David Bowie gave producers of the Twin Peaks revival TV series permission to use old footage of him before his death.
The Let’s Dance singer appeared as FBI agent Phillip Jeffries in the 1992 movie Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me, which served as a prequel to the early ’90s TV series Twin Peaks, and actor Harry Goaz revealed last year that Bowie was set to reprise his character in the revival series before he died in January 2016.
Bowie made a posthumous appearance in the series in old footage taken from the film, and producer Sabrina Sutherland has confirmed that the late icon gave them his permission to use it before he passed away.
She told fans in an Ask Me Anything (AMA) session on Reddit.com, “Bowie did give us permission to use his clips in this season.”
In the series, Philip, who has been missing for years, makes an appearance in the form of a large steampunk teapot that billowed out mysterious information to help the evil version of Kyle MacLachlan’s Agent Dale Cooper. The teapot was voiced by Nathan Frizzell.
