Gillian Anderson suffers panic attacks
The `X Files` actress - who has previously appeared in `The Vagina Monologues` and `A Doll`s House` in London-s West End - is keen to return to the theatre but finds the experience terrifying.
She said: "I`m constantly thinking about doing more theatre, particularly when I see a good play.
"I have a couple of ideas but I like to wait two years between parts because that`s all I can handle.
"I have to park my fear. I find it absolutely terrifying, have panic attacks and wonder why the hell I`m doing it. It`s almost as if you`re never left off the hook: panic lingers over my shoulder."
Despite her fears, the 42-year-old actress is happy to do it because she thinks is no better feeling when the job is done well.
She said: "There`s nothing like it. I can walk on a stage and I feel so emotional I start crying.
"I don`t know why. It`s not ego. It feels like the antithesis. Ego is squashed all the time. But I`ve ever been worried what people think of me. Well, I don`t think I have."
