Initially, he had plans to major in Business before finally resolving to act in films and television series. In 1984, he made his debut starring role in the movie Dune.

His debut movie was met with poor ratings and reviews from critics. However, MacLachlan became successful with his next starring role in ABC television series Twin Peaks (1990–91) and in its prequel, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me. It was this role that earned him his Golden Globe award. He has had other successful starring roles and guest appearances in many other movies and television series.

Aside from acting, Kyle is partners with vintner Eric Dunham for the production of one of Washington's highest rated wine labels, 'Pursued by Bear', which is a label of Dunham Cellars.

Love life and marriage

After three unsuccessful long-term love relationships, MacLachlan finally met the love of his life, the woman who would become his wife, Desiree Gruber, in 1999. He met Gruber at his chiropractor's office where they only exchanged greetings.

Fortunately, he met her again at a party, and they got talking and ended up spending a nice night together. He had to move to New York - where she was based - when he was filming Sex and the City. On April 20, 2002, they got married, and had a son, Callum, in 2008.

The couple have residences in Los Angeles and New York.

Becoming parents

Before the birth of their son, Desiree went through several miscarriages and suffered from thrombophilia (the propensity to develop a blood clot). While seeing specialists, and with the support of Kyle, their journey to having a baby became a thing of joy in the end.

Though Gruber delivered their son with a C-section, they were deeply joyous to become parents. MacLachlan took some time off acting, and with Desiree, the owner of her public relation agency, they had time to take care of their baby together.
