Media outlets confirmed the news that TWIN Peaks actress Pamela Gidley passed away “peacefully” at her home earlier this month. The news was disseminated by her family.
Her obituary confirmed that the star passed away “peacefully” in her home on 16 April. She is survived by her two brothers, Glenn and Daniel, and four nieces and nephews, Alexis, Eric, Keegan and Adam.
Pamela studied at the Stella Adler Studio of Acting in New York, and was also known for her roles in Angel Street and Skin.
Speaking about the role that made her name in Twin Peaks, Pamela previously said: “[David Lynch] offered me that role, and…there was a conflict of interest. David wanted me so much for the character that he guaranteed the other film that he would pay all flights and all insurance [should anything happen to her while travelling]. I was literally going from the Bahamas to Seattle, from Seattle to the Bahamas, almost every other 10 days. That to me was like, ‘Wow, you want me that bad?’ […] I can’t imagine anyone wanted me that bad.”
