I was a skinny guy growing up, and I still feel like that same skinny kid”. “I think was so much more to Christian that we covered,” Dornan said, talking about his preparations with director Sam Taylor-Johnson. “Someone who is careful to keep himself in shape, someone who spends obscene amounts of money on presenting himself.”
“A lot of that work was done in the gym and with costume,” he said. “We didn’t talk about particulars of the way he would move. But I’m quite awkward in a suit because I don’t have an opportunity to wear a suit very often, and this is a guy who lives in a suit — the best suit”. “But when you end up in a suit for 80% of the filming process, you become pretty comfortable with it,” he added. Earlier, Jamie Dornan told The Guardian that the hype surrounding the upcoming movie is getting out of hand. “It’s just all a bit silly the way it works. I think I could lose my mind,” he said, adding that the amount of attention he’s getting by portraying Christian Grey is “ridiculous.”
The 32-year-old actor also told Mag interviewer, that he enjoyed playing the characters with two side. “Even Christian has two side,” he said. ‘Come to think of it, he has 50”. “ I think I’m going to be using that line all over the planet in a few months,” he added. “shouldn’t waste it”. Fifty Shades star Jamie Dornan was hesitant at first to accept the role of Christian Grey for fear of being typecast. The New York Daily News said that he’s hoping to get some roles in future that don’t involve denigrating women.

Another bitterly added: “Hey Bafta why in the world didn’t you give that award to Jamie Dornan? I hope you have nightmares where Paul Spector is chasing you.”
The Fall, written by Allan Cubitt, was nominated in the Best Mini Series category, but it missed out to In The Flesh. Jamie Dornan’s co-star in The Fall, Gillian Anderson, surprisingly missed out on a Leading Actress nomination. She was unable to attend the event due to work commitments.

Sadly Jamie didn’t win BAFTA award, but he’s a winner in our eyes and always will be… to be nominated for a BAFTA in the first place is huge and there will be lot more opportunities in the future for Jamie. Jamie Dornan will next be starring in the highly anticipated movie Fifty Shades of Grey written by E.L. James opposite Dakota Johnson, who plays the role of Anastasia Steele. The 32-year-old actor plays the role of Christian Grey, who is a successful businessman and has a kinky secret. For the most-awaited part, Jamie Dornan will be seen gracing silver screens as Fifty Shades hits theatres on Feb. 13, 2015.
From the time when the first Fifty Shades… movie footage aired for lucky few at CinemaCon in Las Vegas there’s been worries that the movie won’t live up to the hot and saucy nature of E.L James novel. The first teaser footage left fans with little disappointment as the first scene focused more on Christian’s and Ana’s love story than their bedroom antics. The film’s star Dakota Johnson insists fan don’t need to worry though. Even though rumors have also been flying that the movie will not have all the memorable scenes from the book. We’ve yet to see trailers of the movie Fifty Shades of Grey so it’s difficult to say how Sam Taylor director of the movie will bring the bestselling novel to the big screen.
Dakota Johnson, the actress who stars opposite Jamie Dornan in the film walked the red carpet at a Calvin Klein event in Singapore was asked about the movie Fifty Shades. She was kind enough not to reveal too much about the movie. She did tell press on the red carpet: “Everything is a little bit secret but I can tell you that I think people will be pleased with the movie, hopefully!” Dakota opted to elaborate on what truly drove her to accept the challenge of portraying Anastasia Steele “I’m doing this movie because I love it and I believe in the story and I believe in the books and I hope that I will do them justice”, she adds. And it sounds like whatever rating the movie gets, it will be too much for Dakota’s famous parents, Hollywood stars Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith. The actress insists that “no, they won’t be watching the movie – not with my permission.”Anyway, I don’t think the movie is something that my parents would want to see!”
Judging her on screen Ana from what she revealed, it sounds like the movie’s going to satisfy a lot of desires … and as though it already has satisfied Dakota. And she made it clear that disclosing too many details about the movie is a no-no.
Wow, well, as much as fans have worried that Dakota Johnson was never the right casting choice for Anastasia Steele, you’ve got to respect that the actress feels so strongly about it. Sounds like she knows just how much she had to live up to and made sure to live up to it and make it believable and the flick a hit.
