The “R” entry in the #atozchallenge is a bitter sweet one, because we arrive at the point in my B to Z of Twin Peaks when we pay tribute to possibly my favourite character, played by Miguel Ferrer, who sadly died in January, soon after filming his reprised role for season three.
Albert Rosenfield is a top flight FBI forensics expert, called in to assist Agent Cooper in the investigation of Laura’s murder. He is, as Cooper rightly says “lacking in the social niceties”, an understatement if ever there was one, but his abrasive manner and blunt honesty make for some excellent comic relief.
I love Albert, he makes me smile whenever he comes on the screen and the scene where he listens to Big Ed explaining how Nadine lost her eye gets funnier every time I see it.
But the best way to illustrate Miguel’s brilliant portrayal of a man who you really shouldn’t like but can’t help loving, is to let him introduce himself, so here is Albert arriving in Twin Peaks for the first time and leaving quite an impression.
