[ quotes ... ]

▍Gillian: I think we probably know each other better than we know our spouses at any time that we might
have had spouses. There might even be more than an attraction, but it's not going to happen. But, you know,
you know... Anyway...

We heard that Gillian slammed you up against a wall and planted one on you.
Am I supposed to be playing along with something I don’t know?


David: No, I swear to god. Rob Bowman just told us that.
Rob’s just being cute.

So, it didn’t happen?

David: No.

Swear to god?

David: Yeah. No, we did a little funny take where I kind of jacked her up against the wall and started,
you know, doing the old…. Help me out.

Tongues?

David: No, we were acting like it was gross carnal coupling. You know, it was a joke for the crew and for us.
The actual kissing, that was never a part of the movie, so we never would have shot that. No, the only time we
did that was as a joke. Gillian and I did it to our liking, and then I said, “Let’s do one where we’re up against
the wall here.” We were outside of the cameras’ view, actually, at that point. So that’s not even on film, I don’t think.

[TNT Roughcut, 1998]

[Three-Minute X-Files Reunion With David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson]

We knew we’d get to see Agent Mulder in the flesh on Monday when we attended former X-Files star David Duchovny’s
theatrical debut in the Off Broadway production of Neil LaBute’s The Break of Noon, about a man who survives an office
shooting and finds God. But what we didn’t expect was to see Agent Scully (a.k.a. Gillian Anderson) by his side in the
intensely crowded opening-night after-party. We grabbed them for a hot three minutes in between their mingling with
old friends Ben Stiller, Garry Shandling, and Duchovny’s wife, Téa Leoni.

How often do you see each other?
Duchovny: Not often. Twice a year?
Anderson: Yes, twice a year.
Duchovny: Depending on whether we’re doing an X-Files movie or not. If we’re doing an X-Files movie, we see a lot of each other.
Anderson: In France, apparently, there is going to be one in France.

With you guys?
Duchovny: No, no. Not at all. Apparently the script’s written.
Anderson: We’re not in it at all.
Duchovny: But we always would love to do another one. So we’ll see. We’re getting a little long in the tooth, but
we’ll do it. Just me. Not her. Long in the tooth, I mean.

Would you do your same roles or become FBI mentors?
Duchovny: Well, I wouldn’t be doing her part.
Anderson: I’ll be on crutches. He’ll be in a wheelchair. But, yeah, it would be fun.
Duchovny: I would do it forever. I will always come back. By the end of the run, we were all good.

Do you keep in touch over e-mail?
Duchovny: A little bit, yeah.
Anderson: A little bit of texting, a little bit of BlackBerry action.
Duchovny: I don’t know if you know this, but Gillian’s an accomplished stage actor. She came all the way from London
just to see this. I’m very touched by that.

What are you doing in London?
Anderson: I live there. I’m shooting Johnny English 2, but I live there.
And you just couldn’t miss David’s opening night?
Anderson: I was told that he finally got to levitate. I had to see it with my own eyes.

Didn’t you levitate in The X-Files?
Duchovny: Oh sure, I did.
Anderson: Oh sure, yeah.
Duchovny: That’s why they hired me in this play. That’s something I can do.
Anderson: Typecast again, man!

This was a more realistic levitation?
Duchovny: Real enough.

Did you get hurt at all in the scene with Amanda Peet where she’s beating on you?
Duchovny: Sometimes she gets my ear but mostly she just gets my cheek.

There’s a scene with a prostitute. Did Californication help with your prep for the blow-job scene?
Duchovny: There are prostitutes other places other than on Californication. It’s not the only show that has sex on it.

Your wife, Téa [Leoni], said you use your iPad as your scene partner …
Duchovny: I do. It’s amazing.
Anderson: Your iPad?
Duchovny: This is going to be an advertisement. There’s this thing called iRehearsal.
Yeah?
Duchovny: You get your script on the iPad and you can record your lines or the other person’s lines and the script will scroll.
Anderson: No! And speak the other person’s lines at you?
Duchovny: Yeah, you record their lines. So you can rehearse all by yourself with the lines, and just talk to yourself. It’s great.

Last thing. Have you started to pray more now that you’re doing this play?
Duchovny: Not really. I pray enough in the show.

▍David: I don’t know why. Maybe just luck in the beginning. But after this long we actually do have a history…
And so when I look over at Gillian, or I’m Mulder looking over at Scully, there’s a lot of **** that I can call on. We have a
lot between us, and so you don’t really have to make it up. I think that just as people, now fifteen years later, we have
just shared so much — regardless of how much we speak to one another. I expect to see Gillian, even if I haven’t seen her for a year.

[DD, July 2008.]

▍Gillian: They either want to think we’re madly in love or hating each other. But it’s neither of those things. It’s magical
and difficult, and wondrous and painful, and frustrating and joyous, as any intense, intimate relationship is.

One word to describe your 20-years journey together?
David: Amazing.

▍Gillian: I found that it’s something completely beyond our control. That two people either have it or they don’t. It’s not
something that you can force. And, you know, there can be days when we both, you know, don’t wanna talk to each other, and
we get on camera and the chemistry is there.
David: Yeah, you know, and days when we don’t wanna talk, but unfortunately Mulder and Scully do have to talk. But yeah, it’s
just very weird… What have I done so that she doesn't wanna talk to me?
Gillian: … Next question.

[Golden Globe Awards, 1997]

▍Kim Manners (XF Director): When you direct them in a scene like that last scene in the motel room and basically - they’re
fugitives from justice. And you can just see it in their faces: how much they truly did love each other. And that wasn’t just
Dana and Fox, that was David and Gillian. They truly, truly loved each other. I never saw anything like it. I’ve been in this
business all my life, literally, and I think that David and Gillian’s relationship, and Scully and Mulder, is one of the greatest
male/female relationships in TV history.

Are they things you wonder about each other that you’ve never dared speak about?

Gillian: Yes, it’s happened to me.
David: More often than you can imagine! Okay, I’ll start! Gillian, if I irritate you as much as you make out, how have you
managed to put up with me all these years?

Gillian: I’m a professional and I’ve learnt to ignore the more unpleasant aspects of this job. You know, when I started out,
I had to put up with worse than you. Don’t kid yourself… you’re not as important as all that, my little David! My turn!
Why did you never tell me about your relationship with Téa Leoni? I wasn’t even invited to the wedding…

David: You’re still angry about that? You know, thanks to acting on the X-Files for so long, keeping secrets has
become second nature to me.
Gillian: Okay, you can tell me now… Between Téa and you, was it love at first sight?

David: When I first met her for the first time, she didn’t as much effect on me as that. It was “delayed” love at first sight.
Be honest, there must be a couple of things you like about me?
Gillian: You’re a sincere and funny guy. Two qualities that are rarely found together in the same man.

[Téléstar Interview (October, 1998)]

Have you experienced this kind of chemistry in any other films/projects you’ve worked on?

Gillian: It’s different. There are shades of it in other projects and films, but there’s just something different with David.
That’s the unexplainable bit that I can’t quite put a finger on, and it’s kind of like it was a gift for us to have this
experience together. But it’s not necessarily quantifiable.”

[GA, Buzzline, 2008]

▍"It’s going to be strange and fun. Thankfully, Gillian will be there, and we’ll both be in positions of like,
‘Are we really here doing this again? Are we really saying those words again?’ At least we’ll have each other."

David Duchovny - People Magazine May 2015

▍“I’m just thankful that Gillian will be there [when we film more X-Files] to check in with and go ‘F—k, this is strange!”,
he says with a laugh. “We started this show 23 years ago, and here we are still doing it. In some way, it’s a show that never ended.”

David Duchovny, TV Guide Magazine, May 2015

In all of these The Way We Were-ish memories, I ask, will there be one of a time you witnessed Duchovny totally naked? Anderson laughs.
“Do you mean naked emotionally, physically? Oh never mind, I know you mean physically. Well, I’m sure I’ve walked into his trailer while he’s changing, thinking it was my trailer, of course, shocked him stark naked. I think what his fans truly want to hear is that, umm, he’s apparently, and I believe this is true, well hung. In terms of his body, he’s got, you know…” Anderson is all but squirming by now. “I can’t believe you put me on the spot here. He’s in good shape. Good shape.”
