Cillian Murphy was interviewed on the Ian Dempsey show:
Ian: And they’re all completely different, and they’re powerful performances… and Gavin Friday as well… I didn’t know he could act.
Cillian: He certainly can.
Ian: He’s a man for the future, I think.
Cillian: Big time. He was in Disco Pigs, actually, had a small part and I remember saying ‘God, this guy is fantastic’ and then Neil thought of casting him in that role and he just… eats it up, you know, he’s wonderful.
Ian: Ah, he’s out of this world, brilliant.
