'The Flash' Star Candice Patton Reveals Why She Loves 'The X-Files' Fox Mulder And Dana Scully
"The Flash" star Candice Patton has revealed her all-time favorite TV couple.
In line of the Valentine's Day celebration, TVLine star asked the 27-year-old actress who her most favorite pair on the small screen is. And it turned out that she, too, is a fan of "The X-Files" Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson).
"I just think they have a really great partnership and dynamic," said Patton, who plays Iris West on the CW superhero series. I love David Duchovny, and I love Gillian Anderson, I think they have a really great chemistry -- and I'm one of those people who wishes they would just kiss already!"
While Duchovny and Anderson will always be known for their onscreen chemistry, it wasn't instantly known.
"We didn't know they would have chemistry," series creator Chris Carter revealed (via E! News) at the TCA winter press tour last January. "I had an inkling of that chemistry when we did a table reading. But it wasn't until the day they both appeared in Mulder's office, they both lit up, and it was the same ever since. It's one of those things you can't manufacture, and we got really lucky."
Duchovny likened onscreen chemistry to "an arranged marriage." "Some of those work, and some don't. It's your job as an actor to make that happen," he explained.
"There is something extra, and I don't know what that is," Anderson said of her chemistry with Duchovny. "It seems like it's separate from us, almost like a third..."
