Bryan singer tweeted a picture of the set where he’s filming your scenes at Quicksilver, and it’s set up to film at 3600 frames per second. Holy cow. What it like shooting in that?
Evan Peters: Bright. It was incredibly bright. A lot of the crew and Bryan, himself, got to wear sunglasses. And the actors had to keep their eyes open for a long, long time, with that bright light just blaring at you. It’s like the sun. It’s brighter than the sun. It’s right there in your eyes. But the end result is so worth it. You just power through it.

Does it hurt?

It does kind of hurt. I don’t know how safe that is? Keeping your eyes open for more than 20 seconds in that light. But yeah it does hurt. It’s really difficult to keep your eyes open.

I only saw a part of the set in Singer’s photo — how big is the actual set? What does the footage look like when it’s all done?
It’s quite a big room. It’s super, super, super, super slomo. You can see raindrops frozen in the air. Stuff like that. It’s amazing how that camera works.

How does that change the way you deliver your lines or throw a punch?
You don’t do anything differently other than try to keep your eyes open in the bright light. And try to make it look cool, I guess.

Will your character actually have silver hair?
Yes. Yeah. Yeah, it’s cool.

Do you think everybody else just seems slow and boring to Quicksilver?
Yes! I read one of the comics where he says that it’s like waiting at an ATM, when the people in front of you don’t know how to use it. That’s how his whole life is, everybody is so slow to him. And he has the ability to go so fast, he’s just waiting for everybody to catch up. It’s pretty cool, that character trait.

What was it like working with Ian McKellen as your father, Magneto?
No, I worked with Michael Fassbender. And he’s awesome. He’s amazing to work with. I worked with him and Hugh [Jackman] and James [McAvoy]. And… I won’t say any more. I worked with all of them. They are awesome. Seriously, the nicest people in the world, couldn’t have been more welcoming.

What was your favorite piece of 70s clothing that you got to wear?
The jeans. And the jacket — I had a pretty sweet jacket.




We’ve seen American Horror Story’s Evan Peters play a school shooter, greaser, a hippie — and in our exclusive interview with the actor he revealed his next role, a frat brother! Will the tumblr fans still love him when he’s chugging beers with the witches of New Orleans? Most likely. Check out what Peters had to say about the new season.

We’ve seen you play the monster, and we’ve seen you play the “aw shucks” guy who was taken advantage of, so who are you playing this year?

Evan Peters: His name is Kyle and he’s a Frat Boy and that’s about all I can tell you [laughs]… He’s a go-getter. He’s got goals and he’s got dreams. He’s in this frat house because he comes from the 9th Ward, and that’s on the other side of the tracks, and he’s trying to get out of there. So he joined this frat, he’s going to Tulane and he’s doing well. Really well.

Last year the series was set in the past and now American Horror Story is set in the modern day. Which is more fun?

I think the 60s was really fun. It was really fun. It was just cool to listen to different music and have different hair. It’s such a different time. It’s not as crass and there was something about it that I really liked. But then again you get in the present and everything is a little bit easier because you are a part of it, and you don’t have to stretch as much. So that’s cool too.

Every year you guys kill it with the costumes and the sets. Is there anything in particular you’re really excited for the audience to see?

Yeah there’s a bunch. I think everyone is going to love the costumes and sets this year. It’s all really spooky and beautiful in a way. And the house, the house that all the witches live in is just gorgeous. It’s massive and beautiful.

American Horror Story has a reputation for creating a cast of power-house women, and even so this year with Kathy Bates and Angela Bassett, how has the predominately female cast influenced your character? Are you one of the only guys on set?

No I’m not. There are several guys on set. I don’t particularly work with a lot of guys except in the beginning. There’s a bit of a misconception that I’m the only guy on set, I’m really not. There are several more male actors — there’s Denis O’Hare, he’s in [this season] a lot. I think because it’s witches [this year] that there are so many more women this year. There’s predominantly more women, yes.

Are they open to having any male witches in the cast?

No there are no Warlocks here. At least not yet anyway.

How much did filming in New Orleans influence this season and on set?

Oh it’s awesome. It’s so hot there and so spooky. It’s just old and beautiful. It’s such a great place to work on a scary show. It’s one of the most haunted cities in the world. And everybody is telling ghost stories. There’s ghost stories every night. It gets you in the mode and mood of scary movies and a scary TV show. It’s been awesome to work there. I really enjoyed it.

Can talk a little bit about the challenges and positive things that go with working with the same cast but totally different plot lines and characters. You’re a professional actor and of course you could do a different film with different people, but what’s it like having the same cast of players over and over again, but totally different plot lines and characters?

It is different. It’s amazing, you get to see a different side of each person. When you’re acting with them you see them change into somebody else and you have to react off of that person, and not who they were last season. It’s a completely different story, so I think it’s easy, because the writing is so good, to slip into it for everybody. And sort of look at the other person and see them not as Jessica Lange, it’s somebody in the script. And you’re reacting. It’s been interesting. It’s been challenging, for me, to try and play a completely different character but it hasn’t been too difficult working with other actors who are playing different characters. I’m not confused. I’m not calling Jessica my mom or anything. It’s a totally different setting, and the sets are so gorgeous, it really plays right into your imagination. You can slip right in.

You’ve played a crop of misunderstood characters. You played one character who was misunderstood by his family and lost his way. Kit was misunderstood to the point where people called him a liar and locked him up. Is Kyle misunderstood?

Yeah, I think Kyle is misunderstood, in a way. I can’t really divulge why, but he is eventually misunderstood. I don’t know why they keep writing a character for me like that, I don’t know. We’ll see.




“American Horror Story” is officially a week away from its season 3 premiere. With “Coven” set to cast its spell on audiences on Oct. 9, a little more scoop on the coming drama has leaked online – more specifically about “AHS” alum Evan Peters.

Fans of the FX mini-series may already know that Peters, who also starred in the season 1 murder house and season 2’s “Asylum,” will be returning in a much different role this year … a frat boy named Kyle Spencer. E! Online reports that Kyle is a member of the Kappa Alpha Gamma fraternity.

Details on Evan Peters’ new role are being kept under wraps, but we do know that he’ll be interacting with two important ladies – his season 1 on-screen love, Taissa Farmiga, who will be playing Zoe Benson, and his real-life girlfriend, Emma Roberts, who will be playing Madison Montgomery.

Evan Peters will play Quicksilver in the 2014 superhero movie mash-up X-Men: Days of Future Past. The character will also appear in the 2015 film The Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Peters spoke to IGN recently about the character, special effects and his Avengers counterpart. Here are some highlights:

On making Quicksilver’s super speed effects:
“They used motion capture. I don’t know what I can say about it and not get in trouble, I really don’t. But they shot a lot of slow motion. They brought in an amazing camera, the Phantom. It’s, like, 3600 frames per second. They brought in these huge, bright lights and did some amazing, amazing stuff with it. I’m excited to see it all cut together and check all that out. It’s going to be really cool.”

On how his character is different from the comics’ version:
“Bryan Singer has a lot of creative freedom on these X-Men movies. He can do pretty much whatever he wants with them. There’s always that risk (of negative fan reaction), but I think at the end of the day, you want to try to make the best movie you can. You kinda gotta go with your gut on that.”

On his Avengers counterpart:
“Well, my character can’t be in The Avengers. It’s going to be a different one. It won’t be me. It’ll be someone else. But yeah, I didn’t focus too much on it. I mean, what an amazing opportunity to be a part of X-Men. I’m gonna try to do the best job that I can and not let anyone down. That was pretty much where I was at with it. I just thought it was really cool to be a part of all the special effects stuff and the movies that I grew up loving. It’s awesome.”

Wrapped up in the turmoil is new arrival, Zoe (Taissa Farmiga), who is harboring a terrifying secret of her own. Alarmed by the recent aggression, Fiona (Jessica Lange), the long-absent Supreme, sweeps back into town, determined to protect the Coven and hell-bent on decimating anyone who gets in her way.
