Jamie Dornan shot to stardom when he landed the role to bring Christian Grey to life on the big screen, but the actor has stated that he is nothing like his Fifty Shades character
Jamie Dornan is a household name, thanks in large part to his role in Fifty Shades of Grey. Dornan stars as Christian Grey, alongside Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele. Ana falls for Christian only to find out that he is really into BDSM. The Fifty Shades franchise is based off E. L. James' trilogy of novels and filming for the adaptations of Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed wrapped up not too long ago. Now with the sequel to Fifty Shades of Grey coming to cinemas in February fans can look forward to the start of promotional interviews and hopefully more promo videos like Fifty Shades Darker's first official trailer that foresees trials and tribulations for Christian and Ana.
In a recent interview with TV Week, Jamie Dornan revealed that he doesn't share the same inclination to kinky bedroom toys as his character Christian. The actor shared, “No, I’m not into that and my wife isn’t and I can’t believe I am talking about our sex life! It’s funny because obviously there is a huge market for it and there are a lot of people who are into a certain type of sex, but I am just not one of those people and it doesn’t interest me at all.” At first Ana shares Dornan's aversion to BDSM, however fans can expect to see her warm up to it in Fifty Shades Darker. Director James Foley even previewed Ana's more adventurous side in the upcoming film.
So Dornan shares no similarities in bedroom habits with Christian, and he is also extremely different to his character in British series The Fall in which he plays a serial killer. Speaking about his character Paul Spector, the actor said, "I’ve never been given such an opportunity to play a character that is so complex and so deep and so dark and so twisted and so psychotic and I’ve loved every minute of it!” Are you excited to see Jamie Dornan back in action as Christian Grey in Fifty Shades Darker?
