The fourth season of The Crown would it have been fatal to their relationship? After four years of relationship, Gillian Anderson and Peter Morgan are said to have separated. According to information from the Daily Mail in fact, the actress – masterful in the role of Margaret Thatcher – and the screenwriter, creator of this successful series, have decided to break. According to British journalist Baz Bamigboye, the two artists would not have managed to make time for each other because of “overly busy schedules”. “Their relationship ended naturally. The various work commitments and family logistics (each have children from past relationships) didn’t help, although they remain great friends,” he writes. And if the representatives of Gillian Anderson as of Peter Morgan have for the moment neither confirmed nor denied their breakup, the actress already mentioned the difficulties that the ex-couple encountered. “For our own sanity, and in fact for the good of our relationship, we had very clear limits”, she confided in the columns of Harper’s Bazaar, evoking the complexity of working for her companion in The Crown.
“I’m not going to comment on the script and he was not allowed to comment on my performance. I’m pretty good at silos in my life. I think I learned that quite young, being a young mother in playing in a very intense television series where either it was thoroughly on the set, or I was in my trailer having to close the door and no longer be that person but be a mom “, continued Gillian Anderson, who became a mom while she played the main role in the X-Files series. After the announcement of their supposed breakup, the actress split a funny post on social networks. “Meet my new girlfriend, Stella,” she captioned a snapshot of her with her dog. One way like any other to confirm that his love affair is well and truly over? As a reminder, the two had been in a relationship for four years and lived a beautiful love story in London, with the two youngest children of the actress.
“A nice meeting” and a nice break
“I was shooting Streetcar and Vanessa Kirby [who plays Margaret, Elizabeth II’s little sister, in the first two seasons of The Crown, note] kept telling me that I should meet Peter, says Gillian Anderson to Gala. I told her I didn’t see the need because I felt we were too different. I saw him as too intelligent and serious compared to me who spends my time joking. reassured me by bragging about her great sense of humor. We finally met over lunch and it was indeed a beautiful meeting. ” Before meeting Peter Morgan, Gillian Anderson was married twice: in the early 1990s to art director Clyde Klotz, father of his first daughter Piper Maru, and journalist Julian Ozanne.
