SALT LAKE CITY -- The X-Files and FanX are coming together in Salt Lake City this spring, as following the six-episode reboot of the hit show, Gillian Anderson will be in Salt Lake City to meet fans.

Dan Farr, President and founder of Salt Lake Comic Con, made the announcement Friday on FOX 13 News.

Anderson will star in a six-episode reboot of the X-Files set to air on FOX 13 beginning in January. Later, she will be a guest at Salt Lake Comic Con FanXperience, which is scheduled for March 24-26 at the Salt Palace Convention Center.

Farr said the fan base in the Beehive State helps them attract celebrity guests to FanX.

"One of the things that's happened here because the fans are so great here in Utah, our reputation is preceding us in a big way, and there's a lot of people who reach out to us and say 'Hey, so-and-so is interested in coming to your show," Farr said.
