EXCLUSIVE: David Duchovny On Gillian Anderson's 'X-Files' Exit: ‘I Can’t Imagine It Without Scully’



Feb 9th 2018 | 9:28am | Daniel Cribb

With Gillian Anderson, aka FBI Agent Dana Scully, announcing she’ll be departing The X-Files universe at the end of the current season and showrunner Chris Carter considering continuing without her, everyone’s a little unsure of what to expect moving forward, including fellow lead actor, David Duchovny.

Speaking with The Music in the lead up to his debut Australian tour, the US actor opened up on the subject, stating he couldn’t "imagine the show without Mulder and Scully".

"I love the people that I’ve worked with; I love Gillian and Chris and I want them to be doing what they want to do," Duchovny said.

"There’s no way I want Gillian to be doing the show if she doesn’t want to be doing it, and yet, I want people to do work that they’re really good at, so we’ll see what happens.

"I’m just thankful we got to do as much as we did."

Season 11 is halfway through airing and Duchovny said fans knowing it would be Gillian’s last has given it a different flavour to the one they initially set out to make.

"To me, the unfortunate thing about Gillian saying that she was done is that there’s kind of a mourning sense about the whole season, when in fact, what I’d love is that people really recognise that these are 10 excellent episodes — like, way better than the six we did a few years ago."

Despite stating in the past the show wouldn’t continue without Gillian, in a recent interview with Digital Spy, Carter made comments that suggested he’d changed his mind.

"I think that certainly The X-Files has more life in it, there are more stories to tell, with Gillian or without," Carter said.

Duchovny’s new album, Every Third Thought, is out to today; check out all of his upcoming Australian tour dates in theGuide.

Exclusive: David Duchovny Focuses on 'X-Files' Present, Not Future

By John Connor Coulston - February 9, 2018

The X-Files is in the midst of its second revival season on FOX, with Gillian Anderson promising this will be the last time she reprises her role as FBI agent Dana Scully. Whether the show will go on without her has been a major topic of debate, but co-star David Duchovny wants fans to focus on what is directly ahead.

"It's a little cart before the horse, for me," Duchovny told PopCulture.com Friday in an interview. "It’s like, OK, there are issues to deal with or whatever, but let's talk about the show. Let’s not talk about hypotheticals."

He said he has not given much thought about Anderson’s exit and whether he he sees himself continuing as fellow agent Fox Mulder. Instead, he is all about X-Files’ current season, which is six episodes into its 10-episode order.

The actor thinks speculators are getting ahead of themselves and should just enjoy the remainder of Scully and Mulder's run.

"To me, it's unfortunate that's kind of like 'the headline' because, to me, the headline is: We just made 10 really kick-ass episodes of television, and please enjoy and don't mourn the death of this show quite yet," Duchovny said.

Duchovny then added an old-time retort his father would tell him: "If my grandmother had wheels, she'd be a trolley.”

Show creator Chris Carter recently chimed in about the future of the show without Anderson. He is unsure where the 25-year-old franchise will go from here.

"I think that certainly The X-Files has more life in it, there are more stories to tell, with Gillian or without," Carter told Digital Spy. "I'm sorry to see her go, I've never actually considered doing this show without her, so is this the end? It's the end of something, I don't know if it's the beginning of something new. But certainly we will have to all put our heads together and figure out where to go from here."

In addition to Duchovny's X-Files role, he has a new album of original songs, Every Third Thought, out now on PledgeMusic and Spotify.

The X-Files airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET on FOX.
