Q: Can you remember being naked in Gillian Anderson’s trailer? [referring, I think, to a GA interview where she said she’d seen David naked in her trailer and he was in ‘good shape.’]
DD: “I’d mixed up the trailers. I thought it was mine, I went in and stripped down. Gillian was more shocked than I was.” Loessl, Ulrich. “Mr. X.” German GQ Oct. 1998.
“The second-to-last-day, when I shot my last scene with Gillian, was very emotional and very sad. I really hadn’t pondered the weight of eight years coming to a close until I was in the middle of the scene and realized that this would be the last time I was going to do Mulder and Scully on the show. It was sad and very heavy, but not depressing. It was an acknowledgement of a lot of time, effort and love.” (Starlog, 2001)
“With that in mind, there are a few people I would like to thank. First and foremost David Duchovny, my cohort in crime, without you I wouldn’t be here, (she looks over at him and he says, “Well I read your name,” meaning he read her name and gave her her award, so of course she wouldn’t be there, and she laughs softly.) You amaze me!” (SAG Award Acceptance Speech, ’97)
“She’s the other one holding the other side of the rope. I mean, I rely on her, I trust her, and she does me.” - DD

My special thanks to David Duchovny.
Your talent has always inspired me -
without YOUR Mulder there would be no Scully.
