Murphy turns atheist after work on sci-fi thriller28/03/2007 - 09:47:42
Irish actor Cillian Murphy has lost his faith in God after working on new sci-fi thriller Sunshine.
Murphy, who heads up the annihilation of the sun in the Danny Boyle-directed movie, spent time with a number of scientists to prepare for the role - and ended up losing any belief in a higher power.
He says: "I was agnostic before this film. Now I'm very much an athiest.
"Not just because I spent time with these guys - they just confirmed what I'd always suspected.
"For me, the film ultimately is a battle between science and religion, or science instead of fundamentalism."
