In fact the truth behind Anderson and Duchovny’s off screen relationship is perhaps as cool as the Vancouver woods in which they shoot the edgy spook opera. They are friends, but not really close friends. They rarely see each other outside of work, which probably helps fuel their inexplicable but undeniable screen chemistry.
“I think we’ve found that it (spending time apart) is necessary, because we spend so much time working together that if we’re to be civil with each other whatsoever we need space once in a while,” Anderson says.
“It’s the same with any kind of relationship. We have very different private lives. I have a family and a daughter with whom I want to spend time, and he has his circle of friends.”
