With keen instincts and great enthusiasm while assuming both dramatic and comedic roles, Evan Peters is an actor on the rise with a career sure to be distinct and bright.

Peters is perhaps best known for his breakthrough role on Ryan Murphy’s Golden Globe nominated series American Horror Story that originally premiered in the fall of 2011. Peters played the controversial Tate Langdon and captivated audiences with his chilling yet endearing performance. Peters was recognized as a stand-out actor on the show and along with Jessica Lange was one of the series regulars chosen by Ryan Murphy to return for the second chapter of the show. He played Kit Walker in American Horror Story: Asylum, which premiered in October of 2012 on FX.

Evans recently wrapped production on two back-to-back indie feature films, fresh off the success of American Horror Story. The first, Adult World opposite John Cusack and Emma Roberts; followed by Truck Stop with Juno Temple.

Peters displayed his range with various dramatic and comedic roles in films such as Kick- Ass, Gardens of the Night, and An American Crime, and in guest starring roles on the popular television series The Mentalist, House, Monk and The Office.

Peters was born in St. Louis, Missouri, to Phillip and Julie Peters. He got into acting when his family moved to Grand Blanc, Michigan where he enrolled in a local talent agency and was put on tape for his now-deceased manager Craig Wargo. Impressed by Peters, Craig convinced him to move to Los Angeles to pursue acting professionally. Peters soon landed roles in MGM's Sleepover, Disney's Phil of the Future and ABC’s The Days and Invasion.

Peters currently resides in Burbank, California.
