The Chico Movie Examiner recently conducted an over-the-phone interview with award-winning actress Gillian Anderson to talk about her new film, “Last Love,” which opens in select theaters on Nov. 1. Anderson is most notably known for her role as Dana Scully in the hit Fox series, “The X-Files,” and she currently has a recurring role as Dr. Bedelia Du Maurier on NBC’s “Hannibal.”
In “Last Love,” Anderson plays Karen Morgan, the daughter of Matthew Morgan (Michael Caine) – a widower living in Paris who finds a new zest for life through a young dance instructor named Pauline (Clemence Posey). But whenever he’s alone, Matthew still thinks of his dead wife, Joan (Jane Alexander), who visits him on occasion. Matthew botches an attempt at committing suicide, and Karen and her brother, Miles (Justin Kirk), pay him a visit. Miles then tries to reconnect with his father and tries to understand the relationship between he has with Pauline.
Anderson talked about her role in “Last Love”; her choice to take on more recurring and supporting roles; and she even talks about how “The Wrong Trousers” is not her favorite movie of all time – even though it says so on her IMDb page.
