David Lynch Sure Knows How To Pick ‘Em! About That Unlisted, Old Lady In The Twin Peaks Teaser

She's NOT on the official Twin Peaks cast list.
This post was published a while ago. Please keep its age in mind and if you find any errors, feel free to comment.

Eyes popped and jaws dropped when Showtime dropped the fresh blood revealing Twin Peaks teaser yesterday. 

New cast members like Madeline Zima and Ben Rosenfield weren’t difficult to recognize, but one creepy apparition that took a while to identify was the old lady with the scrunched up face. Probably because she is NOT part of the official Twin Peaks cast list published last year. So who knows who else we’re going to see?

And no, Damon Lindelof. It is not Laura Dern with heavy makeup.


Now, Kathleen Deming is her name, and it is night. Don’t go any further with it. But if you do… you’ll discover videos like this.

David Lynch sure knows how to pick ’em!

Kathleen "Kate" DemingKathleen —no known relationship to Twin Peaks DoP, Peter Deming— is a professional actor born in Maine who recorded the above clip as her audition for Seekae’s 2016 “Turbine Blue” video. What her role in the new Twin Peaks will be is yet unknown, but feel free to speculate in the comments.

UPDATE: Kathleen plays a character name Buella in Part 1.

Founder and curator of Welcome to Twin Peaks since 2011. Bobsessed since March 1991.

What's your response to this?


  1. Kathleen says:

    Here I thought perhaps David Duchovny hadn’t aged very well…

  2. Shawn McLoughlin says:

    So there ARE people in the show that aren’t in the cast list.

    Fantastic news. More wonderful surprises in store!

    • Nick says:

      Unknowns, sure. I still don’t buy that there are big surprises like Ontkean or Bowie in store.

  3. Rob B. says:

    OK, I’m thinking she’s either a Lodge denizen or the new madam at One Eyed Jack’s..

  4. joethetimelord says:

    Definitely not Lindelof’s first mistake.

  5. Flimmervielfalt says:

    I think, she is the daughter of Carl Rodd and Ingrid Brucato.

    We will discover, that Kathleen Deming plays the stepmother of Laura Palmers secret son, played by Ben Rosenfield, who was raised in the trailerpark of Dear Meadows.
    Happy Family!

  6. Eric from Sweden says:

    As soon as I first saw her in that trailer, I thought to myself: “That’s Twin Peaks! She’s got Twin Peaks written all over her.”

    • joethetimelord says:

      She and the lady with the small Mexican chihuahua both gave me that feeling. Hell, the entire new cast in that trailer didn’t feel out of place.

    • DemingTv says:

      This is Beaula. Hug Eric…

  7. Eric from Sweden says:

    And btw, she reminds me a bit of some of the trolls/goblins from The Dark Crystal.

  8. Jack Kornfield says:

    Sorry, but I am not buying this. All of a sudden this woman has a filmography with only two films in the past two years? This is an elaborate hoax! It’s Laura Dern!

  9. Katharina says:

    This is the girl. This is BOB.

  10. Luc says:

    If Laura Dern was a witch, that would be her aspect. 100% Lynchian face. Is he who find them or they who found him?

  11. The Man Who Knew Too Much says:

    The mystery woman. A haggard woman who was once a thriving young girl who sent a man a letter. The monkey whispered her name in the black space where the red curtains sway, but this was just a passing mention.

    Fun fact: Cary Grant never said “Judy, Judy, Judy” in any of his films.

  12. Nick says:

    She will be ‘The Old Woman’ Mrs Chalfont (etc.) who accompanies the ‘grandson’ for this series.

  13. Cinesimon says:


  14. Sebastian says:

    It’s definetly laura dern. compare the eyes

    • Shalan says:

      lol I meet her ..and that’s her .. very sweet lady .. she surly helped me with my career ! Love you ? Kiss me Kate !

  15. Amy says:

    She’s real and an incredible woman. Such a sweet spirit and danced the night away at the premiere !

  16. DemingTv says:

    By the way. It’s Beulah. Thanks everyone.
