London (ANI): Gillian Anderson may refuse to star in the X Files sequel, if reports are to be believed. The 40-year-old, who appeared in the film The X Files: I Want To Believe last year, is said to be looking to putting herself out of the typecast.
"It took a while for Gillian to establish a career for herself outside the X Files and she's now enjoying her acting more than ever before," the Daily Express quoted a source as saying. "She's very proud of The X Files but feels her career has now moved on to a different phase," the source added.
Gillian, who plays the FBI Special Agent Dana Scully in the cult TV show, previously confessed that it had been tough getting out of The X Files stereotype. She said: "While I was doing it I imagined it wouldn't possibly typecast me but it does to a certain degree."
