Handsome 6’4” actor Shane Quigley Murphy told the Sunday World it was only in recent years that he grew into his looks.

“I didn’t grow up a good-looking dude,” Shane said. “I spent my youth and my teens quite heavy, so it’s interesting to come full circle in my 30s.”

After going to the gym regularly and watching his diet he said he managed to change his body for the better.

“It was a mix of things,” he said. “I think I went in and out of fads of trying it, but the secret unfortunately is just hard work and consistency, just doing a little quite often for the last year and a half.

“During Covid especially I started looking after myself a little better, and just looking after the body has really looked after everything else. It kept my mind sharp, it made me a little more commercially viable and it just keeps me in a much happier place all the time as well.”
