In what is no surprise to those of us who have followed Cillian's career for years, Cillian recently revealed to the press that his family comes first before his career. Always considering himself to be European, Cillian refuses to fall prey to the lure of Los Angeles and most blockbuster films, rather selectively choosing roles in high quality indie films that keep him close to his home base in London. You can read the rest of RTÉ ten's article here.
Along these lines, Cillian has signed on to play a ruthless gangster in a BBC2 television mini-series entitled Peaky Blinders. Booked as a period gangster drama, Cillian will be playing Tommy, the most ruthless brother in a family of gangsters. The drama is set in the slum neighborhoods of England in the year 1919, and is being written by Steven Knight who recently penned such TV shows as Eastern Promises and Dirty Pretty Things. Let's just hope that those of us in the states will get to view Cillian's leading turn in this series.
Thanks for the info, Bev!
