On youtube, one user has posted all of the Cooper/Audrey scenes linked together, starting from their 'freshly squeezed' meeting up until the kiss in front of Denise. The latter happened in episode 12 of season - so in the final 10 episodes, they had NOT ONE significant scene together. Argubly the two most popular characters on the show, inextricably linked storywise for a season and a half in an arc that was hugely popular with fans - and it gets dropped, totally and utterly, it's like they have no idea of the other's existence for the rest of the show.
Maybe because have already known that they will built others relationship with news characters and they don't need to concentrate about them anymore...it's not necessary a conspiracy or behind the scene drama behind all their decisions.
That strikes me as being, not just a 'didn't think it quite appropriate for his character' reason that Kyle mentions - but a complete and irreconcilable breakdown of off-screen relations between actors and producers. In the documentary Frost's 'reasons that I don't want to go into' and Engels' 'I think that was not going to happen for uh inter-personal...(laughs)...the uh intermurals of the show...
Why not, but again we don't know if they have seen themselves something, or repeat a rumor among the crews (again, Engels have said several mistakes about some Twin Peaks fact), or talk about another story that we don't know...Fenn have said the same reason that Kyle about the end of the Cooper/Audrey romance...why she should have hidden something like that...except of course there are a more complex stories behind that...but for the moment, according Fenn, Kyle and Lynch, the main problem was the young age of Audrey.
I think to call Kyle a "liar" is very harsh, maybe it's just Engels who have just repeated a rumor...maybe Engels lie and repeat a old rumor for to protect himself for the second season so-called problem...or maybe both have a different vision about that, but I trust more Kyle and Fenn simply because both of them have been the first and directly involved in this decision (unlike the other crews members).
that wasn't going to happen' aren't so significant as Fenn's quote 'I was not interested in Kyle, as a man, but Audrey loved him.' Somebody, somewhere along the line, and I'm pointing a finger at you Lara Flynn Boyle, became unable to distinguish between on-screen reletionships and off-screen relationships, whether through professional jealousy or sheer immaturity (she was only 20 at the time), who knows? Why Kyle, a seasoned actor in comparison, didn't sit her down and explain the do's and don'ts of acting to her, I'll never understand - or forgive him for.
There are no real proof that she have played a role in the script change...LFB was very aware the difference on and off screen relationship, you can see her blog with an interview from the 90's about Twin peaks: http://laraflynnboyle.blogspot.com/sear ... results=20
"Yeah, right," she said. "It's very funny because sometimes I'll have, like, this huge kissing scene with James and, like, Kyle'll be sitting in the trailer like this, you know?" she said, impersonating a man in turmoil."
"He doesn't understand that you're just acting?"
"Oh, we do," she said. "I understand that, he understands that, but, still, I don't like somebody else touching my boyfriend and he doesn't like somebody...."
There's another quote, somewhere, of Lynch asking Fenn if she was in love with Kyle - and Fenn responding 'No, but Audrey is in love with Cooper.' That just reinforces my view that on and off-screen relationships became fatally confused, and it caused the death of Audrey as a character.
Just my opinion, of course.
Maybe there are more, maybe LFB have seen something between Kyle and Fenn (she avoid Kyle flirt according Fenn blog), maybe he have a sexual relationship with the two actresses...maybe Lynch have seen something himself, it's for that he have asked if Fenn have fallen in love with Kyle...the problem when we begin to speculate, we can see lot of things about the words from the crew...again I take the official reasons, specially because it's the reason that the main actors (Kyle, Fenn, Lynch) of the show have given, an artistic problem about the difference ages in this romance...the reason is imo very logical so I don't have to suspect another reason, and imo, it's a good decision he have taken, regardless the fact that they has a good chimestry between Audrey and Cooper, it would have been really weird and disastrous for this character to have sexual relationship with an high school girl.
