David William Duchovny (born August 7, 1960) is an American actor, writer, and director. He has won Golden Globe awards for his work as FBI Special Agent Fox Mulder on The X-Files and Hank Moody on Californication. Duchovny was born in New York City, New York. He is the son of Margaret "Meg" (née Miller), a school administrator and teacher, and Amram "Ami" Ducovny (1927–2003), a writer and publicist who worked for the American Jewish Committee. His father was Jewish, from a family that immigrated from Poland and Ukraine. His mother is a Lutheran emigrant from Aberdeen, Scotland.

He was a member of the Charter Club, one of the university's eating clubs. In 1982, his poetry received an honorable mention for a college prize from the Academy of American Poets.
