Gillian Anderson, best known for her tenure as Agent Sculley on Fox’s "The X-Files," will be taking on a new TV role that should be nothing like her ‘X-Files’ character, reports Reuters.
Anderson will play Miss Haversham in the latest incarnation of Charles Dickens’ "Great Expectations," which is being adapted into a miniseries by the BBC, the story reports.
Anderson has experience with this type of material. She starred in 2005 in "Bleak House," also for the BBC and also penned by Dickens. That production appeared on PBS in 2006.
Also cast in "Great Expectations" are Ray Winstone, David Suchet, Mark Addy and, as the main character, Pip, Douglas Booth.
