DAVID DUCHOVNY was nominated for an Emmy Award for Best Actor in a Drama Series for the 1996-97 season, David Duchovny once seemed an unlikely candidate to become an actor. A native New Yorker, Duchovny attended Yale University, where he received a graduate degree in English literature to prepare for a career as a teacher. While at Yale, he began commuting to New York to study acting and was soon appearing in off-Broadway plays. In 1987, in the midst of his doctoral studies, he left Yale to pursue acting full time.

Numerous roles soon followed. Before THE X-FILES, Duchovny was probably best known for his memorable portrayal of Dennis/Denise, the transvestite detective in the television series "Twin Peaks," and for his performance opposite Mimi Rogers in the acclaimed feature film "The Rapture." His most recent feature film was "Playing God," due out this fall, and he also has just completed filming the first feature film version of "The X-Files," which will be released in 1998.

Duchovny's other feature film credits include leading roles in "Chaplin," "Beethoven," "Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead," "Kalifornia" and the critically acclaimed "Julia Has Two Lovers." Duchovny was also the host of cable's "The Red Shoe Diaries." He has made two guest appearances on "The Larry Sanders Show," and on "Space: Above and Beyond" and did voiceover appearances on "The Simpsons" and "Duckman."

Duchovny is married to actress Tea Leoni.
