Kumail Nanjiani: So when you watched the pilot [of “The X-Files”], did you like it? Did you feel this was a special show that was going to connect with people?
X-Files Composer Mark Snow: Well what was interesting was at that time, years ago, Gillian and David were like, babies! I forget how old they were but they just looked, you know, like 15 years old or something! And their experience with each other was limited, and I was thinking, “wow, this is a pretty cool subject” and I was wondering "are these kids up to the task?“ and as the show went on… it’s just amazing how they grew into the parts.
