Married for 28 years, and his youngest son follows in his footsteps. What is known about Cillian Murphy's family, who is up for an Oscar

What is known about Cillian Murphy's family: married for 28 years

Cillian Murphy, the Irish actor, star of "Oppenheimer", "The Hurt Locker", and a potential Oscar winner, rarely talks about his family, especially his wife, with whom he has been together for more than 28 years. With the love of his life, he has two sons, Malachi and Aaron, the younger of whom is already trying his hand at acting.

Cillian Murphy's relationship with the artist Yvonne McGuinness began back in 1996 on the set of Disco Pig, when they were both 20 years old. Earlier, in an interview with The Guardian, the actor spoke about the event that marked the beginning of their acquaintance: "She came with us on tour. It was so exciting – we were all just kids trying to find our way – but such a special time."

Yvonne McGuinness is an Irish creator who works in the field of video installations using "film, performance, sculptural and textile elements, sound and text."

Their romance lasted until 2004 when Murphy proposed, and the couple has been married for 28 years. They hid any information about the relationship for a long time, but in August 2024, at the Golden Globe Awards, he appeared with his wife in public for the first time in a long time.

Murphy even thanked her and her sons during his speech: "As I fail to do this too often, I want to thank my family. Two of the three of them are sitting down there. We had to leave one of them at home to take exams. But just thank you for putting up with me, putting up with half of me, my shadow, my absence, the remains of me when I'm doing movies like this [Oppenheimer] or working in general. You are always there for me. I love that. So thank you."

The two children are Malachi, 18, and Aron, 16. The youngest son chose to pursue an acting career and followed in his father's footsteps. In February of this year, he signed a contract with a movie studio, the Mirror reported. Soon, the young man will be seen in the movie "Clara and the Sun", an adaptation of Ishiguro Kazuo's novel directed by Taika Waititi. He will be accompanied by Jenna Ortega and Amy Adams.

Previously, Aran appeared in the movie "Lola" and in the touring play "Hamnet", where he played the main character.

Until 2015, the family lived in London, Great Britain, but that year everything changed, because the actor decided to return to his homeland, Ireland, to Dublin. He dreamed of his children calling themselves Irish. In an interview with The Guardians, Murphy said that the children were able to easily adapt to the accent: "I guess we wanted them to be Irish. It's amazing how quickly their accents adapted. Even within a year of returning, they disappear into this depraved West British style."
