She is the reason that we are first introduced to the town of Twin Peaks, but died before that lonely foghorn first blew. Homecoming Queen and sex worker, murder victim and drug dealer, charity volunteer and thief, Laura is a character that exists beyond the pale boundaries of “good” and “bad” that television–especially the soap operas that Twin Peaks was inspired by–tends to sort its characters into.
Using her Secret Diary as a guide we peel back a few of the layers, look under one or two fingernails, and ultimately become blinded by the brilliance of Laura’s mind and soul. Taken from us too soon, we hope to see you again… the 25 years is almost up after all.
