The First Lady cast

Gillian Anderson is moving from playing one historical figure to another.

The X-Files star, who recently earned her sixth career Golden Globe nomination for her work as Margaret Thatcher on Netflix’s acclaimed costume drama The Crown, will soon suit up to play Eleanor Roosevelt in The First Lady (working title), a new series coming to Showtime that already has Viola Davis and Michelle Pfeiffer on board to star. The show is described as “a revelatory reframing of American leadership, told through the lens of the women at the heart of the White House.” Read More »

Wild Bird a Wonder Story Gillian Anderson

Gillian Anderson is joining the Wonder Cinematic Universe.

The former X-Files star has been cast as a lead of the forthcoming White Bird: A Wonder Story, which is not quite a sequel but meant to be a “creative companion” to the 2017 film Wonder.

Previous seasons of the ornate monarchy melodrama were not without judgment or criticisms for its main cast of flawed characters, but in season 4, Elizabeth II and family descend to their lowest point as the royals sets about destroying their newest member, Diana Spencer. It makes for a bleak, but fascinating, season of television.
