    RIP Catherine E. Coulson. The Log Lady was a one-of-a-kind, classic character.

  2. I hope she filmed her scenes for the revival series before she passed. She was a pivotal part of the shows mythology.

    Aww… I didn’t know about her Eraserhead connection, but will certainly miss her in the Twin Peaks revival.
