Added video of the interview
There's agent Dana Scully of "The X-Files" and Blanche Dubois in "A Streetcar Named Desire." Also Lily Bart in "The House of Mirth," with a little Bedelia du Maurier, aka, Hannibal Lecter's shrink, thrown in.
Of all the period costumes and unraveling of twisted psyches that Gillian Anderson has taken on, she likes her Stella Gibson the most. Gibson being the enigmatic detective superintendent sent from London to Northern Ireland on the critically acclaimed serial-killer series "The Fall," aka the thing Jamie Dornan finds himself in the middle of as "Fifty Shades of Grey" madness takes tighter hold.
Anderson had little to say about Dornan in a recent interview, begging off because the two didn't physically work with each other on "The Fall" during the first season. They do a little the second time around as Dornan's woman-killer, ex-family man Paul Spector, goes on the run.
Netflix drops the second season of the taut, Belfast-set drama Friday.
"Jamie Dornan wasn't Mr. Fifty Shades of Grey" when the slow-paced, cat-and-mouse show began on Irish television and the BBC, Anderson said. "Jamie Dornan was cast after having done very little, and we cast him before 'Fifty Shades of Grey,' so that's what our starting point was. This was a fresh face of somebody who was clearly a very good actor."
