They play intrepid FBI special agents in Fox's The X-Files but David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson looked far from ready for action at Monday night's Webby Awards.
The pair each showed off injuries they recently sustained as they attended the event in New York City with Duchovny wearing his left arm in a sling and Anderson using crutches due to a broken foot.
The two stars are busy preparing to return to The X-Files for another limited season.
Their characters Fox Mulder and Dana Scully will continue their investigations into the paranormal and conspiracies in 10 new episodes.
Production is set to begin this summer so they will have time to recover and heal before heading to Vancouver, Canada, where the show is filmed.
While Duchovny has not revealed why his arm is in a sling, Anderson spoke about her injury while at the BAFTA Television Awards in London at the weekend.
She said she fractured her foot after jumping into a swimming pool in Costa Rica that turned out to be shallower than she thought.
She even posted a shot of her medical boot as she sat in the back of a car to her Instagram a week ago jokingly calling it: 'My Stormtrooper look.'
But the sight of both of them injured sent Twitter into a frenzy with fans expressing concern.
Earlier on Monday, the two had attended the Fox Upfront Presentation in New York with Anderson ditching the crutches as she stood to pose for photos.
The actress wore a sleeveless black dress dotted with red roses and managed to get her broken foot into black sandals for the occasion.
Duchovny was dressed in faded black jeans with a dark polo shirt and jacket along with a pair of Adidas trainers.
The X-Files was initially revived with six episodes in early 2016 and proved wildly popular.
The series created by Chris Carter ran from 1993 to 2002 although Duchovny left in 2000 after seven seasons.
