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.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

Your partner may be irresponsible with money and you're tired of paying the price for it. Keeping separate financial accounts may be the arrangement for the two of you. If your amour continues to accumulate debt without fear of the consequences, it may be time to part ways. You're a practical person who yearns for financial security. Putting money into a savings account gives you the freedom to travel, write and study. Don't be ashamed of your needs; they encompass your personality.More
