David Lynch to Skype into local Twin Peaks tour

David Lynch is set to appear at an upcoming Australian Twin Peaks tour – through the magic of a Skype link.

In a surprise coup for promoter David Roy Williams, the filmmaker, 72, will be answering questions submitted by fans via the live video feed.


The Twin Peaks: Conversation with the Stars tour, announced last month, will feature in-person appearances from some of the cult show's favourite stars including Sheryl Lee (Laura Palmer), Dana Ashbrook (Bobby), Kimmy Robertson (Lucy), Michael Horse (Hawk) and Al Strobel (Philip Gerard), and executive producer Sabrina S. Sutherland.

Lynch was not among the tour's initial lineup announcement, sparking disappointment among the show's followers.

But the filmmaker, who is notoriously elusive in public discussion of his work, has made a habit of making memorable appearances at events via bizarre video links.

At last year's Comic-Con, he teased the launch of Twin Peaks' revival with a rambling message in which he simulated being trampled by a horse.

The filmmaker has also routinely shrugged off analysis of his infamously impenetrable series, recently telling The Guardian that talking about a finished work is "like a crime".

"A film or TV show is like a magic act, and magicians don't tell how they did a thing," he told the publication.

In other words, don't ask about 'Episode Eight'; keep your questions focused on quinoa or Trump or transcendental meditation.

The Twin Peaks: Conversation with the Stars tour begins in Melbourne on August 25, before continuing to Brisbane (August 26), Adelaide (August 29), Sydney (September 1) and Perth (September 2).
