In 1990, she appeared alongside Nicolas Cage and Laura Dern as The Dreamself of the Heartbroken Woman in the director’s stage production ‘Industrial Symphony No. 1’ and also appeared as a singer in ‘Twin Peaks’, as well as film spin-off ‘Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me’ and revival show ‘Twin Peaks: The Return’ in 2017.

She previously said of their working relationship, “It’s like I’m his little sister. You don’t like your older brother telling you what to do.

“David is stupid. He can have these tantrums at times. And have you ever seen his mood? Anyone can look funny when they get mad. But I love him.’

“I don’t take opiates, but the pain is so bad that I cry and snap at people.

‘Thank you very much, but everything. That’s my last bow…’
