As we all know, Harry Kirton and Alfie Evans-Meese have been cast to play Finn Shelby in Cillian Murphy’s upcoming television series. Although, who could blame them for wanting two major stars on board? In fact, most people aren’t even sure who will be playing Thomas Shelby in Martin Scorsese’s sixth collaboration with Cillian Murphy. At least now that all of our worries about casting are over, we can stop obsessing over it for awhile (or maybe not…it does sound pretty cool). For those of you that don’t know too much about Harry or Alfie (I mean come on…who doesn’t?!), here’s a quick rundown: Harry was born and raised in South London; his father is English and his mother is French.
Well here we are, at long last. In my opinion, season four of Peaky Blinders was its best yet. With plenty of return characters (and returning actors), we’re set for a rollercoaster ride that sees Cillian Murphy’s Tommy in total control once again—and taking his place among Birmingham’s elite. As most fans will have seen, there was another main character joining up in series four: Finn Shelby. But just who is Finn?
If you haven’t guessed from both clips above (don’t worry, only one is real), it won’t be too much of a spoiler to say that Finn is indeed played by both Alfie Evans-Meese and Harry Kirton.
Connections With Season 4
Finn is related to Grace, who seems to become Mrs. Shelby in season 4. In addition, Finn and Tommy share a love for horses. Also, it was revealed that Tommy’s father was also killed by a horse kick. In season 1 of Peaky Blinders, Tommy got his nickname Tommy after being kicked by a horse while working on his father’s farm.
It has been confirmed that Harry Kirton will play the role of Finn Shelby alongside Alfie Evans-Meese as Liam and Joe Cole as John in Season 4 of Peaky Blinders!
Peaky Blinders is a Birmingham gang in 1919, headed by Tommy Shelby (Cillian Murphy). They are named for their practice of sewing razor blades into the peaks of their caps. Because they often back winners and know how to run odds, they are frequently sought out by wealthy bettors. The basis for Peaky Blinders comes from a Birmingham gang known as ‘The Peaky Blinders’ who had become notorious through Europe and America at that time.
Spoilers For S4
It was announced today that Alfie Evan-Meese and Harry Kirton will be joining upcoming season of BBC’s Peaky Blinders. Before we get into who they are and their roles on set, let’s first answer your most burning question: what happened to Cillian Murphy?! Murphy, as you know, played Thomas Shelby in seasons 1 through 3 of Peaky Blinders. In an interview with Empire, producers discussed how fans won’t see Cillian Murphy at all in season 4: He’s not in it, said EP Jamie Glazebrook. It’s not a betrayal [of his character], it just makes sense. How does it make sense?
