Reading the script for the new series was ‘nice and strangely emotional,’ says actor. Once and future X-Files star David Duchovny ‘started crying reading the first page’ of the new X-Files script, the actor told Entertainment Weekly, just from seeing the names of the show’s characters written down on the page. The tears were of joy, of course and the revival is really happening.
“I just read it 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. It took a long time to get all the people in the same place.
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].”
Duchovny, along with co-star Gillian Anderson appear to be hyping the show’s revival by interacting with enthusiastic Tumbler fan community.
He recently tweeted to Anderson that the two should sing together in the summer while they will both be shooting the six-episode revival. She responded with a reference to a famous line from their show.
“I’ll follow you anywhere my little legs will carry me Double D. Within reason.”
