Cillian Murphy can't be accused of losing his Cork accent now he's a big Hollywood star, but it's clear from this clip that he's had the edges knocked off it a bit over the years.

The clip, which features a 19-year-old Murphy waxing lyrical about acid jazz and his band The Sons of Mr Green Genes (a reference to a Frank Zappa song) is doing the rounds on Twitter.

He might be 41 years old but the Peaky Blinders and Dunkirk star hasn't aged a day.

And the clip is making some feel nostalgic:
