A PEEK BEHIND THE SCENES

-

Before production began, the writers met several times in executive producer Glen

Morgan’s backyard to pitch and break stories. Guest star Annet Mahendru (series regular on The Americans) plays Sveta Zatylny, whose last name was inspired by show creator Chris Carter’s Vancouver assistant, Christena Zatylny. In the premiere, the words

“DON’T GIVE UP” are scrawled in the dust on Scully’s back windshield. The phrase was written on the window by Chris Carter himself.

Gillian Anderson wore two different wigs during production (she’s blond in real life): The first one hurt her head and it wasn’t quite the right shade of red.
