It’s good to know when a script is not only good, but powerful in an emotional sense. For X-Files star David Duchoney, he apparently realized that after only reading one page of the script for the upcoming sequel series.

“I got the first script this morning,” the actor told EW during a recent interview. “I just read it about an hour ago and I started crying reading the first page. It was just so strange to see the names on the page. It had nothing to do with the script itself. It was just like, I’d been talking about this for a long time. We’d been planning it for a long time. It took a long time to get all the people in the same place and get the deal with Fox. So let’s say two years we’ve been talking about doing it. Now it’s the fun part. Now we actually get to do it. That was nice and strangely emotional for me, and I’ll have to figure out how to use that [in the performance].”

Good to know right? Sadly, he commented on WHAT was in the script, but let’s be honest, did we really expect that?
