'X-Files'πŸ‘©πŸΌ‍πŸ’Ό Star Gillian Anderson Receives a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame

Gillian, best known for her role as FBI agent Dana Scully, praised that character during her acceptance speech on Monday.

"A woman who wasn't just the object of man's desire, but a strong-willed, smart, brave woman who was career driven and fiercely independent. The combination of (X Files creator Chris Carter's) creation and whatever rookie, naive, terrified, determined will I brought to the table manifested a young woman yet to be depicted on TV.

"And as the fan response would soon prove a desperately needed role model for women of all ages, everywhere, who it turns out were simply not seeing themselves represented."

She also thanked her costar David Duchovny "for your companionship and friendship through the years. I could not have wished for a more perfect, platonic partner to spend 25 years of my life. Who'd have guessed that when we sat sides by side in the hallway at Fox during that ghastly audition process, 25 years on we'd not only still be filming, but that we'd be permanent concrete neighbours on the Hollywood Walk of Fame".
