Jamie Dornan Opens Up About Filming in Nice During Bastille Day Attack

Jamie Dornan is opening up about filming the Fifty Shades movies in Nice, France amid the horrific terror attacks that took place there on Bastille Day.

The cast and crew were all confirmed safe after a car ran into a large group of people, killing 84 and injuring over 100.

“It was, as you can imagine, a bloody awful situation,” Jamie told ComingSoon.net. “You’d be affected by it wherever you were in the world. Most of the cast and crew were actually staying in Monaco so there’s a little bit of distance there, but my family and I wanted a little bit more space so we were actually staying in Nice. The first thing that everyone has to work out was is everybody safe, is the whole crew and cast safe. Then you have the strange thing of the next day still trying to make this movie that’s costing millions of dollars to put together. There’s this contractual obligation to work the next day, which is a very strange environment to work in. It felt very frivolous and wrong to be making something as silly as a f**king movie the day after something like that happened.”
