* AdamWesting:
** In ''Tristram Shandy: A Cock and Bull Story'', a quasi-mockumentary about filming an adaptation of the novel, Gillian Anderson (as herself) gets the part of the Widow Wadnam because the producer loves her as Scully on ''The X-Files''. Gillian wants to get away from her most famous role, and is later annoyed when her scenes as the widow are cut from the movie. Many, many more layers of meta in this film.

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.
