Cillian Murphy’s Lookalike Son, Aran, Gets Part in Taika Waititi’s New Movie, Alongside “Wednesday” Star Jenna Ortega
It appears that there’s a rising star in the Murphy family, as Cillian Murphy’s son, Aran, is gearing up for his debut on the silver screen in the highly anticipated movie “Klara and The Sun.”
Aran Murphy is one of the two sons of Murphy, the Oscar-nominated “Oppenheimer” star, and his wife, visual artist Yvonne McGuinness. Aran’s older brother, Malachy, is 18 years old. The family currently resides in Dublin, having moved there from London several years ago.
At just 16 years old, Aran, who bears a striking resemblance to his famous father, is making waves in Hollywood, following in the footsteps of his esteemed father, who has achieved great success in the industry.
The young talent has snagged a role in “Thor” director Taika Waititi’s upcoming movie adaptation of Kazuo Ishiguro’s dystopian sci-fi masterpiece of the same name, ranking at #3 on the New York Times Best Sellers Hardcover Fiction List. The film promises to be a cinematic marvel!
The cast features A-list actors, including Jenna Ortega from “Wednesday” and Amy Adams from “Enchanted.” Ortega will take on the role of a solar-powered ‘Artificial Friend’ purchased by Amy Adams’ character to accompany her sick teenage daughter, Josie, portrayed by Mia Tharia. Aran Murphy is set to play Rick, Josie’s close friend and neighbor.
This opportunity marks a significant milestone in Aran’s acting journey, although he’s no stranger to the stage, having previously showcased his talents in the play “Hamnet” at Dublin’s prestigious Abbey Theatre. His father, Cillian Murphy, couldn’t be prouder of his son’s achievements, as evident from his heartfelt words during a recent Best Actor acceptance speech at the Globes. Cillian referred to himself as “the luckiest man” while addressing his wife and children directly.
As Aran prepares to make his mark in the world of cinema, it’s clear that talent runs deep in the Murphy family, and audiences eagerly anticipate witnessing his stellar performance on the big screen.
