Sterling Beaumon gets really creepy for serial killer role
By Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith
HollywoodNews.com: Sterling Beaumon — young Ben Linus to “Lost” fans — returns to the tube tonight (10/20) in “Criminal Minds” as a seriously disturbing character.
The writer described him as a budding psychopath who is a serial killer. That right there — from the word ‘psychopath’ I was hooked and I thought, ‘I’ve got to do this character,’” says the 15-year-old actor, who has definitely matured since viewers saw him last.
His character appears to be an ingratiatingly appealing high school kid, but, notes Sterling, “You can see, all his emotions are put on, they’re acted, because he really has no emotion. It’s completely different from anything I’ve done.”
He also notes, “I guess the writer had been a huge fan of ‘Lost’ and had also seen me on ‘The Cleaner,’ so from what I’m told, she wrote this role with me in mind, which was great.”
