"The X-Files" Teliko (TV Episode 1996) Poster

(TV Series)



To appear albino, Willie Amakye's skin underwent several layers of cover-up cream, layers of white powder, and a little pink powder for color. He also wore contacts for the transparent pink eyes. Amakye's hair was dyed orange for post-production special effects to change it back and forth from black and white.
"Teliko" is Greek for "end", as well as the name of a "spirit of the air" in African mythology which is sometimes thought to be an albino.
The tagline for this episode was changed from the usual "The Truth Is Out There" to "Deceive, Inveigle, Obfuscate", a phrase repeated several times throughout the episode.
