MacLachlan made his earthly debut in Yakima, Washington on February 27, 1959. He is the oldest of three kids born to a stockbroker, Kent, and a public school employee, Catherine. As a kid, MacLachlan excelled at piano lessons and was actively involved in drama productions by the time his parents separated. In his senior year at Eisenhower High School, MacLachlan delivered a star performance as Henry Higgins in My Fair Lady. Ultimately, he went on to earn cum laude accolades as well as a 1982 BFA in fine arts at the University of Washington in Seattle.

MacLachlan’s breakout film role was Lynch‘s 1984 sci-fi flick: Dune. Although it was not well received by critics, the big budget movie offered the aspiring actor a glimpse of future success, and he moved to Los Angeles. Two years later, a star turn as Jeffrey Beaumont in another Lynch project, Blue Velvet, solidified MacLachlan’s standing in Hollywood, and he’s been busy ever since.

Kyle MacLachlan’s film career

MacLachlan’s work with Lynch made him a familiar face, but there’s more to his career than Blue Velvet and Twin Peaks. The 6-foot-tall actor may wish he could disassociate his name with the 1995 box office bomb, Showgirls, but he has every reason to be proud of his portrayal of rock musician Ray Manzarek in Oliver Stone’s The Doors. Released in 1991, The Doors related a slightly romanticized version of a seminal Los Angeles rock band and their doomed lead singer, Jim Morrison. Another role for which MacLachlan earned well-deserved accolades was Cliff Vandercave in the 1994 live-action film, The Flintstones.

Kyle MacLachlan’s love life

Before moving from Washington state to L.A., MacLachlan was involved with a girl named Heidi with whom he’d picnic in cemeteries, says StyleCaster magazine. The actor’s first Hollywood relationship; however, began when he met actress Laura Dern in 1985. Their love affair was in full swing when MacLachlan fell for another actress, Lara Flynn Boyle, on the set of Twin Peaks.

At the time, MacLachlan was nowhere near ready to settle down, as was proven when he juggled a relationship with Boyle as he romanced yet another Twin Peaks castmate, American Beauty starlet Heather Graham. After the offbeat series and both those relationships ended, MacLachlan became involved with supermodel Linda Evangelista. The pair nearly married but called off the engagement in 1998.

Is Kyle MacLachlan married?

In 1999, a chance meeting in the waiting room of a chiropractor’s office changed everything for MacLachlan. It was there that he and aspiring executive producer Desiree Gruber first said hello. A few months later, the pair met again at a party, and this time things clicked, explains Fabiosa magazine. When MacLachlan moved to New York to work on Sex and the City, the pair began dating in earnest and tied the knot in her hometown of Miami on April 20, 2002.

Gruber and MacLachlan’s quest to have kids took several years to come to fruition. In the meantime, Gruber helped to create several successful television series, including Project Runway and Stylista. In 2008, fertility treatments paid off when the pair welcomed 8 lb. 6 oz. Callum Lyon MacLachlan to the world.

Today, the MacLachlan family splits their time between homes in New York and Washington state where the actor grows grapes and makes wine under the Pursued By Bear label.
