Pamela Gidley, who was best known for playing Teresa Banks in “Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me,” died earlier in the month.
She was 52.
Gidley died at home in Seabrook, N.H., her family announced in her obituary.
A former childhood model — she won Wilhelmina Modeling Agency’s “Most Beautiful Girl in the World” in 1985 — Gidley made her movie debut in 1986 in “Thrashin,’” starring Josh Brolin and Sherilyn Fenn, her longtime friend and “Twin Peaks” star.

She also had roles in “Cherry 2000,” “Angel Street,” “CSI,” “The Little Vampire” and “The Pretender,” but “Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me” was Gidley’s breakout role.
In the prequel movie, Gidley played Teresa Banks, the underage, cocaine-addicted prostitute who was murdered by Leland Palmer.
“Good-bye sweet Pamela! You'll always be in my heart!” tweeted Ray Wise, who played Palmer in the series and movie.

My co-star in “Thrashin” and my girlfriend twice in a lifetime. Amazing and innocent memories of her: a spitfire, and a truly funny person she was. I remember is being in bed (I was 17) and hearing the radio come on saying that the Challenger had just exploded. These milestones in your life: amazing people to grace us with their spirit, their presence. She will have forever affected mine. Thank you for the gift of you, Pam. Rest In Peace beautiful girl. ❤️🙏 #thrashin #dogtownbeginnings #godschildren @robertrusler #pamgidley
