Stella Gibson is the main character of the BBC tv show The Fall. She is portrayed by the American actress Gillian Anderson.

Early life

According to Paul Spector Stella Gibson nurtures an Electra complex towards her father so much that she often dreams and annotates the details in her dream journal. She has several degrees, including one in anthropology. At some point in her career she had a relationship with Jim Burns.


Stella is a strong woman and dominant character that gets her way in a male-dominated world.

She's bisexual and has sexual relations with anyone who arouses her interest, both physical and intellectual. This usually scares the men with whom she comes in contact, as pointed out to Detective Birk after Olson's murder.

Her boundless culture and skills in studying the human psyche make her extremely fascinating but also frightening.

Physical Appearance

Gibson is a good-looking woman in her thirties, with blonde and wavy hair that fall on her shoulders. She has green eyes that can literally look through people and notice details which escape to normal people. Stella has a lean physique and nimble due to the long hours she dedicated to swimming.
