Golden Globe winner, Gillian Anderson will soon be seen starring in two diverse shows, Sex Education season 2 and The Crown season 4. These shows are poles apart from each other but seem like Gillian Anderson has got it right with the characters in the two hit series.

The actor is known to break stereotypical roles in her films. And as she has entered her 50s, she once again broke boundaries as she reprises the role of a sexpert in Sex Education 2. On the other hand, she will play the role of Margaret Thatcher who is the British Prime Minister in The Crown season 4.
