Sam Claflin is Joining Peaky Blinders, So Excuse Me While I Go and Have a Little Lie Down
The BBC drama Peaky Blinders is set to return for its fifth season soon, and a whole bunch of new cast members have been announced. Not content with getting hearts fluttering with the return of Cillian Murphy's Tommy Shelby, this season the show is adding yet another of our favourite actors, Sam Claflin. The Hunger Games star joins a long list of big names who've taken roles in the show, including Tom Hardy, Adrian Brody, and Game of Thrones star Aidan Gillen.
Also joining the cast are Anya Taylor-Joy, Emmett Scanlan, Neil Maskell, Kate Dickie, Cosmo Jarvis, and Brian Gleeson, who may have revealed a slight plot spoiler when he told the Telegraph that he was "looking forward to kicking around in the mud of Northern England with an exceptional cast and crew." Was his "northern" reference alluding to a move from Birmingham on screen, or just referencing the fact that a lot of the Midlands-set show is actually filmed in Liverpool and Manchester? Only time will tell, but as we impatiently away the return of the dark, stylish, and beautifully-shot show, find out more about the stars who'll be joining the Shelby family on screen.
