As the hit BBC show Peaky Blinders nears the end of its sixth and final series there has been drama and twists along the way from the death of Aunt Polly to Tommy Shelby being diagnosed with a brain tumour, which fans did not react well to. But now, as the series draws to a close, many fans are wondering where the youngest Shelby brother is.
Finn Shelby has been played by Harry Kirton since 2013 and in each series his role in the Shelby family and business has grown, leaving fans to wonder why he has been mysteriously left out of the sixth series so far. Many believe he will be making a return in the final two episodes.
We last saw Finn properly in series five when he unintentionally scuppered Tommy’s plans to assassinate Oswald Moseley.
Harry is 23-years-old and has starred in Peaky Blinders since the second series. He was born in Birmingham and alongside Peaky Blinders he has also appeared in the 2017 film We Can Be Heroes and the 2018 film 18. On his Instagram he also says he is a model and artist.

He has appeared on the cover of Icon magazine twice and was just 15 years old when he first appeared on the drama which has millions of fans across the world. Harry is also vegan and attended Bournville School where he starred in their production of Romeo and Juliet.
The 23-year-old is currently dating the model Apple Sershi and the pair attended the Peaky Blinders series six premiere together. Harry has said that he “can’t wait to move on” from Peaky Blinders as he doesn’t want to be pigeonholed into a role.
He told Digital Spy: “The love that I’ve had for Peaky, and what it’s given me, and what it’s taught me – with all due respect, I can’t wait to channel and start a new avenue in my acting. I want to try and do stuff that’s completely the opposite to Peaky.”
“For practical reasons as an actor, you don’t want to pigeonhole yourself. I don’t want to be doing Peaky until my mid-to-late 20s, just because I reckon in the future that would be a hindrance for me. But, still inside me, though, I would love to continue that story.”
Peaky Blinders continues on Sunday, March, 27 on BBC One at 9pm.
