“Cillian’s such a wonderful actor, he’s great and what a lovable, lovable guy,” said Stephen.

“In that, Chris, where there were a few moments where I had to pinch myself a few times because I was sitting in a scene with him, rehearsing and all, and I was kind of like, ‘Ahh, this is Tommy Shelby! ‘“

“Fangirling” with each other

Hannah joked that Stephen and Cillian “dressed each other so badly with the fans” on set.

“He’s just an absolutely lovable guy and a phenomenal actor,” added Stephen.

When asked by host Chris if he was freaked out at all, Stephen said he had a method to contain his nervousness.

“Well, what I did was, I did it before they said action.

“I really looked around and then it was like ‘Okay boy, you better put your shoes on here and your shin guards, let’s get ready, let’s go on the pitch!’ But first [it was like], ‘Okay, oh wow!’ “

What can you see Stephen in next?

Despite rumors that Stephen would play infamous gangland boss Al Capone, a first picture from the show’s official Instagram feed shattered those speculations.

He was dressed in civilian clothes and looked a mile from the lavishly dressed American gangster Capone.

His character remains a mystery.
