The ‘Twin Peaks’ Log Lady Is the Series’ Wisest Character, and Could Save Them All

22 May 2017 10:17 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers from the first two parts of the “Twin Peaks” revival series.]

On Sunday’s premiere of “Twin Peaks,” fans reunited with beloved character Margaret Lanterman, better known as the Log Lady. The reunion was bittersweet, though, since actress Catherine Coulson had died from cancer shortly after shooting her scenes for the revival series in September 2015.

In the two scenes in which the Log Lady appears, the evidence of Coulson’s battle with the disease is evident: She’s weaker, speaks haltingly and breathes with the aid of a nasal cannula. Despite this obvious infirmity, though, it was heartening to see that the Log Lady is still on her game and possibly sharper than ever. In these first two episodes in which the women are treated viciously on screen, it was inspiring to see that one woman isn’t beaten down or cowed, and in fact provides guidance and offers sustenance.

Interview: Catherine E. Coulson

19 May 2017 3:47 AM, PDT | Pure Movies | See recent Pure Movies news »

Before she sadly passed in 2015, Dr. Garth Twa spoke to Twin Peaks' iconic Log Lady.

Catherine E. Coulson had been a seminal part of the David Lynch cosmos, from backcombing Henry’s hair in Eraserhead to starring in his early short ‘The Amputee’ to providing Log Lady introductions to the syndicated episodes of Twin Peaks.  It was a great privilege to have been able to speak with her before, very sadly, she passed away in September of 2015.

Garth Twa:  You’ve know David Lynch for a long time…
