Guest Bio – Walter Olkewicz (Twin Peaks)
Walter Olkewicz has acted in over 50 films and 100 television shows over the past 40 years, including Twin Peaks (as the infamous Jacques Renault), Seinfeld, Grace Under Fire, and The Client.
As a returning cast-member, Walter recently wrapped filming his role alongside series co-creator David Lynch in the the latest mystery-shrouded chapter of the forthcoming Twin Peaks saga, scheduled to air on Showtime in 2017.
In 2015, as Walter faced the possible amputation of his leg, fans pulled together to help him receive proper medical treatment so that he could begin acting again. After enduring 19 surgeries, he is currently wheelchair bound though hoping to further recover, move to an accessible residence, continue his acting career, and eventually open his own theatre.
