Things Got Sweaty For Cillian Murphy On The Set Of Peaky Blinders Season 4
The costume design for "Peaky Blinders" is partly responsible for the show's growing popularity, and any creative endeavor that inspires men to actually want to dress better is always welcome. Cillian Murphy’s Tommy Shelby always looks well put together, but Murphy has admitted that it would sometimes get a little sweaty underneath all those clothes.
Tommy Shelby and the other hard-nosed gangsters in "Peaky Blinders" would look completely out of place sun-tanning on a Somerset beach, which is precisely why the seasons never seem to change. The series rarely shoots during summers, a fact that Murphy prefers, especially after he and the rest of the cast almost melted under the hot lights during Season 4.
Speaking to EW, Murphy said, "We normally shoot during the winter but we shot series 4 during the summer for some scheduling reasons and we were baking. All of us were just baking. We just skip that season in 'Peaky Blinders' land. It was difficult shooting because it's pure wool and layers of it. We like it nice and gloomy."
