"I was lucky enough to be able to work in Season 3... I worked with Howard Gordon before on ['The X-Files']. They were having difficulty with this particular character and he gave me a call...

It is different when you work on a show where it already has an established base. Everybody is confident and putting in their work time. So it creates a relaxed, yet pumped up, environment because there is no pressure in that sense... The cast and crew are all family and have been there for years and they’re just committed to the cause..."
