She’s driving along Mulholland in this convertible car… But it didn’t end up happening.” 95 Her car accident scene in Wild at Heart (1990) came from director David Lynch‘s impression of Fenn as a porcelain doll, and from the idea of seeing a porcelain doll breaking. He kept telling her about that, and that’s how the scene was born. Lynch said of the scene, “I just pictured her being able to do this. She’s like a broken china doll”. Lynch got the same inspiration for the car accident scene in Mulholland Dr. (2001). His direction to actress Laura Harring was to act like a broken porcelain doll. 96 Although actress Elizabeth Taylor fought the unauthorized biography Liz: The Elizabeth Taylor Story (1995), she found that Fenn aptly portrayed her. 97 Made the cover of Playboy magazine in December 1990. 98 Daughter of keyboard player Arlene Quatro who played in the Suzi Quatro band, that Sherilyn’s father managed. 99 Her favorite Elizabeth Taylor movies are A Place in the Sun (1951), Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
