Speaking on The Jonathan Ross Show, Gillian confessed that when they were asked to relaunch the sci-fi drama – which premiered in 1993 – she was offered half the salary that David was getting.
She told a shocked Jonathan: “I knew that from the beginning and there was a reason why [David 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.”
The 47-year-old continued: “We got the phone call with what the offer is, we knew what David’s offer was this time around 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.”
“So even now, you mean the relaunch?” Jonathan asked.
Gillian then replied: “Last year. Yes. I don’t know it was silly. So it’s always been that David’s team does the negotiating and then I just say, [I want what he’s having] basically.”
With the revived series proving so popular, Fox’s Entertainment President David Madden recently enthused that the broadcasters “would love to do more [episodes]” after the current run finishes.
However, Gillian insists that nothing has been finalised just yet, despite not being opposed to the idea.
She revealed: “They haven’t come to us. I don’t know, it is again all about schedule… 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 Jonathan Ross Show airs tomorrow night at 9.30pm on ITV. Other guests include Glenn Close, David Baddiel and Marlon Wayans.
