Peaky Blinders star Cillian Murphy has reached out to fans in a letter, read by season 5 and 6 director Anthony Byrne.
The letter comes after the sad news that the filming of season six has been postponed due to Covid-19.
In it, the Irish actor also thanks the crew for their patience and ponders what Tommy Shelby would be doing in the midst of a lockdown.
Read the letter in full below.
Hello everyone, sending love and fortitude to Peaky fans everywhere. We will be back as soon as we can, I promise… causing chaos and knocking heads as usual.
I wanna send a special thank you to all our wildly talented crew for all their hard work and their talent, and for their forbearance and patience during this time.
So I dunno about you guys but sometimes I wonder what Tommy Shelby would be doing in a quarantine…?
I really hope he would be busy writing volume one of his memoirs, “Tommy Shelby – The Pre-War Years.” That’s something I’d like to read.
And I think by now he is definitely cutting his own hair with his hat, while smoking a cigarette.
