The Staircase is based on the real-life story of Michael Peterson, who was initially convicted of his wife’s 2001 murder. Because of inconsistencies in his original trial, though, Peterson has been a free man for over 10 years. However, the man who plays him in The Staircase, Colin Firth, had no interest in meeting Peterson. When we spoke with the Oscar-winning actor, he explained his decision to steer clear of his real-life character. (Click on the media bar below to hear Colin Firth)
