Gillian Anderson Appreciation List

Inspired by @minabird list appreciation of David Duchovny. To be honest I'm surprised I haven't made one before.

    Dana Scully
    The X-Files is 100% responsible for my downward spiral into the love of Gillian Anderson. Dana Scully is so important. She shows that religion, science, and skepticism can go together. She's a doctor, and FBI agent, a mother, a partner. She is πŸ’―

    Stella Gibson
    I always want to make everyone I know watch The Fall. I've probably watched both seasons at least 3 times. Stella has a degree in anthropology which makes my heart flutter. She likes men and women. She's definitely a feminist. And still a mystery.

    Bedelia Du Maurier
    Was she slightly drunk all the time? Maybe. Does she have questionable morals? Yes. Was Gillian absolutely fabulous and completely gorgeous? Always. Thank you Hannibal.

    She speaks with two accents πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡¬πŸ‡§
    She's got an American accent and her British accent from growing up in both places. I love both.
  5. β€’
    She wrote a trilogy!
    It's my next book to read. Like oh my gosh I'm so excited.
  6. β€’
    She talks about her anxiety and panic attacks
    Which is very relatable.
  7. β€’
    The Gilly box
    Because she so small compared to David.
  8. β€’
    She swears a lot
    This is one of my favorite things because I also thoroughly enjoy swearing.
  9. β€’
    Her kids have awesome names
    Piper, Oscar, and Felix. Props for the sweet names Gillian!
  10. β€’
    She's really funny
    Like if you watch almost any interview she can be quite hilarious!
  11. β€’
    She does charity things
    I know about the Neurofibromatosis charities she works with because of her brother and SA-YES which she co-founded. I'm sure there are more.

    Also she just gorgeous. I would probably fight anyone who said otherwise.
