Throughout the series, numerous characters are introduced. Some come in on a bus and some by dreamscape.
In an interview, series director David Lynch said actor Kyle MacLachlan was perfect for the role of Dale Cooper because he had the look of someone the audience could enter a strange world with.
On BOB, Lynch said the character was conceived after a mistake occurred where set decorator Frank Silva was captured in a mirror shot.
Prior to this incident, one of the set directors told Silva not to get locked in the bedroom being filmed in and the thought of him trapped in the room with the mirror shot inspired Lynch to write this character of evil into the script.
Before production of the series, Lynch and Mark Frost, who co-wrote the series, pitched the town as a small, quiet place with trees that blow in the wind while doing hand gestures that sold the studio on it.
Twin Peaks, with a pilot seen by 36.4 million viewers followed by 29 episodes and a feature length film called Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me, had a nation watching every week during its airing from 1990 through 1991.
Twin Peaks was key inspiration for other mystery and suspense shows, such as The X-Files and Lost.
