Vince's eye movement
19 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Both posters above referred to the actor's visible eye oscillations as interesting, although no mention in the show was made of it. This is a visual impairment called nystagmus. Without doubt the actor suffers from it, it simply can't be faked. The camera techniques were clearly designed to allow you to easily view this, although Scully and Mulder do not seem to directly take notice of it. I mention this also because this impairment seriously limits vision and the kinds of jobs those who have it can get. Hats off to Pruitt Taylor Vince for doing so well. Check out the link to him on IMDb where many other people comment on his nystagmus and offer their own perspectives.
