Biography


American actress, best known for her action as FBI Agent Dana Scully in the American television series "The X-Files", Gillian Leigh Anderson was born on August 9, 1968 in Chicago, Illinois, USA. She is the eldest daughter of the married couple Edward and Rosemary Anderson. She has one younger sister named Zoe Anderson and one younger brother Aaron who suffers from neurofibromatosis for whom Anderson has done work to encourage government to increase funding for research.

Anderson spent her childhood grew up in London until her family moved to Grand Rapids, Michigan when she was 11 years old. There she attended City High School in Grand Rapids, a program for gifted students, where with her "different" English accent and background that seemed "weird” among the American Midwest, she was named the "Class Clown" and "Most Bizarre Girl." Moreover, she was also voted as the "Most Likely to be Arrested" by her high school classmates, and was, in fact, arrested on graduation night for gluing the locks shut at her high school.
