And what’s her favorite memory of working on Twin Peaks?  Lifetime’s Hayley Campbell (a big Twin Peaks fan herself) sat down for a video interview with the drop-dead gorgeous actress who played Double R Diner waitress Shelly Johnson and simply asked her all of that… and more!

Here’s a clip of Mädchen Amick in her most recent television role, as Aunt Wendy in Witches of East End. I should probably mention she’s naked in this.
