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

Capricorn:

Your dry humour will be very popular. It's always difficult bringing a large group of people together. Everybody feels like they are walking on eggshells. After cracking a few jokes, you'll put the group at ease. Resist the temptation to make fun of relatives, especially the more sensitive members of the group. Nobody likes feeling singled out. Watching a light hearted comedy can also be a great way to generate a festive atmosphere. This is a time when people can put their differences aside.More
