Biography: Sheryl Lee is an actress, born April 22, 1967 in Augsburg, Bavaria, Germany, though she grew up in Boulder, Colorado, U.S.A.
Lee is best remembered by legions of David Lynch fans for her appearance as the dead Laura Palmer in the cult television series Twin Peaks. When the series was picked up, Lee was also given the part of Laura's cousin Madeline Ferguson later in the series (a role which was reportedly written because Lynch, impressed with her abilities, wanted to give her a fuller role on the show). She was finally able to do this in the film Fire Walk With Me which was made after the series ended.
Other prominent roles have included playing the part of Astrid Kirchherr in the movie Backbeat, a bio-pic of the early career of The Beatles, and in Kingpin (television series).
Lee is married to Jesse Diamond, a musician and son of singer and songwriter Neil Diamond. The couple have a son, Elijah.
