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 »
