Arcadia has been released on Blu-ray and DVD in the USA. Gillian reunited with the team behind “Beyond” for this dystopian thriller.
“In the not too distant future, the population has risen to dangerous numbers and a deadly disease has gripped the world. To combat the death toll rising, 'Arcadia' has been built as safe disease-free haven for the privileged, where life expectancy is more than 130 years. Outside Arcadia, the average life lasts merely 40 years - unless they can earn a place amongst the elite. Charlie is 39 and living in London, with little time left he works every day to get him and his daughter into the safe haven. When asked to capture a government target, Adam Black, a member of resistance movement 'Free Care', Charlie take this opportunity to guarantee them a place inside Arcadia. On the brink of achieving his dream, his mission takes a wrong turn and he finds himself questioning the real purpose for Black's capture. As discoveries are made, it seems the government have not told Charlie the full truth about Black and 'Free Care'. Facing a choice between saving his life and doing what's right, what will Charlie decide?”

Gillian spoke to Occhi Magazine about The Stolen Movie, what makes her tick as an actor and shared some random facts.
"You can obviously never beat a great script so that is always attractive but I guess I’m always looking for something a bit different or a character which will challenge me, emotionally or technically. I enjoy working with other actors as a scene can go in a totally different direction to how you imagined it and that’s really exciting. I love to analyze human behavior and I find it fascinating how complex our psyches are. I really love putting the pieces of the puzzle together to bring a character to life and I find damaged or broken characters utterly compelling and exploring the darker, ugly side of human behavior fascinating."
Gillian spoke to dan Stephens at Top 10 films about The Stolen and her career so far.
"The good thing that’s come out of all of these terrible allegations and reports is that the industry is talking about representation in front and behind the camera. It’s a shame it’s come to this but hopefully there will now be a real, considered change in the way things are done. The perception of female led films is definitely changing and I’m so proud to be involved in a film with so many excellent female characters played by epic actresses I really admire and was proud to work alongside."
Gillian spoke to Female First about her new movie The Stolen:
"Starring in new Western adventure The Stolen alongside the likes of Alice Eve and Graham McTavish, Gillian MacGregor is an actress that seems to be consistently going from strength to strength. We got the chance to chat with her all about the film, as well as women in the movie business and the future."

Gillian chatted to Flickering Myth about The Stolen, what it was like filming in New Zealand and her experiences filming this sweeping, cinematic movie:
"Working with Alice Eve and Jack Davenport was great. It’s always interesting to see how other actors approach things and the cast was enormous on this one so there were so many opportunities to learn. The characters are so varied and from all over the world, with different backgrounds, and the actors gave it their all to bring them to life. It was also amazing to be a part of another project with a great female lead and, actually, so many women in general."
Gillian chatted to HeyUGuys about her role in The Stolen, her previous projects and how she felt being a part of a movie that is playing a part in dismantling cinematic stereotypes:
"The portrayal of women on screen is a hot topic at the moment and it’s great to see many high profile women making this an ongoing point of discussion. Although it feels like there are more opportunities now, I think we still have such a long way to go in terms of equal representation so a film like this was so attractive to me. I’ve been lucky enough to play some brilliant, strong characters and Heather is a great one to add to the collection! There are definitely fewer roles for women in film in general yet here we had a script with many distinct, nuanced female parts."
The Quiet One won the Best International Feature Film Award at the Underground Cinema Film Festival and has also made the official selection at the Oslo Film Fest.
