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