3 incredible minutes of Cillian rehearsing Peacock’s John Skillpa. If you haven’t watched yet, it’s such a treat. Cillian’s completely lost in the character. Then about half way through he slips out of character to ask a question, and you remember it’s actually Cillian and he’s acting.
Thanks Anon, you’re right this def needed to be on the blog. :)
For Cillian’s birthday I thought I’d celebrate one of the up-sides of actor obsessions. One way or another he’s caused me to read this little lot, so thanks for the ‘cultural injection’ Cillian and Happy Birthday!
This is beautiful! Cillian also inspired me to watch a bunch of new stuff, discover a lot of great music and read some interesting books!!
Many happy returns, my love!
Today Cillian turns 38.
Cillian as John Skillpa in Peacock. Director Michael Lander explained the brown contact lenses: “Cillian was open to my ideas like making his blue eyes brown. His blue eyes, I call them his superpower. So we took away his superpower, making the two characters as unidentifiable as possible.” #flashbackfriday
