The two actors play a tumultuous love duo and Duchovny dishes that the two of them don’t exactly share that intimacy off screen. “Natascha and I have just been able to have a very easy working relationship, and I didn’t know that was going to be the case because I didn’t know Natascha and I didn’t know anything was going to work.”
McElhone adds, “We don’t hang out or have an overly established, entwined friendship so it keeps it really about the work, which is pretty great. We mostly connect as our characters. And I love it like that.”
Yet, when it comes to their characters finding love on the small screen, Duchovny admits it’s all a bit confusing. “Like ‘Where are we exactly?’ Because there’s nothing in the way and yet we’re not together. ‘Why is that?’ We can’t figure it out. She’s not involved with someone else. She’s not getting married to someone else. She’s not pissed at me about something. I’m in love with her, but I’m not pursuing her.”
The Showtime series returns in January 2013.
