Gillian Anderson Quotes 2002

• DW: How important was the chemistry between Mulder and Scully to the success of the show?
"I'm only just realising how essential that was now - now that there is something to miss. It's particular to David and I and I do miss it. I'm glad that he's back so that we can play around with it for a little while longer before the show ends, but it was central and I don't think I ever realised how central it was until the other half of it wasn't there any more."

• "I don't think I had a clear conscious thought about the chemistry until it started to be brought to my attention. You know, by, you know doing press and people saying: "What about chemistry between you and David?" 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 ... [pause] ... 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, and I think it was a huge, in retrospect, it was a huge aspect of why we stuck together, of why the show continued. You know, people would talking about it early on and I would think, "yeah well that’s an aspect of it, but that’s not you know...", but that’s a big aspect, it really is. I don’t think I realized that until it was wasn't there anymore." -- (The X-Files Official Site, June 6, 2002)

Gillian Anderson Quotes 2002

• "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." -- (TV Guide 'The Exit Files' May 18-24, 2002 by Mark Nollinger)

• DW: Can you talk about your last day on the set with David Duchovny. After all these years as Scully and Mulder, how did it feel knowing you may never work with him again?
It was strange, because last year so many episodes were about Mulder so he was still around and it never really felt like he was gone. Everybody kept asking "What is it like without David?", but it didn't feel like he wasn't around. So that last day was surreal. I think a part of my brain was trying to ignore the fact that it was approaching, so I was kind of going about my day as if it were any other day then we ended up in this scene with this dialogue that was the end for that stage of our relationship. All of a sudden I think he was more aware of it and was being really mindful of that last scene. I blocked it out until the last moment where all of a sudden it hit me, that this person that I was standing in front of as I know him and have known him for such a long time, that this aspect of our relationship was coming to a close. We embraced and I just burst into tears. We held our embrace for a really long time and I think it was just flooding over us, the importance of this agreement that we've had to be in each other's lives in a very powerful way.

• DW: So what is the reality of this new season without David?
I love all the new characters. [The actors are] just wonderful human beings. It's a real pleasure working with them, but on the other hand David is not here and there was something that we shared as actors and characters that cannot be reproduced. Not that anybody is trying to reproduce it, but it's just not the same. There was an energy between us that was very powerful and very profound. I miss that and Scully misses that. When we were taping the first and second episodes this year I think I referred to Doggett as Mulder by accident, which I had done way at the beginning with him. It was like there's some part of me that is still in that rhythm, expecting that familiarity. -- (Dreamwatch, January 2002

Gillian Anderson Quotes 2001

• But she does miss David Duchovny, her partner for eight seasons. "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," she says. -- (USA Weekend Oct 14, 2001)

• What you think about x philes, about the level of devotion?
You know, sometimes I don't understand it because I'm not a tv watcher and I've never been passionate about a particular show. And then ... David and I will get together and do a scene together or I'll watch a scene that we've done and it just ... it tugs on something inside of me .... and all of a sudden, I get it. There's something historical there. I think I know enough about X Files, in general ... to last a lifetime! -- (Yahoo Chat May 15, 2001)

• For the record, Anderson says she and Duchovny get along really well. "It's remarkable what ends up on screen," she says. "It's just a consistently strong relationship. It's just constant tension and it's great." -- ("Scully Heats Things Up" Toronto Star Movie Critic by Peter Howell, June 25, 1998)
• "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." -- (Movieline 1998)
• "There is something that happens between the two of us when we're on camera. And no matter what moods either us are in- it's there. And thank God." -- (X-Files on "Primetime Live", 1998)
• Even the stars got involved in the debate. In 1996 Anderson confessed: "It would be great to get into the sack with David and let everyone see Scully and Mulder enjoy the greatest sex in the world with each other. I think it's time she let loose some of that hidden passion." "But I'm afraid it'll have to remain a dream. If David and I did make love on screen it would spoil the chemistry that's built up between us. The producers know this and have banned romance." -- (By Simon Trent from Now Magazine (in UK) in December, 1998)
• Scully and Mulder come very, very close to a kiss in the movie - what was doing that scene like for you? "It was really close, wasn't it? I mean, it was, like, a millimeter away. It was pretty hot - it was pretty good. And it was up to me to do the moment where I broke it and the bee stung me. So it was fun to play with how long we could make it last before we actually touched." -- (TV Guide, 1998)

(In 1996 Anderson confessed: "It would be great to get into the sack with David and let everyone see Scully and Mulder enjoy the greatest sex in the world with each other. I think it's time she let loose some of that hidden passion.)

I so enjoyed this quote from Gillian, I love how she says that Scully desires Mulder and wants to let loose some of that hidden passion, that Mulder is going to be one lucky guy when Scully let’s loose, let me tell you.

Can you imagine what’s going through David and Gillian’s mind when they are fully aware of what fans want them to do? Mulder and Scully tease us with their pent up passion and desire and it grows episode after episode and it’s driving us crazy for them to jump in the sack. Mulder and Scully have such explosive natural chemistry and just adding a little passion and desire will make fans return just to speculate when they are going to do it. This drove me mad with anticipation and kept me glued to the show week after week. Now that I think about it, Mulder and Scully tortured me, but I forgive them.

Well SA88, Gillian's wish eventually came true and our wish of course. But I still think it was good they didn't jump in the bed too early. But when they did, Mulder sure was one lucky SOB.
By the way, thanks for these quotes. I read em all before but it's always good to read them again and it's great to have them all in one thread. :)

David Duchovny 2002

• David Duchovny talked about his relationship with Gillian, during which they showed the "Existence" kiss. He called their relationship "a marriage in itself, with all the love and discomfort that comes with that." O'Brien asked "is it more love or more discomfort?" And David said, "It depends on the day, but overall there's more love there." O"Brien then asked "Do you like her?" And David said "Yeah I do." Then they joked around about that becoming a sound byte, and David says "Now you'll ask 'Do you hate her?' and cut in my reply "Yes I do." And O'Brien playfully did just that - apparently to illustrate how the media has distorted things between David and Gillian in the past. -- (Access Hollywood, May 2002: transcribed by Iris)

• "I feel like I've split up from The X-Files more times than Liz Taylor [has divorced]," Duchovny cracks. "What remains is really just a sense of satisfaction for what the show has been and for the people I've been able to work with -- Gillian especially." -- (TV Guide 'The Exit Files' May 18-24, 2002 by Mark Nollinger)

David Duchovny 2001

• You also finally gave The X-Files viewers what they wanted and kissed Agent Scully in your final episode. Yes, I did finally kiss Gillian. Originally, I was supposed to kiss her on the forehead. I said, "Come on, we've been teasing for so long, let's have a real kiss. Let's make it a romantic ending." -- (E! Online Q&A by Jeanne Wolf, June 6, 2001)

• Although Duchovny and Anderson didn't enjoy a cozy friendship off-screen, Duchovny nonetheless found the last day--the moment of the big kiss--the culmination of years of the characters' pent-up attraction, to be "very emotional. It kind of crept up on me. It crept up on all of us. I just wanted to keep shooting that scene and hold on to it, but it had to end. -- ("Alien Notions" LA Times By Rachel Abramowitz, June 6, 2001)

Kim Manners commentary on The X-Files 8th Season DVD -
"As they come together to kiss," Manners says, "you'll see the camera pull out of the door and that was the last shot of David and Gillian together. We wrapped and David and Gillian stood in that room together alone and held each other for a good five minutes. They didn't talk. They didn't move. They just held each other, tears running down their faces." -- Toronto Sun: Showbiz

David Duchovny 1998

•"We have a working relationship that works for us on the set. She's very focused. She doesn't move on unless she's happy with what she's done, which is nice, especially in a film. On a TV show, sometimes it's two in the morning and you want to get home. It was a decent take; it wasn't your best, but it was good enough and you can sleep. But she usually does another one at that point, which I always find pretty impressive." -- (Perenson, Melissa. "Fox Mulder Goes Hollywood." Sci-Fi Entertainment Dec. 1998)

• "When I play a scene with Gillian Anderson, there are always little looks between us which mean 'what do you think about what's happening?' It's a little as if we have secrets between us. Everything is conveyed by communication beyond words. Perhaps, after all, you could interpret that as love. But from that to imagining Mulder and Scully as a couple? I don't think that's going to happen one day." -- (Duchovny X-Rayed. Nov, 1998)

• [Translated back into English from German] Q: We haven't talked about your partner Gillian Anderson. It was rumored that the two of you had had an affair. A: "Gillian and I have a brother-sister relationship. If you work with someone daily for twelve hours, that person, if she is smart - and Gillian is smart - shouldn't want to meet the other person after hours. That's also true for the other way round." Q: Can you remember being naked in Gillian Anderson's trailer? [referring, I think, to a GA interview where she said she'd seen David naked in her trailer and he was in 'good shape.'] A: "I'd mixed up the trailers. I thought it was mine, I went in and stripped down. Gillian was more shocked than I was." -- (Loessl, Ulrich. "Mr. X." German GQ Oct. 1998)

• "We work long hours together, many months out of the year, we're both still alive and that's a testament to a successful relationship. I trust her to show up and be prepared and not waste my time, and she trusts me to do the same. We don't socialise." -- (Brooks, Libby. "Agent Provocative." The Guardian. 31 July 1998)

• "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." -- (Charlie Rose. PBS 18 June 1998)

David Duchovny 1998

• "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." -- (Charlie Rose. PBS 18 June 1998)

• "It's like being married to somebody, but it's like being married when Sun Myung Moon said, 'You go with that one.' So some days it's great and some days it's not. It's a working relationship that is extremely close and has all the joys and difficulties of that.'' -- (Strauss, Bob. X Marks the New Spot: Move From TV to Film a Trick for Carter and Duchovny." Boston Globe 14 June 1998: N-09)

• "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." Mixon, Veronica. -- ("William Shatner's Heir Apparent, or America's Newest Leading Man?" Online. E! Online. Internet. 11 June 1998)

• When asked if they discuss their personal problems with each other: "Not really. I mean occasionally if the problems are pressing they come to work. Professionally you try and leave your problems at home, but sometimes they come to work because you can deal with them better with the people you work with. But I wouldn't say that I am a confidante of hers and she is not a confidante of mine. We have a good working relationship, and if she needed help I'd definitely be there but I don't think I'd be the first person she'd come to." -- (Cummings, Jean. "Past and Future." X-Posé Special Issue No. 4 1998).

• The rumor is that you and Gillian shot a take where you kissed. True?
"No, no, no. No. It was just like, we were acting like it was, like, a gross carnal coupling, you know? It was a joke for the crew and forus. The actual kissing and you know - that was never a part of the movie and so we never would have shot that, no. The only time we did that was as a joke. Gillian and I did it to our liking and then I said, you know, "Let's do one, let's do one where we - I take you up against the wall here." But that was never- there was never any thought - we were outside of the camera's view actually at that point, so that's not even on film." -- (TV Guide, 1998)
