“I prayed… I prayed that you would come. And you did. “
-Audrey Horne (to Cooper)
Our favourite resident of Twin Peaks definitely had to be the outrageous, salacious, and stylish Audrey Horne. Here is the most unapologetically cool student at Twin Peaks High School.
Be it, she was a bit of a brat, but it is from the very moment she steps out of her driver’s car in her innocent black/white saddle shoes and exchanges them for a pair of bright red pumps- you’re pretty much sold.
David Lynch definitely has a knack for creating juicy female characters like Audrey Horne, but the auteur is even better at casting them. For all the beatnik jazz, plot twists, and sassy dialogue, it truly comes down to the exquisite acting job by Sherilyn Fenn in bringing this remarkably entertaining character to life (Sherilyn was nominated for an Emmy Award for her portrayal of the reforming bad girl).
“It’s not sometimes realistic to think that something magical can happen, but I think I look for the magic.”
“At the very least, my tastes are out of the ordinary.”
If it weren’t for her, there would be one less ‘Style Icon’ for us to drool and dribble over, and that’s not cool. Sherilyn Fenn turns 47 today, so make sure to wish her a good one, or at least do the “Audrey Dance”…
” I love this music. Isn’t it too dreamy? “
Happy Birthday Sherilyn! All the best for 2012!
