Files put the `X' in sexy!
And few stars have caused such a stir as David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson - now known worldwide as special agents Mulder and Scully.
For the benefit of anyone who has been living on a different planet, Mulder and Scully are a highly unconventional FBI team.
They work undercover to investigate baffling cases of the paranormal.
HE believes in the forces of the unknown (he's not known as Spooky for nothing).
But SHE is a real Doubting Thomasina.
Together, however, they make a formidable team - and a sexy one for viewers.
Each has a fan club. One group of Scully's followers calls itself The Gillian Anderson Testosterone Brigade.
And last week, a men's magazine voted her the sexiest woman in the WORLD!
Asked how she felt about being called "the thinking man's crumpet", she replied:
"Well it's better than being the lobotomised man's crumpet."
Yet she almost failed the X Files audition, because she wasn't regarded as SEXY.
"They wanted a tall, leggy blonde with big breasts," said Gillian. Luckily, the producers came to their senses... and no one has complained!
The pair are back for a new series on BBC1. And they star on satellite in The X Files Re-opened, repeats of their second series.
Celtic fans should enjoy tonight's episode...
It's called Little Green Men.
