you know like her best friend who had just been brutally murdered and who she’d always felt somewhat overshadowed by and didn’t really know how to react now that she was gone
but you know yeah definitely everything you dislike about twin peaks is connected to lfb reportedly disliking sherilyn
Haha, I like that many people’s first response to an opinion they disagree with is so often “wow, did you even [watch/read/see] this [show/book/movie]?!”
Thank you, but I did, in fact, watch the show. And I’m not talking about Donna the character actively trying to be more like Audrey in personality, or arguing that Donna, the character, actively wanted to look more like Audrey.
But I am talking about the fact that Donna was being dressed and made-up more and more like Audrey as the season went on, especially compared to Season One!Donna’s costumes, hair, and make-up. This culminated in the writers inexplicably feeling the need to make her Audrey’s (likely) half-sister (which came out of nowhere at the end of the second season). Whether this change was because of Boyle’s jealousy/dislike of Fenn (or at least of her role on the show) is just speculation, but it seems as likely an explanation as any to me.
It’s well-documented that Boyle and Fenn did not get along on the set, that Boyle was jealous of the prospect of her her then-boyfriend sharing ever-more screentime/a possible love scene with an actress she disliked (and may have envied, since Fenn’s character was so popular and since she was nominated for both a Golden Globe and an Emmy). This is not a fact that’s been commented on only by Fenn herself. [x
This doesn’t have anything to do with me preferring Fenn over Boyle (though from what I’ve read, Fenn’s behavior does seem a good deal more professional).
We never saw enough of Laura physically—aside from a videoclip and a photograph or two (and a pair of sunglasses) to know what was in her closet, but the resemblance between many of Donna and Audrey’s costumes in Season 2 is striking. Notice that nowhere in the confession does it say, in as many words, “Donna was behaving more like Audrey.”
I wish people on this website would stop reacting like children and questioning the validity someone else’s being a fan simply because they disagree with that person’s opinion.
Sorry, but I’m not going to stop having critical opinions simply “for the love of fuck.”
And, for the record, there are a lot of things I disliked about Twin Peaks that had absolutely nothing to do with either Donna or Audrey, nor with their respective actresses on- or off-set. This one thing, however, does happens to have to do with them. But I know—I’m just another crazy Audrey/Sherilyn Fenn fan!
