Video: X Files Reunion – David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson Caught Kissing
With the news that The X-Files is returning to television, following a thirteen year break, it would seem only natural that the stars of the hit series, David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson, were spotted sharing a kiss. Was it a friendly kiss or was it a more than friends kiss?
While a number of tabloids have ran with the theory that the couple are really in love, even though filming and working together ended more than 13 years ago, Anderson has spoken out about the theory in an interview with the Huffington Post. Anderson answered the question about the alleged romance saying,
“Now that it’s over, I can tell you: no. It’s a nice idea, but it’s not going to happen.” She continued, “I think we know each other too well. I think we probably know each other better than we know our spouses at any time that we might have had spouses.”
Was there a spark between the two actors? According to Anderson, there was/is an attraction and while there may be more than an attraction, she has said, “it is not going to happen.”
Despite Anderson’s denial, Duchovny and Anderson were spotted out in NY at a local bar, The Cutting Room, where Anderson joined Duchovny on stage as he debuted his album, Hell Or Highwater with a concert. Gillian took the stage during David’s encore performance, asking, ‘Can we play some real music, please?’ He responded by asking: ‘Is there anything you’re in the mood for perhaps?’ and she responded ‘Do you guys know Helpless?’ and then it happened, she walked by David and kissed him on the mouth and stood on the side by backup singers as their band played the Neil Young song.
The original X-Files was a huge hit and FOX is banking on the fact that a six-episode follow up will also be a huge hit. The network has ordered another chapter of The X-Files, with stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson re-inhabiting their roles as iconic FBI Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully. The X-Files was one of the longest-running sci-fi series in network television history.
