X-Files filming at ‘UFO crash site’ in Ashcroft

X-Files filming at ‘UFO crash site’ in Ashcroft


Gareth Smart, a part-time acting coach in Cache Creek, provided a big treat — and potential spoiler — to X-Files fans around the world on Wednesday when he shared photos of an alien crash site on Facebook.

While a Vancouver crew for the upcoming X-Files miniseries has been busy shooting street scenes involving actors David Duchovny (Fox Mulder) and Gillian Anderson (Dana Scully), another crew has apparently been shooting night scenes in Ashcroft, an hour west of Kamloops.

The set features a flying saucer embedded in the ground.

Ashcroft, with its semi-desert terrain, may be standing in for Roswell, New Mexico, a supposed UFO crash site that is a big part of the X-Files mythology.
