Are you insane, Gillian Anderson?!
The X-Files are terrifying, and now Gillian’s kids Felix and Oscar know it. The Anderson spawn are 7 and 9 respectively, which is wayyyy to young to watch the creeptastic perfection that is the X-Files, but that’s just one loner weirdo’s opinion, I GUESS.
Anderson, who obvi stars in FoxÃ¢â¬â¢s six-episode X-Files revival, stopped by The Talk on Wednesday to talk about being a bad parent:
Ã¢â¬ÅIt backfired so badly. I literally chose the least scary of all of them, which also happens to be my favorite episode, which is called Ã¢â¬ËBad Blood,Ã¢â¬â¢ Ã¢â¬Â Anderson explains.
Unfortunately the Ã¢â¬Åleast scaryÃ¢â¬Â episode Ã¢â¬â which features Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Anderson) investigating possible vampires Ã¢â¬â still managed to terrify AndersonÃ¢â¬â¢s sons.
Ã¢â¬ÅThey had nightmares for weeks!Ã¢â¬Â Anderson says. Ã¢â¬ÅTheyÃ¢â¬â¢ve seen Harry Potter, theyÃ¢â¬â¢ve seen Voldemort, theyÃ¢â¬â¢ve seen Orcs, theyÃ¢â¬â¢ve seen everything [and this scared them]. It literally is the bane of my existence.Ã¢â¬Â
The X-Files returns to Fox on Jan. 24ÃÂ at 10 p.m ET, and I HIGHLY DOUBT Gillian’s kids will be tuning in.
Are you excited for the X-Files revival?
