Special Agent Dana Scully
Gillian Anderson


She is dedicated to objectivity and common sense, but still open to extreme possibilities. Special Agent Dana Scully is not only a medical doctor with a specialty in forensics, but a firm believer in reason who thinks there is a scientific explanation behind every X-file. Against her parents' wishes, Scully went from medical school to Quantico, where she taught for two years at the FBI's training academy. From there she was assigned to work with Fox Mulder and the X-Files, with the strong implication that she was to debunk them.
Over the years that they have worked together, her trust in his instincts and her respect for his integrity have eroded her skepticism. She finds her faith in a scientific and orderly universe constantly challenged by the cases she pursues with Mulder. Far from being a spy for the bureaucrats who hinder their work, Scully is a full partner in the X-Files, focusing on assembling the hard evidence that will prove the truth is out there.

Now the recipient of two SAG Awards, a Golden Globe Award, and an Emmy nomination for Best Actress in a Drama Series, Gillian Anderson's first big break came when she was cast in a starring role in FOX's THE X-FILES in September 1993.

She also appeared in Christopher Hampton's "The Philanthropist" at the Long Wharf Theater. Her love of theater began in high school, when she participated in community theater productions.
Later, Anderson studied with the National Theatre of Great Britain at Cornell University in Ithaca, N.Y., and then at the Goodman Theater School at Chicago's DePaul University, where she obtained her B.F.A. degree.
