Johnny English Reborn star Gillian Anderson talks about putting family life ahead of her work and how she’s would be up for making an X-Files movie.

How did you start acting?

I didn’t particularly like school very much. I didn’t really feel like I fitted in or belonged. I used to shave the side of my hair with a razor blade and pierce my nose. I was listening to bands such as Circle Jerks, Butthole Surfers and Bauhaus. However, once I started acting in a community play, a lightbulb went on – I felt quite sure of myself and about the direction I was going in. Then, when I decided I wanted to go on to college, I asked for suggestions of where one should go if one wanted to be an actor, and somebody told me about the Goodman Theatre School in Chicago. So I sent away for an application. That was the only place I auditioned. I have a tendency to be really naive about things but it worked out because I got accepted.

Your MI7 Agent character in Johnny English Reborn, Pamela, is pretty serious. Did you purposefully play the role straight, like your character, Dana Scully, in The X-Files?

Yes, exactly. In fact, it was very similar to The X-Files, ironically. In order for the jokes to work, it is not appropriate for the character to witness the extent of things taking place. In The X-Files, my character is the disbeliever, so I was used to being the one who is looking in the wrong direction or being out of the jokes, so to speak.

You’ve acted in more TV and independent films lately. Was that a conscious decision?

Yeah, I’ve made a decision to put my family life first, so I don’t do something that takes me away from them for three months at a time. I like the idea of popping in and doing a few weeks here. However, there are only a few things that will allow for that kind of schedule. I’m not terribly ambitious. There is a part of me that takes what comes. I don’t read Variety, I don’t do any of that sort of stuff.

You live in London now – do you miss the Los Angeles weather?

No, I actually don’t. People often talk about the London weather in a negative way but then I lived in Vancouver when we were shooting The X-Files, which was incredibly cold.

Is there any truth to the rumours that another X-Files movie will be made?

I don’t know. There is talk of it but I don’t know what that will equate to. I’ve said it from the beginning that if it’s something they pull together, I’ll be on board.

The Prince of Wales is planning to work with someone to improve his speech-making, says Gillian Anderson, the star of The X-Files.

The Prince of Wales has been giving speeches for 40 years, but he is not too proud to ask for assistance in improving his technique.

Prince Charles met Gillian Anderson, the star of The X-Files, at a service of thanksgiving at Westminster Abbey to mark the 200th anniversary of Charles Dickens’s birth.

“His Royal Highness was saying how he was actually interested in reading and practising reading himself – reading out loud from Dickens and other literature that is,” says the actress. “So he was thinking about working with somebody to improve and be more confident with his public speaking with regards to literature.”

Speaking at the WilliamVintage pre-Baftas dinner at the St Pancras Renaissance hotel, Anderson insists that the “somebody” will not be her. “I don’t think he was asking me,” she says modestly.

No one, as far as I know, has come to the Berlinale in search of Gillian Anderson, the strawberry-blonde vixen who set millions of hearts aflutter — and not just male ones — with her role in the supernaturally beloved ’90s show The X-Files. But Anderson has surprised those of us who love her by showing up — in small roles, but still — in two films here, James Marsh’s Shadow Dancer and Ursula Meier’s Sister. In Shadow Dancer, a thriller set in early-‘90s Belfast, she’s a British secret-service officer who squares off against a colleague (played by Clive Owen). In Sister, she’s the well-heeled patron of a tony Swiss ski resort — and a mom — who befriends a young thief and rapscallion who barely knows what it means to be a child.

Anderson hasn’t really been in hiding. She was one of the best things — perhaps the only good thing — in last year’s Johnny English Reborn, and she recently played Miss Havisham in the British TV adaptation of Great Expectations. She chooses her roles carefully and doesn’t seem particularly attracted to big Hollywood vehicles — though it’s more likely that Hollywood isn’t particularly interested in her, which is certainly its loss.

There are plenty of movies to parse and examine here at the Berlinale, but at dinner last night with some colleagues (who happened to be guys), Anderson came up in the conversation, and we just looked at one another: “Gosh! Isn’t she something?” is the gist of what we said. Perhaps we love her more because she shows up so infrequently and so fleetingly, like a ginger comet. Her role in Shadow Dancer is small and tokenlike, but it’s interesting for its metallic coldness, not a quality we usually associate with Anderson. Then again, maybe it’s really just a mirror angle of the clinical skepticism she brought to the role of Dana Scully in The X-Files: She’s good at playing characters who can turn the warmth off when it gets in the way of the goal at hand, and in Shadow Dancer, she plays a character who’s all about goals.

In Sister, Anderson isn’t strawberry blonde but truly blonde, and the first glimpse we get of her is a mane of glorious, rich-girl hair. At first I could see only the oblique planes of her face and, not knowing she was in the movie, I thought to myself, “Could it be…?” Her role is small but potent: Her character, skiing at the resort with her own kids, meets the young thief Simon (played, beautifully, by a kid actor named Kacey Mottet Klein), and the two are immediately charmed by each other. He pretends to be a the son of the resort’s owner, when really he’s a mighty mite of a hustler who scrambles to make a living for himself and his sister (Léa Seydoux).

Anderson scrutinizes his face as he advertises this fanciful false background — you can see, in this tiny but potent scene, that she’s amused by him and yet somehow, instinctively, she also feels protective. It’s not that she doesn’t believe his tale (she seems to buy it all); it’s that her better judgment tells her that this kid is in need of something, and though she can’t be the one to provide it, she grants him the kindest gift she can: She takes him seriously, reacting to him as if he were the miniature adult he’s trying so desperately to be, meeting him on his own scrappy turf.

That’s a lot to pack into a few small scenes, and it’s a bit frustrating that her character’s role in the drama isn’t better worked out — her final encounter with Simon doesn’t feel true to the woman we met earlier. On the whole, the picture is unevenly worked out, but it’s ultimately touching, thanks to the bittersweet grace notes scattered throughout. Anderson is one of those grace notes; her presence is as subtle as a sigh, but it’s the kind that sticks with you long after the credits roll.
