Twin Peaks: Al Strobel is dead. He died at the age of 83
Al Strobel’s departure on Friday was announced by producer and longtime David Lynch collaborator Sabrina Sutherland. Via Facebook, she wrote:
“I’m sorry to have to announce that Al Strobel passed away last night. I loved him dearly,” we read.
Al Strobel lost his left arm in a car accident when he was 17. Appeared in “Twin Peaks Town” as Gerard – a man who cut off his own hand to stop an evil being from possessing him. He also appeared in the film sequels “Twin Peaks. Fire Follow Me”, “Twin Peaks: The Missing Pieces” and the continuation of the 2017 series “Twin Peaks”.
When Strobel wasn’t starring in Mark Frost and David Lynch’s series, he appeared in films including the 1990s “Megaville,” opposite Billy Zane, and “Child of Darkness, Child of Light.”
Shortly after Sutherland shared the sad news on Facebook, the information began to circulate online and the Twin Peaks crew began posting messages of sympathy.
“Oh no…Dear Alu…” series co-creator Mark Frost wrote, paying tribute to his dear friend on Twitter.
“Those lucky enough to meet him over the years know what a warm and wonderful gentleman he was. RIP, my friend.”
Dana Ashbrook, who portrays Bobby Briggs, also tweeted, writing:
“Sad, sad news… I love Al. He was the sweetest man, a wonderful storyteller. Watching him roll a cigarette with one hand was pure magic.”
