Cillian Murphy has revealed he recorded Birmingham pub-goers to perfect his accent in Peaky Blinders.
The Irish actor who plays Tommy Shelby, says he had a meeting with the show's creator Steven Knight at the Garrison pub, where he recorded the chatting and songs of locals.
Speaking to Radio Times the Irish man said: "I hung out with Steve, and we went to the actual Garrison pub in Birmingham with his Brummie mates.
"And we're just drinking Guinness there, and they're singing Birmingham City songs and telling all sorts of stories, and I was recording on my iPhone, and then I took that home, and used it to try and track the accents, you know.
"And then I would call Steve and just leave voicemails on his phone in the accent and see how close I was to it."
