American Gods Gillian Anderson

American Gods Video: Gillian Anderson Channels Bowie as New God Media

After watching this clip of Gillian Anderson from Sunday’s American Gods, (Starz, 9/8c), you’ll likely have the same reaction as Technical Boy: “Are you f–ing with me right now?!” (And we mean that in a good way.)

Per the network, “Gillian Anderson stars as the New God Media in the critically acclaimed series American Gods. Media assumes whatever form will deliver her message most effectively and is often personified by iconic celebrities.”

In this clip, the X-Files star is clearly doing her finest David Bowie impression as she instructs Bruce Langley’s character about how best to proceed.

“You have an image problem,” she tells him. “You need to think about your brand.” She then informs him that Mr. World would like to “re-gift” his apology — which is apparently a thing that gods can do — to Wednesday and Shadow Moon, to which Technical Boy replies… oh, we’ll just let you watch and find out.

Hit PLAY on the video below, then drop a comment with your first impression of Anderson’s Media.

    Not only does she do a good David Bowie, but her Lucille Ball wasn’t half-bad either. Although seeing her with a Cigarette in hand was just a little mind-blowing…

    • J.B. says:

      You do know that Lucille Ball smoked on her show as well as appeared in many cigarette ad campaigns during her career?

    A Goddess and a God at the same time? The universe may implode.

    Many came to know Gillian Anderson as “Scully”, I am a member if that vast club. But it is her amazing work outside “The X-Files” that are a testament to her talent as an actress. Was she amazing in “American Gods”? Without a doubt. But we should no longer be shocked, Gillian Anderson is just that damned good.
