In a year dotted with moments that can only be compared to a bowl full of garmonbozia, 2017 has at least blessed us with a big helping of Laura Dern. Sandwiched between her scene-stealing moments in HBO’s Big Little Lies and her upcoming role in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Dern’s powerful portrayal of the strong-willed Diane Evans in David Lynch’s 18-part revival of Twin Peaks was one of this summer’s highlights.

In a special bonus episode of EW’s A Twin Peaks Podcast: A Podcast About Twin Peaks, the actress joined Entertainment Weekly’s Jeff Jensen and Darren Franich for a candid chat about her performance as Agent Cooper’s foul-mouthed secretary in the Showtime series. Below, Dern discusses her decades-long collaborative relationship with Lynch, how she interprets one of the finale’s most poignant scenes, and if she’ll ever play Diane again. To hear an extended version of the interview, including how Lynch taught Dern “more about comedy than anyone,” what her experience filming Inland Empire was like, and what her interpretation is of “Richard and Linda”.
