The X-Files star dazzled in silver at the red carpet ceremony.
Gillian Anderson has been honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on January 8th in L.A.
Wearing a stunning silver slip dress by designer Sophia Kahhe, the 49-year old paid homage to the role that saw her gain instant stardom as the 'fiercely independent' Dana Scully in the cult tv series, The X-Files which still continues on with the 2016 revival.
Anderson credits her big break to luck more than ambition. “I was so green at the beginning, and so young, and I was just exploring,” she says. “I showed up and hit my mark and learned my lines and was pulled into this vortex of this hit show. It was my first professional, proper gig, and it was a cannon of sorts.”
Anderson says, "I always will be, very grateful to Scully for the impact that she’s had both on her own career and on a number of young women around the world, many of whom decided to go into the fields of science or law enforcement after seeing that world opened to them by the show."
