what happened to the former actors of the series? (PICTURES)

Friday, June 10 marked a day of remembrance. And for good reason, it marked the launch of the sixth and final season of Peaky Blinders on Netflix. This final confrontation before bidding farewell to the Shelby family should be full of twists and turns, since season 6 of the series, already broadcast on the player of the English channel BBC, broke records when it was released. According to data collected by the English site Digital Spy, the reality tv show The Apprentice as well as the series Peaky Blinders and The Tourist are the three programs that have enabled the BBC platform to reach streaming records this year. In all, there are 1.83 billion views counted! If some of you already know all the twists and twists thanks to online articles, others preferred to wait to discover the new episodes without getting spoiled. And for that, we respect you. The events that occurred in season 5 of Peaky Blinders are perhaps a bit vague, here is a recap that should prepare you for what’s next. For now, it’s time to pay tribute to all the actors who contributed to the success of the series. What has become of the former actors of Peaky Blinders, since their departure from the British series inspired by a true story ?

Grace Shelby (Annabelle Wallis), Danny Whizz-Bang (Samuel Edward-Cook)… In which projects can you find the interpreters of the former Shelby allies?

Annabelle Wallis lent her features to Grace Shelby, a spy initially against the Peaky Blinders clan. Eventually, after succumbing to the charm of Thomas Shelby (Cillian Murphy), she becomes pregnant by the mobster and gives birth to Charles Shelby. Grace Shelby was unfortunately killed in season 3 of the series. Since then, her interpreter has not been idle: she lent her features to Alice Gustafson in The Silencing and embodied Zora in season 3 of star trek discovery. Annabelle Wallis also starred in Warning, silent night, Malignant or Boss Level.

What about Samuel Edward-Cook, behind the character of Danny Whizz-Bang? This former member of Thomas Shelby’s troop during the First World War saved Tommy’s life during this period and for that, we will always be grateful to him. His character died in season 1 of the series, the actor therefore had time to shine in other projects. The actor notably appeared in season 1 of Beowulf: Return to the Shieldlandsthe first burst ofInnocent and of Pureor The Gallows Pole.

How the interpreter of John Shelby (Joe Cole) bounced back beautifully after Peaky Blinders

As for the inimitable Joe Cole as John Shelby, you can imagine how much his role as John Shelby in Peaky Blinders opened doors for him. After bidding farewell to his character, the actor played Eye on Juliet as well as in season 4 of BlackMirror. Like his former partner, he also landed a role in Season 1 of Purethen in that ofUnsaid stories. Among his two biggest roles since Peaky BlindersJoe Cole was cast in the title role ofHarry Palmer – The Ipcress File and played Iver Iversen in lost in the arctic on Netflix. Since his departure from Peaky Blinders, Joe Cole addressed some criticism to Cillian Murphy, the hero of the series.

What becomes of Sam Neill, the interpreter of one of the most hated characters of Peaky Blinders, Chester Campbell?

Tommy’s main rival in the early days of Peaky Blinders, Chester Campbell was among the most hated characters by fans of the series. This is why they jumped for joy when Polly (Helen McCrory to whom season 6 paid a moving tribute), whom the police officer had raped a few episodes earlier, murdered him at the end of season 2. Regarding Sam Neill , the interpreter for the Chief Inspector of the Irish Police, he didn’t wait Peaky Blinders to make a name. After season 2, it is therefore natural that he was chosen in Agatha Christie: Ten Little Negroes as General John MacArthur. Sam Neill also lent his features to Odin in Thor: Ragnarokreleased in 2017 and will play the fake Odin in Thor: Love and Thunder, scheduled to hit theaters on July 13. For now, Sam Neill is starring in Jurassic World: The World After in the role Alan Grant. The unforgettable hero of Jurassic Park continue his great career!
