If you’re a fan of true crime documentaries, you might’ve kept your eyes peeled over the newly-released Netflix show, Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story. Directed by Ryan Murphy, the bone-chilling show features the story of one of America’s most notorious serial killers Jeffrey Dahmer, told from the points of view of his victims. While netizens have split views regarding the show and the romanticization of another criminal, we can’t help but give praise to Evan Peters’ performance. Here are some facts about him as well as his previous roles:
He was born in the late ’80s
In case you wanted to see how compatible you are with Evan, he is 34 years old as of writing. We don’t have his astrology charts to let you know if the stars have aligned you with him, but he was born on January 20, 1987.
He knows how to knit
In an interview with Cosmopolitan in 2015, Evans shared he knows how to knit. He is known to take evil or challenging roles, making this hobby the complete opposite of what we usually see on screen. If you’re looking for a new hobby, why don’t you give knitting a go and make yourself a sweater just in time for the Ber months?

X-Men Film Series
Evan may be known for his evil roles but he’s also played the hero. He’s appeared in different X-Men movies as Quicksilver or Peter Maximoff!
It must’ve been a full circle moment for Evan when he got cast and appeared in WandaVision as Quicksilver. In the past, the actor shared he actually became an actor because of the Olsen twins, Elizabeth Olsen (Wanda)’s twin sisters!
American Horror Story (since 2011)
Evan Peters is one of the few actors to have a regular role in American Horror Story, which gave him one of his most famous roles, Tate Langdon, from the series’ first season Murder House.
In another superhero role, Evans portrayed Todd Haynes in the 2010 film Kick-Ass. Unfortunately, he wasn’t able to keep the role in the second film, as it coincided with the filming schedule of American Horror Story in 2011.
