Morning Brew – Gillian Anderson returning for more “X-Files”

Good morning!

Still reeling from last night’s Pretty Little Liars? Marlene King offers up some answers.

Taryn Manning says she’s learned “a lot” from her LGBT castmates on Orange is the New Black:

“I have seen a shift in morale, in a sense, with gay rights finally coming together and people who truly love each other can now find that union and be married. It is really quite profound. It is time.”

Margarita Without a Straw star Kalki Koechlin said it was a little awkward to film her love scenes with female co-star Sayani Gupta.

“…the actual moment of physical contact was uncomfortable. For the first two takes I was ‘acting’. Then Shonali made us sit and talk and slowly I began to feel like [my character] Laila.”

The Guardian writes about the BFI Flare Festival’s panel, “Where are the lesbians?” which is about the lack of queer women in film and TV. (Definitely film!) And you can also watch some of the shorts from the festival online.

Gillian Anderson is reprising her famous role in six all-new episodes of The X-Files. Can you believe it!? Oh yeah, David Duchovny, too.

A new film called Point Dume  follows three women who decide to live off the grid together. Out director Jordan Loeppky-Kolesnik says he’s a little worried people won’t like that a man directed the film, which has a sapphic sex scenes:

“Fags and lesbians have so much in common, but also have so much distance from each other. As a queer guy who’s very in touch with my femininity, there’s something interesting about representing lesbian sexuality. But it’s also fraught with the danger of falling into the male gaze, even if it’s being done by a male gay.”

Fair enough, but I still want to see this.
