Gillian Anderson Says She's Done with 'The X-Files' After Season 11: 'This Will Be it for Me'

Gillian Anderson has announced that season 11 of The X-Files will be her last one.

The 49-year-old actress, who has been playing Dana Scully on and off since the show debuted on Fox in 1993, told press at 2017 New York Comic Con on Sunday (October 8) that she was probably done with the character/series after the upcoming season, the second season in the revival.

“No, no, I think this will be it for me,” Gillian expressed while sitting alongside co-stars David Duchovny and Mitch Pileggi, as well as creator Chris Carter.

“Because it felt like it wasn’t over,” Gillian added about doing season eleven (via ScreenRant). “It didn’t feel like we necessarily deliver everything the fans were expecting of us last time, and so it was that.”

Gillian Anderson & David Duchovny Dish on Their Professional Relationship

David Duchovny proudly shows off his star on The Hollywood Walk of Fame during the ceremony held on Monday (January 25) in Hollywood.

The 55-year-old actor and Gillian Anderson, his The X-Files co-star, graced the cover of Variety‘s recent issue, where they dished on their current relationship.

Here’s what they said about working together:

“The crucible of doing that show made monsters out of both of us. Once we got to step back, it was like, ‘Oh, wow, we really like each other. I didn’t know that was going to happen. The way we work together has changed,” David said. “Whatever rapport we have as actors, we earned. It’s nice to be able to play that without ever even feeling like you’re playing it.”

“Our relationship has definitely become a proper friendship over the last few years. I think we’re more on each other’s side. We’re more aware of the other’s needs, wants, concerns, and mindful to take those into consideration— and just sharing more about our experiences in the moment, under the sudden realization that we’re both in this together, and wouldn’t it be nice if it were a collaboration?” Gillian added.

Gillian opened up more about the topic with The Daily Beast saying she thinks it’s “important that [the issue] gets heard and voiced. It was shocking to me, given all the work that I had done in the past to get us to be paid fairly. I worked really hard toward that and finally got somewhere with it.”

Although she eventually took home the same amount as David she said, “It is…sad. It is sad.”
