Fomer 'The X-Files' star Gillian Anderson has revealed that she hated her time on the popular sci-fi series and will never appear in another TV series.
The actress said that the only reason she played Agent Dana Scully for nine years was because she enjoyed the financial benefits of starring on the show.
Anderson told Stella magazine, "I couldn't get out of it. I didn't have a choice. I had to sign a contract for five-and-a-half-years before I even went to my first audition - when I didn't know if I'd got the part. Back then I was all innocent and I thought, 'Wow that sounds wonderful.'
"But then, when I started, I realised I'd be in a Canadian wood working 16 hours a day for nine months a year. And the reason I stayed so long was because the only way I could get more money was to commit myself to doing it for another couple of years."
When asked about future TV projects, she replied, "Oh, shut the f*** up! Are you kidding me? My God, I don't even watch television. I don't like television. I never have liked it. The whole concept of sitting down in front of a TV feels like one of the things that's destroying society, as far as I'm concerned."
