 Interviewer: Mads Mikkelsen is a pretty incredible actor—

 Gillian Anderson: He is an incredible actor.

 Interviewer: What’s it like working with him?

 Gillian Anderson: Intense. Most of our scenes are sitting across from each other in my house. We stare at each other a lot. Recently somebody showed me a little clip that somebody had put together of us just staring, clips of us staring at each other back and forth for like a minute and a half. [x]

30 Rock + TV Tropes
 ’Painting the Medium’:
Modifying the presentation of a story in order to convey information about the story. This is typically done for one of three reasons:
- To imply something about a character or scene without actually stating it, or to give a feeling that helps remind the reader that things aren’t quite the normal and mundane that they’re used to.
- To drag the reader from the narrative and blatantly point out that it is messing with our preconceptions about how the medium should behave. If this is done well, it creates a sense of confused surreality.
- To gain basic laughs from its audience.
By using this trope, a writer turns a transparent tool — meant to show the work behind it — into a part of the work.
