Pam Anderson Could Have Been On X-Files

Pam Anderson might have had a very different career had she chosen to take a role that was offered to her years ago. That role? Agent Scully on X-Files!

Seems ridiculous now, because we can only picture Gillian Anderson in the role. But back in the day before Gillian landed the part, execs approached Pam for the job.

Gillian says, "Pamela was somebody who was more familiar to them in terms of what was on TV at the time.

"They were looking for someone bustier, taller, leggier than me. They couldn't fathom how David and me could equal success. At the beginning, nobody trusted that I could do anything. I had no body of work behind me at all, and, certainly Fox felt very strongly that I wasn't the right person for the job."

Can you imagine if Pam had accepted the part? It would haven been such a different show! Plus we never would have had the honor of seeing Pam star in all her other hits, like Stacked and Striperella!
