Cillian Murphy

Ireland's Cillian Murphy, 27, hops from the horror hit 28 Days Later to Intermission, a new comedy.

ON COMPARISONS TO INTERMISSION COSTAR AND PAL COLIN FARRELL We were living in Dublin when we started off, and we started going out drinking. I'm proud of what he's done, but I don't consider myself the next anybody. I haven't established myself as me. How could I be anybody else?

ON 28 DAYS' SURPRISE SUCCESS People were feeling anxious: Sept. 11, SARS, air rage. Audiences understood it as a zombie film and also that it was dealing with other issues.

ON HOW TO THROW UP ONSCREEN Cold soup. And you have the obligatory diced carrot in there. You have it in your mouth, and then you don't.

ON DECORATING FROM THE DUMPSTER Not all my flat is furnished secondhand. The washing machine is new. I locked myself out twice lifting it up the stairs.
