Murphy’s Most Iconic Roles

Cillian Murphy is a chameleon in Hollywood. From PEAKY BLINDERS to BATMAN, he proves time and time again that he is one of the most prolific actors of our time. Born in Cork County, Ireland, the actor found his love of performing arts at a young age. While he was initially interested in pursuing music (and was offered a record deal), he decided to study law. In honor of Murphy’s 46th birthday, L’OFFICIEL recognizes some of the star’s most impressive performances of his career.

Cillian Murphy remembers Helen McCrory

Irish actor Cillian Murphy has said it was “very strange” to film the final series of PEAKY BLINDERS without Helen McCrory, as he remembered his “brave” and “magnificent” former co-star. Murphy, who plays protagonist Tommy Shelby in the hit series, said in an interview with Esquire on Tuesday that McCrory was the “beating heart” of the show. A release date for the final season has not been confirmed but the series is expected to air later this month on Netflix.
