Murphy directs Money music video

Cillian Murphy has directed a music video

Cillian Murphy has made his directorial debut - with a music video for Manchester group Money.

The Irish star admitted he decided to take the reins on the band's new single Hold Me Forever after being "knocked out" by the track, sung by Jamie Lee, Charlie Cocksedge, Billy Byron and Scott Beaman.

"Hold Me Forever knocked me out when I first heard it. It's a sublime mix of beautiful melody and arresting emotion - but uniquely it is not a love song," he said.

The video features dancers from the English National Ballet and was filmed at locations including The Old Vic Theatre in London.

Cillian, 37, said: "I wanted to try and match the song with images that were both visually elegant and powerful. For some reason ballet dancers kept coming into my head. The strength, commitment and fluidity of movement of the dancers seemed somehow to cut wonderfully to the song."

The 37-year-old, who reprised his role as Dr Jonathan Crane in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises, has been filming Wally Pfister's Transcendence, which also stars Johnny Depp and Rebecca Hall.

Ask colleagues and relatives for help with mundane errands while you focus on the long term financial future. If you don't protect your economic interests, nobody else will.More
