* 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.

* AbilityOverAppearance: Fox executives wanted somebody "taller, leggier, blonder and breastier" to play Scully, but Chris Carter convinced them that the then-unknown petite, redhead (albeit natural blonde) Gillian would be perfect.



* DyeHard: She's a natural blonde, but Dana Scully was a redhead (of various shades in the long run), and this image of her got stuck.
* FakeAmerican: Gillian Anderson was born in America to American citizens, but she moved to England when she was two and didn't move back until she was eleven, and by then, her speech patterns had been set. She had to work to lose it when she went into acting, and if you pay attention to the early episodes of ''The X-Files'', it slips through at times. Now that she's moved back to England, she's got the accent back in full force. Her American accent she acquired in her teenage years comes back whenever she's interviewed by an American reporter.
