Jamie Dornan Talks Winning Christian Grey Role in 'Fifty Shades of Grey'

Jamie Dornan flew into the spotlight when he was cast as the replacement for Charlie Hunnam in Fifty Shades of Grey as Christian Grey, and now he’s telling the world how he feels about his new part.

“I certainly don’t fear it,” the 31-year-old actor told EW about winning the role. “I already got a glimpse into working with [director] Sam [Taylor-Johnson] at the test, and I’d met [co-star] Dakota [Johnson] by then. So I had a glimpse into how I felt it would be if I got the part. None of it scared me.”

“You know, one door closes, another opens,” Jamie continued. ”When he [Hunnam] dropped out, I didn’t instantly think, ‘Oh here we go, maybe I should cancel that holiday,’ but I did feel that maybe we’d revisit the idea of me.”

Adding about the new attention he’s receiving, “I’ve been around it before and it’s ugly, but I’m glad I’m 31 and not 21, and married. I feel very settled. I’m not running in and out of clubs at 5 a.m. anymore.”

    Hayden christensen should have gotten the role to get back in the public eye. Not the movies he has done so far. He needs to get back out there. Instead are hanging around la not audition for roles that would make him faous in the public eye. Instead are being notice for walking around
    Shopping. That is not getting him any decent roles at all
