Speaking to Red Magazine recently, he explained: “I try to keep that stuff private. It’s just for us.”

Murphy also said he “loves” his normal home life with his wife and kids and spoke about how “lucky” he was.

He said: “For me, it’s about being at home and living a life. Taking the dog for a walk, doing the shopping, emptying the dishwasher, going for a run.

“I want to do good work and do it well, but then be at home. I love hanging out with my children, seeing how they behave and stealing ideas off them. After kids, the desire to improve as an actor remains but time becomes hugely important.”
