The Part Of Peaky Blinders That Cillian Murphy Absolutely Hates

Though Tommy Shelby (Cillian Murphy) is not the oldest in the family, he is definitely the most intimidating. Fans know Tommy as being cold, calculating, and sometimes downright cruel, which is enough to make anyone cower in fear. Though his ice-blue eyes do the job, his build plays a major part as well. To become the fearsome head of the family, Murphy had to follow a strict diet and fitness routine. 

For someone who is physically slim, getting to the best size for Tommy was rather difficult. “For the first series of ‘Peaky Blinders,’ they were anxious that I shouldn’t look like a skinny Irish fella, and my trainer recommended meat,” Murphy told Mr. Porter Magazine in 2017. Having been a vegetarian for the past 15 years — a choice Murphy made because he was “worried about getting mad cow disease” — taking up meat again must have been a struggle. 

In addition to changing his diet, Murphy had to undergo several physical regimes to get to the ideal size for his “Peaky Blinders” role. The gradual process was frustrating, he revealed to Radio Times (via Express UK)  earlier this year. “I have to eat a lot of protein and lift a lot of weights and do all that stuff,” Murphy said. “So that takes a while, which I hate.” 

Though bringing Tommy to life was a demanding job, the results were effective. Murphy managed to perfectly transform himself into a terrifying figure who no one would want to cross.
