It’s been more than 25 years since Laura Palmer’s body first washed up on the beach, wrapped in plastic and kicking off the strangest small-town murder mystery television had ever seen. Now, Twin Peaks masterminds David Lynch and Mark Frost are returning to bring their beloved show back to the small screen.
For EW’s new cover story on the upcoming revival, we sat down with some of the series’ returning stars to talk about what it was like to slip back into the world of Twin Peaks — and about some of their favorite moments from the original series.
For Sherilyn Fenn, who played the teenage troublemaker Audrey Horne, that was an early episode where Audrey breaks into an impromptu dance. As Fenn tells it, that now-iconic moment was a last-minute rewrite from Lynch.
“The dancing scene, the day of it, David showed up and said, ‘Alright, everybody get a cappucino, we’re rewriting the scene, and Audrey, you’re gonna dance at the end,'” Fenn recalls. “And I was like, ‘Whaaat?'”

Kyle MacLachlan, who stars as the stalwart FBI Agent Dale Cooper, remembers a similarly bizarre moment as his favorite: a face-to-face confrontation with a llama in an animal hospital.
“That obviously, we weren’t prepared for that,” MacLachlan says. “Stuff like that happened all the time. David calls them happy accidents. He really embraces them.”
