David Lynch makes Laura Harring a Goodwill Ambassador

3 News, New Zealand/October 2, 2008

Director David Lynch has named his Mulholland Drive star Laura Harring a Goodwill Ambassador for his charitable foundation.

The David Lynch Foundation provides funds for transcendental meditation in schools around the world, and for research into the benefits of the practice.

Lynch is convinced meditation can be used to boost creativity, intelligence, academic performance and aid sufferers of learning disorders, anxiety, depression, substance abuse and eating disorders.

And he has brought Harring - who already works tirelessly for food aid charity Stop Hunger Now - onboard to help raise awareness of the foundation.

The actress, whose most famous role was in Lynch's 2001 thriller, tells WENN: "I have been asked to be the Goodwill Ambassador for the David Lynch Foundation...I consider it a privilege and an honor, and I have gratefully accepted."
