Recently performing on stage, Cillian Murphy is currently enjoying the recognition he is receiving during awards season. Nominated for the prestigious BAFTA and Oscar awards for Best Actor, his portrayal of the "father of the atomic bomb" has placed him among the top actors in Hollywood. Nevertheless, despite the glamour of the movie industry, Murphy may have a more meaningful connection to another type of stage: the world of live theatre.

Cillian Murphy More Nervous On Film Sets Than In Theatre

Cillian Murphy is an exceptional performer in Hollywood. He has starred in many significant motion pictures and TV shows, including Oppenheimer, Inception, and Peaky Blinders. Moreover, since the 1990s, he has participated in many theatre productions. During a recent chat on BBC Radio 4's Desert Island Discs, Murphy disclosed that he enjoys acting in theatres more than in films.

Cillian Murphy spoke on Desert Island Discs about the difference between working on a movie set and in a theatre. He explained that when performing in a play, you have the ability to control the outcome of the performance. If the show goes poorly one night, you can work on improving it for the next performance. However, in film, there is no fixing of mistakes once the footage is captured.

Although he is a talented actor, Cillian Murphy still feels nervous when he's acting. He thinks that making movies is even more stressful than performing on stage because there's less control and you can't fix mistakes once they've been recorded. If you mess up during a live show, you can always try again the next night, but with movies, everything is set in stone and will last for years.

Cillian Murphy Happy To Reprise Role As Thomas Shelby In Peaky Blinders

Murphy has been a well-known actor for many years, but he gained immense popularity for his role as Thomas Shelby in Peaky Blinders. The show has been running for almost ten years and Murphy has been a crucial part of all six seasons. Sadly, it was announced that the sixth season would be the final one. Nonetheless, Murphy hasn't dismissed the possibility of returning to play the role of the notorious British Crime Lord in the future.

"If there’s more tale to share, and if Stephen Knight produces a script that meets my expectations, then I'll certainly participate," said Cillian Murphy. He added, "I’m ready to play 50-year-old Tommy Shelby, so let's make it happen!" This statement was made on his appearance on the program Desert Island Discs.

It's uncertain whether Murphy will resume his role as Thomas Shelby. Right now, his supporters hope he will receive recognition for his exceptional performance by winning an Oscar or a BAFTA award. You can watch Peaky Blinders on Netflix.
