Saga''. She currently plays Media on ''Series/AmericanGods''.



* OlderThanTheyLook: She's in her forties, but looks positively gorgeous and definitely better when her looks are compared to early Scully days. Dana Scully was cute, but a bit mousy and dressed with questionable fashion taste in the early seasons of ''The X-Files''.

* OohMeAccentsSlipping: Her accent tends to fluctuate. She was born in the US, but lived in England until she was in her early teens, and didn't try to shed the accent until she was out of high school. In the very early episodes of ''The X-Files'', she'll slip occasionally. In the 2008 movie, it can get quite noticeable in Scully's emotional scenes, as Anderson moved back to England after the show ended in 2002, and had to relearn her American accent all over again for the film.

* HideYourPregnancy: She was pregnant at the end of Season 1 and the beginning of Season 2 of ''The X-Files''. She wore lots of baggy clothes and appeared in unrevealing angles. Her pregnancy influenced the famous MythArc of the show.
* IAmNotSpock: Dana Scully is her most famous role. She moved from the States to Great Britain to defy the trope.



* ScullyBox: She's very petite, and her co-star Creator/DavidDuchovny as Fox Mulder on ''The X-Files'' [[OneHeadTaller was much taller]], so the crew had her stand on a box. She looks tiny and adorable in some scenes without high heels and without the box. Her role is the {{Trope Namer|s}} (while the ProductionNickname derived from the actress herself, "Gilly-Board").



* StarMakingRole: Dana Scully of ''The X-Files'' made her a household name. The show was huge!
* UnderageCasting: She was 24 when she was cast as Dana Scully, a forensic pathologist with a medical degree, FBI training, and teaching at the FBI academy. Her character was in her late twenties, though realistically, Scully would have to be in her mid thirties to achieve the qualifications she has.
* WrittenByCastMember: She wrote and directed "[[Recap/TheXFilesS07E17AllThings All Things]]", a Season 7 episode of ''The X-Files''. The reviews from critics were mixed, but fans loved the episode and praised her insight into her character.
