Peaky Blinders’ Finn Cole has teased the rift between Polly Gray and Tommy Shelby on the 6th season of Peaky Blinders.

One of the most jaw-dropping twists in the crime drama’s entire run occurred last season, when Polly (Helen McCrory) sided with her son Michael (Finn Cole) because Tommy aligned with fascist Oswald Mosley (Sam Claflin). (In the end, Tommy was actually setting up Mosely for a botched assassination plan.)
When Cole recently spoke to Digital Spy about his new thriller Dreamland, he also shared his thoughts on how Polly’s divided loyalties will factor into the upcoming episodes.
“Well, she might have a decision to make between the two of them,” he teased. “I mean, it’s tough. What impact could that have on the family? It’s so hard to talk about these types of things, even with my mates and family and my brother, Joe, still.
“They’ll ask every now and then about what’s going on in Peaky. It’s so hard to talk about it, or even predict what might happen, because even someone that’s on the inside like me – I can’t even predict what Steve [Knight’s] going to do, because his brain is so much more detailed and experienced and all those things.
“So I wouldn’t want to say, but I know that that’s going to be a great storyline, the sort of triangle between me, Tommy and Polly. I know that that’s going to be a fantastic storyline, and I can’t wait to get into it with those two.”
Cole’s new film Dreamland is in UK cinemas from Friday, December 11.
