Dyer: Psycho role upset my partner

Danny Dyer admits he wasn't easy company while filming Deviation

Danny Dyer has revealed his partner found him a nightmare to live with while he was filming his new film Deviation.

The Human Traffic star - who lives with childhood sweetheart Joanne and their two daughters - plays a serial killer who escapes from prison and kidnaps unsuspecting nurse Amber in the intense thriller.

Danny said: "I was a bit of a weirdo when I was filming it, I can't lie.

"My missus, she found me a nightmare to live with. I couldn't really explain it to her as well. It was shot at night so I was coming home when she was getting up with the kids and we were like passing ships.

"It was hard to snap out of it when I got home. Not in the way where I would want to kill people, but I was such a childlike character and I've got these split personalities.

"I'm not method by any way of the imagination but with that roIe, I think I really had to get into it."

The 34-year-old actor - who recently made a cameo in Casualty as a mental patient who believed he was a paramedic - hopes his new role will show people he can be more than just a hardman.

Danny said: "I think people will think it's going to be obvious, that I'm going to play it in an obvious way. I'm a serial killer so I'm going to be all snarling and generally nasty. But actually I think I try to do something different with it.

"So I'm hoping people will think, 'I can see what he's trying to do there, maybe he's not a bad actor.' I'll be happy with that."

::Deviation is released on February 24 and available to own on DVD on February 27.

Rebelling against outmoded conventions is liberating. Usually, you're comfortable with tradition. In this situation, you realise the old ways are a liability. Stuffy rules and regulations are stopping a large amount of people from accessing resources and services. It's up to you to sound the alarm. When the powers that be realise you mean business, they'll work hard to update the regulations. You'll make several new friends after getting involved with this cause.More
