Cillian Murphy’s roles often include an element of malevolence, the opposite of his actual persona, discovers Luxury London. With Irish charm and genuine modesty, he’s one of Hollywood’s nice guys
Whenever you read about Cork-born actor Cillian Murphy, it’s typically his physical attributes that get talked up the most. Sure, he might have cheekbones that deserve their own postcode and eyes that could convince you to do the most heinous of crimes, but what’s more impressive is his range as an actor; he is the antithesis of typecast.
From a young trans woman in Breakfast on Pluto (for which he won Best Actor at the Irish Film and Television Academy Awards) to the leader of a Birmingham gang in Peaky Blinders, from Batman’s nemesis and crazy psychiatrist in Batman Begins to a post-apocalyptic survivor in 28 Days Later, Murphy’s character profile is chameleon, but all of his roles have a similar theme. They ’re executed with a intensity that’s helping define a career.
One of his is latest projects, Anthropoid, may sound like a sci-fi film, but it’s actually a taut biopic thriller inspired by the gallant efforts of two freedom fighters and their mission to eliminate notorious top-ranking Nazi, and Hitler’s third in command, Reinhard Heydrich, the architect of the Final Solution during World War II. He undertakes the role of a Czechoslovakian resistance fighter Jozef Gabčík, head of a team of soldiers tasked with the assassination. Starring alongside fellow Irishman Jamie Dornan, known for the racy film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey and the BBC series The Fall, both men admit they didn’t know about the story before being approached for the film.
“It’s not widely known outside of the Czech Republic, which is kind of criminal given how it altered the course of World War II and consequently altered the course of history,” says Murphy. “It’s part of their identity in the Czech Republic. It was fascinating to learn about it and these different aspects of the war that affected the outcome.” Murphy describes how it’s a “story of remarkable heroism and human endeavour”.
On working alongside the man of the moment Dornan, Murphy says, “the man is an ogre.” Of course, Murphy is saying this in jest – when describing the pair, the word ‘bromance’ is regularly thrown around.

We had to move host so apologies for the site being down, we are back up and running and I’m working on getting the site back up to date. For now, I have added all the recent events of Cillian to the image gallery.
Cillian Murphy (pictured) has been announced as the campaign ambassador for Radio Nova’s 2016 ‘Help Our Homeless’ Radiothon. The Dublin-based radio station aims to raise €40,000 in a live, on-air charity pledge-drive, to help fund Focus Ireland’s work to tackle and prevent homelessness in the Greater Dublin area. The Radiothon will take place live on Radio Nova on February 17 and 18, 2016.
It is Nova’s second year to run the Radiothon. In 2015 the station raised more than €30,000 for Focus Ireland, over two days of broadcasting. “The Radiothon represents an urgent appeal for donations to support Focus Ireland’s vital work for those those who are homeless and at risk of homelessness,” a statement from the station said. “The campaign comes as, for the first time, more than 5,000 people across Ireland are homeless. This includes more than 700 families and over 1,600 children across the country.”
Having come to prominence first in Kirsten Sheridan’s Disco Pigs in 2001, Murphy has enjoyed a stellar career on stage and screen. He starred as Scarecrow in Batman Begins (2005) – a role he reprised in The Dark Knight (2008) and The Dark Knight Rises (2012) – and also picked up a plethora of awards and nominations for his performances in Neil Jordan’s Breakfast On Pluto, Ken Loach’s The Wind That Shakes The Barley and Christopher Nolan’s Inception. He is currently starring opposite Jamie Dornan in Anthropoid, directed by Sean Ellis and set for release later this year.
Cillian Muprhy has admitted that there’s no way he could handle the level of fame fellow Irish actor Jamie Dornan has.
The Co. Down star exploded onto the international scene when he was cast in 50 Shades of Grey, but Cillian reckons he couldn’t cope with that level of notoriety.
“I just can’t even fathom what that must be like. It’s a concept that’s so indescribable, it wouldn’t be for me,” he said.
“But Jamie is an incredible actor and person, you wouldn’t know with him,” he told the Irish Sun.
The pair worked together on World War 2 drama Anthropoid and Cillian revealed that Jamie hasn’t let the pressures of fame affect his performances.
“He’s very professional yet so kind and laid back. None of that, anything going on, affects his performance or who he is.”
Despite huge success with flicks like 28 Days Later, The Dark Knight and Red Eye, the Cork actor enjoys the anonymity he has walking down the street.
“It’s the perfect balance. (Fame) can come with the job so it’s how you handle it and luckily, no one has much interest in me. There’s nothing fascinating there. Nothing to report on.”
“So I don’t get photographed and rarely have anyone coming up to me. I can stroll down the road to shops and no one looks. I wouldn’t want it any other way.”
The Wind That Shakes The Barley star also divulged that he plans to star in an Irish production next year.
“The level of quality in theatre at home is astounding so of course, I’ll be back working on another thing soon enough. Maybe not for a while though,” he said.
