“You’re the first living adjective I’ve ever met. When people describe a certain look or vibe, they’ll say, “Oh, that’s very Stevie Nicks.” And you know, casting agents will say they’re looking for someone who’s “Stevie Nicks-esque.” Are you aware of your influence?”
“I’m not around to hear all of the details. But I know what you mean. I, myself, can see it, too. I’ll see something that reminds me of this whole little look I put together 20 years ago. I’ll be watching something like House of Style on MTV and somebody will say, “Oh that’s so Stevie Nicks of you.”
David and I have solidified and intensified our friendship and our working relationship since the series ended, so it really is just going back and choosing to work with somebody, and feeling like we are doing something that only the two of us have the experience of. We’re there for each other, and enjoy that in and of itself. It was something I looked forward to with this series, and something I would potentially look forward to doing again. It’s a nice thing to have in one’s life.
We were shoved down each other’s throats for so many years and we didn’t have a choice. Now, we’re together by choice. That makes a difference. When we look back, I think we remember only the good stuff from the old days. We don’t really focus on the difficulties we had. In retrospect, one thinks back and gets to laugh and go, “Oh, my God. Can you believe that happened?” That, compounded with the time that our relationship has grown in between – the times we’ve seen each other and been there for each other and supported each other – it’s the first time that we’re going back really feeling like we’re two friends working together. We’re making the decision to work with a friend rather than a stranger or a coworker that you don’t particularly know very well. /Gillian Anderson/
