The former X-Files star talks to Emine Saner about her new film Sister, whether she believes in extraterrestrials – and if she’ll ever get together with Mulder
In your new film, Sister, you’re known as “the English Lady”. How English do you feel?
I feel very English until I’m in America, and then I feel very American. I was always teased at primary school – I was “the yank”, even though I had British accent. I would have thought I would feel more like an imposter now, but I don’t. I have been in the UK for the past 10 years, but Britain has been such a through-line throughout my life because my parents still had a flat in Haringey, north London, and we used to come back in the summer. During hiatuses from the X-Files I would come back and rent a flat in London.
