"There might even be more than an attraction," she acknowledged. And it's that frisson that has made it interesting in the series and continues to make it interesting.""The X-Files" shooting is scheduled to begin June 8 in Vancouver, where hopefully the series will continue the romantic relationship between FBI special agents Mulder (Duchovny) and Scully (Anderson).
Gillian Anderson/David Duchovny, also known by the Portmanteau Gillovny, is the RPF pairing of actors and writers Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny.
But it sounds like fans will just have to settle for the on-screen romance between their counterparts, Mulder and Scully. However during a Huff Post Live segment last year, Anderson had a slightly different answer, hinting that the pair once had a romantic relationship that didn’t last after the show was canceled in 2002.
In a new interview with TVLine, actor David Duchovny shot down dating rumors between him and his long-time co-star.“The whole thing about Gillian and I dating is so weird. “It’s not going to happen; we’re friends.”The dating rumors flared up after Anderson crashed an encore during Duchovny’s tour for his new album, “Hell or Highwater.” He dismissed the rumors as overspeculation about his friendly greeting. She added that the pair got too close over the years and that they shared a genuine spark.
In late 2016 Anderson started to publicly appear with writer/producer Peter Morgan at public events, causing a significant upset to some hardcore Gillovny shippers.
Although Anderson did not comment or release a statement, many in the fandom assumed the presence of Anderson at Morgans events, and vice versa implied a relationship.
Around the release of the first X-Files movie in 1998 the press started pit Duchovny and Anderson against each other which lead to the rumors that the two stars would hate each other.
In September 2010 the X-Files Universe message board was set up and became one of the most popular X-Files messages boards around whose most active thread with over 30462 hits as of 2017 was GA & DD: Did something happen between them in the past?The term Gorgan started to gain popularity and was both "partly derived by the term "demugorgan" used for monsters in the televison show Stranger Things", as well as a Portmanteau from the first name of the Actress and the last name of Morgan.However, the term has been established for the Anderson/Morgan ship by now, since even the supporters of the ship identify with the term.However, in response to continued perceived ugliness by "snoggers", many Anderson-centric (and thus often Anti-Duchovny, see Duchovny Fans vs.Anderson Fans), blogs started reposting post of the HMS Gilligan blog, with tags suggesting the stupid humour was a welcome relief for the pro-Gorgan side from the increasingly output of some Gillovny content.
After the end of the show's original run in 2002, all fandom activity calmed down until the shooting release of the second feature film I Want To Believe.
