If the truth is still out there after Season Eleven of Fox’s The X-Files airs, Gillian Anderson won’t be around to locate it! The actress- who has played Dana Scully since the show premiered in 1993- recently told TV Insider that the upcoming event series will be her last.
Anderson first suggested that she may exit the popular series during a Q&A at New York Comic Con this October. Her newest statement to TV Insider is even more definitive:
“I’ve said from the beginning this is it for me. I was a bit surprised by people’s [shocked] reaction to my announcement…because my understanding was that this was a single season.”
