David Bowie was an English musician and actor who appeared as FBI Agent Phillip Jeffries in Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me.

Bowie was approached to reprise his role in the 2017 revival, but he declined due to his cancer diagnosis, which was not known to the public until his death. However, he did give permission for his scenes in the film to be re-used as long as his voice was dubbed by a Louisianan actor.[1]

Footage from his scene in the FBI headquarters was re-used in the series, in which his voice was dubbed by Nathan Frizzell, who also provided Jeffries' voice in new scenes featuring the character. Part 14 is dedicated to Bowie's memory.

Bowie is best known for his highly-influential music career that spanned over five decades and is one of the best-selling music artists of all time. His song "I'm Deranged" was featured in David Lynch's 1997 film Lost Highway.

In his acting career, he was known for various roles, such as John Merrick in a Broadway production of The Elephant Man (the basis of which was adapted into an otherwise unrelated film by David Lynch), The Man Who Fell to Earth, Labyrinth, and The Prestige.
