fuck yeah david and gillian : documenting the awkward since 2010
“It was definitely there, it still is. I mean, there’s something that can’t be explained about it. It’s no rhyme or reason. [laughs] You know, it’s just there when we are together in front of the camera, and even… well, generally in front of the camera. [laughs]
“It’s just something that kind of clicks in and for whatever reason. But thank God. I mean, it’s just some people have that together and some people don’t… in retrospect, it was a huge aspect of why we stuck together, of why the show continued. I don’t think I realized that until it wasn’t there anymore.”

“I’ve only seen David a handful of times since the beginning of the season,” Anderson notes. “There are about six episodes that he’s involved in now that we’re reaching the end of the year, but it’s odd. I mean, it’s like I’ve taken on a lover in a sense; there’s another man living in the house, you know what I mean? We haven’t had a lot of experience where it’s the three of us, but I’d be lying if I didn’t say that it’s a little awkward. But,” she adds with a coy smile, “we’re all adults.”

A little inebriation goes a long way.
“We shared such an important chunk of our lives, and now this person I once knew intimately is no longer around. I miss his humor and his presence, and especially what our characters shared.”

I stayed up for two nights straight when Wondercon happened. I’d say 80% because of this.CookieCris
Did David and I hate each other? At times yes like any brother and sister, husband and wife, co-worker and co-worker forced to spend that much time together under such strenuous circumstances.
Do we hate each other now? Not in the least.
Do I imagine that when we do the film together we won’t hate each other for a few hours during the filming? No. We will. Vehemently. As David waits patiently, again and again for the hair dryer to calm my frizzy hair between takes so it matches the beginning of the scene… he will undoubtedly be thinking “what the hell was I thinking agreeing to shoot with her f****** frizzy hair again?”
But we will also love each other and laugh with each other and pull pranks on each other and bug each other like we did for nine years.
And that’s that.

100th POST HOORAY! Thanks to my 161 followers; you all rock.
I actually can’t find a quote that matches the adorkable fresh-faced naïveté of this picture.
I saw David’s movie The House Of D last night and I thought it was wonderful and beautifully written and beautifully shot and I just wanted to recommend that all of you who can, go out this weekend and see it. You won’t be disappointed and it will boost his attendance record for the opening weekend which is essential to keep it out there. It’s really lovely.

And you have to keep pinching yourself, waking up, and going ‘Hang on a second, hang on to this because this may be the last time. This may be… look around you , and see.. There’s David… No there’s… I look across the room at him sometimes, either on the sound stage or in the scene, just being there, the flashes of memory, and just the peculiarity of arriving back to this place again. When we were…’ We’re both obviously older and you know, it was great.
Gillian Anderson (2008)
(on making IWTB)
“For whatever reason, there is this energy between us when we come together, which is very compelling and curious. Why do we have that? There’s attraction on screen with other actors I have worked with, but it’s not the same. What’s different between David and me? I don’t know.”

“The chemistry is completely easy; it is something that we seem to be able to slip into with our eyes closed. From the second we started working together, it was there. There’s a lot of déjà vu.”
GA, First Magazine, 2008
How was it working with the cast members?
“I mean, David - the guy that I was with most of the time - and I have had a very long, complicated relationship. But we’ve grown very fond of each other, in our dotage, and um, he’s a lovely man. Everybody’s lovely.”

THE LINT MOMENT
When your boss is talking about serious business right next to you and all you care about is removing lints on your co star clothes and play with him
They really were in their own little world ♥♥♥

Did the chemistry return right away with David?
Well, the chemistry with David is completely easy. It is something that we seem to do, to slip into with our eyes closed. From the second we started working together, it was there. There was one point when we were in a scene and I looked to David - Mulder - in the way Scully would naturally look to him for some mutual understanding abut something that was being discussed - and it was so familiar. When I recognised who was in front of me, it was almost shocking in a way. There’s a lot of deja vu. It took a good many hours to acknowledge the fact that “here we are again,” finally and wonderfully. We are both enjoying it so much.
