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.

Tell me one thing about Gillian.
"That’s such a hard question. She’s a really hardworking actress. When you’re tired and you want to move on, she stays in there. She always tries to do it as well as she can, despite fatigue or lack of attention. And that can be pretty inspiring— and pretty infuriating."David Duchovny, E! Online, 1998
