Peaky Blinders Season 6

Peaky Blinders will last to flow without the late Helen McCrory who passed away last Friday. But, the staff is recalling their beloved star in a very special way. Filming of season six of their much-adored crime drama is now underway and the team paid a heartwarming tribute to Helen who starred as Elizabeth’Polly’ Gray for its first five seasons.

Peaky Blinders’ season 6 manager Anthony Byrne took to Instagram to share a photo of their clapperboard which has been designed by Manchester tattoo artist Lauren Marie Sutton. The photo shows Helen’s character look is drawn on the center of the clapperboard using the words’Rest In Peace Helen’.

Anthony captioned, “Today was amazing and strange and sad and surreal. We found ourselves in the most beautiful atmosphere. The sun beating down on us and it felt alright. It was amazing but not surprising to read the many tributes and articles devoted to Helen over the weekend. This is our ‘A’ camera plank and Polly Gray is in front of our cameras. This board was created by @lo_marie_s a super talented tattoo artist at Manchester. It’s meant a huge amount to me along with the team on Peaky to have a picture of Helen on set with us every day. Due to @francesca. Caterina for marking up the clapper board such as that.”

Helen, that was also famous for enjoying Narcissa Malfoy in the Harry Potter movies, passed away at age 52 after a long struggle with cancer. McCrory was married to fellow actor Damian Lewis.
