Emmy-winning actress Gillian Anderson has been honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, which was unveiled on Monday, Jan. 8.

Anderson’s star is the 2,625th since the completion of the Walk of Fame in 1961.

Known best for her co-headlining role of FBI Special Agent Dana Scully in the science fiction series The X-Files, Anderson received Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series Emmy nominations from ‘96 to ‘99, winning in ‘97 for her performance in the series. She won the Golden Globe award for Best Actress the same year.

Also starring David Duchovny as Special Agent Fox Mulder, The X-Files initially ran on Fox Television from 1993 to 2002, had two theatrical feature films in ’98 and ’08 respectively, followed by a revival series serving as the show’s tenth season in 2016.

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.
