Coulson played the Log Lady in the cult TV series and show creator David Lynch shared the sad news in a statement on Monday (28Sep15).

It reads: "Today I lost one of my dearest friends, Catherine Coulson. Catherine was solid gold. She was always there for her friends - she was filled with love for all people - for her family - for her work. She was a tireless worker. She had a great sense of humor - she loved to laugh and make people laugh. She was a spiritual person - a longtime TM meditator. She was the Log Lady."

In addition to her recurring role on both seasons of Twin Peaks, Coulson appeared in the follow-up film Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me, and was slated to reprise her role in the upcoming reboot on America's Showtime network.

She also worked with Lynch in his 1974 short film The Amputee and his 1977 film Eraserhead.

Coulson also made guest appearances on TV series including Psych and Portlandia.

The cause of Coulson's death has yet to be revealed.
