From what we all know, the former actor from Disney, Ross Lynch, was portrayed to play more innocent roles made for younger audiences. However, like all maturing people, he is beginning to spread his wings to new opportunities to match the appeal of older audiences.

The movie My Friend Dahmer has Lynch playing as the main character Jeffrey Dahmer. While the plot focuses strongly on Dahmer, it is mostly based on the perspective of his younger years when young Dahmer is transitioning into the serial killer that is known today in history.

When Ross is interviewed about the character he plays, he seems to be comfortable with the fact that he has a striking resemblance to teenage Jeffrey Dahmer. He even claimed that he “had no clue who Dahmer was until getting the role and starting his research about him”.

When the filming process was just starting up, Lynch had experienced some intense situations and met new people that gave him the encouragement he needed while acting. The house of the Dahmer family made Lynch feel “at home in a weird way”. This feeling increased with the other crew members that had met Dahmer in real life. They claimed that the way Ross walked and wore the glasses that were similar to what Dahmer used to wear had given them an unsettling feeling.

For Ross Lynch, being able to play this sort of role from beginning to end gave him a new experience that he will never forget. Knowing that taking this role would be something that media would deem as “out of what he usually does,” he stresses his belief in variety. Playing a more mature role as compared to his younger years, certainly does not make him any less of an actor.
