I love working with the dedicated people at this theater. They are pursuing this for truth and beauty, not just as a springboard to the next job. Before I decided to be an actor, I wanted to be a jockey, but then I realized I wanted to be more than a Texan cowboy. - Von Dohlen, interviewed by Travis Michael Holder, June 25th, 2004
Suggested that his Twin Peaks
(1990) character Harold Smith, instead of hanging himself could gas the orchids and himself, and die with all the orchids lying over him. As he came up with this idea quite late, the scene couldn't have been changed, but as a compromise, a scene where Von Dohlen gases the orchids was added.
