My husband and I recently re-watched The X Files, including the first movie installment from 1998. But we put off watching the second movie for over a year because we figured: what's the point? Well, we finally got around to watching it last night, and I noticed something really cool.
I thought I was crazy when I first saw it. Didn't even say anything to my husband because I was sure I was wrong. But watch this video, and tell me you don't see what I see:
The X Files: I Want to Believe on YouTube
Sorry I couldn't embed the video in this post. I tried multiple times and it just wasn't working. Don't know why.
I also couldn't find a clip of just the scene I needed, so this is the entire film. But scroll in about nine minutes. Watch closely at 9:34 and tell me what you see. Here's the link again, in its original form in case you're one of those people who is suspicious of clicking on random links you find on people's web pages, just because I really, really want you to see it.
So? Did you see it? Did the female FBI agent who passes Mulder and Scully in the hallway look familiar to you? Did you wonder why they were looking at her like they recognized her?
Could it maybe be because she's Samantha Mulder?
Okay, not Samantha herself. Just the actress who played her in the early season flashbacks. I did some Googling, and this is what I found:
And while we're on the subject of odd things involving X Files actors, isn't it a little ironic that Mulder's sister was played by an actress whose last name was Morley? Only diehard fans will understand that, but I'm scratching my head over here.
Okay, that's all. Just thought I'd share. It's the perfect time of year for finding Easter Eggs, after all.
