Gillian Anderson loves to make fun of Jamie Dornan

2015-01-15 21:00

Los Angeles - Gillian Anderson enjoys picking on Jamie Dornan.

The Fall actress says her co-star is "very easy to make fun of" because he doesn't take himself too seriously and they have great relationship on the set of the drama.

When asked about the 32-year-old actor, she said: "Well, it's funny because I pick on him a lot."

Gillian is particularly amused by Jamie's soaring status as a sex symbol ahead of the release of his upcoming movie Fifty Shades of Grey.

The 46-year-old beauty said: "He's very easy to make fun of and he takes the piss out of himself and he is very free at taking the piss out of everybody else. So it's quite a joy to be able to reciprocate, especially on that subject matter. We have a lot of fun with it."

The former X-Files star also credits her three children, Piper, 20, Oscar, eight, and Felix, six, for helping her to unwind after shooting dark scenes for the series.

She told E! News: "Just even to go from the set into my trailer where I had a child that I suddenly needed to be mommy to, that in itself taught me pretty quickly how to compartmentalise.

"I don't find it that hard with anything, not just the dark stuff.

"My experience is you just do, that's work and that's home and they have their place.

"I've never found - knock wood, now I'm going to have the complete opposite experience where I'm going to be haunted every night by what I do from now on - but I don't find it such a big deal."
