Catherine E. Coulson
Coulson met Lynch in the 1970s and performed various behind the scenes functions during the five year filming of his low budget classic Eraserhead (1978). She also appeared in Lynch's short film The Amputee (1974), in which she played a woman with no legs. During the filming of Eraserhead, Lynch told Coulson that he had an image in his head of her holding a large log. Fifteen years later, he created such a role for her in Twin Peaks.
Coulson was married to Jack Nance, who played the lead in Eraserhead and later played Pete Martell in Twin Peaks, but they divorced in 1976.
Coulson is now primarily a theatre actor and has worked with the Oregon Shakespeare Festival for the last decade.
