Peaky Blinders' Daryl McCormack addresses possible return for movie
The BAFTA nominee played Isaiah Jesus in the final two seasons of the hit BBC drama.
Peaky Blinders star Daryl McCormack has addressed the possibility of a potential return for the upcoming movie spin-off – explaining that he's not yet sure if he'll be reprising his role as Isaiah Jesus on the big screen.
Speaking exclusively to RadioTimes.com following his nomination for the EE Rising Star Award at this weekend's BAFTA Film Awards, the actor was asked if there had been any word from show boss Steven Knight about his potential return.
"It's something I haven't actually heard about," he replied. "I've been asked multiple times but I've yet to hear any news with regards to that."
While it remains to be seen if Isaiah will play a part in the film, McCormack said that appearing in the show had been "great" – especially playing a part in the final run, having initially joined the cast for season 5 in 2019.
"I was so grateful to be able to be involved in such an iconic show before it finished," he said. "And to come back for a second season as well really made me feel like I could really own my part within it."

He added: "It was really fun and it's really formative for me, growing in confidence to step onto a bigger show and to be able to hold my own within it, but they were so welcoming and amazing.
"And I love dressing up as a gangster playing boys being unruly and stuff. It's very simple, it does kind of tap into your inner boy!"
