American Horror Story star Evan Peters has shared his five favourite episodes of the series.
The actor has proven to be one of the most reliable and versatile stars of the horror anthology series, having appeared as a regular in the first eight seasons: Murder House, Asylum, Coven, Freakshow, Hotel, Roanoke, Cult and Apocalypse.
Earlier this year, fans were left in utter turmoil after Peters announced that he would be taking a “sabbatical” from the series to focus on other endeavours. The star said the show had taken an emotional toll on his mental health.
“I’m goofy, I’m silly, I like to have fun. I don’t like to yell and scream. I actually hate it. I think it’s disgusting and really awful, and it’s been a challenge for me. Horror Story sort of demanded that of me,” he said.
“It’s been all a massive stretch for me and really difficult to do. It’s hurting my soul and Evan as a person.
“There’s this massive amount of rage that’s been called upon from me, and the emotional stuff that’s been called on me for Pose has been heartbreaking, and I’m sick. I don’t feel good.”
Although he’s sitting the current season out, Peters has taken the time to share his five favourite episodes of American Horror Story in celebration of the show’s milestone 100th episode. Coven stans won’t be too pleased…
His picks were: Rubber Man (Murder House), Welcome to Briarcliff (Asylum), Monsters Among Us (Freakshow), Devil’s Night (Hotel) and Charles (Manson) in Charge (Cult). Do you agree with his choices?
Or do we need to get #JusticeForCoven, #JusticeForRoanoke and #JusticeForApocalypse trending?
The ninth season of American Horror Story, 1984, aired earlier this month and received praise for providing the show’s usual combination of camp and horror, and for paying homage to iconic slasher films such as Sleepaway Camp and Halloween.
1984 follows five teenagers – played by Emma Roberts, Billie Lourd, Cody Fern, Gus Kenworthy and DeRon Horton – who become camp counsellors for the summer to escape the wrath of a Los Angeles serial killer called The Night Stalker.
There, they encounter a lunatic called Mr Jingles who slaughtered nine people at the camp 14 years prior.
It stars Emma Roberts, Billie Lourd, Cody Fern, Gus Kenworthy (in his acting debut), DeRon Horton, Matthew Morrison, Zach Villa, Angelica Ross, John Carroll Lynch, Orla Brady and Tara Karsian.
It is also the first season of the show to not star Sarah Paulson.
The 100th episode premiered last night in the US and will air tonight in the UK on Fox – watch the trailer below.
