LONDON — Former "X-Files" star Gillian Anderson is returning to the London stage next year as Blanche DuBois in "A Streetcar Named Desire."

Anderson will play the fading beauty who relies on the kindness of strangers in a Young Vic production of Tennessee Williams' steamy southern drama.

The theater said Friday that the production, directed by Benedict Andrews, will open in summer 2014. Dates have not been announced.

Anderson was nominated for an Olivier Award – British theater's highest honor – for her performance in Henrik Ibsen's "A Doll's House" at London's Donmar Warehouse in 2009.

She recently played a police officer in TV thriller "The Fall" and remains known to millions as Agent Scully in the supernatural detective series "The X-Files."
