My Top Five Favorite Evan Peters roles in American Horror Story

Hello everyone and welcome back to my blogspace! This week we’re running with the same theme of American Horror Story (AHS) because I enjoyed writing the last one a lot. I am also gonna try my best to leave out any spoilers!

5. Kai Anderson

In the seventh season of AHS (Cult) Evan Peters plays, funnily enough, a cult leader. Needless to say, he truly embodied the character and did him justice. It’s not his BEST look, but who cares about that when his performance of this character was so so good.


4. Kit Walker

Peters plays Kit Walker in the second season of AHS (Asylum) and I’m not gonna sit here and lie to you guys about how impressed I was with this character. Not only because I was so excited to see him again after the first season, but because of how it introduced his variety of skills and how well he can play any type of character.

3. James Patrick March

Speaking of variety, James Patrick March is one of the most intriguing characters played by Evan Peters. He might not be a fan favorite from the fifth season (Hotel) but he sure was one of my favorites. He’s the original owner and designer of the Hotel Cortez and he plays a HUGE role in the plot of this season. 

2. Austin Sommers

AUSTIN SOMMERS. In the newest season of AHS, the double feature, but more specifically Red Tide, Peters plays a former drag queen turned famous writer, Austin Sommers. We get to see a different side of Peters along with a new type of character he can portray. Austin Sommers’s personality was just so fitting for the character type. I enjoyed seeing him play so well on-screen.

1. Tate Langdon

As you can see from the picture, Tate is an itty bitty bit troubled. Though, despite how the character was supposed to be taken, the AHS fandom had completely like adopted this kid. I’m not complaining though, he’s by far my favorite character in the whole universe. It’s so cool to see how creepy and eerie, yet loveable he can be in a way? Yes, he did some REALLY bad things, but for some reason, everyone seems to love this character. We get to see the humanity in him as well as the bad, even if it’s only a little bit of good compared to a lot of bad. That’s all thanks to how well Peters played this character.
