Kyle MacLachlan was born on February 22, 1959, in Yakima, Washington, and attended Eisenhower High School in Yakima. In 1982, he was graduated from the University of Washington with a Bachelors Degree in Fine Arts.
Although this talented actor claims to be a descendant of Johann Sebastian Bach on his mother's side, more easily provable is the fact MacLachlan developed his love of drama when reading the Hardy Boys adventures as a child, acting
out all the parts as he went along. After theatre experience, Kyle was discovered for films by director David Lynch, who cast the actor as the ingenuous
male leads in Dune (1984) and Blue Velvet (1986), with whom he has remained friends.
In 1990, Kyle won a Golden Globe award for his portrayal of FBI agent Dale Cooper in the Lynch-created TV series Twin Peaks." Reportedly, he turned down the Charlie Sheen role in Oliver Stone's Platoon. He made his directorial debut with an episode of the made-for-cable anthology Tales from the Crypt.
He and Desiree Gruber were married on April 20, 2002, at Plymouth Congregational Church in Miami, Florida.
His most current role is Orson Hodge, in ABC's Desperate Housewives.… Expand
