With the new series of The X-Files currently filming in Vancouver, the beautiful Gillain Anderson has been talking about what fans can expect…
The actress said: “[It’s] strange to be back here. This is a lot of flashbacks, a lot of deja vu, a lot of remembering dynamics – and it’s… a thicker substance to wade through than I’d thought… It feels like it’s been a long time since I’ve played her. I can’t remember what year the movie was, but it felt like [Scully] was further away from me than I’d thought she would be. But I’ve also worked really hard at putting her entirely to sleep, so that was successful; she’s just taken longer to wake up.”
It’s weird to think that she’s having a job finding Scully again as, let’s be honest, to most of us she’ll always be Scully, but we have no doubt she’ll do great things.
But what of the show itself? WEll, she’s only read the script of the first two episodes so far: “[It’s] Slow. Intense. And it’s setting groundwork, so it’s got a particular role to play. It does exactly what it needs to do. What’s a single word for fulfilling that requirement? Functional? Appropriate? Functional works. Slow, intense and functional.”
We have a lot of faith and anticipation in the return of Mulder and Scully… 2016’s premiere can’t come fast enough.
