After more than twenty years being associated on television and at the movies with her fictional FBI persona Dana Scully, actress Gillian Anderson is leaving the role for good. Last week during the Television Critics Association tour in Los Angeles, at a press conference (pictured above) devoted to the current eleventh season of the show, Anderson gave her definitive word on the subject. "This is it for me,” she said. “I'm really serious. I've done this now for decades, and it's time for me to hang up Scully's hat. It just is. I have so much respect for these guys, and I have respect for Scully, and it's really sad. But I'm finished, and that's the end of that."
