Sir Daniel Day-Lewis the renowned British actor is set to play Slab Murphy in a Holywood blockbuster movie based on the veteran South Armagh Republican we can reveal.
Day-Lewis has played numerous Irish roles in the past but this one is set to be his most challenging to date.
We spoke with Day-Lewis and told Newry Spud:
“With all roles I like to immerse myself in the subject’s life. I’ve been living in south Armagh now for 4 months. It’s been challenging not having running water or electricity but I’m sure that’s how Slab Murphy lived his life too.”
