Cillian Murphy for So It Goes magazine [2014]

"The thing that peaked my interest in acting was originally theatre, it wasn’t film — I was interested in film but it never seemed like a possibility — whereas theatre did. I was very lucky in that I got to work with great theatre companies and directors in Ireland, and work on great material very quickly. It was the only training ground I knew. The classic way of playing small parts, then playing slightly bigger parts." [x]

“Follow the writing,” is the simple rule of thumb for actor Cillian Murphy when it comes to deciding what roles to choose. And that is regardless of whether the medium is film, TV or theatre.
Cillian is currently rehearsing for the Galway production of Enda Walsh’s new play, Ballyturk, alongside fellow cast members Stephen Rea and Mikel Murfi. The play, also directed by Enda Walsh, will open at Galway International Arts Festival next month and is sold out. It’s the latest collaboration between long-time friends Enda and Cillian.
“I was lucky as a kid to meet Enda, and he gave me my first big role,” says Cillian, referring to Disco Pigs, the 1996 play that announced Enda Walsh’s arrival as a dramatist to be reckoned with. Since that Corcadorca production, the two have worked together on other projects, most notably the 2011 hit, Misterman.

I am always interested by people in jeopardy, situations where the stakes are raised. I’ve always liked the idea of the everyday man in extraordinary situations. ~ Cillian Murphy, So It Goes.

If you’re into a grumpy grungy ginger-scruffed Cillian and who isn’t, then Aloft is going to be your kind of film! A new 3 minute clip featuring Cillian and Melanie Laurent posted at the link. (X)

After I made this gif I realized it almost looks like he’s being given an endless amount of glasses. After a while you’d think he’d get frustrated, like, “Dammit, I asked for a glass of water, not a million. Fuck, stop. I’m running out of places to put these. Where the hell are you even getting them from?”

Cillian explains why he loves doing theatre in the new issue of So It Goes magazine (photo from Misterman in NY, 2011) 

What I love about theatre is the sort of implausibility of it, the absurdity of it: at any point it could all go terribly wrong. Someone forgets their lines or the lights break, the curtain doesn’t go up, somebody in the audience misbehaves. I like that, I love the fragility of live performance.
