During his growing up years, Eamon’s folks moved a lot and when he just turned six, they relocated very close to the Gold Coast and decided to put down roots in the region. Consequently, the movie star spent a better part of his formative years there and according to him, they were memorable days.

Describing his happy and colorful childhood in an interview session, Eamon Farren narrated how he enjoyed great beach night parties by the water and while partying, they will be entertained with sweet music. Those beach get-togethers obviously formed a huge chunk of the actor’s childhood memories as he has constantly referred to them, describing the parties as the best he ever witnessed.

He graduated from the National Institute of Dramatic Art

The young Eamon had always desired to end up in the movie industry, according to the film and TV actor, he started telling family and friends about his intention to join the movie world from an early stage. Even when he was advised to get a plan “B” by the side, Eamon never took any of the counsel seriously as he had all his mind focused on becoming an actor.

Thus, when he started going to school, the movie star did so with the intention of honing his natural prowess in the performing arts. While in Queensland attending the Benowa State High School, Eamon Farren went for the institution’s French Immersion Program where the students receive a good number of their lessons in French.

To fulfill his long-held dream of becoming a movie star, the actor proceeded to NIDA (the National Institute of Dramatic Art) where he studied for an acting degree, graduating in 2007. The youngster was just 22 at the time of his graduation and ready to move fully into the moving movie world with determination to succeed.

Is Eamon Farren related to Cillian Murphy?

It was once rumored that Eamon Farren and Cillian Murphy (Cillian acted as Thomas Shelby in the Peaky Blinders series) have blood ties. The talks about their possible family ties were sparked by their uncanny resemblance to each other. However, the speculations were found to be unfounded after both confirmed that they were not related in any way.

It was just a rare case of coming in contact with one’s doppelganger and since fans have finally come to terms with the fact that the celebrity duo has no family connections, they finally let the matter rest. Albeit, they are still recommending movie makers to take advantage and produce a script that will accommodate the two look-alike actors.
