When IBG Inc. announced that Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny (with special guest, Chris Carter) were having a “reunion” in order to raise money for charity, I was besides myself with excitement. The X-Files was my childhood sci-fi/geek love and I still consider it my most favorite television series of all time. Unfortunately, I was too young to venture off to the conventions during the mid-90s and thus, missed out on all the fandom fun. There was no question that I would attend this event and the fact that all the money went to charity just made it better.
IBG Inc. is a non-profit campaign that raises money for various charities through the arts. This particular conversation series held on July 30, 2011, with the X-Files stars benefited SA-YESÂ and raised over $30,000+!
We were allowed to take non-flash photos during the panel but the room was so ridiculously dimly lighted that there was no way to take proper photos. I did end up just taking notes while Anderson, Duchovny and Carter were on stage. Here are some of the highlights from their conversations.
