Do you easily become emotionally dependent [in relationships]?
I’m a mixture of incredibly independent and dependent upon the high-romantic high. But I’m willing to work on every aspect of a relationship. Most of the confrontation part I welcome. I’m a stickler for the truth. I want the opportunity to deal with it.
Does your idea of happiness include family?
Yes. But let me back up. My deepest idea of happiness has nothing to do with another person. It’s got everything to do with a peace in my own mind. But I would like to have a family again, a partner and another child or two. It’s contingent upon a certain environment of healthiness.

“I think that [Mulder and Scully’s] relationship is defined not by what’s being said, but by what’s being withheld. But it’s absolutely plain that they love each other — in their own way. It’s the best kind of love. It’s unconditional. It’s not based on a physical attraction, but on a shared passion for life and for their quest. These are romantic heroes, romantic heroes in the literary tradition."
“This is obviously a very large prop that is wrapping around my star and in television things happen very fast, shooting is fast, writing is fast, construction is fast, and I remember watching that thing rotate around Gillian’s face, thinking ‘I hope they put all those bolts in there nice and tight.’”
