Biography

FBI Special Agent Dale Bartholomew Cooper was the lead character in the popular television series Twin Peaks, created by Mark Frost and David Lynch. The character was played throughout both seasons by Kyle MacLachlan, who also reprised the role for the prequel film Fire Walk With Me.

Special Agent Cooper, or “Coop” as he was known to Sheriff Harry S. Truman, became one of the most popular characters from a dramatic television series. This was mainly thanks to his quirky mannerisms, sense of humour and a number of trademark phrases, along with his love for a good cherry pie and a “damn fine cup of coffee”.

Cooper was born on April 19, 1954, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and attended Germantown Friends School, an elite Quaker high school in the area. After high school, Cooper attended Haverford College.

Cooper is highly introverted, and somewhat mystical, having a particular interest in Tibet, and Native American mythology. Much of his work is based on intuition and even dreams; this is in complete contrast to many fictional detectives who use logic to solve their cases. Like many detectives however, he sometimes bends the rules or goes outside the law.

He enjoys eating and drinking, and is told he “must have the metabolism of a bumblebee”. He also appreciates nature, and falls in love with Twin Peaks, despite the problems there, and gains a great deal of acceptance within a tight knit community. Around the Great Northern Hotel, Agent Cooper is famous for giving a ‘thumbs up’ when satisfied, and nothing satisfies him more than a, above mentioned, good cup of coffee.
