See the Evolution of Mulder and Scully From The X-Files

Jan 22, 2016

It's been 23 years since David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson first played Fox Mulder and Dana Scully, detectives who investigate the paranormal, the bizarre and the downright scary on The X-Files. Fans of the show will reunite with the characters this winter when the show returns for a limited series on Fox. And while some things have been slow to change since 1993—like the fact that the Emmy-winning Anderson was offered half of Duchovny's pay for the revival—the duo's style has certainly undergone a transformation. See their various looks throughout the show's history.
