Actor Evan Peters, who plays Jeffrey Dahmer in Netflix’s hugely successful “Dahmer – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story,” talks about the grueling preparation he went through to portray the infamous serial killer.

In a conversation with Murphy and the series’ ensemble cast, released on November 28, Peters detailed the hard work that went into capturing Dahmer’s ominous essence.

Evan Peters said, “She has such a distinct voice, and she’s spoken.”

“I worked with the dialect coaches and then made this 45-minute audio composite that I listened to every day to stay in tone but really get into the mindset for the day and all the scenes we were going to shoot.” I tried to understand what he was thinking and doing. I just tried to stay in it because it was difficult to get in and out.

Murphy pointed to a 1994 Dahmer interview with NBC’s Stone Phillips, the only network television interview Dahmer gave, which Murphy personally suggested as an inspiration.

Peters said he watched “as much as I could,” including courtroom footage of Dahmer. However, it was much more than just the sound that Peters focused on.

“I studied how he moved,” he said. “His back was very straight. He didn’t move his hands while walking.

In fact, Peters literally took things into his own hands. Murphy revealed that Peters actually wore lead weights around his hands to work on Dahmer’s distinctive pose.

“Initially it was important for me to feel how it felt,” Peters said. “When we were shooting, I let it go. In the beginning I wore wardrobe shoes, jeans and glasses. I had a cigarette in my hand all the time, just trying to get all this outdoor nature in, so I was not thinking about it when we were shooting.

When co-star Niecy Nash, who plays Dahmer’s neighbor Glenda Cleveland on the series, questioned Peters how she was able to leave everything behind after filming ended, Peters said she knew it was easier. Won’t: “I’m fortunate enough to be able to take some time off and decompress. Haven’t worked since we shot this. I really tried to shake it all off.

Peters joked that he “watched[2008’s]Step Brothers just changed the psyche,” which made co-star and Step Brothers star Richard Jenkins laugh.

Peters said, “I put so much negativity and darkness into portraying the character,” that I thought, ‘Well, once this is done, all that goes and I have to come back to the light and myself. Will have to start filling back. With comedy and romance and things like that.
