fuck yeah david and gillian : documenting the awkward since 2010
What’s your favourite thing about each other?
DUCHOVNY: Gillian just doesn’t give up. If a scene’s not working for whatever reason, whereas I might go, ‘Fuck it, let’s just move on,’ she won’t give up, no matter how tired or frustrated everyone is…she’ll hang in there ‘til we get it right.
ANDERSON: My favourite thing about David? The tea-cup. (Both laugh) The easiest answer, I guess, is his sense of humour. He’s always looking at the funny side of things, especially when he’s around other actors who are comedians or funny themselves – it can turn into a bit of a contest to see who does the best impressions and such. But aside from there, there’s a gentleness inside him that comes out every once in a while that is quite disarming and lovely. It’s rare, but very nice.

“She’s very tough, a survivor,” he says. In the pilot, he recalls, they had to stand outside in freezing rain. Duchovny was ready to leave, but Anderson, he says, “stood there wanting it to be colder and wetter. She was actually her face to the rain machine, saying ‘Hit me with more water.’”
