Personal Quote:

(on playing Laura Palmer in Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me (1992)) - I felt really great about the decision because I never felt complete with Laura. I never got to be Laura alive, just in flashbacks, so it allowed me to come full circle with the character. Laura always had a tremendous amount of life, because everybody talked about her, yet I didn't get to do those things and be her. See more »

Trivia:

Director David Lynch was so impressed by Lee in Twin Peaks (1990)' pilot episode (especially the picnic scene where Laura dances and laughs with Donna) that he wrote the role of Maddy Ferguson for her, in order to bring her back in the series. See more »
