It's been my understanding that the reason that LFB didn't return to the Twin Peaks fold after the original series ended, and David Lynch came up with the idea for Fire Walk With Me, was that she got a big head and thought that she was above the rest of the actors in TP. Remember, at that time she was dating none other than Jack Nicholson and had gotten a part in the Men In Black sequel (which tanked). Needless to say that her acting career went nowhere after these things came to an end. I agree that she was a pretty young woman, but the horrible plastic surgery changed all of that.I'm gonna buy the boxset of The Return anyway. It doesn't seem to drop in price, so it will most likely only become more expensive soon or get out of print. They're not showing it on Netflix or tv here, so it's the only way to see it.
I wonder why Lara Flynn Boyle never returned to Twin Peaks - she was already replaced by another actress in Fire Walk With Me, and she doesn't seem to be in The Return. Unfortunately she also seems to have had poor plastic surgery done (that's the theory at least) and looks quite bad now - which is a shame because she had an incredibly natural beauty at the time of the original Twin Peaks.
