Cillian Murphy undoubtedly made Thomas Shelby as one of the greatest characters that have ever been created in TV history!

My favorite line that really stuck with me is “Everyone is a whore, Grace. We just sell different parts of ourselves”

No one ever talked about Arthur's actor. He did a brilliant job in portraying his character.

Cillian deserved an award for his Thomas Shelby. He made the character

Author — Morgan Hobson


Thomas once said: “I know what this is…It’s just myself talking to myself about myself.” Epic line!

He has never won an Emmy for this character. That alone will tell you what BS these award shows are. He is bloody brilliant and this show is spectacular.

This was the best series to hit our screens in decades. Whoever chose Nick Cave's 'Red Right Hand' couldn't have picked a better theme. It's genius.

"I have no limitations."

Probably the greatest line I have ever heard a character say.

Author — Gregor


Cillian is such a humble guy. He absolutely brought that character to life like no one else probably could have. Can't wait for the movie!

To me the most beautiful line was also probably one of the saddest. When Grace sings for Tommy in the pub.
She says: Happy or sad?
Tommy: sad
Grace: okay, but I warn you, I'll break your heart.
Tommy: already broken

Peaky Blinders was probably one the best shows I have ever seen. Amazing actors, amazing lines and story. And an amazing cinematography 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

Its hard to express how much tommy shelby has effected every individual who has seen the show. His intelligence, will to win, never give up in the face of a crisis. Cillian murphy has cemented his legacy as tommy shelby for years to come. We are lucky to witness such a show in our times.

Cillian did a “calm app” story, and the comments from women everywhere were hysterical.
Cillian is such a beautiful and understated actor, can’t wait for his next role.

I can't imagine anyone playing Thomas Shelby other than him, he is a great actor!

Best show ever hands down. Tommy Shelby character is genius. Deserves a Grammy. No one else could play this part. Murphy IS Tommy Shelby.
