Gillian Anderson nearly lost her X-Files job after getting pregnantMay 4th, 2009 - 6:31 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, May 4 (ANI): Actress Gillian Anderson has revealed that she nearly waved goodbye to her job on cult TV show The X-Files after getting pregnant.
The 40-year-old, who plays the FBI Special Agent Dana Scully in the American series, said had it not been for her onscreen chemistry with co-star David Duchovny, she would have been sacked.
“They would have loved to have punished me but realised there was steam picking up,” Contactmusic quoted her as saying.
“I thought they were overreacting but now I see it from their perspective.
“I would have been bloody p**sed if I had been them and had cast a girl, against my better judgement, who got pregnant after the first season,” she added. (ANI)
