In an interview with Variety, main man Cillian Murphy said, “I think this is the highlight of the show which hopefully improves on the last season and makes the most recent the richer and deeper as possible.”
The 45-year-old Irish actor, who plays gang leader Tommy Shelby, explained that since the tragic loss of actress Helen McRory last year, actors are “determined” to make him “special”.
He continued: “Partly because of all the pandemic shit going on in the world and of course the really sad loss of [Helen] McCrory.’

He explained that the show works to “honor” Helen and hopes the show will “live up to her memory”.
Cillian added, “His presence and his character’s presence is still felt on the show, and it’s really been part of Tommy’s journey through the season.” It will be different without her, you know. It just won’t be the same.
It comes as fans of the show praise the sixth season opener for its handling of Helen’s death.
