With season 11 of The X-Files premiering on Jan. 3, Anderson’s star ceremony came two days before the airing of the second episode.

Another career achievement Anderson received was an Outstanding Lead actress in a Miniseries or a Movie Emmy nomination in ‘06 for her role as Lady Honoria Dedlock in the BBC adaptation of the Charles Dickens novel Bleak House.

In addition to acting, Anderson has co-authored three science fiction novels with Jeff Rovin; A Vision of Fire, A Dream of Ice and The Sound of Seas and the self-help guidebook with Jennifer Nadel, WE: A Manifesto for Women Everywhere.

Since Mark was four years old he has always loved the horror genre, even when his mother would be a good parent and not let him watch such films. It was when he would sneak into the Horror section at the video store called Tommy K's that he would see all of the VHS covers of classics like Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street.

During his time as a journalism major and news staff writer at Southern CT State University, he had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing paranormal investigator Lorraine Warren before a seminar in 2009 at the Lyman Center on campus.
