"If you ask me, we should have ended it two years ago," Anderson says. "They couldn’t have found two better actors [Patrick and Gish] to take over, but the show was about Mulder and Scully. I think it was a difficult transition for the audience to make."
That’s why she was so pleased that Duchovny was returning for the finale. “I was very excited to see him and to have the Mulder-Scully experience again,” Anderson says. “It’s something indescribable that can’t be duplicated, and that’s a wonderful thing the two of us have together.”
