Kyle MacLachlan


The "boy next door, if that boy spent lots of time alone in the basement", is how Rich Cohen described Kyle MacLachlan in a 1994 article for "Rolling Stone" magazine.

Personal Quote:

There's not very many filmmakers like David [David Lynch], particularly in America. He's so brave and courageous. He creates from a place that is unknown. He's not following any blueprints. He's following an unconscious urge and that's hard to do nowadays when people want to know how much you're going to make on this film on the first day of filming. They want to know what they can recoup by day ... See more »

Trivia:

Director Bruce Beresford said about him: "Kyle wears his handsomeness easily; he doesn't carry on. And he's not a boring man. He's ordinary but interesting, which is difficult to find." See more »
