“I mean, if we want to watch 50-year-old Tommy Shelby, I will be there. Let’s do it.”
On his much-heralded depiction of Oppenheimer in Christopher Nolan’s epic movie, Murphy said he realised the portrayal “would be ultimately a synthesis of the script, all the stuff that I was absorbing of him, and then an element of yourself in it. And then you put it all in the mix and that becomes Chris’s version and my version of Oppenheimer.”
The Irish actor said he said he had learned to enjoy awards season, something he hadn’t always felt in the past.
He reflected: “But you can choose to enjoy it. You can make that alteration in your brain. Really, you would be an eejit not to enjoy it. Just go with it.”
