After Gillian arrived for her signing session, the first one to come ask for an autograph was an elderly man. What I didn’t realize while taking pictures of her is that after a few moments, she became emotional…
Later on when he came back to see Gillian, I caught with the man and plainly asked him why she cried earlier (am I a good stalk– fan or what? lol). He told me he talked to her about her performance as Lady Dedlock in ‘Bleak House’ and gave her old books of ‘Bleak House’, novels from the 1800’s if I remember correctly! Maybe those were books he or his family had for a very long time, who knows! When I asked him why he did that, he just shrugged and said “Because I felt like it!” He thought maybe the fact that he was here because of ‘Bleak House’ and not ‘The X-Files’ etc. added to Gillian’s tears. But still when he talked to me about it, it seems like he didn’t expect such a reaction from her. He showed me the two pictures he took with her and his autographed picture on which Gillian had written “You moved me to tears.” Aww! He told me he’s not exactly a fan – you know, like we are – but he’s also an actor and everything. Nice man indeed! 🙂 (thanks Rachel Spice)
Note that he’s the only one who had pictures taken with Gillian at the signing AND the only one who got hugs from her! I’m so jealous! lol
Some quotes of the panel :

Question to @GillianA on funny moments in #TXF: Kim Manners yelling “Rock from Mars!” Also being attacked by a cat on a stick.
There are a lot of things I would have done differently, but Scully wouldn’t have been one of them.”
