David Lynch is the sur­real deal, say 'Twin Peaks' cast

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

The cast of David Lynch's "Twin Peaks" re­vival show gushed Fri­day about how much they loved working with the enig­matic film­maker-and re­vealed some se­crets about his unique di­rect­ing process. Kyle MacLach­lan, Naomi Watts, Tim Roth, Matthew Lil­lard and sev­eral oth­ers were joined for a panel on the sur­real Show­time se­ries by mod­er­a­tor Da­mon Lin­de­lof, the showrun­ner for ABC's "Lost," at San Diego Comic-Con. All agreed that of all the ques­tions they re­ceive about the show from "Twin Peaks" fans and the me­dia, they were most fre­quently asked what it was like to work with Lynch.

"He has this in­cred­i­ble sense of joy about him... He has this peace about him that is un­like any­thing I've ever ex­pe­ri­enced, and he has a vi­sion of what he wants," Lil­lard said. "He's a fan­tas­tic hu­man be­ing." Lynch's fa­mously sur­real noir soap opera about mur­der in small-town Amer­ica re­turned in May af­ter 26 years away, for a new 18-episode run in per­haps the most ea­gerly an­tic­i­pated television event of the year. Watts, who begged to be on the re­vival af­ter star­ring in Lynch's 2001 neo-noir mys­tery "Mul­hol­land Drive," con­fessed to still get­ting a lit­tle star-struck around him.

"You just kind of want to please him in ev­ery­thing you do," she said, be­fore be­com­ing slightly flushed and clar­i­fy­ing: "On set!" "He cre­ates an in­cred­i­bly imag­i­na­tive world. It's so orig­i­nal and you just want to join that world at what­ever cost," she added. "His be­lief in his process and his vi­sion and his point of view is so pro­found and fo­cused, and he in­spires me that way be­cause he fol­lows this dream in his mind," added MacLach­lan. "I find that in­spi­ra­tional in my life, to go af­ter the thing I be­lieve in the strong­est."
