“Diane... Entering the town of Twin Peaks.”

Rest In Peace, Clark Middleton (1957-2020)

Actor, director, and producer Clark Middleton passed away on Sunday. He was 63.

“Clark transitioned on October 4th as a result of West Nile Virus, for which there is no known cure,” his wife Elissa wrote in a statement. “Clark was a beautiful soul who spent a lifetime defying limits and advocating for people with disabilities,” she continued.

Clark was diagnosed with arthritis at the age of 4 and had an estimated 14 surgeries over the years. Yet, as the Arthritis Foundation writes, “he never let his disability stop him from living a full and accomplished life.” Donations to the Clark Middleton Memorial Fund will help improve the lives of 54 million Americans living with arthritis, and the lives of those who love them.

Known for roles in Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill Vol. 2 and The Blacklist, Clark of course played the peculiar Charlie in a much-debated plotline which started in Part 12 of the 3rd season of Twin Peaks. He was a huge advocate of the series, calling it “American TV at its best” and frequently stating that playing Charlie opposite Sherilyn Fenn and directed by David Lynch was a gift. You can watch here how Clark surprised Sherilyn Fenn during a Q&A at PhilaMOCA’s Eraserhood Forever in 2018.

As Clark’s Twin Peaks family is responding to the news of his passing, tweets and posts will be shared below.




Earlier today, Clark’s wife took to his Twitter account to post the following inspiring message:

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