Happy 46th birthday, Gillian Anderson, and a great day!

Mnogi gledatelji serije "Dosjei X" nadali su se da će Mulder i Scully postati ljubavni par, ali to se nije dogodilo. Možda je tako i bolje, jer, kako Zagorci kažu: "Ljubav je ljubav, a posel je posel!"

Dee dummApr 3, 2014

She must be a lucky blonde.
