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.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
