Twin Peaks creator David Lynch has released a statement on the passing of Miguel Ferrer, who will be seen in the Showtime revival of the cult series. Ferrer died Thursday of cancer at 61.

“On behalf of myself and our Twin Peaks family, we love Miguel Ferrer,” Lynch wrote. “We loved working with him. We are very sad to see him go. Our best thoughts for his good family.”

Lynch also released a photo of Ferrer on set (see below). He was among the first actors signed for the new series, on which he reprised his role as FBI Agent Albert Rosenfield from the groundbreaking original drama, which aired from 1990-91 on ABC. It premieres May 21 on Showtime.
