Gillian Anderson, who plays Special Agent Scully in cult sci-fi American television series The X Files, has reportedly been house-hunting in Notting Hill - which would tie in nicely with her previously announced plans to appear on the West End stage. In interviews last July, Anderson confirmed that this current season of The X Files would be her last (the series completes its ninth and final season in the US this May with a two-part episode) and that she aimed to appear in a West End production sometime this summer. It hasn't been confirmed what that might be, but one possibility is the planned Natural Nylon revival of Chekhov's Three Sisters in a new translation by Christopher Hampton. While currently keeping mum on specifics, director Sean Mathias has confirmed that he's made casting offers for the leads to two English and one American actress. Anderson's last major stage appearance was a decade ago in a US production of Christopher Hampton's The Philanthropist. She has also previously appeared on stage in benefit performances of Eve Ensler's The Vagina Monologues and is due to host a Richard Rodgers centenary charity gala at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane in May. On the big screen, Anderson’s credits include The House of Mirth and Playing by Heart.
