Two FBI agents, Fox Mulder the believer and Dana Scully the skeptic, investigate the strange and unexplained while hidden forces work to impede their efforts.
Bruce Harwood (born April 29, 1963) is a Canadian actor best known for his role of John Fitzgerald Byers, ...
John Fitzgerald Byers was born on November 22, 1963, the day John F. Kennedy was assassinated, in Sterling, Virginia, and was named after the fallen president – his parents were originally planning to call him Bertram after his father. Byers idolized his namesake, but always had suspicions about the real cause of his death.
He worked as a public affairs officer for the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in Baltimore until May, 1989. At this time he met Susanne Modeski at a consumer electronics show in Baltimore and fell instantly in love with her. Initially lying about her identity to him, she revealed herself to be a scientist working for the Army Advanced Weapons facility and appealed to him for help in stopping one of her developments (a gas causing fear and paranoia) being used by the military on innocent civilians. Enlisting the help of Melvin Frohike and Richard Langly who were also at the electronics show, they succeeded and, although Modeski was later kidnapped, she had awakened a desire in all three of them to uncover the truth, which subsequently led to the formation and publication of The Lone Gunmen newsletter, providing information on government cover-ups and conspiracy theories. Leaving the FCC and publishing the newsletter led to estrangement from his father, although the two were briefly reconciled in 2001.
He appears to have at least some working knowledge of medicine, genetics and chemistry; he is able to interpret DNA strands, instantly informing Fox Mulder that Dana Scully’s blood had been tampered with in One Breath. All three of the Lone Gunmen died in the X-Files episode Jump the Shark, sacrificing themselves to save thousands from a terrorist created plague by using fire doors to seal themselves in a closed hallway with the man carrying the plague. Walter Skinner pulled some strings and arranges for them to be interred at Arlington National Cemetery as tribute to their brave deeds.
