The audience followed the life of a small provincial American town, inhabited by friendly, naive and slightly eccentric people. Wise had to play a doting father at the first place, though in fact, he had to kill his on-screen daughter.

In 2007, Time included Twin Peaks in the list of "The best TV show of all time."

Struggles

Ray Wise claimed that he had hoped for not being a killer in TV series. He didn't want it to happen to him, because it is abnormal, gruesome, and depressing to kill an own child. When the actor started starring in Twin Peaks, he had an own daughter at that time, so killing an on-screen kid, Laura, was anathema to him. So, filming all of these scenes bothered Raymond a lot.

Filming some moments isn't as easy as it may seem to the audience. Nine out of ten, actors pass through hard minutes of anger, despair, and sadness.
