In one photo, Cillian stared into the mirror sporting Tommy’s usual sullen expression and sophisticated clothing.  

He looked suave in a black waist coat and matching dark trousers, which he covered with a long dark trench coat.  

The actor was also dressed in a smart white shirt and blue tie, and his pocket watch could be seen protruding through the buttons.

A second snap gave fans a better look at the fancy detailing on the neck of the coat as rows of clothes were visible in the background. 

The actor’s eye-catching hairstyle, which is normally shaved at the back and longer on top, was covered by his signature flat cap.  

The snaps were posted to the Peaky Blinders Instagram, which has 4.3million followers, and were captioned: ‘Behind the scenes with Cillian Murphy on #PeakyBlinders series 6’. 

The sixth series will pick up where the fifth series left off on 7 December 1929, the morning after a rally led by Oswald Mosley.

TV star Sam Clafin, 34, was recently seen on set for the first time since producers confirmed he’ll be making his return as the politician.

Last month, Peaky Blinders revealed Oswald’s fate in a tweet: ‘Sam Claflin returns as Oswald Mosley in #PeakyBlinders series 6.’

The Hunger Games star played the fascist leader, who rose to fame in the 1920s as a Member of Parliament and later in the 1930s, having become disillusioned with mainstream politics.

The final tweaks were made to the Manchester-based sets in February after the cast had been filming in Scotland.

The locations, however, are portraying Birmingham – the actual setting of the hit gangster drama.

Peaky Blinders centres around its eponymous gang which is run by the ruthless Tommy and his family, and sees them build their power and influence over Birmingham and beyond. 

The fifth season ended on a cliffhanger, with Tommy seeing visions of his late wife Grace (Annabelle Wallis) and turning a gun on himself following his botched assassination attempt of the British Union of Fascists leader.

Production on the show was delayed last year by the Covid-19 crisis, but shooting was able to begin last month with cast and crew adhering to strict coronavirus restrictions.

The BBC drama has been running for eight years and has enjoyed huge popularity but the sixth season has been confirmed as the final one, with creator Steven Knight confirming the story will return ‘in another form’.
