Gillian Anderson: Mulder and Scully are in love

When “The X-Files” returns on Jan. 24, don’t expect one of those highfalutin reboots: The six new episodes are all about continuity — down to star Gillian Anderson’s signature hair color. Back in 1993, when the Fox show first aired, Anderson dyed her blond hair red to play FBI Special Agent Dana Scully. This time, she opted for wigs. “The first [wig] wasn’t quite the right red, so in some light it came off as strawberry,” she tells The Post. “The second wig was more the original color.” The coherence goes deeper than hair c ...

The truth is out there? Ha!

For “X-Files” fans, it seemed like some of the show’s greatest mysteries would remain unsolved. Like whatever happened to that alien colonization plan? Did they just give up? Is Scully’s baby going to save the world? And did no one else really notice that giant spaceship taking off from Antarctica? The series finale, in 2002, was a little vague. And the second movie, “The X-Files: I Want to Believe,” didn’t deal with the show’s mythology at all. Dammit — the cornfields, the bees, the oil. Will the Smoking Man ever get a novel published? ...

Gillian Anderson goes Gothic as Miss Havisham on ‘Great Expectations’

Anyone who remembers Gillian Anderson from her days as the attractive Dana Scully on “The X-Files” is in for quite a shock when they see her as Miss Havisham, the jilted bride of “Great Expectations” and one of Charles Dickens’ most unforgettable characters. Anderson is unrecognizable: She wears a tattered, yellowing wedding dress. Her hair, matted with unkempt ringlet curls, is the wreckage of an upswept “do.” Her skin, ghostly white, is marred by cracked lips. As played by Anderson, Havisham is in a state of decay as awful as the rotting English man ... [Continua a leggere]

'X' man's evolution

David Duchovny talks marriage, regret and how he’s put the past behind him

Talk about moving out of your comfort zone. For his stage debut, David Duchovny chose Neil LaBute’s “The Break of Noon” — which features the former FBI Special Agent Fox Mulder in every scene of its intermissionless run. “It’s an hour and 35 minutes of me, pretty much,” Duchovny tells The Post. “Nobody can stand much more than that.” The boyish-looking 50-year-old grew up in Manhattan. He graduated from Princeton University and was well on his way to a doctorate in English lit from Yale when he started acting. After “The X-Fil ... [Continua a leggere]


'X-Files' star returns to his roots as Agent Fox Mulder, but doesn't buy into 'truth is out there' mythology

So what if it's been a decade since "The X-Files: Fight the Future" graced the silver screen and six years since the hit paranormal investigation series went off the air? All that time, X-Philes have been fidgeting with excitement over the day when they'd finally see iconic FBI agents Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) back in action. Now, the truth is out there. The wait is almost over. "The X-Files: I Want to Believe" is scheduled to land on July 25, and it's destined to make a believer out of you. Fresh off the movie's four-month shoot in and around Vancouver, Du ... [Continua a leggere]

‘Harsh’ words for network boss

“X-FILES” creator Chris Carter is fuming that Fox TV chief Doug Herzog canned his new sci-fi show “Harsh Realm” after only a few episodes.

Now, the conflict has clouded the already uncertain future of the “X-Files.” “I don’t think that the man who is running the network now got the show or even watched it,” Carter told The Post yesterday. “Someone over there made the decision [to yank it]. [Herzog] was the one that delivered the message – so I blame the messenger.” “Harsh Realm,” a military-themed series set in a virtual reality world, struggled to find viewers since its debut on Oct. 8. The bad situation was the result of Fox not heavily promo ... [Continua a leggere]

Future of ‘X-Files’ is uncertain

AFTER six years on the air, the future of the “X-Files” is still cloudy.

When the show begins its seventh season on Nov. 7, it may be the beginning of the end for the long-running series about two FBI agents who specialize in investigating the paranormal. Ever since David Duchovny – who plays one of the two FBI agents – announced last summer that he wanted to leave the show when his contract expired at the end of this year, the show’s eighth season has been in jeopardy. Creator Chris Carter’s contract with the show is also expiring this year. Now there has even been talk that his co-star, Gillian Anderson, wants to leave &nda ... [Continua a leggere]

Keeping ‘em ‘X’-cited

MARK Snow is one of the most important contributors to the hit Fox series “The X-Files,” but he’s never appeared in an episode, never directed one and never written a single plot twist for the show’s famously bizarre stories. Snow, a Brooklyn kid transplanted to the West Coast, is the music-driven series’ chief composer. While “The X-Files” promises that “The truth is out there” and explores the possibility of alien life on Earth, Snow is decidedly grounded in his own life. He’s a Juilliard graduate who has written for & ... [Continua a leggere]
