Cillian Murphy has admitted that working with Jamie Dornan on new World War II flick Anthropoid  became “intimate” at times.

The Irish actors star alongside each other in the film, where it seems they developed a close relationship from working on set together.

Peaky Blinders star Cillian Murphy said that himself and Dornan have gone on to stay friends, despite filming ending.

“Irish people don’t like talking fondly about other Irish people,” joked Murphy in an interview with Mashable.

“I’d say it like this,  you know you make a lot of films and you spend time with people and it gets quite intimate, it’s quite intense...but there are only some times when you stay friends, and this was one of those,” he said of his friendship with the 50 Shades of Grey actor.

It seems that the two lads had plenty of fun while filming in Prague, with Murphy saying: “We did a lot of messing on set.”

"If you were in that space all the time you would just lose your mind, so we did keep it light…there was good fun."

The pair also spoke about their favourite comfort foods, with Dornan’s being American candy Milk Duds and Murphy’s being popcorn.

"I like popcorn, but I like to put some tabasco sauce on the popcorn, like a lot," said the 40-year-old actor, to which Dornan replied, “You can take the boy out of Cork…”

Anthropoid is a World War II film based on the true story of two Czech soldiers sent to carry out the assassination of SS officer Reinhard Heydrich, Hitler’s third in command, which became known as Operation Anthropoid.
