Madonna sings the praises of Gillian Anderson in The Fall

By Joanne Sweeney

The woman who had a spectacular fall at an awards ceremony is a self-confessed fan of the Northern Ireland-based TV drama series The Fall.

But queen of pop Madonna - who sensationally took a tumble at last month's Brit Awards - has her eyes not on Belfast actor Jamie Dornan but the performance of his co-star Gillian Anderson.

Dornan shot to stardom playing Christian Grey in Fifty Shades of Grey. Many believe his performance as Paul Spector in the murder thriller has been his best to date. Madonna said The Fall is one of just two television series she watches.

She said: "I don't really watch TV. I only like two shows - True Detective and an Irish series called The Fall - and I'm not embarrassed about them.

"Many people say, 'The Fall with Jamie Dornan,' but I say, 'The Fall with Gillian Anderson.' She's so good."
