San Diego Comic-Con is always full of surprises. This year, the big surprise was getting the opportunity to speak to several actors from Twin Peaks. (You can find my thoughts on each episode of The Return here).
This interview session was a little intense with the large number of actors to speak to, but that’s part of what made it great experience. As you stand on the line, you were never quite sure who you were going to speak to next. It kept you on your toes and the adrenaline pumping. What made it perfect was how fantastic each actor was to talk to. They were having just as much fun as the press was. Check them out below.
Sabrina Sutherland – Executive Producer
John Pirruccello – Dep. Chad Broxford
Eric Edelstein – Det. “Smiley” Fusco
Nicole LaLiberte – Darya
Adele René – Lt. Cynthia Knox
George Griffith – Ray Monroe
Chrysta Bell – FBI Agent Tammy Preston
Amy Shiels – Candie
Kimmy Robertson – Lucy Brennan
Harry Goaz – Dep. Andy Brennan
Robert Broski & Christian Calloway – Woodsmen
Full disclosure, if you didn’t know already, I love Twin Peaks. I’m kind of obsessed with it. I did learn a bit talking to all these amazing people, and have started re-watching the last season again. Finding out how the actors filmed their role and how they were given direction and information is fascinating.
Some people feel the show is just too weird. If you watch carefully or have read Mark Frost’s two books (The Secret History of Twin Peaks and Twin Peaks: The Final Dossier), it does make sense. Hopefully someday we can get more.
