Yesterday, we lost “a wonderful woman.” “A sister.” “The coolest in the room.” An icon.

Here is an overview of thoughts and reactions shared by those who worked with or admired Peggy Lipton on Twin Peaks.

UPDATE: David Lynch has commented publicly on Peggy Lipton’s death after a Mulholland Drive screening in Brooklyn, New York.

Mädchen Amick (Shelly Johnson/Briggs, on-screen employee of Norma Jennings at the RR Diner)

I lost a sister today. She was a true angel on earth. Always the coolest in the room. You couldn’t fit anymore love into that gorgeous soul of hers and she shared her heart generously with everyone around her. She was such a proud mother. Loved her girls more than anything in the world. I will always love you Peggy. I hope to dance with you again in the stars one day.


Dana Ashbrook (Bobby Briggs)

Peggy was one of the first people I met when I started on TP. I remember being completely in love and loved by both Peggy and Mädchen on the first days on the pilot. She would give me advice – stuff that helps me with life and career, still, to this day. Such a cool person. The coolest. I got to meet her daughters – Rashida and Kidada when they were little kids…so sweet. They grew into beautiful people. She loved them and was super proud of both of them. We got to talk about them when we did the return- she adored them. The scenes at the RR diner will always feel like Twin Peaks to me, and Norma, so gorgeous , was always there… so….Norma, I’ll see you in my dreams…rest in peace my friend. Hope there are less tears in dreams…??
