Twin Peaks Spoilers Below!

Twin Peaks was a cult TV series created by David Lynch and Mark Frost. The show ran from 1990-1991 and was followed by a 1992 feature film prequel, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me. The story followed an investigation headed by FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper into the murder of homecoming queen Laura Palmer.

BOB was the show’s primary antagonist. The behind-the-scenes story of how Frank Silva was cast as Killer BOB is actually really interesting:

The impetus for the series Twin Peaks was the mystery of who killed Laura Palmer. When production began on the pilot, “Northwest Passage”, series creators David Lynch and Mark Frost had decided that the murderer would be revealed as Leland Palmer, Laura’s father. During the filming of a scene in the pilot taking place in Laura’s room, Frank Silva, a set dresser, accidentally trapped himself in the room by inadvertently moving a dresser in front of the door. When told of the incident, Lynch had an image of Silva stuck in the room and thought it could fit into the series. After filming him crouched at the foot of Laura’s bed, looking through the bars of the footboard, as if he were “trapped” behind them, Lynch filmed the scene a second time, without Silva. After reviewing the footage, Lynch liked Silva’s presence so much that he decided to make him part of the series.

Later that day, a scene was being filmed in which Laura’s mother experiences a terrifying vision; at the time, the script did not indicate what Mrs Palmer had seen. Lynch was pleased with how the scene turned out, but a crew member informed him that it would have to be re-shot, because a mirror in the scene had inadvertently picked up someone’s reflection. When Lynch asked who it was, the crew member replied that it had been Silva. Lynch considered this a “happy accident”, and decided that Silva’s unnamed character would be revealed as Laura’s true killer.
