Mark Frost was there. He is telling the truth. Twin Peaks was a huge instant hit and some people in the cast let that go to their heads. That is not conjecture on my part. That is info from cast and crew that I have interviewed over the years, mostly off the record. That story of Kyle not wanting the Audrey storyline to develop because if her age is a smokescreen. He was dating Lara and she said no. Kyle and Lara were both to blame. But it's Hollywood. Kyle was the heart of the show and changes were made.
I agree with you Jerry- it DID go to their heads. Especially Kyle, Lara and Fenn. All thought they were going to be the next big thing. And all wanted to distance themselves from Peaks when everyone turned against it. Which is certainly part of why all three refused to take part in FWWM. But in addition to Frost being there, so was Kyle. And while I'm sure his relationship with Boyle was certainly a factor, I don't think he is lying when he says he objected to Cooper romancing and bedding a high-school student, and it was ultimately he who refused to play that out. I know I'm in the minority in thinking that a sexual relationship with Audrey was wrong for Cooper, and am glad it was scrapped- on the other hand, I also believe that dropping their friendship/mentoring completely was one of the biggest mistakes they made.
Very well said.
