Gillian Anderson said she hasn’t been approached about filming more X-Files episodes and also addressed her struggle to get equal pay to her long-time co-star, David Duchovny.
The sci-fi series returned for six episodes last month and Anderson, who plays FBI Special Agent Dana Scully on the popular sci-fi TV series, said she’s not sure what the future has in store.
“They haven’t come to us. I don’t know – it’s all about schedule,” she said on The Jonathan Ross Show, which airs tomorrow. “It’s about whether it matches up.
“If it matched up and a few other things were in place – you know, we’re not getting any younger… all the boxes need to be ticked. You know what I mean!”
The 47-year-old actress, who worked along David Duchovny (above) on the show, also discussed her struggle to get equal pay to her long-time co-star.
“I knew that from the beginning, there was a reason why [Duchovny was being paid more than me], because I was starting from nothing and he had just done a big film. But there was a certain point where we were doing the same amount of work and it was time to renegotiate. And I did,” she said.
“We got the phone call with what the offer is. We knew what David’s offer was this time around [for the relaunch], and it was twice as much as my offer was. Which is stupid really, because I’m going to find out and worked really hard for parity back then, and was kind of shocked.
“It’s always been that David’s team does the negotiating, and then I just say, [I want what he’s having] basically.”
Despite proving a big hit with the audience when it was re-launched on FOX last month, the new six-part series of The X Files received mixed reviews from critics.
USA Today said “As the show’s oft-repeated catchphrase goes, the truth is out there — and the truth may be that The X-Files no longer has any new tricks to show us.”
Tim Goodman of the Hollywood Reporter, “What we’re left with is a very underwhelming hour that will force even die hard fans (and yes, I was one of them) to consider whether pushing onward is really worth the time.”
Close to home The Telegraph’s view wasn’t much better. It’s critic said, “Reminding audiences of decades-old disappointment probably wasn’t the sort of nostalgia that was intended when the notion of reviving The X-Files as a “six hour-event” was conceived, but, sadly, that’s the impression left by this first episode”.
