Here’s a look at some of Evan’s most captivating roles he has played over the years.


Tate Langdon: American Horror Story – Murder House

A turning point in Peters’ career came with this American Horror Story season 1 role. The juvenile killer was the first of many eerie characters that Peters would play as a regular in the horror series. Murder House is always on repeat and it’s because of Tate Langdon.


Quicksilver: X-Men

Prior to taking on his appearance in WandaVision, Peters portrayed Peter Maximoff, also known as Quicksilver, in the X-Men series. From serial killer to superhero, Peters shows us that he can really do it all.

Warren Lipka: American Animals

Peters portrays Warren Lipka, a perpetrator in an art robbery, in a movie based on a true story. Peters does a beautiful job of bringing Warren to life, and continuously impresses us with his wide range of acting personas.

Kai Anderson: American Horror Story – Cult

In the seventh season of American Horror Story, Cult, Evan Peters portrays the would-be cult leader Kai Anderson, one of the most ominous and terrifying characters. Peters embodied a truly unsettling cult leader, which ultimately got him the nomination for Best Actor in a Movie or Limited Series at the 8th Critics’ Choice Awards.


Colin Zaber: Mare of Eastown

In this HBO crime drama, Peters plays a detective alongside Kate Winslet rather than committing murder like many of his AHS characters. This intriguing criminal thriller takes place in a tiny village, and it’s a refreshing change to see Peters play the good guy for once. This performance also gained him 5 nominations and 3 wins for Best Supporting Actor in a Limited Series.

Jeffrey Dahmer: Dahmer – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story

In the limited-series crime thriller Dahmer – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story, Evan Peters portrays the show’s main character, serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer.

It’s clear that Evan Peters can make us love him and also be terrified of him. Whether he’s making his appearances on AHS or get resurrected in the Marvel universe, Evan Peters will always hold a special place in our hearts, and we can’t wait to see what his next project will be!
