Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny reunited as Mulder and Scully at a special Comic-Con X-Filespanel yesterday (July 18).
The duo, who found fame as FBI agents in the cult sci-fi series, celebrated the show's 20th birthday alongside creators and writers Chris Carter, Vince Gilligan, Howard Gordon and John Shiban at the fan convention in San Diego.
Duchovny and Anderson both declared an interest in bringing Mulder and Scully back for another big screen outing, while showrunner Carter said that seeing the fan response at Comic-Con was inspiring.
"You need a reason to get excited about doing it again… and this [crowd response] is very exciting," said Carter
The lead actors both joked about the fan interest in their characters' love lives and will-they-won't-they romance.
When asked by one fan what they would do in a real date, Anderson deadpanned: "Have sex." Duchovny added: "And then maybe have dinner."
