Madchen Amick has revealed that the idea of a Twin Peaks reunion has been "floated".

The actress - who played waitress Shelly Johnson in the cult 90s TV series - said there have been discussions about some sort of follow-up although there are no plans so far.

Asked if there might be a reunion to mark the upcoming 25th anniversary, she replied: "People have asked that. I don't know. We've shown up here and there, and I recently did a Twin Peaks festival.

"We call each other from time to time and some have floated the idea of actually having some kind of filmed reunion, but I can't imagine what we'd do."

Madchen, 43, got her big break when director David Lynch chose her for the quirky series, but she admitted she didn't realise it would be such a success.

"I knew it would be something different because it was David Lynch doing television, but I had no idea it would have a lasting effect," she said. "I mean, twenty-something years later and it still means so much to people, and students at college even study it, you know?"

The actress's latest role is in TV show Witches Of East End, about four women who are actually witches.

She explained: "It is about a family of women called the Beauchamps. There are two sets of sisters. There's Joanna, who is played by Julia Ormond, and I play her sister Wendy. Joanna has two daughters; Ingrid and Freya, and they're played by Rachel Boston and Jenna Dewan-Tatum.

"It's about four women exploring our family dynamic, living in modern times, and having to hide the fact that we're witches."

:: Witches of East End is on Tuesdays at 10pm on Lifetime.
