Paying tribute to Helen, the Irish actor revealed: ‘She was like the matriarch of Peaky Blinders, and I think my closest colleague on the show.’

He added: ‘She was without doubt one of the best actors I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with.’

Speaking to Today FM, Cillian went on: ‘But on top of that just an extraordinary human being. So it’s really really sad. And we’re all still dealing with it like everybody else, and we really miss her.’ 

Cillian also said that scenes shot alongside Helen were always ‘his favourite’.

Peaky Blinders centres around its eponymous gang which is run by the ruthless Tommy and his family, and sees them build their power and influence over Birmingham and beyond. 

It has been more than two years since season five aired its last episode, while the sixth series will pick up where the fifth series left off on 7 December 1929, the morning after a rally led by Oswald.

The fifth season ended on a cliffhanger, with Tommy seeing visions of his late wife Grace (Annabelle Wallis) and turning a gun on himself following his botched assassination attempt of the British Union of Fascists leader.

The sixth season of Peaky Blinders resumed filming in January after the show was forced to shut down set last March due to the coronavirus crisis.

The BBC show has been running for eight years and has enjoyed huge popularity but the sixth season has been confirmed as the final one, with creator Steven Knight confirming the story will return ‘in another form’.

Creator Steven Knight recently hinted Peaky Blinders could continue without Cillian’s pivotal character, telling Birmingham Live: ‘There may be worlds that are part of the Peaky world that are about someone else.’
