See You in the Next Life

Company’s okay, solitude is bliss
There’s a party in my head and no one is invited
November 05 2013
I’m a character actor, at least, they’re the sort of roles that I’m most interested in. If they also happen to be the leading man occasionally, that’s fine, but I’m not interested in getting the girl, or saving the day, in the traditional leading man sense. You very rarely get interesting stories coming out of that. And part of my desire to do my job well means not being a celebrity. I would be crap at it anyway—red carpets just make me nervous. But even if I could handle all that, I don’t think I want to be popping up in the morning papers, waving to the crowd at some premiere. The less people know about Cillian Murphy the easier it is for me to do my job.
