Words matter. These are the best Sheryl Lee Quotes, and they’re great for sharing with your friends.
I don’t think death is a negative thing at all. I think it can be very positive.
It doesn’t matter whether it’s television or films or the theater. I just have to believe in what I’m doing. If I don’t believe in it, I won’t do it.
Every actress has a line she’ll draw, where she’ll say, ‘This I will do and this I won’t.’ For me, everything has to be important to the story and the director has to be able to tell me why.
There’s something about death. It’s like trying to understand our own mortality and immortality. That’s why society is so into things like vampires, because they don’t die. Well, why don’t they die?
I’m grateful for anything that brings me back to Colorado.
I highly recommend tantric sex workshops.
I’ve always had a fascination with vampires. It’s not that I’m exactly fascinated with the dark side. It’s the human struggle with it. How we deal with those two aspects of who we are. We all have those elements.
For some weird reason, people have a fascination with Laura Palmer.
My biggest fear in life is fear.
I loved ‘Blue Velvet.’
I went into dancing but damaged my knees so decided to become an actress instead.
Animals weren’t put on this earth to entertain us.
I’m starting to understand why certain people in the entertainment business reach a point where they say, ‘I’m not going to do any more interviews.’ I definitely understand that.
I love being directed, and I feel so grateful to be able to get to work with some of the directors I’ve worked with.
I just turned 30 so I got really introspective as you do, questioning my life. And when I stopped and sort of looked back at the past decade, I realized I had done more work than I thought I had done.
The more we deny that we have a dark side, the more power it has over us.
I love directors who aren’t going back to the stereotypes, who are helping write and create roles for women that are not in the typical Hollywood box. I’m very, very interested in films that are going outside of stereotypical roles for women.
If something scares me, then I have to do it.
Because Laura Palmer was dead… there was always this strange sense that people were seeing a ghost when they would see me.
I had no idea it was going to be like this. People come up to me all the time, but it’s never, ‘Oh, you’re Sheryl Lee.’ It’s, ‘Oh my gosh, you’re Laura Palmer.’
I would love to play a nun. I used to want to be one when I was a kid.
Everybody has secrets.
When I was a kid, we played outside until we couldn’t see and had to go in. I rode my bicycle and played tag football, kick the can, and hide-and-go-seek.
David Lynch saw my picture in a casting agent’s office in Seattle. I got a call to see him, and the rest is history.
It’s almost as if we each have a vampire inside us. Controlling that beast, that dark side, is what fascinates me.
I was living in Seattle. I was 21 years old, just going to do theater. And I got a call that David Lynch was in town and wanted to meet with me.
I still get terrified if I have to talk in front of a group of people. By having a character to play, it makes it safer.
People are doing so many incredible, inspiring, interesting things all over this country, and I think that’s where the hope is – seeing how innovative and creative people can be.
I just found out last week – my sister told me – that my father had some Beatles records. So I must have heard them quite a bit, but it never registered, really. Now I listen to them with new ears.
I did a few independent films, but there is no money in them.
People don’t set out being bad. They have deep pain inside.
Twin Peaks’ without David Lynch is like a girl without a secret.
Someday I’d love to come back and start a theater company in Boulder. That would be a dream come true.
I was the kind of kid, I’d sit in the back row of the class with my head practically under the desk. I was incredibly afraid of people and very shy.
Apparently I’m the most naked that anyone’s been on TNT. My poor mother. I’m ready to run away.
It’s still difficult for me to watch my work.
I have a thing about angels. I believe in them. I feel like I have a guardian angel. I think everybody has one.
And in the middle of one of those scenes, I suddenly felt my heart just open: it was overwhelming, to the point where I got teary-eyed. Never would I have thought anything like that could happen in a love scene.
I have to be very aware of how I manage my health. I still have relapses if I push myself too hard and my immune system can’t handle it.
It’s awkward: Here you are with most of your clothes off in bed with this person who you’ve really just met. You’re strangers to each other’s bodies and you’re coming together for the first time in front of all these people.
If something scares me, then I have to do it. My biggest fear in life is fear.
I had a little house, and I sold that and moved into a condo, then sold the condo… I kept downsizing and downsizing.
I remembered their songs but I had never owned a Beatles album.
I was just this kid from Colorado studying theater, and suddenly I was on a hit TV show.
I felt guilty about what happened on ‘Twin Peaks.’ All of a sudden, to have that kind of payoff for doing so little seemed very strange.
