"The X-Files" star been on "Hannibal" this season, but she’s poised to make a big splash this summer and fall with "The Fall" on Netflix and NBC’s "Crisis." In "The Fall" (on Netflix Tuesday, May 28), Anderson plays Stella Gibson, a detective brought in to stop a serial killer in Belfast. "The Fall" also features "The Good Wife’s" Archie Panjabi — "Archie is a fantastic actress and we have a very interesting and compelling relationship in ‘The Fall.’" — and "Once Upon a Time’s" Jamie Dornan.

I like the way she handles situations and I thought I kind of need to be this person for a while. Obviously, the scripts themselves were very well-written, very compelling, very emotionally engaging. I knew that after having conversations with [the minds behind “The Fall”] that they had similar ideas as I did about how it should be shot and once we were all on the same page, it just seemed like something I couldn’t not do.
