“Hotels are terrifying and I am actually very scared to start working on this one — very scared,” teases Evan Peters about the upcoming “American Horror Story: Hotel” season coming to FX this fall. Watch our complete webcam chat below.
“‘The Shining’ scared the crap out of me,” admits the actor. “I don’t know if it’ll be anything like ‘The Shining,’ but anything in a hotel is terrifying. Just the energy — the different energies in the rooms. And I have a feeling that the sets are gonna be gorgeous this year, because they always do a gorgeous job. So, I’m excited to see that.”
All we know so far about his’ new “Hotel” character is what creator Ryan Murphy tweeted earlier this spring: “This season, Evan Peters will be waiting for you in Room 64.” Talk about creepy!
For “American Horror Story: Freak Show,” Murphy and FX decided to place Peters in this year’s Emmy race for Best Movie/Mini Actor, as opposed to Supporting race where he’d previously contended. What does Peters make of his Emmy promotion? “It’s very cool. It was definitely a lead role. I mean, there were some insane things happened to him and a great arc for Jimmy, so I was very happy to be given that role.”
