The hit TV Show "Twin Peaks" was aired from 1990 until 1991, and has since then become an absolute cult classic show amongst fans all around the world. The series depicts the story of the FBI-Agent "Dale Cooper", played by Kyle MacLachlan, who is investigating the mysterious disappearance of high school beauty "Laura Palmer".
"Twin Peaks" wasn't the only successful series Kyle MacLachlan was a part of. He also played the role of "Trey", "Charlotte's" husband, in the hit series "Sex and the City". He also starred in the 2017 continuation of "Twin Peaks" which takes place 20 years after the original plot.
Sheryl Lee played the role of murder victim "Laura Palmer", a seemingly perfect, normal girl. Behind the curtains, she was hiding a raging drug addiction as well as numerous affairs.
Sheryl Lee had a double role on the show "Twin Peaks". Not only did she play the role of "Laura", she also played "Laura's" cousin "Maddy Ferguson". She was never able to get another major role in any other film or TV show after "Twin Peaks". However, she had cameos in numerous shows such as "House".
Ray Wise played the role of "Laura Palmer's" father, "Leland Palmer" in the hit show "Twin Peaks". The family seemed to have had the perfect life before the death of their daughter "Laura". After her death, his world falls apart.
Even after "Twin Peaks", Ray Wise was still able to maintain his acting career, having numerous cameos in series such as "NCIS". He had leading roles in shows like "Savannah" and "Reaper", too, which were both cancelled after two seasons, however. Wise also had a role in the famous soap opera "The Young and the Restless". He's been on the show "Fresh Off The Boat" since 2015, too, and also appeared as "Leland Palmer" again for 2 episodes due to the instalment of "Twin Peaks" in 2017.
"James Hurley", played by James Marshall, comes from a broken family and never really had it easy in life. Even though "Laura Palmer" was publically going out with "Bobby Briggs", "James" had been her secret boyfriend.
Sadly, James Marshall never made it very far in the film business. In 2010, he sued a pharmaceutical company for side-effects of medication he took, as this medication allegedly held him back from making it in Hollywood. Nowadays, he works as a musician.
Sherilyn Fenn portrayed the wealthy "Audrey Horne" in "Twin Peaks". Her father "Ben Horne" never really liked her hardheaded daughter, but was definitely interested in "Laura Palmer". He went so far as to have an affair with "Laura" at some point in the series.
Just like most "Twin Peaks" stars, Sherilyn Fenn had mostly cameos in a variety of different shows such as "CSI" after "Twin Peaks" had ended. She was lastly seen in the film "Unnatural" in 2015 and naturally also appeared as "Audrey Horne" again in the limited series instalment of "Twin Peaks".
"Shelly Johnson", played by Mädchen Amick, is a barkeeper in the "Double R Diner". She is unhappily married and decides to have an affair with "Bobby Briggs" even though she knows the consequences due to her abusive husband "Leo".
Mädchen Amick had cameos in a number of shows and TV films but never had her really big breakthrough. She had leading roles in shows like "Freddi" and "Witches of East End", but both were sadly cancelled after about a year each. She's been on the Netflix-Original series "Riverdale" since 2017 and also appeared on seven episodes of the 2017 return of "Twin Peaks".
