When David Duchovny caught up with an old friend, he didn’t imagine their visit would go viral.
“I was having lunch with [former X-Files costar Gillian Anderson], and as I was leaving she was like, ‘Let’s take a photo,'” he recalls in this week’s issue of PEOPLE. “I was told there was a big reaction to it! I never get that stuff, but it’s really cool that people are interested after all these years.”
Of course, in the decades since his hit show first premiered, the multi-talented Duchovny, 60, has been plenty busy in the acting, writing and music worlds.
“There is still a lot of stuff I want to do,” says the author, whose fifth literary venture, an Audible Original audio story, The Reservoir, premieres Thursday. (A singer-songwriter, he will also release his third album this year, Gestureland, and is working on a pilot for his novel, Truly Like Lightning.)
