The Staircase is a miniseries based on the real-life murder mystery surrounding a writer whose wife was murdered in their home. Colin Firth plays Michael Peterson, the husband accused (and — spoiler alert — convicted) of killing his wife. The Academy Award winner acknowledged that he’s never really encountered a character like this in his professional life, and he told us how he was able to find his way into the character’s headspace.
