A story is only as good as it’s question. And few questions ever really capture our collective imaginations to the extent that they become part of our shared consensus reality, but who killed Laura Palmer was one such question.
Laura Palmer was the cinematic vehicle David Lynch used to introduce Sheryl Lee to the world.
But Twin Peaks was not the first time she had collaborated with David Lynch. In 1990 she starred in Wild at Heart alongside future Twin Peaks alumni Grace Zabriskie.
Over the course of several decades Sheryl Lee has distinguished herself in a gobsmacking array of television and movie roles.
Today she continues to grab the imaginations of audiences all over this blue marble.

When I was in high school I would actually sign up for junk mail. It didn’t matter what it was: newspapers, magazines, anything. I’d get at least three free newspapers every day that I would never read. I’d just collect them and store them in boxes. I loved getting junk mail. It made me feel…important.
And then a couple of years later I discovered aromatherapy and things got better for me.
