X-philes rejoice! If you have been wanting to meet the stars of The X-Files, then you might want to consider coming to Wizard World Chicago this year. Both Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny will be appearing Saturday and Sunday of the convention.

The X-Files garnered a huge following during its initial nine seasons on television during the 90’s, becoming quite the cultural phenomenon and achieving cult status among lovers of sci-fi and the paranormal. The show also spawned two feature films, video games, and a spin-off series. It has remained so popular that the show returned for two additional seasons in 2016 and 2017. Whether you were a believer like Mulder or a skeptic like Scully, there was something for everyone to enjoy.

Anderson has performed quite a bit on stage, beginning her career there and then returning to London to perform in the West End after the end of The X-Files. She has also done voice work in productions like Princess Mononoke, and had roles in The Last King of Scotland, Hannibal, War & Peace, and American Gods.

Duchovny has featured in productions such as Californication, Aquarius, Zoolander, and Twin Peaks. He has directed episodes of The X-Files, Bones, and Californication.
