Wendy Robie was in Seattle doing repertory theater when she auditioned for a role in Twin Peaks (1990) (also being filmed in Seattle). Robie auditioned for another role in the series but David Lynch and Mark Frost were determined to cast her as Nadine Hurley, the ferocious and eccentric eye patch-wearing wife of "Big" Ed Hurley, played by Everett McGill. Nadine became one of the oddest of the odd in the series. Attached to the series, McGill and Robie starred in Wes Craven's dark and twisted tale of The People Under the Stairs (1991). They delivered a sinister mother/sister/wife concoction. Ever since, Robie has devoted her talents to the theater.
