fuck yeah david and gillian : documenting the awkward since 2010
“But there’s no doubt he is an incredibly attractive man, mostly because of his sense of self and his charisma. He has a certain arrogance that’s very appealing to women. I could see us at some point going on a date. But I don’t know how long it would last. I don’t see myself as his type.” GA, Movieline, 1998
(season three wrap party, 1996)
A little inebriation goes a long way.
Charlie Rose: Well, are you two close?
David Duchovny: Not personally. We’re close professionally, as can be.
CR: There’s respect and admiration as colleagues would have …
DD: She’s the other one holding the other side of the rope. I mean, I rely on her, I trust her, and she does me. We don’t …
CR: Why haven’t you bonded?
DD: Well, we have bonded in that way. […]
But it’s funny cause Téa and I, my wife, just had a little party in our new house, and it’s my first party that I’ve ever given really in my life, and Gillian came. I invited Gillian and she came. And when she came, I said, you know, this is really screwed up because I can’t, any longer, say that we don’t socialize.

“I think [our relationship] is one of those ones that’s so kind of longstanding and so many things are unspoken. It’s almost familial in that way. I’m a firm believer that you recreate your family situations at work. She’s a combination of a few people. I won’t say who. But it’s complicated.”

In a reunion made in U.F.O. heaven, David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson, the much-missed stars of TV’s The X-Files, came together on November 22, opening night of Neil LaBute’s The Break of Noon. Duchovny stars in MCC’s off-Broadway production of the new play, which centers on a man who sees the face of God after surviving a horrific office shooting. (Hmm, sounds like a plotline fit for Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully to tackle.) Looking better than they did when their groundbreaking sci-fi series premiered back in 1993 (!), Duchovny and Anderson posed for photos after the show. Hey, Gillian: You’ve done tons of theater in London. Why not give Broadway a try?
David Duchovny got a big surprise tonight. For his opening off Broadway in Neil LaBute‘s “The Break of Noon,” former “X Files” costar Gillian Anderson flew in from England. She’d told him she’d come, but Duchovny looked shocked when he actually saw her. Talk about support!
“Break of Noon” after party!
omggggg, this is SO CUTE
LET’S DO THIS ALL THE TIME GUYS
Duchovny co-stars with Amanda Peet, and New York theater vets Tracee Chimo, and John Earl Jelks – all of whom make an excellent ensemble …
At one point, Amanda Peet’s character–playing John’s ex wife–demands from him, “I want the truth.” It sounded like a line from the “X Files.” Anderson told me she got a good laugh when she heard it.
new interview from NYMag.com:
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!
