co-stars’ kissing abilities, the rumoured “The X-Files” pay inequality, and the last time she “dipped into the lady pond.”

Her response was an honest one, but she didn’t give too much away.

Um, well actually, that article was actually about a woman I was with for about a year when I first lived in New York, when I was post-college. I think. So that would have been the last time as far as I remember.”

Watch the clip below.

Gillian Anderson’s New Film ‘Sold’ Aims To Raise Awareness On Child trafficking

11 Celebs Who’ve Opened Up About Their Lesbian Affairs

As we know, when you become a celebrity you basically sign up to have your life exposed to the public in anyway possible – right?! And that unfortunately includes their personal lives.

So why the fascination? Well because the details about their lives can make for quite a juicy read.  And sometimes their personal lives are even more interesting than their on-screen performances! 

Check out these 10 celebrities who openly admitted to lesbian affairs, well, after the paparazzi had caught them a few times!

1. Gillian Anderson

Gillian Anderson told Out Magazine that she had a relationship with a girl throughout high school! But she is more comfortable calling herself a bisexual, or perhaps using no label, because her subsequent relationships have been with dudes. She also says because she knew she was attracted to men, so she didn’t feel especially stigmatised.

Gillian Anderson

If I had thought I was 100% gay, would it have been a different experience for me? Would it have been a bigger deal if shame had been attached to it and all those things that become huge life-altering issues for youngsters in that situation? It’s possible that my attitude around it came, on some level, from knowing that I still liked boys.”

She also added in Out

I don’t think I’ve ever followed convention by choice. By default, maybe, but not by choice.” Call yourself whatever you want, Gillian — we are girl crushing so hard.

2. Courtney Love

Courtney Love

Leave it to Courtney Love to over share about everything, including her lesbian fling.

It was Kate Moss. She doesn’t care. It’s a great story for the grandchildren so … yeah. Kate wasn’t doing a lot of drugs. It was just a thing that happened in Milan in the ‘90s.

It happened and it was fun and whatever. And she talks about it and so I hope she doesn’t get mad that I outed her about it … I feel like such a kiss and tell … Kate’s great, though! Kate’s a good friend of mine.”

3. Megan Fox

Megan Fox

Megan Fox is not a lesbian, according to Megan Fox. She’s just really, really attracted to women. She opened up about her love for the ladies in an infamous GQ interview.

I decided that I was in love with this girl that worked at the Body Shop. I decided that I was going to get her to love me back, and I went out of my way to create a relationship with this girl, a stripper named Nikita … Look, I’m not a lesbian. I just think that all humans are born with the ability to be attracted to both sexes … I mean, I could see myself in a relationship with a girl—Olivia Wilde is so sexy she makes me want to strangle a mountain ox with my bare hands. She’s mesmerising. And lately I’ve been obsessed with Jenna Jameson.”

4. Hayden Panettiere


Growing up, Hayden Panettiere admitted to practicing her make out moves on her girlfriends.

It’s great to be single. It’s great to have boyfriends. Or girlfriends. There are occasions when you kiss your best friend growing up, having fun and goofing about. Like perfecting your technique.”

5. Angelina Jolie

Angelina Jolie

Angelina Jolie has ben open about her sexuality for quite some time, having had numerous encounters and relationships with women, including model and actress Jenny Shimizu.

I have loved women in the past and slept with them. I think if you love and want to pleasure a woman, particularly if you are a woman yourself, then certainly you know how to do things a certain way.”

On her relationship with Shimizu, she said

I probably would have married Jenny Shimizu if I hadn’t married [Jonny Lee Miller]. I fell in love with her the first second I saw her … she’s great. We had a lot of fun.”

6. Anna Paquin

Anna Paquin

Anna Paquin is adamantly open about her bisexuality. The actress told “Zooey” magazine in a 2009 interview…

For me, it’s not really an issue because I’m someone who believes being bisexual is actually a thing. It’s not made up. It’s not a lack of decision.”

7. Drew Barrymore

Drew Barrymore

Drew Barrymore originally came out in an interview in Contact Magazine in 2003, saying…

Do I like women sexually? Yeah, I do. Totally. I have always considered myself bisexual… I love a woman’s body. I think a woman and a woman together are beautiful, just as a man and a woman together are beautiful. Being with a woman is like exploring your own body, but through someone else.”

8. Kesha


In a bold early 2013 interview, pop star Kesha opened up about her sexuality to reporters, saying that she is not only attracted to men.

I don’t love just men,” said the singer. “I love people. It’s not about a gender. It’s just about the spirit that exudes from that other person you’re with.”

She also made a similar claim two years earlier to “Out” magazine: “I wouldn’t say I’m gay or straight -– I don’t like labelling things anyway. I just like people.”

9. Amber Rose

Amber Rose

Kanye West’s ex-girlfriend has long been perceived to be openly bisexual without actually addressing the way she identifies. In an interview with Complex magazine, the model sought to clarify the rumors:

They label me a bisexual freak stripper that fucks Kanye on a daily basis. To answer that: I’m extremely open with my sexuality. I can be in love with a woman; I can be in love with a man. I’m not into bestiality, but as far as humans go, I definitely find beauty in everybody, whether they’re heavy-set, super-skinny, if they’re white, black, Indian, Asian, Spanish. I can see beauty in anybody. I’m not into threesomes or orgies and shit like that. If I see a women and I think she’s beautiful and I like her, and she likes me back we can definitely try to be in a relationship together.”

10. Fergie


On her lesbian liaisons, Fergie said

I have had lesbian experiences in the past. But I started having sex quite late on—after I was 18. I was raised a good Catholic girl”

11. Geri Halliwell

Geri Halliwell

I guess Geri Halliwell was looking to spice up her [love] life because she also fessed up to Howard Stern that she once had sex with a woman.

I had a little lesbian thing but I’m not saying anything about it. And I don’t think the girl was a real lesbian. I’m being honest. I’m not going to describe it. I realized pretty quickly that I was not a lesbian … I don’t mind boobs but the other bit is not my cup of tea. I could never ever say who it was. It was just one of those moments. I think it is just part of experimenting. It was just a drunken moment.”

Her mystery lesbian hookup probably felt like crap after reading this.

Yes, Dana Scully is Back! Gillian Anderson Reveals Red Hair for X-Files Reboot

Prepare to get excited Scully fans – Gillian Anderson has revealed a familiar looking hairstyle on her Twitter account.

The actress teased her social media followers by posting a photo of her new red hair colour, associated with the character Dana Scully.

Covering her face with her phone, Anderson captioned the photo with an alien emoji and a lipstick kiss.

It’s only a mere three months since The X-Files revival was officially confirmed, and now the cast and crew have gathered in Vancouver to begin shooting the new series.

Anderson recently said that it will be “really weird” to return to the cult series, but that she’s looking forward to it.

Getting back to the character I’m fine with. It’ll be fun, it’ll be all of us back together again but older and wiser. I know we will make the most of it and it’ll be really weird. It’ll probably be more fun and more exhausting at the same time. I’m psyched and I’m still in denial.”

Creator Chris Carter will be back at the helm for the six new episodes, joined by returning stars David Duchovny (as Mulder) and Gillian Anderson who has already reverted from her preferred blonde to Scully’s famous red hair colour…

Why are so Many Female Celebrities Opting to Not Label Themselves Bisexual?

Last week, when launching her Happy Hippie Foundation campaign to help homeless LGBT youth, Miley Cyrus told the Associated Press that not all her relationships have been “straight or heterosexual”, but no B word in play.

Raven-Symoné is also another women who does not want to be labelled. When asked by Oprah if was gay, Raven gave a very careful answer. “I don’t want to be labelled ‘gay,'” Raven says. “I want to be labelled ‘a human who loves humans.'”

Then there is also Gillian Anderson who also came out as having had a relationship with another woman after the death of an ex-lover. She told the Times newspaper she that she is “aware of the need for being open about fluid sexuality” but has not yet called herself bisexual.


The Oscar-nominated Maria Bello came out in a New York Times op-ed she titled Coming Out as a Modern Family. She openly wrote about falling in love and beginning a relationship with her best female friend, but refrained from using the ‘B’ word and instead called herself a, “whatever.”

Later she told the Huffington Post,

Things shift and change and it’s fluid, and I think the younger generation is knowing that more and [is] excited about it. It’s not static — life just isn’t — and we have to create better labels to embrace the beauty of who we are.”

Maria Bello 05

In 2014 the ex-Spice Girl, Mel B, told the Guardian newspaper:

People call me lesbian, bisexual or heterosexual, but I know who’s in my bed and that’s it. I have a huge libido and a great sex life… Well, I did have a four-year relationship with a woman. But I’ve been very happily married for seven years to a penis. Ha ha! An amazing guy.”

So why are so many women opting to call themselves Bisexual? Is it that they are simply pansexual, and not limiting their sexual choice to biological sex, gender, or gender identity? Or is it that labels are simply too oppressive?

I am from a generation where stating who I am and who I am dating was about pride. I am proud to call myself a gay woman – a lesbian. And my friends will equally address themselves as such – be it bisexual, queer or gay.

So why the uncomfortable shift to not label? We have seen many celebrities be burnt with announcing they’re bisexual, but ending up with a man – Jessie J managed to cause so much offence when she stated she was no longer bisexual.

The Sex and the City star, Cynthia Nixon, once told the Daily Beast…

I don’t pull out the ‘bisexual’ word because nobody likes the bisexuals. Everybody likes to dump on the bisexuals.”


Then there are others who champion their bisexuality. Anna Paquin went to town on Larry King when questioned her about her sexuality during an interview.

“Are you a non-practicing bisexual,” King asked her.

“Well, I am married to my husband [Stephen Moyer], and we are happily monogamously married,” she replied.

“But you were bisexual?” King asked.

“Well, I don’t think it’s a past tense thing,” she continued. “Are you still straight if you are with somebody?

“If you were to break up with them or if they were to die, it doesn’t prevent your sexuality from existing. It doesn’t really work like that.”

Anna Paquin

So does refusing to adopt the bisexual label contributed further to bi invisibility?

No stranger to the label debate is Australian actress and founder of feminist website herself.com, Caitlin Stasey. When interviewed last year, she stated she recently decided to steer clear of labelling her sexuality.

Because if I say I’m bisexual, people say it doesn’t exist, and if I say I’m gay, people say I’m belittling the plight of all other women who consider themselves gay. I found a word that I identified with, I was told I couldn’t have it, and now I just think fuck it. I’m attracted to whom I’m attracted to.”


Some of us live in a countries where same-sex relationships are still not legally recognised – where being a part of the LGBT community is still considered “other”.

So in one sense the coverage is good – it sparks conversations that hopefully help people realise sexuality lies on a spectrum, and where you fall is your place to label if you feel the need to do so.

Maybe one day bisexuality will be the norm. Or perhaps we’re slowly but surely entering an age, led by the politically correct Tumblr generation, in which we recognise, accept, and are no longer fearful of sexuality.

And beyond the labelling? Maybe one day we’ll wake to the news of a famous actress admitting she’s had relationships with many people, no mention of gender.

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.”

Gillian Anderson to Write a ‘Revolutionary’ Self-help Book for Women

The Hollywood Reporter has learned that former (and future) X-Files star Gillian Anderson is set to write a self-help guide for women titled WE.

Anderson who stars on the British crime drama The Fall, is teaming up with journalist/activist Jennifer Nadel to write a book targeted at women (and anyone who identifies themselves as female).

WE, which publisher Atria is describing as “revolutionary,” will hit shelves (both physical and digital) in 8th March 2016, which of course is International Women’s Day.

Anderson explains that her and Nadel’s book will aim to, “Provide a path to inner freedom and happiness.”

call-out to all women around the world – and by women I include girls, transgender, anyone who identifies themselves as being intrinsically female…that we need to stick together and stand up for each other and not compete against each other.”

Nadel adds…

There is a point at which everything intersects – the psychological, the spiritual, the material, and the political. WE is about taking a journey to that point, and when we reach it suddenly everything becomes possible.”

Anderson has been a champion for women’s right supporting reproductive freedom, human rights and raising money for neurofibromatosis research, a disease that killed her brother. Nadel, her new co-author, wrote a book about Sara Thornton, a British woman who was convicted of the 1989 killing of her abusive husband and whose case became a flashpoint in the debate about how the courts should deal with domestic violence. She’s also been an activist for families who had a relative die in police custody and was a Green Party candidate for parliament.

It’s Official – The X-Files is Returning to Our TV Screens with David Duchovny & Gillian Anderson at the Helm

It’s official – No more government cover-ups or cigarette smoking men – The X-Files is returning to TV – hurrah!


13 years after its original run, The X-Files is coming back, with FOX ordering a six-episode ‘event series’ that will see Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully investigate new supernatural mysteries.

Expected to arrive in 2015, the series will be helmed by original X-Files writer Chris Carter.

“I think of it as a 13-year commercial break. The good news is the world has only gotten that much stranger, a perfect time to tell these six stories.”

Originally premiering in 1993, The X-Files won 16 Emmys and five Golden Globes, with its creepier episodes (e.g season 4’s ‘Home’ *shudder*) still being talked about to this day.

A return for the show has been mooted for a while and rumours resurfaced earlier this week.

Duchovny previously said he was “f*cking overjoyed” at the idea.

FOX CEOs Gary Newman and Dana Walden said,

“We had the privilege of working with Chris on all nine seasons of The X-Files – one of the most rewarding creative experiences of our careers – and we couldn’t be more excited to explore that incredible world with him again.

The X-Files was not only a seminal show for both the studio and the network, it was a worldwide phenomenon that shaped pop culture – yet remained a true gem for the legions of fans who embraced it from the beginning. Few shows on television have drawn such dedicated fans as The X-Files, and we’re ecstatic to give them the next thrilling chapter of Mulder and Scully they’ve been waiting for.

No premiere date has been announced, but production will begin this summer.

Gillian Anderson’s drama The Fall will return for a third season, and plans to finally revealing the fate of the serial killer played by Jamie Dornan.

The second series of the thriller, ended like the first, on a cliffhanger, (spoiler alert) with Dornan’s Paul Spector lying shot in the arms of detective Stella Gibson (Anderson).

Both stars will return for a new five-part run of the Belfast-based drama which the BBC, announcing its recommission on Tuesday, said would bring the story to a close. The smart, scary crime drama is likely to air next year.

The Fall

The series is so well written, and the storyline is able to show the feminist cat and misogynistic mouse game between Gibson and Spector to perfection.

However, the highlight for us is representation of Anderson’s complicated Stella. She is a woman who is smart, sexual and strong. Her sexual fluidity between men and women, has also been explored throughout the series and the show is not shy in portraying her power.

Anderson, who is also one of its producers, said at the programme launch last year that she was keen to bring the character back for a third time.

“Who she is and everything she stands for and how she operates – I find that very compelling and I don’t feel like I have really seen that before.  

She makes it very clear how she feels about violence against women, how these women are represented and how they are perceived.

She is a supporter of women and women being treated respectfully and she doesn’t mince words. It’s in her bones. I like that about her.”

Anderson is also in contention for an Olivier Awards, the British theater’s most prestigious prizes. She is up for Best Actress for her lauded turn in A Streetcar Named Desire. Also in the running is Kristin Scott Thomas for her performance of Electra; and veterans Imelda Staunton (in Good People) and Penelope Wilton (in Taken At Midnight).

Anderson fans will be happy to hear, the actress is also set to play a key role in the third season on Hannibal.

First Look At Hannibal Season 3 And Gillian Anderson Has A Key Role

Although you will have to wait until summer for the main course, this video should at least give a little taste of things to come in the third season of NBC’s acclaimed, cult-favorite thriller.


In just two short seasons, Hannibal has made a name for itself.

Why? Well, one, it’s incredibly violent, two the twisting storyline, and three it’s incredibly well cast. Hugh Dancy and Mads Mikkelsen are tremendous as the leads, and the supporting cast –  Laurence Fishburne, Caroline Dhavernas, Anna Chlumsky, Raúl Esparaza, Katherine Isabelle, and Michael Pitt – are equally talented.

For the past 2 seasons Gillian Anderson, has played a minor, but important role – playing psychotherapist to Hannibal’s psychopath. However, in season 3 she’ll be bumped up to “series regular” status, with the new season picking up a year after the final moments of ‘Mizumono‘, which left viewers with the sight of Lecter and Dr Du Maurier jetting off to destinations unknown.

In the new trailer we see Will Graham (Darcy) on the hunt for Hannibal Lecter (Mikkelsen) in Florence, Italy. We also glimpse Anderson – yes!

The third season is expected to take elements from Thomas Harris’ Hannibal novels, including Hannibal Rising and Red Dragon. According to showrunner Bryan Fuller, the series will mash up elements from the books in a unique way—including revealing a very different origin story for the good doctor.

We look forward to seeing how Gillian Anderson role fits into this storyline.


Why ‘The Fall’ Should Be Your New Favourite TV Show

Winter is a dreadful time for TV viewers. While Autumn gave us a glut of great television (here’s looking at you How to Get Away With Murder), the Winter hiatus of our favourite TV shows means we’ll have to spend a few chilly weeks without.

So, save we all freeze our toes off, forced to watch Elf a few hundred times over Christmas, it’s time to recommend a new show. Called The Fall, this gripping crime thriller is now in its second series. Set in Northern Ireland, it focuses on a serial killer and one woman’s hunt to catch him.

Mighty good stuff. Read

reasons to watch the show below.

1 Gillian Anderson Plays the Lead

Coming out as bisexual in 2012, Gillian Anderson already has a massive queer (and female) fanbase. However, in The Fall her portrayal of Stella Gibson, a no-nonsense detective who pulls no punches, will win her legions more.

Not only is Gibson a certified badass, but she also enjoys casual sex too. Very often on television we get either/or – we can have a powerful woman who’s a lone wolf or a woman who likes sex but gets burnt too many times – so to see Gibson be a wonderful combination of both is actually quite refreshing.

2. Archie Panjabi’s In It

When Archie Panjabi announced earlier this year that she would be leaving The Good Wife (and therefore bisexual character Kalinda would no longer be on the show) many queer ladies shed several thousand tears. But on The Fall we get another chance to see her stellar acting chops.

Here, Panjabi plays Reed Smith who likes leather jackets and riding her motorbike. A pathologist, she works alongside Gibson studying crime scenes and dead bodies meaning we see her quite a bit (she’s in four of five episodes of the first series and makes a return in the second).

Also worth noting that although in the first series Reed is portrayed as straight, a recent episode from the second series featured a kiss between her and Stella. Having not seen it I can’t say what this means for her identity but it’s certainly something.

3. A Gay Main Character

Yes, although Panjabi’s Reed may or may not be L, G or B (again, this is all per the first season), Niamh McGrady’s character Danielle Ferrington is.

The right hand constable to Detective Gibson, Danielle’s queerness isn’t really a big deal. She mentions that she’s gay in one of the last few episodes of the first series and Gibson seems to be fine with it.
So far, Danielle hasn’t gotten a love interest, which is a little disappointing. However, it also means that you can ship unashamedly and with no guilt whatsoever, so that’s sort of a plus point!

4. It’s Incredibly Creepy

Not that you’d expect a show about a serial killer who preys on young women to be anything else, mind. But really, The Fall is one of the most gripping, thrilling and terrifying shows on TV at the moment.

Killer Paul Spector invades the homes of his unsuspecting victims, and kills them coldly. Many have noted that the the show alludes to sexual violence too which is grim but makes the killings all the more horrific.

It also means that the show will have you watching from between the cracks in your fingers, so expect that when you watch.

5. It’s On Netflix

Now in it’s second series on BBC, UK readers will be able to catch all of the episodes from the second series on BBC iPlayer (do a bit of digging online and you’ll be able to find the first series hosted by other means). It’s US viewers who get the luck of the draw though, as The Fall is available on US Netflix.

Those with a Netflix subscription and a US Internet connection can fire up the app or the website search for ‘The Fall’ and stream every episode from the first series.

Gillian Anderson Speaks Out About Her Late Lesbian Lover

Gillian Anderson has chosen to open up further about her previous lesbian affair.

The actress – who first discussed her gay relationship in 2012 – was in high school when the two dated “for a long time”, but thought it was important not “hide” what happened, following her death in 2011.

She told the Mail on Sunday newspaper’s Even magazine:

“She had died of a brain tumour a year earlier and I had never really spoken about her. She was a beautiful person who was very meaningful in my life and I wanted to honour her instead of hiding my experience. There was a point years after we split when she phoned to tell me to say she had been offered a large amount of money to sell a photograph of us together and had chosen not to do it.”

Gillian Anderson

She added:

“It was a very big decision because she really could have used the money. I felt it was very important to take the onus off that type of relationship, to say this happened and I feel no shame about it.”

Gillian Anderson

Back in 2012, Anderson told Out Magazine:

“I was in a relationship with a girl for a long time when I was in high school. You know, I’m old enough that I can talk about that… If I had thought I was 100% gay, would it have been a difference experience for me? Would it have been a bigger deal if shame had been attached to it and all those things that become huge life-altering issues for youngsters in that situation? It’s possible that my attitude around it came, on some level, from knowing that I still liked boys.”
