Gillian’s history files on film role
GILLIAN ANDERSON brushed up on history for her role as Lady Mountbatten in new film Viceroy’s House.
The 48-year-old X-Files actress was joined by co-star Hugh Bonneville, who plays Lord Mountbatten, for the London premiere of the drama about the partition of India in 1947.
She said: ‘I did not know a lot about this. What was fascinating was how out of their depth they were in this ridiculously opulent house in the middle of what would become one of the greatest atrocities of history.’
The film opens on March 3.
