The ultimate quiz on acclaimed actor Cillian Murphy

The Irish stage actor, Cillian Murphy, made his breakthrough in the film industry after Danny Boyle took a gamble on Murphy to cast him as the lead in the post-apocalyptic zombie film 28 Days. His big foray into Hollywood came when Christopher Nolan cast him as Jonathan Crane/Scarecrow in Batman Begins. However, he largely stayed away from the spotlight and continued to work in both film and theatre. He garnered critical acclaim for his role as a transgender in Breakfast on Pluto, and for the Irish civil war film, The Wind that Shakes the Barley.

Murphy would later essay one of the most iconic characters in television history for his portrayal of Thomas Shelby in the hit BBC gangster period-drama Peaky Blinders. He has also collaborated frequently with Christopher Nolan in films such as Inception and Dunkirk. He has slowly established himself as one of the finest actors of this generation.
