X-Files actress who played show's most notorious role to return

Posted on

Next year’s 11th season return of The X-Files will feature an actress who once played the show’s most notorious role.

Karin Konoval (The Planet of the Apes trilogy) previously appeared on the series in 1996 playing a mutant-breeding amputee kept under a bed in “Home.” The episode was so notoriously disturbing that, for years, Fox declined to re-air it. “Home” went on to be considered one of the show’s finest hours.

We’re told Konoval will play multiple roles in a rather scary entry in the new season.

Teases showrunner Chris Carter: “While Karen Konoval won’t be reprising her role as the mother-under-the-bed in the fan-favorite episode ‘Home,’ she will be returning in a tour-de-force performance in an early episode. Or, more accurately — performances.”

The X-Files is returning for 10 episodes sometime during midseason on Fox. Stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson are back on board along with longtime co-stars Mitch Pileggi, William B. Davis and Annabeth Gish. From season 10, Robbie Amell and Lauren Ambrose are coming back. And new to the show for season 11, Barabra Hershey and Brian Huskey are coming onboard.
