American pop singer Sky Ferreira has discussed her upcoming role in the new season of iconic TV show Twin Peaks in a brand new interview. The David Lynch directed show, which first premiered in 1991, is set to make its television return later this month after a 26 year absence.
Twin Peaks in one of the most talked about TV shows to ever grace our screens, and anticipation amongst fans is growing rapidly, as we move closer to the release of the upcoming third season. The show is set to feature many of the actors from the original series (such as Kyle MacLachlan and Sheryl Lee), as well as a host of new additions.
Season 3 will also feature an assortment of musicians in various roles including Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder and Nine Inch Nails singer Trent Reznor. One of the more recent musicians to receive the call is pop star Sky Ferreira.
Speaking to Vanity Fair, Ferreira said of her involvement: “The whole time, I was thinking, I’m in it. The thing is, I already live [Twin Peaks] in my head—but I wasn’t imagining it this time,” “I have literally watched everything of Lynch’s at least 20 times, so I know I’m going to have to watch all of [the revival] at least twice,” she added. “I never watch myself in anything I do—but this is probably the only time I’ll make an exception.”
Expanding on her characters storyline, Ferreira explained: . “I’m not, like, Julee Cruise as myself and I’m kind of glad I’m not. I got to be something completely outside of myself.”
She said of Twin Peaks creator David Lynch: “David Lynch’s work is so dark,’ and I don’t see anything dark about it,” “It’s hard to describe. Life is violent and weird and dark, and we can’t really explain any of it. That’s true of all of his work. But for me, it was always weirdly hopeful.”
