Kyle MacLachlan Talks 'Twin Peaks', The Possibility of Even More & Dougie [TCA 2018]

Kyle MacLachlan Talks 'Twin Peaks', The Possibility of Even More & Dougie [TCA 2018]
From Slashfilm - January 13, 2018

Kyle MacLachlan was on a Television Critics Association panel for the upcoming final season of Portlandia with Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein. After the panel, /Film was able to ask him about coming back to Twin Peaks: The Return, including his initial reaction to the character of Dougie. Plus, MacLachlan offered his own thoughts on the possibility of Twin Peaks season 4.

I read the whole script in one fell swoop and the Dougie character was really intriguing, MacLachlan said. To read it was one thing but when we finally put it on its feet and got the physicality of that character in place, which happened as we were close to starting, it became really clear. I really trusted David because you just hope that what youre doing is resonating the way its supposed to and not something thats going to put people off, which maybe it did in the beginning. I think gradually people began to embrace Dougie as the show went on each episode. I think people came to realize that if Cooper comes back, then Dougie disappears and people began to really love Dougie.

When the real Cooper finally emerged, MacLachlan felt a tad rusty but quickly got his groove back.

It was great, he said. I was excited to get him back. It wasnt until the 16th hour so I was a little concerned that I [could] remember what I was doing, but it all came back in a great way.
