Happy 37th Birthday, Cillian Murphy

Cillian Murphy 37

He wanted to be a rock star
But he knew he will never be great at it
He went to a law school
But he found other passion

Unheard of and new to the world of acting
But they gave him a chance
A stage with only two actors
But he carried it across Europe for two years

Chased by zombies made him known
Attacking superhero in bat suit made him famous
Terrorizing a woman in a plane made him a great villain
But his real talent was not fully shown there

The beautiful transvestite
The calm doctor caught in a war to free Ireland
The shy man whose alter ego was a woman
The crazy man alone on stage for 90 minutes
Those were where his talent shines

His family is not to be exposed
Being in A-list star is not his target
L.A is not his destination
Acting is his job not his life style

He seeks new characters to play
In Independent movies
In blockbuster movies
In short films
In theatres
The characters not the money

He mesmerized me with his talent
He captured me with his beautiful blue eyes
He made me a Cillianiac

Happy 37th Birthday, Cillian Murphy.


Saturday has been the day where I shared a bit of creative writing and since Cillian’s birthday is on Saturday, I think a poem about him is the best way to celebrate his birthday ๐Ÿ™‚

Hope you’ll continue being the actor who cares more about the art than about being rich and famous.

  1. I think that Cillian looks about thirty
    two years old so he has a young face ๐Ÿ™‚
    I hope that your weekend is going
    very nicely my sweet and great friend ๐Ÿ™‚

    Andro xxxx

    • He aged gracefully…I think ๐Ÿ™‚
      There are times where he looks older and times where he looks younger, I think it depends on the characters he played.

      Sweet Weekend to you too Andro ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Thank you Miss. Novia
        and I hope that your weekend
        is filled with happiness ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

        Andro xxxx

  2. BTW –

    You have written this for
    his birthday, and I like it a lot ๐Ÿ™‚
    you are right about his
    blue eyes, they are stunningly
    blue my sweet friend ๐Ÿ™‚

    Andro xxxx

      • Yes well gorgeous isn’t a word that I would
        have used but then he is a handsome guy,
        for you ladies I mean ๐Ÿ™‚ lol

        Andro xxxx

        • Hahaha…Handsome is the word I used for Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock)…this Cillian defines the word gorgeous for me ๐Ÿ˜‰

          Ah…Andro, he can also be beautiful for gentlemen too ๐Ÿ˜‰ he has dressed as a woman twice and both are beautiful.

          • I once dressed up as a woman on a stag night, along with two of my friends and that was a really funny evening, of course it was all done in fun but tricky walking in those high heeled shoes, I don’t know how you girls manage it? ๐Ÿ˜‰ lol

            Andro xxxx

  3. WOW, what a great poem, I wish Cillian would read it. Happy Belated birthday, Cili! It’s amazing how youthful he still looks. Awesome post, Nov!

    • Thank you Ruth ๐Ÿ™‚
      I always try to make something special for his birthday … I sort of running out of idea for next year ๐Ÿ˜‰
      Well, he has more lines around his eyes now…but i still think he age gracefully.

    • Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚
      I have to start thinking for next year now because I have done personal letter, short story and now poem….I am tunning out of idea.

      I like your edit ๐Ÿ™‚ It makes me want to rewatch all his movies.

      Hahaha lines or without lines, he will still be my fav actor ๐Ÿ™‚

        • Am I a fan? Hahahaha would I WRITE a poem to him or make Monthly post if I am not a fan?
          I am practically the biggest fan he ever have in Indonesia. I go to the cinema even though he only appeared in the movie for 2 minutes. My students called me Cillianiac because I love that man a little too much.

          Sure ๐Ÿ™‚ always nice to meet another Cillian fan from Indonesia ๐Ÿ™‚

          • we’re kinda same. always go to cinema just to watch he act and my friends be like ‘why do you like Cillian? he’s creepy. try to like other actor.’ ohya does Cillian have twitter or facebook page or blog? I searched him on twitter but didn’t find the verified, and now I give up lol.

            Nice to meet Cillian fan like u, I thought I was the only one from Indonesia haha:D

          • Your friends obviously don’t know anything about good acting ๐Ÿ˜‰
            They need to see him in Breakfast on Pluto and Peacock.

            Nope! Cillian doesn’t want his life to be public therefore he has none of that.

            Hahaha so did I ๐Ÿ™‚
            At least Cillian knows he has fans in Indonesia because I told him I am from Indonesia when his fans around the world made an album of why we love him and gave it to him.

Say something so I know you have read my post, THANK YOU for reading :)
