Cobb: You’re waiting for a train. A train that will take you far away. You know where you hope the train will take you, but you can’t be sure. Yet it doesn’t matter. Now, tell me why?
Mal: Because we’ll be together!
What sort of person would Tommy be without his traumas?
"His Aunt Polly says in the first season that he wanted to work with horses and I think something like that, in that field… he’s such an ambitious and clever character that if it wasn’t for the criminal route he took it would be politics or business, but he’d still get to that goal. For him the criminal route seemed the most expedient. But once you get into the crim world it’s very difficult to get out of it." (a new Peaky Blinders 2 poster + a really interesting new interview with Cillian X)
Somebody needs a hug.
I miss those golden days.
They’re coming back!
This photo of Cillian (as Tommy Shelby with a very bruised face, ouch) is in the latest issue of Radio Times magazine, accompanied by an interview that made some headlines this week (Cillian stating that he’s opposed to livestreaming theatre productions :( ). Aside from talking about Peaky Blinders and hating on his haircut, what’s lovely about this interview is that you get a sense of how modest and gracious he really is. He apologies profusely for being 10 minutes late to the interview and for the occasional “fuck”. Also brushes aside a question about how he’d like to be described by people he’s worked with as “too narcissistic for me”.
