UPDATED: Gillian Anderson is no stranger to Reddit — the prolific actress most recently seen on NBC’s “Crisis” and “Hannibal” has conducted several Ask Me Anything interviews over the past few years. But apparently she sometimes checks in on threads related to the show that first introduced her talents.
A recent Reddit post, featuring a photoshopped depiction of what user thepizzapeople deemed to be “My favorite X-Files episode formula,” has attracted over 1,400 comments — one of which appears to be from the actress herself:
If, in proud Agent Scully tradition, you’re skeptical about the verity of this post, note that it comes from her official account (which she used for past Reddit postings). She’s also previously mentioned that “Bad Blood” is one of her favorite episodes.
Unrelated to Reddit, but still exciting for Anderson fans: On September 16, Fathom Events will be screening in theaters the London stage production of “A Streetcar Named Desire,” in which she stars as Blanche Dubois.
