Chris Carter comes clean

The truth about the X-Files

HOLLYWOOD — There are a few truths Chris Carter is willing to share about The X-Files, the phenomenon he created five years ago. The series, in which special agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully investigate mysterious occurrences, has spawned The X-Files movie that opens Friday. “Fox and Dana, as played by David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson, are the reason the show is so popular. They are the ones who make the stories connect with the audiences,” insists Carter. “At the original auditions, I saw dozens of people but the moment David and Gillian walked in th ...

Gamespot Interview with Gillian Anderson

Q: With your work moving from TV and film to CD-ROM: First off, does it change, and secondly, how does the electronic industry, the CD-ROM industry, change how you are approaching your craft, your industry, your job?A: OK, let's start with the first question. The CD-ROM was very different than anything I've been involved in before. It wasn't really so much about acting, it was about hitting marks, it was about leading the other characters towards an end, and what that meant was standing in one spot saying the same lines in different ways, or saying lines that were positive and negative ...

Scully and Mulder's X-cellent Adventure - David Duchovny

Details - Giugno 1998

For five years, they have fought mutant sewer dwellers, seven-foot she-beasts, and chain-smoking double agents. Now, have alien forces finally taken possession of Scully and Mulder? Rob Tannenbaum goes to the set of the X-Files Movie and investigates the conspiracy surrounding the conspiracy.

David Duchovny doesn't look much better than his costar, and not only because of the bullet wound Fox Mulder has taken just below the hairline. It's Day 54 of the shoot, a Friday in late August, and all during this difficult summer the cast has raced to finish the film in time to start the fifth season of the series. The film--which will be released on June 19, as a bridge to a sixth season starting in the fall--is set partly in the Antarctic, so the crew has built a fake snowscape inside a Hollywood soundstage. Their fabrication appears so genuine, you might almost believe the c ... [Continua a leggere]

Scully and Mulder's X-cellent Adventure - Gillian Anderson

For five years, they have fought mutant sewer dwellers, seven-foot she-beasts, and chain-smoking double agents. Now, have alien forces finally taken possession of Scully and Mulder? Rob Tannenbaum goes to the set of the X-Files Movie and investigates the conspiracy surrounding the conspiracy.

Gillian Anderson looks like hell. She's as pale as a mime-school applicant, her delft-blue eyes are underlined with dark blurs, her red hair is as filthy as a mud puddle. She looks like someone you'd see being shoved into a van on Cops. Anderson has to look like this, though, because Dana Scully has just seen as alien.“I've been through some . . . stuff, “ Anderson tells me hesitantly from inside a big parka, and that's the whole of her explanation. “Stuff “ is one of the euphemisms used on the Hollywood set of the X-Files movie, a secretive site of controlled in ...

Moment Of Truth

Expectations are running high as the popular X-Files crosses over from TV to the big screen

HOLLYWOOD — It’s undeniable. The X-Factor truth will be out there in a few weeks. Believe no one until then. Days from now we will discover whether TV’s X-Files will become a movie hit. Opening Friday, Chris Carter’s film creation is a $60-million exercise in Star Trek-like cross-pollination, although unlike Star Trek and The Next Generation, the series is still airing. So like what’s going on? This is clear. The X-Files: Fight The Future tries to exploit what makes the series popular. That would be the unspoken bond between David Duchovny’s Fox ...

Details Magazine

I’m warned about Chris Carter by Duchovny, who knows a lot about misleading exteriors. Inside Carter’s office on the Fox lot, not far away from the [movie] set, the creator of The X-Files seems calmly immune to the rigors of filmmaking. He is a handsome man, graying and shaggy-haired, sitting in an elegantly appointed, shuttered office, bowls of candy and fruit on various dark wood desks, a turquoise surfboard in a corner, an episode mapped out in index cards on a bulletin board. It could be the office of any other successful executive, except for a copy of ... [Continua a leggere]

Mulder and Scully's Make Out Session

Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny shared a red-hot kiss on the set of their movie, The X-Files: Fight the Future — but read no further if you want to preserve the surprise.

The famously platonic Mulder and Scully stop just short of smooching in the flick, but the actors took it further during filming, director Rob Bowman tells our Jeanne Wolf. "I can tell you what's not in the film is a blast," he says. "After we did six or seven takes, I said, 'Cut, print. Got it. Thank you very much.' They said, "No, we'd like to go one more time.' So they started the scene. And they got right into the drama, coming closer and closer. And then tongues came out. And then they slapped up against the wall. She drove him up against the wall. Oh, it was fabulous." But wait: It get ... [Continua a leggere]

50 most beautiful people, 1998

CHRIS CARTER TV PRODUCER Not until he made paranoia and paranormal creepiness prime-time staples did fair-haired surfer dude and The X-Files creator Chris Carter reveal the dark side lurking beneath his shimmery mane. His cult show achieves out-of-this-world ratings, but the former editor of Surfing magazine admits that when he began dealing more with gloom than good vibrations, “a lot of people looked at me and didn’t know where it came from.” Perhaps from beyond? No, from the Los Angeles suburb of Bellflower, where Carter, 41, was voted Mr. Smile and Mr. Fli ... [Continua a leggere]

X-Files cameraman pictures L.A.

Joel Ransom hasn’t decided if he’ll follow the show to California, but his memories of doing it here are still vivid and moody.

If Joel Ransom has done his job, nothing that meets the eye during tomorrow’s season finale of The X-Files will seem artificially posed, self-conscious or self-serving. As the New Westminster-born, Port Moody-raised director of photography for The X-Files during its final season in the Lower Mainland, Ransom worked cheek-by-jowl with directors like Rob Bowman, Kim Manners and R.W. (Bob) Goodwin, supervising a tight-knit crew of Vancouver-based lighting technicians and camera operators (Marty McInally, Simon Jori, Mark Cohen, among others) to create some of the most compe ...

Chris Carter, X-pert

The master of shadowy mystery sheds light on The X-Files’ high-risk journey to the big screen

There’s not much time left. It’s early May, two weeks before The X-Files’ fifth-season finale airs and just little more than a month before “The X-Files” opens. The deadlines are fast approaching, but for a man who’s spending every waking minute in editing rooms putting the finishing touches on his TV and movie projects, creator-executive producer Chris Carter shows little sign of wear. Sporting a deep tan magnified by the white T-shirt he wears in his unassuming bungalow office on the Twentieth Century Fox lot, Carter admits he was able to s ... [Continua a leggere]

X-Files creator bids B.C. sad adieu

The creator and executive-producer of The X-Files says it was a wrenching decision to move the popular television series to its new home in Los Angeles.

Chris Carter says he was nearly overcome with emotion when he broke the news late Friday night to his Vancouver crew, which was shooting one of the few remaining episodes of the season at a Kingsway Street motel. Carter said that, in the end, he owed it to his two stars, David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson, to allow them to return to their homes after five years of working abroad. In an interview by phone from Los Angeles Sunday, Carter admitted that he had promised Duchovny and Anderson that the show would not stay in Vancouver indefinitely. Duchovny told several ...

Vancouver Sun

Shaken, stirred and satisfied. That’s how X-Files creator Chris Carter felt after seeing the cast and crew of his new TV series Harsh Realm reproduce the battle-scarred streets of Sarajevo down to the last bullet-scarred detail last weekend on a block-long stretch of Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. “Believe me, I don’t consider myself to be a philosopher,” Carter said, taking in the scene in his characteristic even-tempered, California surfer-dude voice. “This is the amazing thing: I’m telling stories that I want to tell and people seem t ...

Gillian Anderson: Not what you'd expect

There's nothing spooky about this rising X-Files star who balances family priorities with fierce ambition.

Five years ago, a 24-year-old Gillian Anderson walked onto the set of The X-Files a virtual unknown. Series creator Chris Carter had fought to cast the diminutive unemployed actress, managing to convince Fox execs her persona was right for that of no-nonsense FBI agent Dana Scully. From Day One, she was second banana to the more experienced, better-paid David Duchovny as agent Fox Mulder. All that has changed. No longer the sidekick, Gillian (pronounced "Jillian") Anderson has watched her popularity propel her to the top tier of her profession, financially and artistically. Now, she says, sh ...

Saranno SeX-files?

Approda in Tv la quarta, inedita serie e cresce l’attesa per una love-story tra i due protagonisti. Tra demoni e api assassine, i due agenti del paranormale avvicinano labbra e cuori, ma rimandano al prossimo futuro il divampare della passione: l’occasione migliore (e forse l’ultima) nel segretissimo film in lavorazione.

L’ama o non l’ama? È da quattro serie che gli spettatori del telefilm “X-files” aspettano un gesto, almeno una parola che scopra il fuoco che arde sotto la cenere. L’agente Mulder, finora, si sempre negato: modi decisi, sguardo di ghiaccio, certe volte strapazza un po’ troppo la collega Scully, consapevole di non credere mai fino in fondo ai risvolti paranormali dei loro casi. A tratti i loro sguardi si incrociano, sembrano andare al di là dell’investigazione; ma sono solo attimi, prevale sempre la routine dell’indagine. Chris Cart ... [Continua a leggere]
