“The X Files” actor David Duchovny has been honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Duchovny thanked his “The X-Files” creator Chris Carter as he received his star on January 25, reported Female First.
The 55-year-old actor rose to prominence as FBI Special Agent Fox Mulder during the sci-fi TV series’ initial run from 1993 to 2002.
Carter was also in attendance.
Speaking to fans who had gathered to watch him receive the accolade, the actor said, “I wouldn’t have a career without Chris and his show ‘The X Files’. That really made everything happen for me as an actor.”
Duchovny admitted he had always dreamt of getting some sort of plaque with his name on to recognise his talents, and he is delighted to be honoured with a star in Hollywood.
“It’s tangible and something that feels like it’ll last a while. That’s something special and something to reflect upon I think. I grew up on 11th Street and Second Avenue in New York and the Second Avenue Deli was [a block away].
“They had their own Walk of Fame in front of the deli with stars of David on the street. I thought maybe I’d get one of those one day, but this is even better.”
