Welcome to the Gish/Reyes Page!

Hey there! My name is Monica Reyes!
Whoa! She looks just like me! No Frickin' Way!
Welcome to my Information Page!

This page is dedicated to providing more information about Annabeth Gish the actress, as well as her character on "The X-Files", Special Federal Agent Monica Reyes. I have studied and researched her other websites to get a feel for what she likes: her favorite music, foods, places to travel, etc. You know, the basics. I will be including many of AG's actual likes and dislikes into my Fan Fiction for Agent Reyes. I thought that would be a nice tribute to AG, herself. I will be adding pictures and information to this page as I find the time. This page will be an ongoing project. Ms. Gish is a wonderful actress and I can hardly wait to see what her next big gig is. Currently, she is starring in Showtime's "Brotherhood". In the mean time, here's the little that I have on her so far. And THANKS, Annabeth, for your ongoing support to the Gay Community. We love you AND Gillery's Little Secret. Woohoo!

All-Time Favorite Annabeth Movies:
"Gillery's Little Secret" (2005). Whoa. This little movie-short was awesome! The producers/Independent Filmmakers are now working hard to try and get this little jewel made into a full-length feature film. But, nice little movie for the woman-loving-woman kind. Interestingly enough, Annabeth's co-star, whom played her ex-girlfriend, Bernadette, guested-starred in "The X-Files" during Season 9 as well. Nice...
"To Live Again" (1998). Gosh, I wish this movie was easier to find. Awesome true story with Bonnie Bedelia (of LIFETIME'S "The Division") as the social worker that helps a 31-year-old woman struggle for a normal life & happiness again after being locked away by her very own mother in a small bedroom for almost 17 years. A true story! AG plays the role of the 31-year-old and gives an incredible performance in my opinion. Awesome acting and what a story of triumph over tragedy. I Highly Recommend this movie!
"True Women" (1997). Great, late 1800's on into the early 1900's, movie beginning around 1835-1840 on up to around 1925, plus or minus a few years. Angelina Jolie (LARA CROFT of "TOMB RAIDER") & Dana Delaney (of "CHINA BEACH" fame) also star in this great little Women's Western. The women can really kick some ass in this little jewel! The name says "True Women" but, hey, I'll tell ya, they were "Tough Women" as well. Don't make the ladies angry... LOL! I Highly Recommend!
"When He's Not A Stranger" (1989). Wow! One of her best performances ever as a young, up-and-coming actress. She's around 18-19 years old in this film. Another true story about a young college freshman that is raped by an acquaintance. A must see movie! It is hard to find, but, well worth the effort to find it. I Highly Recommend!
"Mystic Pizza" (1988), "Hiding Out" (1987), "Coupe DeVille" (1989) and "Shag" (1989). Even though these movies are from the late 1980's they are all still quite popular. AG is so young, and so cute. She's not even 20-yrs-old! And "Kat" of Mystic Pizza can still make my heart go pitterpat. LOL! And, FYI, Mystic Pizza was the movie that put Julia Roberts on the map, while Annabeth took time off from movie-making to get her B.A. from Duke University. She had top-billing in Mystic Pizza (over Julia), but she chose to get an education first before continuing to pursue her acting career any further. You go girl! Her education came first! Just one more reason why I admire her so... sigh... Anyway, I Highly Recommend any of these four movies. But I would say that Mystic and Shag are my favs.  
"Desert Bloom" (1986). Her first movie and big-screen-debut. What can I say? The critics say she 'stole the show' and I would agree. She's only about 13-years-old in this movie, but already showed such talent and promise. And she beat out Winona Ryder for the part! Her mom has been quoted as saying "Annabeth was not nervous at all" at the audition. She just "went in there and did her thing" and won the part of little Rose! You go, girl! Her co-stars: Jon Voight, JoBeth Williams & Ellen Barkin. Not bad for a little 13-year-old just starting out. And I Highly Recommend this movie, too. It's one of her best, IMHO!
"Race To Space" (2000). This movie is one of the cutest movies Annabeth has done in years! I just loved her with the cute little chimp, Tyler. And the out-takes on the DVD are just precious! Race To Space is a warm and heartfelt adventure film, based on the exciting true story of the first American in space - namely Mac, the Astrochimp! This spectacular true-science odyssey takes place during the dramatic 1960's space-race between the United States and the Soviet Union. There are some really great moments with the little chimp and his pals. It's got some comedy scenes, but it also has some great lessons for all of us about family, love and support for one another. Bottom line - this is a GREAT movie for the entire family! I Highly Recommend it! 

"A Death In The Family" (2001). I LOVE this movie! Annabeth does a superb job in this film, although the film centers around her young son, Rufus, she still does an amazing job as the supporting actress. This movie is part of the "American Collection" from "The Masterpiece Theatre" of PBS. The author, James Agee, was born James Rufus Agee on Nov. 27, 1909, in Knoxville, TN. He was a famous poet, film critic, essayist, novelist, screen writer, journalist, and social commentator. The story follows a time in his early childhood when a very tragic and sudden event occurred in his young life. I Highly Recommend this movie, although it is somewhat sad. But it shows us all, that no matter what, life must go on. Again, a GREAT movie for the whole family!

And then there are the movies most everyone that is an AG fan has already heard of by now. "Double Jeopardy" (1999), "Nixon" (1995), "Don't Look Back" (1996), Wyatt Earp" (1994), "Beautiful Girls" (1996), "The Last Supper" (1995), "The Way She Moves" (2001), and the way she "does move" in that movie... Oh my God... The lady can DANCE! Talking about tall, dark and gorgeous!

As I drool... Anyway here is a list of some of what I could find of the music she likes... and I have also added what Reyes likes as well. Not everything listed is an Annabeth favorite.

Special Note:
There has been some confusion on where Reyes actually lives. The address listed in the dossier above is my own preference and the address I use in the MyGirlReyes FanFic. But Reyes actually lives at 67 Bennett Avenue in Washington, DC. You'll just have to read my stories to find out when she moves from 67 Bennett Ave to the Lake Barcroft area. As I tease you...
