Differentiates himself from other Hollywood actors with the quiet intensity, fierce intellect, and acerbic wit he consistently displays when performing on both small and big screen, David William Duchovny sure has carved a unique characteristic of his own to make him very special in every audience's heart. A fine figure of Jewish and Scottish descent, he was born the second son of intellectual couple of writer also publicist Amram Ducovny and a teacher named Margaret on August 7, 1960 in New York City. At age 11, his parents sadly decided to have a divorce, leaving the boy alongside his two siblings taken under the care of his mother who chose to remain in Big Apple while his father left for Boston before stayed in Paris. Though life afterwards was not easy for him to undergo, he wonderfully made his way to earn a scholarship to the elite Manhattan's Collegiate School for boys where he later graduated as a class valedictorian which prompted the likes of Harvard, Yale, Browns, and Princeton to offer the bright student a seat eagerly.
