If you've been wondering what happened to Gillian Anderson, the actress who played Agent Scully in The X-Files, she hasn't been abducted by aliens. The 37-year-old actress, who lived in England as a child, moved to London three years ago, where she's been pursuing a career on the West End stage and in low-budget, independent films. Anderson was in New York to publicize Tristram Shandy: A Cock and Bull Story, a film in which she has a very small, but very funny, part. She is also in Bleak House on PBS' Masterpiece Theatre.

Charell Gillian has seen a lot of changes since she joined Phelps Luck Elementary School as a teachers' secretary 27 years ago. Fewer than 400 pupils were enrolled at the time, and they all walked to school, Gillian said. Now, the school, which opened in 1972, has an enrollment of about 500, not including 40 children in two prekindergarten classes. And more than a half-dozen buses take the children to school. "It's definitely busier," she said, taking a moment to sit in the hallway and talk Thursday afternoon, the day before the school's open house for pupils and parents and just a few days before the start of the new school year.

ATHENS - With any luck, there won't be any fires or cats to get out of trees or any other sort of emergency this morning in San Jose, Calif. That way, the men and women at Willow Glen Fire Station No. 6 will be free to tune into the gold-medal women's soccer match between the United States and Brazil. They do, after all, have a direct connection to the game. One of their own, 30-year-old firefighter and paramedic Gillian Boxx, is here in Greece - not as an athlete, but as a spectator.

Charlotte Gray is a freeze-dried version of Sebastian Faulks' juicy novel about a passionate young Scotswoman who enlists with British intelligence and serves as a courier and go-between with the French Resistance during World War II. On paper it has a lot going for it, including high-stakes espionage and romance, and characters capable of holding more than one ideal or loyalty. But the director, Gillian Armstrong, and her writer, Jeremy Brock, operate more like concept artists here than dramatists.

With Michael Brady's To Gillian on Her 37th Birthday, Colonial Players opens its 53rd season by exploring a profound topic that eventually touches us all: coping with the death of a loved one. Set at a beach cottage at the end of summer, the company's September run couldn't have been better timed. Brady's first major work, To Gillian, appeared off-Broadway in 1983 and later was made into a moderately successful 1996 movie, available on video, starring Michelle Pfeiffer and Peter Gallagher.
