An interview with Bailey Chase
And, speaking of reboots, you also snagged a role in one of the most beloved series of all time; “Twin Peaks.” I’m sure you can’t say much as you are sworn to secrecy, but, is there anything you can tell fans at all about how it was working on such an incredible project?
I can say that working with David Lynch was an utter dream. The job came out of nowhere. Like you said- it is very top secret, I didn’t know what I was going to be doing- there were no scripts. I was just called and they said; “David wants you. Here are the dates. There’s next to no money. Do you want to do it?” And I just couldn’t get yes out of my mouth fast enough. He’s an old school dream. They don’t make them like him anymore. It was a true blessing, and I wish I had more to do with him. I believe the show will start airing in May, and I believe there are eighteen episodes- but he just shot it like a movie. I don’t even know the whole story, David just had it in his head. The only direction he gave us, which I probably will never hear again in my life is; “I want you to talk. Listen. And Take your time.” That was all he told us. Just a very gentle man, and an utter dream to work with.
And, of course, he’s not the only dream to work with. Your cast is filled with talent and beloved people here; Original favorites like Sheryl Lee, Mädchen Amick, Kyle MacLachlan, Lara Flynn Boyle, Ray Wise, Sherilyn Fenn and many more are back, while the cast is also littered with great new people like Laura Dern. Want to talk about your amazing company?
The great thing about working on a project like Twin Peaks was that there was absolutely no egos. Whether you were working with a person, sharing a make-up trailer, or crossing paths and having lunch with them, everyone is just on the same level and it all started with David and it was pervasive throughout the entire cast. It was really just a reunion for those guys, so it was truly very neat to see them reconnect after all these years with spouses and kids. It was completely wonderful to see.
