XFiles Universe is proud to announce a winner for the “2012 and Beyond Video Contest.”
Anelissetno1 created the winning video: William [One Last Hope] The End and the Beginning. The video is a spectacularly crafted video that is a perfect prediction for X-Files 3. The video shows a chilling vision of the future, with colonization taking place and William as an older child remembering his parents Mulder and Scully.
Fans of The X-Files immediately will remember Scully saying that to Mulder in War of the Copraphages. Those three words are a fitting quote to apply to Scully herself.
Agent Dana Scully is a doctor, speaks several languages, and is skilled in a form of martial arts dubbed “Scully-Fu” by fans. She seldom wears revealing clothes, is not afraid to sport a ponytail no matter how it makes her look, and is guilty of wearing Harry Potter glasses. But (say it with me…), “Smart IS sexy.”
When The X-Files began airing, Gillian Anderson was dubbed the sex symbol for the thinking man and Scully quickly became a role model for a generation of women. Scully was intelligent, lived by her inner sense of right and wrong, demonstrated steadfast loyalty to Mulder, was brave to the extreme, and was shown as an independent yet vulnerable character. This character is unmatched even all these years later, though many have tried. Temperance Brennon of Bones seems a faint replica of Scully, as is Olivia Dunham of Fringe. As Sophie Brown of GeekMom.com writes, ”What we need are more women who can stand on their own two feet, women who have studied long, worked hard, and never got by simply on their looks. What we need, is the return of Dana Scully.”
We will watch the Director’s Voiceover of “All Things,” and then Milagro. If time allows, Beyond the Sea is the third episode for the evening. Each of these episodes beautifully demonstrate Gillian Anderson’s acting skill and shows the character development of Dana Scully through the years on X-Files.
Members of XFilesUniverse.com voted in the forums for their favorite Scully episodes over a ten day period.
February 23 is Dana Scully’s Birthday! XFiles Universe will have a viewing party to celebrate. Join us in the chatroom at 8pm Eastern to honor the birthday girl.

Mark you calendar, get the DVR set, because Gillian Anderson is back on TV beginning on Sunday. At long last, Gillian’s movie Any Human Heart comes to the United States.
Any Human Heart airs on PBS on February 13, 20, and 27 at 9pm Eastern time, though we recommend you check your local listings to verify times.
The movie stars Jim Broadbent, Matthew Macfadyen, and Sam Claflin as Logan Mountstuart in different periods of his life. It also stars X-Files’ Gillian Anderson, Kim Cattrall, and Hayley Atwell. William Boyd wrote the best selling book on which this movie is based.
Gillian portrays Wallis Simpson in the movie, the socialite who married Prince Edward, the King who abdicated his throne for her.
X-Files’ Gillian Anderson, well-known for her work with different charities, is lending her voice to a new cause. A new video from the BBC and Survival International hopes to convince the world that tribes in Brazil need to be protected in order to preserve their way of living. Deforestation of the Amazon is the main threat for these groups. Gillian narrates the video.
Howard Gordon will forever be linked with The X-Files and 24, but now you can add the word “author” to his credits. This marks a new venture for Gordon, whose book, Gideon’s War, released this January. Our friends over at XFilesLexicon.com have a fascinating interview with Howard Gordon that you should check out. In it, you can see comparions Gordon makes between Gideon and Fox Mulder and Jack Bauer, and provides some insight into his writing process.
