Bowie starred in the movie "twin Peaks: Through the fire" (1992) – the prequel to the original series (pictured). He played FBI agent Phillip Jeffries.
According to the actor Harry Goasa, Bowie could appear in the revived "twin Peaks", but not in time to appear in their scenes (the musician died in January 2016).
However, Lynch found a way to add Jeffries in the new season. For this he used archival materials.
