See RadioTimes' exclusive shots of the very seductive Gillian Anderson, who's interviewed in the upcoming issue of Radio Times - on sale Tuesday, 29 March - and is soon to appear in Victorian thriller The Crimson Petal and the White.

"I've played monstrous women before - 'bitches' for want of a better word - but this is the first proper one," Anderson tells RT.
