    SPOILER: In her 2011 autobiography, Piper Laurie says that to maintain the secret of whether her character, Catherine Martell, survived the mill fire long into the second season, the producers hatched a plan for her to be on set only in her "Japanese businessman" costume and prosthetic makeup; the rest of the cast and crew were told only that she was a (male) Japanese movie actor named Fumio Yamaguchi who had worked mostly with the acclaimed director Akira Kurosawa, and that Yamaguchi didn't speak much English. Laurie's name was removed from the credits, and she was restricted from telling the press or even her own family that she had not been fired from the show. Several of her costars were fooled at first, including Jack Nance (who played her husband) and Peggy Lipton (who suspected it was David Lynch's then-girlfriend Isabella Rossellini in disguise instead).
