Gillian confirms ‘X-Files’ exit
“The X-Files” actress Gillian Anderson, who reprised her role as FBI agent Dana Scully for the revived sci-fi show, has been sharing Instagram photos and videos of her longtime costars off-camera, between takes and after finishing work for the series’ 11th season.
Posting a picture with her onscreen partner David Duchovny, Anderson said, “25 years of night shoots, 25 years of frozen lips, 25 years of friendship. Happy wrap, @davidduchovny. Thanks for taking this ride with me.”
The actress previously told TV Insider of her impending exit, “I’ve said from the beginning, this is it for me. I was a bit surprised by people’s [shocked] reaction to my announcement… because my understanding was that this was a single season.”
Anderson is also a cast member of the fantasy series “American Gods.”—OLIVER PULUMBARIT
