She finally consented to appear on film in White Nights (1985) then in Blue Velvet (1986), directed by her one-time husband David Lynch. She then appeared in Wyatt Earp (1993) and The Big Night (1996) and on television in an episode of Friends (1996) and in the mini-series The Odyssey (1996) and Merlin (1998).
