Gillian Anderson And Kate McKinnon Are The Power Duo Sci-Fi Has Been Waiting For

by Katherine Barner

It seems that Kate McKinnon, star in the latest Ghostbusters, has always had a thing for the supernatural. X-Files star Gillian Anderson found a photograph of a young Kate McKinnon dressed as Agent Dana Scully, and every sci-fi lover’s dreams came true with a single Tweet.

The future is female is right! This goes to show that represtentation really does matter. In this case, it’s representation of women in sci-fi.

The photo was first seen on Reddit a couple years ago, but has been brought to a new light thanks to the Ghostbusters reboot with a female cast. Anderson captioned the photo, “We have something in common & it’s not slimy green things.” 

I think I speak for us all when I say: Can we have a Kate McKinnon/Gillian Anderson collaboration now please?
