Gillian Anderson Posts New AMERICAN GODS Photo

On Thursday, Gillian Anderson posted a picture on Twitter teasing her role in the upcoming series AMERICAN GODS.

After only recently announcing her role in the upcoming STARZ series AMERICAN GODS, Gillian Anderson posted a first glimpse on her Twitter in the form of a (rather blurry) picture.

Anderson will be playing Media, one of the pivotal gods in the show. Media, per her name, thrives off of media attention. The show’s official character description reads: Media is the mouthpiece for the New Gods, functioning as their public face and sales representative, by taking the form of various iconic celebrities.

Check out the picture below:

With Media’s role in, well, the media, it makes sense that the blonde haired look points to something Marilyn Monroe-esque. If only the photo was less blurry!

Below is the show synopsis:

Shadow is a man with a past. But now he wants nothing more than to live a quiet life with his wife and stay out of trouble. Until he learns that she’s been killed in a terrible accident. Flying home for the funeral, as a violent storm rocks the plane, he is greeted by a strange man in the seat next to him. The man calls himself Mr. Wednesday, and he knows more about Shadow than is possible. He warns Shadow that a far bigger storm is coming. And from that moment on, nothing will ever be the same.

American Gods is set to air in 2017.
