Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

This lithe, pale, dark-haired ingenue may be best known as the placid, abused waitress Shelly Johnson in David Lynch's hallucinatory TV series "Twin Peaks" (ABC, 1990-92). Amick reprised the part in the feature prequel "Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me" (1992). Her other feature credits include the likably lowbrow thriller, "Stephen King's Sleepwalkers" (1992), in which she starred as a virgin who falls for a handsome high school student who's secretly a soul-eating mutant, and the lackluster comedy "Don't Tell Her It's Me" (1990). Amick received a somewhat more respectable star turn in the erotic thriller "Dream Lover" (1994), as an ambitious femme fatale with dark designs on her lover James Spader. She received praise for her delightfully spirited portrayal of bad girl Carrie Fairchild in the CBS nighttime soap "Central Park West/CPW" (1995-96) and for her turn as the shape-shifting Ariel, assistant to Mr. Rourke, in the updated "Fantasy Island" (ABC, 1998).
