'X-Files' Star Gillian Anderson Returns to TV on New NBC Series EW
Gillian Anderson, who starred on "The X-Files," will be a part of a new drama series on NBC, reports EW.com's Inside TV.
Anderson will appear in a multiple-episode arc on “Hannibal” as Dr. Bedelia Du Maurier, the therapist for Dr. Hannibal Lecter, the story notes.
"Every therapist needs their own head examined and we are ecstatic that Gillian Anderson has chosen 'Hannibal' to mark her return to American television after 10 years to portray Dr. Lecter’s personal psychiatrist,” said writer and producer Bryan Fuller in a statement.
Anderson has appeared in miniseries such as Encore's recent "Moby Dick" adaptation and British series such as "The Fall" since "The X-Files" went off the air in 2002.
