Cillian Murphy is an Irish theatre and film actor who is notoriously known for his roles in the Batman Movie as well as in the on-going TV series, "Peaky Blinders".
Cillian Murphy is a theatre and a film actor born in Ireland. He came into popularity because of his portrayal of various characters in both independent as well as mainstream films.
Even though he started his career as a rock musician, he declined various record deals so that he can focus on his acting career.
His official debut came in 1996 when he played Darren in Enda Walsh’s play ‘Disco Pigs’.
Cillian was born on the 25th of May in 1976 in Douglas, Ireland. He is the oldest child in his family. His father, Brendan Murphy works as an employee in the Irish Department of Education while his mother, whose name is currently unknown used to be a French-tutor.
He was raised along with his brother Paidi and two sisters Orla and Sile. They were raised in Ballintemple.
Cillian started his journey in his music at the young age of 10. The whole Murphy family were Roman Catholic. So, Cillian studied in the Catholic school named Presentation Brothers College.
This is the college where he first developed the taste in acting. He was encouraged by his English teacher, Poet William Wall to pursue acting but at that particular age, Murphy was more into music than in acting.
Cillian along with his brother Paidi were a part of several bands when they were in their teens and even during their early 20s. Their most prominent band was ‘The Sons of Greengenes’.
They were offered a five-album record deal by Acid Jazz records but they declined the offer because Paidi was still in secondary school.
Murphy enrolled at the University College Cork to study law. However, he himself claimed “there was no ambition behind it”. He was busy with his band for most of the time and as a result had to fail his first year.
Cillian’s interest and love for acting increased when he saw ‘A Clockwork Orange’, a Corcadorca Theatre Company’s production. He made his official debut as an actor in the September of 1996 as ‘Darren’ in Enda Walsh’s play ‘Disco Dogs’. In 1997, he gave his time for a short movie ‘Quando’.
Murphy's debut film, 'Sunburn', was released in 1999.
After succeeding in independent films, Cillian got the chance to play as the lead protagonist in ‘28 Days Later’. The movie was made with $8 million budget. To the surprise of the cast, the movie made $84.7 million at the box office.
He even played a transgender founding looking for love role in ‘Breakfast on Pluto’ in 2005. He has even starred alongside Robert De Niro in the movie ‘Red Lights’.
Not only movies but he has even given some important contributions to the stage plays like ‘Much Ado About Nothing’, Neil LaBute’s ‘The Shape of Things’.
Cillian portrayed his character ‘Scarecrow’ in the movies of ‘Batman’. The way he acted got him immense love and support from all over the world.
In terms of series, his most prominent one came in the form of ‘Peaky Blinders’ (2013-Present).
He plays the character ‘Thomas Shelby’, the ambitious and cunning leader of the Irish-Romanic gang ‘Peaky Blinders’. The show even has actors like Tom Hardy.
His current movie ‘Anna’ released in the 29th of June, 2019. This movie is doing well above the expectations of the people. Cillian’s upcoming movie ‘A Quiet Place Part II’ is set to be released on 2020.
The Irish born actor is estimated to have a net-worth of $15 million. His major sources of income include his movie deals and series. His ongoing series, ‘Peaky Blinders’, is one of the most prominent series.
It was reported that Cillian earns around $100-300K from this series. However this report is not completely up-to-the-point as The Irish Actor hasn't given his insights on whether the reported earnings are true or not.
The Irish born actor recently bought a $2.2 million house in Monkstown in Dublin, Ireland.
Not only this, he even has a BMW whose current price is $34000 and Range Rover which as the price of $85000.
