Peacemaker Actor Freddie Stroma On Playing Vigilante, A Dangerous BFF [Interview]

Freddie Stroma plays the very dangerous "yes man" in Peacemaker's life, Adrian Chase, AKA Vigilante. In Vigilante's story, in which he casts himself as a hero, he also casts himself as Peacemaker's BFF. He's less of a sidekick, and more of Chris' partner in crime — and life. He's also unhinged and, all jokes aside, terrifying. Yet, against all odds during the season 1 finale, creator James Gunn and Stroma make audiences want to see this sociopath survive in the end.

'Peacemaker': Freddie Stroma on What He'd Like to Explore in Season 2 and the Vigilante/Peacemaker Bromance

Editor's note: The below interview contains mild spoilers for the Peacemaker Season 1 finale.The HBO Max series Peacemaker, which hails from the wild mind of writer-director James Gunn, picks up after the events of last year's movie The Suicide Squad, where its titular character (played by John Cena) is nursing his wounds in the aftermath of the Corto Maltese mission and trying to decide what's next — especially since he's pretty sure a lot of people want him dead. Turns out there's another task that needs his particular set of skills called "Project Butterfly," along with a new team made up of misfits who might just have to come together to save the world — or at least die trying. The series, which was just renewed for a second season with Gunn writing and directing every episode, also stars Danielle Brooks as Leota Adebayo (later revealed to be the daughter of Viola Davis' Amanda Waller), Jennifer Holland and Steve Agee reprising their roles from The Suicide Squad as A.R.G.U.S. agents Emilia Harcourt and John Economos, Freddie Stroma as Adrian Chase/Vigilante, Chukwudi Iwuji as Clemson Murn, the leader of Project Butterfly, Robert Patrick as Peacemaker's father Auggie Smith/White Dragon, Nhut Le as Judomaster, and many more.

'Peacemaker': Freddie Stroma on Vigilante and Passing James Gunn's A**hole Test (Exclusive)

After debuting to critical acclaim, Peacemaker has enraptured fans with its tongue-in-cheek yet action-packed take on life of an antihero who desperately wants to be liked. While John Cena’s titular egotistical hired assassin is at the center of James Gunn’s HBO Max series, it's the ensemble cast of quirky characters that really brings the story alive. Especially Freddie Stroma, who plays Peacemaker’s longtime, adoring friend, Vigilante, a sociopath who has no problem killing anyone who has done wrong -- or seen him out of costume.
