The interview started by talking about his movie A Quiet Place.

He opened up that he was not part of A Quiet Place part one and he said that he went to watch the first part in the theatre and was so amazed by the movie that he wanted to be part of that. 

So he went home and thought of mailing to John Krasinski and he composed the email saying that he liked the movie. 

But he didn't have the guts to send that email to John as he felt embarrassed. 

Luckily a year later John approached to him and he received the mail from John

When he got that mail from John he was shocked and but was happy that he didn't mail him at first.

He shared that he prefers spending more time with his family rather than working. According to Cillian one of the best experience while working was when he did shooting in his hometown. 

He shot his movie The Wind That Shakes the Barley in his hometown and the thing that he liked shooting in his hometown was being able to spend time with his wife. 

His wife was pregnant with their first child and he was around her which made it his best experience.
