Gidley played underage prostitute Banks, who was murdered by Leland Palmer in Twin Peaks. Back in an interview in 2016, she herself explained how she was approached by David Lynch: “He offered me that role, and so there was a conflict of interest”, she said.
“David wanted me so much for the character that he guaranteed the other film that he would pay all flights and all insurance.
“I was literally going from the Bahamas to Seattle, from Seattle to the Bahamas, almost every other 10 days…That to me was like, ‘Wow, you want me that bad?’ Holy Christ. I can’t imagine anyone wanted me that bad.”
