If you’ve been thinking about attending the 2008 Twin Peaks Festival, a bit of news that crossed our desk might help make that decision easier. Piper Laurie will be joining the festivities this year for the first time!
Piper is beloved by Twin Peaks fans for her marvelously devious portrayal of Catherine Martell, archnemesis of Josie Packard and double-crosser of Ben Horne. Of course she’s also remembered for her outlandish performance in Carrie as poor Sissy Spacek’s tormenting and fanatical mother.
Returning to the Fest for her eighth visit is Kimmy Robertson, aka Lucy Moran, the quirky receptionist in the Twin Peaks Sheriff’s Office. Previously confirmed guests include James Marshall (James Hurley) and Charlotte Stewart (Betty Briggs).
The cutoff for advance tickets has passed, but you can still purchase them in person at the Festival sign-in. Just beware they do not accept credit cards or personal checks for in-person purchases. The event runs July 25-27, 2008, and although the bus tour has sold out, the Fest packets contain a map of the filming sites for fans to perform their own self-guided tours.
