TVgen Interview with Chris Carter

TV Guide: Making an X-Files movie during the run of the series could be considered the riskiest thing you've ever done.Chris Carter: I guess the perceived risk is that you can answer too many questions. The X-Files has always been about posing questions, and any time you give an answer, then you pull the rug out from under people. But in a movie, you can't do that. You have to have a beginning, middle and end, and there has to be a big revelation, there has to be something monumental in the movie. Something has to change for the characters. And of course, this is a movie that is going t ... [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]

X Marks Its Spot

The cult series has already started shooting coming season episodes in its new Southern California base. But the show won’t reflect–or shed–any more light.

There goes that rainy day feeling again. And here comes the sun. As “The X-Files” moves into its sixth season, the Truth Is no longer Out There in dark and rainy Vancouver, the drama’s home base since its 1993 premiere. Series creator and executive producer Chris Carter, stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson and select crew members have all migrated from Canada to sunny Los Angeles, and are deep into production on new episodes. But don’t expect Fox Mulder and Dana Scully, the two FBI agents portrayed by Duchovny and Anderson who hunt down aliens, cons ... [Continua a leggere]

Barbie è mia

Tempi duri per David Duchovny che non riesce ad abituarsi alla popolarità… adesso dovrà vedersela anche con un mare di bambini che, giocando col bambolotto a forma di David (presto sul mercato), penseranno di poterlo trattare come un amico di Barbie…

Ormai sembra proprio che non ci siano più dubbi, il programma televisivo che identificherà questa fine di millennio sarà The X-files. Scongiurato il pericolo che la serie finisse quest’anno, i due protagonisti David Duchovny e Gillian Anderson hanno firmato un contratto che li lega al serial dell’occulto per altre due stagioni, senza dimenticare il film tratto dalle loro avventure televisive, titolo provvisorio Fight the Future, che uscirà in Italia dopo le vacanze estive. David ha tra l’altro vinto la sua battaglia con la casa di produzione per s ... [Continua a leggere]
