Jamie Dornan Opens Up About the Impact of 'Fifty Shades of Grey' on His Career

Jamie Dornan sometimes still struggles with the idea that he might always be remembered as Christian Grey.

The 36-year-old actor recently opened up about the lasting impact of his role in Fifty Shades.

“Sometimes and I struggle with that. I might be fighting this my entire career. I hope not. You just want to keep trying to improve yourself and better yourself,” Jamie explained to Deadline about being recognized solely for his character and not himself.

Despite the downside to starring in such a notorious film franchise, Jamie says the benefits have outweighed the negatives.

“Listen, I think it’s given me so much beyond finance-wise, I mean that opportunity to then do the movies that we’re talking about like Anthropoid and A Private War, movies like that have so much heart and mean so much to me. I would not have been given those opportunities if I hadn’t done Fifty Shades,” Jamie concluded.

    He is definitely more than FSOG. It launched him in the States but his best talents are out of that series.
