At a panel discussion for Netflix, the series participants came together around creator Ryan Murphy (56) and main actor Peters. Murphy revealed on the occasion that the lead actor prepared meticulously for his performance. Peters stayed in the role "for months", as "Variety" reports.

During four months of pre-production and six months of filming, Peters wore lead weights around his arms and insoles in his shoes to match Dahmer's "physicality". Lead actor Peters explained, "[Dahmer] has a very straight back. He doesn't move his arms when he runs, so I put weights around my arms to understand how that feels. I wore the character's shoes with insoles , his jeans, his glasses and had a cigarette in his hand at all times."

Peters emphasized "those external things" while filming "Dahmer" so that the character became his "second nature". Niecy Nash (52), who also stars in "Dahmer" and embodies Jeffrey Dahmer's neighbor, says she was asked by acquaintances: "How is Evan [Peters]?", to which she was unable to answer because the series star was throughout the series Filming remained in his role. "I don't know this man," actress Nash joked during the panel discussion on the Netflix series, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
