X-Files star Gillian Anderson made a surprise visit to Glasgow Royal Infirmary yesterday. People making their way in were stunned when she turned up to film scenes for The Last King Of Scotland.

Anderson, 37, plays a doctor who has an affair with Scots actor James McAvoy's character in the movie about Ugandan dictator Idi Amin. She was driven from the front entrance to a nearby trailer and was flanked by heavy security between scenes.

But Shameless star McAvoy, 25, insists Anderson is a dream to work with. He said: "She's been great - a really nice woman. Gillian's hard working and very professional."

A set insider added: "She isn't like a Hollywood diva and was having a laugh and joke."

A spokeswoman for NHS Greater Glasgow Hospitals Trust said: "The crew were using parts of the hospital which are disused and there was no disruption to patients or staff.

There were spooky goings-on at a Scottish hospital yesterday as X-Files star Gillian Anderson jetted in to Glasgow.

But the 37-year-old actress wasn't investigating alien abductions - she was at the Royal Infirmary to film scenes for The Last King of Scotland, a movie about brutal Ugandan dictator Idi Amin.

A insider said: "Gillian has just returned from shooting scenes in Uganda and had to spend one day in Scotland filming. She has been having a laugh with the cast and crew and said it is a shame she can't get to spend more time in Scotland."
