Twin Peaks stars break down the revival's craziest scenes

Posted on

For all things Comic-Con 2017, visit our EW Comic-Con section.

For this year’s Comic-Con International, the cast of Twin Peaks made the trek from the Pacific Northwest to San Diego. Some of the revival’s quirkiest characters stopped by EW’s Comic-Con studio on Friday to talk all things Peaks — including Kyle MacLachlan (Agent Cooper), Naomi Watts (Janey-E Jones), Dana Ashbrook (Bobby Briggs), Kimmy Robertson (Lucy Brennan), Everett McGill (Ed Hurley), James Marshall (James Hurley), Tim Roth (Hutch), Don Murray (Bushnell Mullins), and Matthew Lillard (William Hastings).

The cast caught up with EW’s Darren Franich, where they weighed in on the enthusiastic (and frequently confused) reaction to the revival.

“Fans have embraced it,” MacLachlan says. “It’s everything I think David had hoped in that it’s really his vision. He and Mark wrote the script. David directed every episode. This is David Lynch’s Twin Peaks, and we are getting in as an audience mainlined right into the big vein. And I think it’s extraordinary.”

While the cast is staying tight-lipped about future episodes, they did open up about some of the revival’s most memorable scenes so far — like Michael Cera’s debut as Wally Brando or Lillard’s emotional jailhouse speech about scuba diving. Ashbrook also weighed in on Bobby’s poignant evolution from teenage punk to sheriff’s deputy — and recalled the surprising direction Lynch gave him on his first day working on the revival.

“I was doing my first scene, and I remember I walked in. It was the first I’d done since we’d come back,” Ashbrook recalls. “And David was like, ‘Maybe not so weird. I hate to give you that direction, but not so weird.'”

As for McGill, who’s confirmed to be in the new series as Big Ed Hurley but has yet to appear on screen? “He’s in every scene, but he’s taking a nap,” McGill jokes.
