Harry Kirton—who plays the role of Finn Shelby on British drama series Peaky Blinders—recently admitted that he still works at a vegan café. “I still do part-time work, you know, I like to keep in sync with the world that we live in because acting is a very … you know, you’re pretending a lot and your headspace is in this area and that,” Kirton told media outlet Metro. “I have a lot of passions that aren’t just acting. I like to write, I’m vegan, I’m working at a vegan café because I love what they’re doing. I want to eat good food, and I want to talk to people.” Kirton, who has been on the show since he was 15, also said his father helps keep him grounded so that his fame doesn’t get to his head. Season 5 of Peaky Blinders debuted on August 25.
