PrivatAir Magazine Interview

Hot Property (For Sale)
By Sam Bayoumi
PrivatAir Magazine: July 2012

Five and a half years ago while en route to India she stopped over in Colombo, did a little travelling and liked what she saw. 'Sri Lanka is a paradise.'

'�this house was so beautiful and ridiculously huge� we flew out to take a look and I fell in love with it.'

Set in seven acres of lush grounds an hour's drive inland of Colombo, the house once belonged to a well-known aristocratic Sri Lankan family, one of whom was Justin Deraniyagala. One of the pioneers of Sri Lankan art, he studied at the Slade in London and then worked in Paris, a contemporary of painters such as Picasso, Matisse and Georges Braque; he painted Josephine Baker in the 1920s. When Anderson bought it, the house had been empty for over 30 years, and looked more like a haunted mansion than a liveable home.

Since then she has been flying out to Sri Lanka to oversee the renovation work being carried out by a local project manager and his team. The main house was reroofed, verandas and balconies were variously opened up and expanded, new bathrooms and kitchens were created, and several outbuildings were converted into additional accommodation.

'I've been working on it for four years - I don't think I've ever worked on a house project that long before. So there's a part of me that feels like it's time for me to pass the project on.'

Gillian is now on Facebook and Twitter
Posted at 4:42 PM (PDT) on Friday, July 6, 2012

Okay so I am doing what I said I would never do which is set up social network sites. And I am starting by announcing that I will be doing another thing I said I would never do which is a convention. But what the hell it�s ten years since XF ended and why not commemorate?

These sites are mostly to get rid of imposters who have apparently been communicating with unsuspecting friends for some time now-weird! - and will only be for promoting charities and upcoming events and will be handled by my publicists.

Only on the VERY rare occasion will I tweet or comment myself and hopefully those close to me will slap me across the face for doing so.

Voyager Magazine Interview

Gillian Anderson Gets the Better of VOYAGER
By Andrew Humphreys
Voyager Magazine: July 2012

It�s a frustrating business interviewing Gillian Anderson. She turns up bang on time and alone, no entourage. She�s intelligent, articulate and unexpectedly obliging: her agent had said a photo shoot was out of the question, but after our meeting Anderson gets in touch to say she�ll do one. In fact, I like her very much. All the same, she gives little away.
