Jamie Dornan Reveals If Playing Christian Grey Caused Hollywood to Typecast Him

Jamie Dornan made a virtual appearance on the British television show This Morning and gave an extensive interview!

At one point during the interview, the 38-year-old actor was asked if he feels like playing Christian Grey in the Fifty Shades of Grey films caused Hollywood to typecast him in similar roles.

“What’s great about it and the success it had is that they’re so unique, it’s very hard to be typecast as someone like that because there’s no one like him really, there’s not been other movies about characters like him, so it was such a one-off in that the books, the movies and the trilogy, was its own thing,” Jamie told the hosts. “Everything I’ve done since has been a million miles from it.”

In addition, Jamie talked about how he thought he’d be more of a comedic actor when he started in the business…and then he landed the role of serial killer Paul Spector in The Fall.

“I always thought I’d do comedy early on [in my career],” Jamie said. “And then I played a psychopath and nobody really thought of me in a comedic way. So I’ve been trying to get back to that a wee bit.”

Find out what Jamie once said about how he chooses his roles after playing Christian Grey.
