“The Crown” star Gillian Anderson covers the latest issue of Porter magazine photographed by Liz Collins and styled by Maya Zepinic.
Anderson doesn’t think she could have played the role if she had gone into it with political leanings: “If I felt strong opinions about how she parented or how she ran the country, it would definitely have had an impact on how I played different scenes, so I felt, as an actor, it was important to leave all that stuff at the door.”
Anderson might be concerned about the current state of the world, but what she’s witnessed and experienced during this tumultuous year has made a lasting impression on her. “I have a tendency to try to close my mind against certain things,” she reflects, thoughtfully. “[But] it is a time to listen.”
