It is the 20th anniversary of the X-files and to celebrate costars Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny are headed to the Paley Center in New York City October 12th, 2013. The event is being billed as, “The Truth Is Here” – now doesn’t that leave for a lot of speculation? Fans have long suspected that Gillian (Scully) and David (Mulder) are a couple in real life and have been waiting to find photo proof that what they know is true.
To promote their appearance at Paley tonight Gillian and David did a Q & A with fans on Reddit and the couple encouraged fans to, “Come hang with us for the next two hours during our Ask Us (almost) Anything reddit!” and that is just what the fans did. David also said when asked, “One word to describe your 20-year journey together?” David answered: “Amazing!”
The fans asked them a variety of question, one fan asked them about a new movie X-Files 3. David was very straightforward and encouraged the fans to start a campaign, “I think Chris is working on a script. Chris is shooting a pilot right now, so he might not be working on a script, but he claims to be working on a script, and if he does do that and Fox wants to make it… Gillian will do it, I will do it, so start your writing campaign now. Seriously. We’d all love to do it. The ball is in Fox’s hands. And not Fox Mulder, Fox the studio.”
Gillian and David know that their fans are powerful, loyal and organized and will do what they want. Since David and Gillian want another X-Files movie what better way to get it than to get their fans behind them. To encourage them the couple decided to give the fans what they want, a picture of them together as a couple along with some confirmation.
At one point in the chat someone mentioned that Gillian was hot and David replied, “Yes. Gillian is every bit as hot, and hotter. It’s somewhat shocking.”
That was the tease and at the end of the chat – They uploaded the photo above with the following comment:
“thank you so much for coming by to ask us questions. We know it’s early. See you next time. We’re going to take a proof photo since so many of you have asked for it. Photo Proof!”
So what do you think CDLers, is this finally the proof we have been waiting for? Hit the comments and let us know your thoughts!
Update: A source informed me that David and Gillian came and left the Paley Center together AND were holding hands at the event!
