A very famous web series Peaky Blinders Season 5 packed now expecting its course for the 6th one too. Here we are going to talk about which scene, in particular, Cillian Murphy was struggling in Tommy Shelby.
Cillian Murphy is just a love bird for Peaky Blinders Season 5 fans, he played the role of Tommy Shelby. As the plot proceeded numerous scenes were difficult for him to handle, from losing his wife to the death of his brother.
However, in recent few interviews after the release of season 1, he did reveal this to us that which among those was the hardest for him.
Which Scene was the toughest for Tommy Shelby?
In the genre of crime dramas, Cillian Murphy is so wanted by people especially as the gangster Tommy Shelby. He first appeared in 2013 for his role-play when series aired for the first season on BBC two and his journey began.
He went through a lot of dark times but the actor indeed revealed the toughest scene for Tommy Shelby in one of his interviews.
He said “I’m not a tough guy at all so it was by far the toughest character I have ever portrayed. And him being so physical and the amount of respect and fear that this family has in this town means that we all had to look tough.
You’ve got to commit to the material and commit to the character and his choices. We did a lot of fighting, stunts, and so I’ve been to the gym more than I’ve ever been in my whole life!”
To fit in the role Murphy was transformed completely, he had to cut his hairs short for getting that classic Peaky Blinder look, he went to GYM.
To adopt the role, he also said: “Also learning to handle horses, as I’ve never really done that before. So, I had gone and spent weeks learning how to ride and how to look reasonably competent on a horse.” And fans are familiar with how fond is Tommy for horses.
In the interviews that why in the first place he enrolled himself for the show, he said that he was just drawn towards this character as soon as he read the script about the character.
His exact quoted words are “It’s just very unusual and very compelling and the character Tommy Shelby is kind of an enigma.
I haven’t done television in many, many years and there’s kind of a golden age with television now and for actors to get to explore characters over six hours is a real treat, especially when you have writing of that cowritten.
Yes, the good news is that Murphy would be returning for his role in season 6. Currently, due to the outbreak of the pandemic of COVID 19, filming has been postponed.
It will be resumed as soon as the situation gets better and we do pray for everyone’s health and safety. Director Anthony Byrne said that there is a possibility to resemble the work by the end of this year.
His words are: “That feels achievable. Whether that’s true or not, I have no idea. If we did start shooting in January  we wouldn’t finish until May or June and then it’s another six months of editing.”
