Irish actor Cillian Murphy was born on May 25, 1976 (/kli/; KILL-ee-an). In both the 1996 stage production of Disco Pigs by Enda Walsh and its 2001 film adaptation, he made his acting debut. His early prominent filmography includes the thriller Sunshine (2007), the war drama The Wind That Shakes the Barley (2006), the horror movie 28 Days Later (2002), the dark comedy Intermission (2003), the thriller Red Eye (2005), and the Irish war drama The Wind That Shakes the Barley. He received a Golden Globe nomination for his performance in the comedy-drama Breakfast on Pluto (2005) as a transgender Irish woman.
In addition to portraying Scarecrow in The Dark Knight Trilogy (2005–2012), Murphy also had appearances in Inception (2010) and Dunkirk (2017). Murphy and director Christopher Nolan started working together in 2005. He rose to fame for his performances in the horror sequel A Quiet Place Part II (2020) and as Tommy Shelby in the BBC period drama Peaky Blinders (2013–2022). He played J. Robert Oppenheimer in Nolan’s biopic Oppenheimer, which was released in 2023.
Murphy earned the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Solo Performance and the Irish Times Theatre Award for Best Actor in 2011 for the one-man piece Misterman. He was recognized as one of the top Irish film performers by The Irish Times in 2020.
Cillian Murphy Early life
Murphy was born in Douglas, Cork, on May 25, 1976. While his father, Brendan, worked for the Department of Education, his mother taught French. The same was true with his grandfather, aunts, and uncles. Along with his younger brother Páidi, younger sister Sile, and younger sister Orla, he was raised in Ballintemple, Cork. At the age of 10, he began songwriting and performing. He was reared a Catholic and went to Presentation Brothers College, a fee-paying Catholic secondary school, where he excelled academically but frequently got into trouble and was occasionally suspended. In his fourth year, he realized that misbehaving was not worth the hassle. He discovered that artistic activities were neglected at the school since he did not enjoy sports, which made up a large portion of the curriculum.
In his second year of high school, Murphy took part in a theater class taught by Pat Kiernan, the director of the Corcadorca Theatre Company. Later, he referred to the event as a “huge high” and a “fully alive” sense, which motivated him to pursue further information. Although his English teacher, novelist William Wall, encouraged him to pursue acting, he was bent on being a rock star. He and his brother, Páidi, played guitar and sung in various bands in their late teens and early 20s. The Beatles-obsessed pair gave their most popular band the name The Sons of Mr. Green Genes, which they took from the Frank Zappa song of the same name.
Later, he claimed that the group was known for its “wacky lyrics and never-ending guitar solos.” The pair turned down an offer from Acid Jazz Records for a five-album deal since Páidi was still in school and they did not like the paltry sum of money they would receive in exchange for surrendering the record company the rights to Murphy’s works. Murphy admitted in the future, “I’m very glad in retrospect that we didn’t sign because you kind of sign away your life to a label and the whole of your music.”
Murphy enrolled at University College Cork (UCC) in 1996 with the intention of studying law, but he failed his first-year exams because he “had no ambitions to do it.” In addition to being preoccupied with his band, he realized shortly after beginning his studies at UCC that he did not want to practice law. His interest in acting piqued after seeing Kiernan’s stage adaptation of A Clockwork Orange for Corcadorca. His first significant performance was in the amateur play Observe the Sons of Ulster Marching Towards the Somme, produced by the UCC Drama Society and starring Irish-American comedian Des Bishop.
Murphy also starred in their Little Shop of Horrors performance, which was seen in the Cork Opera House. Later, he acknowledged that going out and meeting ladies was more important to him than pursuing an acting profession at the moment.
Cillian Murphy Career
1996–2001: Early work
Pat Kiernan made his professional acting debut on stage in Enda Walsh’s Disco Pigs in September 1996 after Murphy persuaded him to attend an audition at Corcadorca Theatre Company. Kiernan played the wild Cork teen in the play. When Walsh first met and got to know Murphy, she said, “There was something about him – he was really enigmatic and he would walk into a room with genuine presence and you’d think, “My God.” The bloodied eyes that everyone was constantly talking about have nothing to do with it.
I was incredibly arrogant and had nothing to lose, which I suppose fit the part, said Murphy. Disco Pigs’ three-week Cork run turned into a two-year tour of Europe, Canada, and Australia, and Murphy dropped out of both school and his band as a result. Although he had hoped to return to music, his acting career quickly gained traction after his first agent attended a performance of Disco Pigs.
Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing (1998), The Country Boy (1999), and Juno and the Paycock (1999) were among the plays in which he appeared as a lead. He started acting in short films like Filleann a Feall (2000) and Watchmen (2001), as well as indie movies like On the Edge (2001). He additionally played the same part in the 2001 Disco Pigs movie version and The Way We Live Now BBC television miniseries. He relocated from Cork around this time, first spending a few years in Dublin and then moving to London in 2001.
2002–2004: 28 Days Later and breakthrough
At the Dublin Gate Theatre’s 2002 staging of Neil LaBute’s The Shape of Things, Murphy played Adam in the lead role. Fintan O’Toole lauded Murphy’s portrayal in a piece for The Irish Times, saying, “Murphy measures out his metamorphosis with an impressive subtlety and intelligence.”
In Danny Boyle’s 2002 horror movie 28 Days Later, Murphy was given the title role. He played pandemic survivor Jim, who, upon recovering from a coma in a London hospital, is “perplexed to find himself alone in the desolate, post-apocalyptic world.” After being impressed by Murphy’s performance in Disco Pigs, casting director Gail Stevens suggested that Boyle have Murphy try out for the part. The decision to show him entirely naked at the opening of the movie, according to Stevens, was made only after they noticed his lean figure while filming.
She said that Murphy was reserved and tended to look away from the camera while on location, but she gushed about his “dreamy, slightly de-energised, floating quality that is fantastic for the film.” By the following July, 28 Days Later, which had been released in the UK in late 2002, had become a sleeper hit in North America and a global triumph, bringing Murphy in front of a big audience for the first time. As a result of his performance, he was nominated for Breakthrough Male Performance at the 2004 MTV Movie Awards as well as Best Newcomer at the 8th Empire Awards.
Murphy expressed astonishment at the movie’s success and said he thought it was far deeper than a zombie or horror movie. He also claimed that American audiences liked the film’s content and brutality. “The movie did so well,” stated Murphy. We were the first to make zombies run, and that altered everything. You watch zombie content now. That movie holds a very unique place in my heart.
At the Edinburgh International Festival in 2003, Murphy portrayed Konstantine in a stage adaptation of Chekhov’s The Seagull. According to him, Kontastine “goes on this amazing journey through the play […] he comes to realise there’s no point being an iconoclastic writer just for the sake of it, and that the search for new forms has to have something behind it.” This is why he decided to portray Kontastine.
In Intermission (2003), which held the record for highest-grossing Irish independent film in Irish box office history (until The Wind That Shakes the Barley broke it in 2006), Murphy played a lovelorn, helpless grocery stocker who organizes a bank heist with Colin Farrell. Sarah Lyall of the International Herald Tribune said of Murphy’s performances in 28 Days Later and the “sad-sack Dublin shelf-stacker” in Intermission that he brought “fluent ease to the parts he takes on, a smooth and utterly genuine intensity.
People have identified him as Ireland’s next Colin Farrell because of his delicate good looks as well as his acting talent, however one who is less likely to be seen tomcatting or fighting intoxicatedly at premieres. In the 2003 critically acclaimed Hollywood historical drama Cold Mountain, he played a small supporting role. He was only on location in Romania for a week, playing a deserting soldier who appears in a dark sequence with Jude Law’s character. Murphy called it a “massive production” and that Anthony Minghella was the most composed director he had ever encountered. In the 2003 film Girl with a Pearl Earring, starring Scarlett Johansson and Colin Firth, Murphy also played a butcher.
Murphy performed as Christy Mahon in The Playboy of the Western World in 2004 while touring Ireland with the Druid Theatre Company. Garry Hynes, who had earlier directed Murphy in the stage productions of Juno and the Paycock in 1999, also directed Murphy in The Country Boy.
2005–2006: Villainous roles and critical success
In Batman Begins (2005), directed by Christopher Nolan, Murphy played Dr. Jonathan Crane. When asked to try out for the part of Bruce Wayne/Batman, Murphy jumped at the chance to get to know director Nolan even though he didn’t think he had the ideal physique for the superhero. Nolan was so taken with Murphy that he gave him the supporting character of Dr. Crane, whose alter persona is the supervillain Scarecrow, even though the major role went to Christian Bale. He has the most extraordinary eyes, and I was trying to think of reasons for him to take his spectacles off in close-ups, Nolan admitted to Spin magazine.
In Wes Craven’s thriller Red Eye (2005), he played Jackson Rippner, who terrorizes Rachel McAdams on a flight over night. According to Manohla Dargis, a critic for the New York Times, Murphy was “a picture-perfect villain” whose “baby blues look cold enough to freeze water and his wolfish leer suggests its own terrors.” The movie received positive reviews and made close to $100 million globally.
For his nasty performances in 2005, Murphy garnered a number of nominations, including one for Batman Begins’ Best Villain at the 2006 MTV Movie Awards. He was listed in 2005’s “Summer MVPs” by Entertainment Weekly, a cover story list of 10 performers who had great debut performances. “Cillian Murphy, who has angelic looks that can turn sinister, is one of the most elegantly seductive monsters i
n recent movies,” observed David Denby of The New Yorker.
Murphy played Patrick/”Kitten” Braden in Neil Jordan’s comedy-drama Breakfast on Pluto (2005), which was based on Patrick McCabe’s novel of the same name. Braden is a transsexual Irish woman looking for her mother. Murphy changes from an androgynous teen to a high drag blond bombshell when viewed against the film’s kaleidoscopic backdrop of 1970s glitter rock fashion, magic shows, red-light districts, and IRA carnage. Although Jordan liked him for the part, the director of The Crying Game was reluctant to bring up transgender and IRA concerns during his 2001 audition for the position.
In 2004, the actor met a transvestite who dressed him and took him out to a bar with other transvestites while he prepared for the role. The actor lobbied Jordan for years to get the movie done before Murphy became too old to play the part.
Roger Ebert remarked how Murphy portrayed the character with a “bemused and hopeful voice” and that the job required “serious primping” such as brow plucking and breast and leg hair removal. Although ambivalent reviews of Breakfast on Pluto tended to give Murphy’s performance high marks, some reviewers disagreed: He was deemed “unconvincing” and extremely charming by The Village Voice, which gave the movie a bad review. For his work in Breakfast on Pluto, Murphy received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy. He also took home the fourth Irish Film and Television Academy Best Actor Award. His portrayal of Kitten was featured in “The 24 Finest Performances of 2005” by Premiere magazine.
The Wind That Shakes the Barley, a movie about the Irish War of Independence and the Irish Civil War, featured Murphy in 2006. The movie won the Palme d’Or at the 2006 Cannes Film Festival and went on to become the most profitable Irish independent film ever. Due to his close ties to Cork, Ireland, where the movie was filmed, Murphy was particularly eager to be a part of it. Before landing the part of young doctor turned revolutionary Damien O’Donovan, Murphy had to go through six rounds of auditions.
Murphy said he was “tremendously proud” of the movie and felt really privileged to have been granted the role, adding that “memories run very, very deep – the politics, the divisions, and everyone has stories of family members who were caught up in the struggle.”
David Denby praised Murphy for the character’s peculiarities and times of intense silence. According to Kenth Turan of the Los Angeles Times, “Murphy is especially good at playing the zealotry as well as the soul-searching and the regret, at showing us a man who is eaten up alive because he’s forced to act in ways that are contrary to his background and his training.” Murphy received the 2006 Actor of the Year Award from GQ magazine for his performance in The Wind That Shakes the Barley.
2006–2010: Further theatre and film roles
In the lead role of John Kolvenbach’s play Love Song, Murphy made a comeback to the stage, appearing opposite Neve Campbell at the New Ambassadors Theatre in London’s West End from November 2006 to February 2007. Theatre Record regarded Beane as a “winsomely cranky” mentally unstable “sentimentalized lonely hero,” observing how he magnetically changes “comically from painfully shy “wallpaper” to garrulous, amorous male” with “all blue eyes and twitching hands.” He was described as “as magnetic onstage as onscreen” by Variety magazine, who also noted that his “unhurried puzzlement pulls the slight preciousness in the character’s idiot-savant naivete back from the brink.”
He starred as a physicist-astronaut who was tasked with re-igniting the sun in Danny Boyle’s science fiction film Sunshine (2007). In the 2007 independent romantic comedy Watching the Detectives, directed by Paul Soter and starring Lucy Liu, he was one of the main characters. The movie was released on direct-to-DVD after its Tribeca Film Festival premiere. The movie Hippie Hippie Shake, in which Murphy featured as Richard Neville, editor of the radical psychedelic underground journal Oz, was shot in 2007 but was subsequently shelved in 2011.
Prior to acting in The Edge of Love, a film about a love quadrangle involving the poet Dylan Thomas, with Keira Knightley, Sienna Miller, and Matthew Rhys, Murphy made a brief cameo as the Scarecrow in Nolan’s The Dark Knight (2008), the follow-up to Batman Begins. In July 2008, Murphy made his first appearance in a different format—on a postage stamp. The Irish Post Office, An Post, issued a set of four stamps honoring the inventiveness of contemporary Irish films, one of which included a still of Murphy from The Wind That Shakes the Barley.
Murphy appeared in the Broken Social Scene director Kevin Drew’s 2009 film The Water alongside the rock singer Feist and actor David Fox. The title track from the Canadian short film, which runs for 15 minutes and was posted online in April 2009, plays at the end. Murphy was drawn to the part because he liked the band Broken Social Scene and the idea of working on a silent film, which he thought would be the “hardest test for any actor.” Murphy also starred in Perrier’s Bounty, a crime dramedy from the producers of Intermission, in which he played a small-time offender evading capture by Brendan Gleeson’s mobster character.
He made a comeback to the stage in 2010’s From Galway to Broadway and back again, a theatrical production honoring the 35th anniversary of the Druid Theatre Company. Murphy played a guy with a split personality who deceives people into thinking he is also his own wife in the direct-to-video psychological suspense film Peacock (2010), which also starred Elliot Page, Susan Sarandon, and Bill Pullman.
Although Cillian Murphy wasn’t new to appearing in drag, his performance in the movie set a “new standard for gender-bending performances,” according to Christian Toto of The Washington Times, who called it “a handsomely mounted psychological drama with an arresting lead turn by Cillian Murphy.” The next year, in 2010, Murphy played in Christopher Nolan’s Inception as businessman Robert Fischer, whose mind is penetrated by Leonardo DiCaprio’s character Cobb to persuade him to close his company. Murphy also appeared uncredited in Tron: Legacy that same year as programmer Edward Dillinger Jr., the son of original Tron antagonist Ed Dillinger (David Warner).
2011–present: Peaky Blinders and success
Murphy appeared in Enda Walsh’s stage monodrama Misterman, which he had previously collaborated on for Disco Pigs, in 2011. Walsh wrote and directed the play. The play was first performed in Galway before being transferred to St. Ann’s Warehouse in Brooklyn, New York. The live nature of the position, according to Murphy, “makes it so risky. You’re only present due to the goodwill of the audience, which is made worse by the fact that it’s a one-man show. His performance received favorable reviews and was recognized with an Irish Times Theatre Award and a Drama Desk Award.
Thomas Magill, played by Murphy, was praised for his wicked mimicry by Sarah Lyall of the International Herald Tribune, who called him a “complicated mixture of sympathetic and not nice at all – deeply wounded, but with a dangerous, skewed moral code”. In his review of the intense one-man show Misterman, Lyall praised Murphy for his “unusual ability to create and inhabit creepy yet fascinating characters from the big screen to the small stage,” and he noted that one night the “theater was flooded, not with applause but with silence,” eventually leading to a standing ovation at his powerful performance.
In the 2011 British horror movie Retreat, which only had a limited release, he portrayed the lead role. Additionally, he acted in the mediocre science fiction movie In Time (2011) with Justin Timberlake and Amanda Seyfried.
With Robert De Niro and Sigourney Weaver, Murphy co-starred in the 2012 film Red Lights. He portrayed Tom Buckley, the character’s aide who works as a paranormal investigator for Weaver. Murphy saw his collaboration with De Niro as one of his most threatening professional experiences. He said, “In my first scene, my character is meant to be afraid and intimidated when I visit him. There wasn’t any acting done. The man exudes authority. You are unable to act present. Never will I own that. When you turn on the camera and watch him utilize it, it just takes on a different quality.
The movie received negative reviews from reviewers and did poorly at the box office. Murphy later returned to the character of the Scarecrow in The Dark Knight Rises (2012) for a third time, and he also played Mike in the British independent film Broken (2012). He was nominated for Best Supporting Actor at the British Independent Film Awards for his work.
In the BBC television series Peaky Blinders, which follows a criminal group in Birmingham following World War I, Murphy has played Thomas Shelby since 2013. Director Steven Knight first chose Jason Statham for the part after meeting with both actors to discuss the part. In a subsequent statement, Knight added, “Cillian, when you meet him, isn’t Tommy, obviously, but I was stupid enough to not understand that. He decided to go with Murphy after getting a text from Murphy that stated, “Remember, I’m an actor.” “The scripts were so compelling and confident, and the character was so rich and complex, layered and contradictory,” said Murphy to The Independent. I thought, “I have to do this.”
Peaky Blinders was well-received and scored highly. In October 2014, the BBC began airing the second season. Season 5’s debut episode premiered on BBC One on August 25. Director Anthony Byrne stated in a Digital Spy interview that “if we did start shooting in January (2021), we wouldn’t finish until May or June, and then it’s another 6 months of editing.” This would put the premiere of Peaky Blinders’ final season around the end of 2021 or the start of 2022.
Murphy made his directing debut in 2013 with a music video for the song Hold Me Forever by the band Money. The English National Ballet dancers are in the video, which was shot at London’s Old Vic Theater.
In 2014, Murphy appeared in Wally Pfister’s Transcendence and the play Aloft. According to the review aggregate Rotten Tomatoes, both of them received largely negative reviews from critics. Murphy and Enda Walsh collaborated on the play Ballyturk in the same year. In the Heart of the Sea, a 2015 movie directed by Ron Howard, he played the lead role. He provided spoken vocals for the Paul Hartnoll album 8:58 songs “8:58” and “The Clock” in 2015.
When Hartnoll started composing the second season of Peaky Blinders, the two had already met. Murphy played Jozef Gabk, a member of the Czechoslovak army during World War II who was involved in Operation Anthropoid, the assassination of Reinhard Heydrich in the film Anthropoid, in Ben Wheatley’s Free Fire in 2016. Cillian’s performance in Anthropoid was praised by Rupert Hawksley of The Telegraph, who added that he is “not asked to do an awful lot, other than smoke and look perplexed.”
In Christopher Nolan’s 2017 war movie Dunkirk, Murphy portrayed an army officer who has suffered shell shock and is rescued from a sinking ship. He believed that his unnamed figure, known only as Shivering Soldier, “represented something experienced by thousands of soldiers, namely the profound emotional and psychological toll that war can have.” Murphy plays Emmett, a grizzled survivor and longtime friend of the Abbotts, in A Quiet Place Part II, which will be released on May 28, 2021. The Abbotts are grudgingly taken in by Murphy’s character after the events of the first movie.
Murphy will play J. Robert Oppenheimer in Christopher Nolan’s upcoming movie Oppenheimer, which will be released on July 21, 2023.
Cillian Murphy Public image
Murphy, who is reserved and quiet, claims to have no interest in the celebrity culture since he sees walking the red carpet as “a challenge” that he does not “want to overcome.” He states, “I haven’t created any controversy, I don’t sleep around, and I don’t go and fall down drunk.” He deliberately leads a lifestyle that will not attract the attention of the tabloids. In order to promote Perrier’s Bounty, he did not appear on any television talk shows until 2010, when he was a guest on Ireland’s Late Late Show. Despite this, he continued to be reticent. He prefers to keep his personal life private.
He was recognized as one of GQ’s 50 best-dressed men in 2015.
Cillian Murphy Activism
In addition to advocating for the rights of the homeless alongside the group Focus Ireland, Murphy took part in the 2007 Rock the Vote Ireland campaign, which targeted young voters for the general election. In 2011, he was named a patron of the National University of Ireland Galway’s UNESCO Child and Family Research Center. Professor Pat Dolan, Director of the UCFRC and UNESCO Chair in Children, Youth, and Civic Engagement, is directly connected to his work. He expressed his support for the former Vita Cortex employees who participated in a sit-in at their facility in February 2012 and thanked them for “highlighting [what] is hugely important to us all as a nation.”
Cillian Murphy Personal life
Midway through 2004, Murphy wed Yvonne McGuinness, his longtime love interest whom he had first met in 1996 while attending a concert with his rock band. From 2001 to 2015, they resided in London before relocating to Dublin. Two sons were born to them, one in December 2005 and the other in July 2007.
Murphy, an enthusiastic music fan, declared in 2004 that “the only extravagant thing about my lifestyle is my stereo system, buying music, and going to gigs.” He no longer performs in a rock band, but he still writes songs and plays music frequently with friends and by himself Murphy has stated that he has no plans to form a new band and that, even if he were talented, “the idea of being an actor with a rock band on the side would mean I’d never be taken seriously.”
Since 2013, Murphy has hosted a variety of shows on the British digital radio station BBC Radio 6 songs, including the Cillian Murphy’s Limited Edition series where he shares and analyzes his favorite songs. He referred to Liam Neeson as his “surrogate movie dad” when he introduced fellow Irish actors Colin Farrell, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, and Neeson as friends in 2005. His closest relationships, meanwhile, were formed prior to becoming well-known.
Prior to exploring his atheism for his 2007 film Sunshine part as a physicist and astronaut, Murphy, who was raised as a Roman Catholic, was on the verge of agnosticism. He said that his Catholic faith continued to influence his conduct in 2019. For almost 15 years, he was a vegetarian, a choice he claimed to have made more out of “worry about getting mad cow disease” than out of any moral obligation. He also objected to unethical agriculture methods. To acquire weight for his role in Peaky Blinders, he started eating meat once more. He likes to run.

He did, however, pursue a career in music, performing alongside his brother in a number of bands and singing and playing the guitar. The Beatles and Frank Zappa were references in the band name The Sons of Mr. Greengenes, which the couple chose.
They were offered a record deal with Acid Jazz Records for five albums, but they turned it down. Murphy later said that, looking back, he was glad they didn’t. He enrolled in University College Cork’s law program in 1996 but dropped out after failing his first-year exams to concentrate on his band.
