Rory Monahan is a conceited actor. He is a character in Roanoke portrayed by Evan Peters. Rory Monahan reenacted Edward Philippe Mott in "My Roanoke Nightmare".


While shooting "My Roanoke Nightmare", Rory fell in love with his fellow actress Audrey Tindall. Their relationship was crowned by marriage before the second season of the series, entitled "Return to Roanoke: Three Days in Hell", began its production.

Personality and Appearance[]

Rory is very humorous and laidback. Despite society's negative connotations with a younger man marrying an older woman, he doesn't seem to find this an issue between Audrey and him. His hair is red and always ruffled and he dresses a lot more casually and informally, a contrast between his more mature wife.


Not much is known about his career before landing his break through the role on My Roanoke Nightmare. After meeting Audrey Tindall who plays Shelby Miller, they soon get married before the two are invited for the show's sequel, Return to Roanoke: Three Days in Hell.

Almost immediately after arriving at the infamous North Carolina house, he finds out that he will be working with Brad Pitt and quickly decides that he will not continue with the reality show, and be away from his wife for six months. This opportunity is cut short when he is brutally murdered by the nurses whilst trying to locate a supposed actor that Sidney hired to scare his wife.[2]
