      Coinciding with the return of the Vancouver-shot series The X-Files to the small screen, actor David Duchovny has finally received his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

      With a career spanning three decades, Duchovny has starred on numerous TV series, including The Red Shoe Diaries, The Larry Sanders Show, Californication, and Aquarius (which is shooting its second season).

      Of course, Duchovny is best known for his portrayal of special agent Fox Mulder, alongside Gillian Anderson as agent Dana Scully, on the TV series The X-Files, which launched in 1993, as well as the films X-Files: Fight the Future (1998) and The X-Files: I Want to Believe (2008).  

      He also starred in films such as Working GirlZoolander, Connie and Carla, and Things We Lost in the Fire.

      Yet he has not restricted himself to acting as he has also ventured into singing and songwriting, releasing the album Hell or Highwater in 2015, and writing novels (Holy Cow: A Modern-Day Dairy Tale and the forthcoming Bucky F&%@ing Dent).

      If you're not already aware, he has a Master of Arts in English literature from Yale University and was working on a PhD that he abandoned for acting.

      He received the 2,572nd star on the Hollywood walk. 

      A ceremony was held on January 25, which included speeches by X-Files creator Chris Carter and Garry Shandling. This time around, he didn't blame it on the rain.
