"I hope that Gillian Anderson will always be in a position to choose her projects, and to gravitate towards those roles that broaden her extraordinary talents. Some fans may be put off by the type of character she plays in Straightheads. From a professional standpoint, his does seem like a dark and risky undertaking. But Ms. Gillian has never been one to overstay her welcome in any one niche, however safe and successful it may have been (like Scully in X-Files). And I applaud her for having the courage to continually challenge herself as an actress, and to plumb her “lower depths” in order to play this potentially disturbing role."
