Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny have been making headlines ahead of the Fox Network’s decision to revive The X-Files for a six-episode mini-season this year. The two stars from the classic series have talked to interviewers about the new episodes, about Anderson’s feminism and bisexuality and how Duchovny believes that Agent Fox Mulder is “the worst FBI agent of all time.”

On Saturday, the Hollywood Reporter quoted Duchovny about some of his hopes and expectations for the new version of the show, which ran for nine seasons and spawned two feature films.
Duchovny — who played the lead in the Showtime series Californication — said that both he and Anderson have grown as actors since the X-Files.
“If I were to look back at the first or second year of the show, I wouldn’t try to act like that guy,” Duchovny told the Reporter. “I’m capable of doing more. She’s capable of doing more. It’ll be interesting to see how we keep the characters the same but also the actors are better.”
He went on to say that the show’s writers and producers are hoping to make the new episodes work both as a stand-alone series for newcomers and as a continuation of the original program for returning fans.
