Jamie Dornan Stars With Ann Skelly In Irish Drama 'Death & Nightingales' - Watch The Trailer!

Jamie Dornan runs into Ann Skelly in the Irish countryside in the dramatic trailer for their new mini-series, Death and Nightingales.

The three part limited series, based on the novel from Eugene McCabe, is a “riveting story of love, betrayal, deception and revenge, set in the haunting countryside of 1885 Fermanagh, Northern Ireland.”

Death and Nightingales takes place over a desperately tense 24-hour period, it’s Beth Winters’ (Skelly) 23rd birthday – the day she has decided to join the charming Liam Ward (Dornan) and escape from her limited life and difficult Protestant landowner stepfather Billy (Matthew Rhys).

As decades of pain and betrayal build to a devastating climax, Death and Nightingales is a powerful and gripping drama that follows a woman struggling to control her own destiny and will illuminate tensions that tear both families and nations apart.

Death and Nightingales is expected to debut on May 16.

Ann is currently starring on this HBO Max fantasy series.

Jamie Dornan Belts Shirtless in 'Edgar's Prayer' Music Video - Watch!

Jamie Dornan is bringing the drama!

The 38-year-old actor supplied a thoroughly silly music video for an equally silly song from Barb & Star Go to Vista Del Mar called “Edgar’s Prayer,” which premiered over the weekend.

In the video, Jamie dramatically climbs a palm tree, performing ballet and singing to the sky shirtless at the beach.

Seagulls in the sand can you hear my prayer? I keep trying but I’m getting nowhere,” he dramatically sings.

He recently opened up about a possibility of a sequel to the funny movie, as well as how many shirts he ripped off on set.

Jamie Dornan's Dad Jim Dies From COVID-19

Jamie Dornan‘s father Jim Dornan, a renowned obstetrician and professor, has reportedly died from Coronavirus at the age of 73.

A fellow professor, Nichola Rooney, confirmed the sad news on Twitter and the news was then re-posted by Northern Ireland’s Leukaemia & Lymphoma society.

“Very sad news this morning on the passing of Professor Jim Dornan, a passionate patron, advocate and friend to all at @LAL_NI. Jim was champion for so many small charities and causes in NI and that legacy will live on. Condolences to family and friends at this sad time,” Leukaemia & Lymphoma tweeted.

The BBC also confirmed his death.

Jim had been diagnosed with lymphocytic leukemia in 2005 and worked closely with the society after recovering.

Our thoughts are with Jamie‘s family during this difficult time.

Jamie Dornan Reveals What He Sings In The Shower & It's Not What You'd Expect

Jamie Dornan is opening up about his go-to song to sing in the shower and it’s not what you’d expect.

The 38-year-old actor appeared on The Drew Barrymore Show with his Barb & Star co-stars Kristin Wiig and Annie Mumolo, when during the break, Drew asked him about the songs he sings in the shower.

“Oh God, oh, no, no, no, don’t say it,” Jamie tried to deflect, but admitted that he gets “very musical.”

He then revealed that his is “Sand, Stephen Sondheim…It’s sad, I like to start my day with total sadness and build from there.”

In an interview with Slate, director Karen Han opened up about being really impressed with Jamie‘s singing voice and confirmed that yes, it is him singing in the movie.

“He’s got a pretty incredible voice, which I think, when we wrote it and cast it, I didn’t even know. I figured, ‘Oh, we’ll probably have someone else sing,’” she shared. “I didn’t know he had a wonderful voice.”

“But we started talking more and more, and he was in a band in high school, and it was like, ‘Oh, he can really pull this off.’”

If you didn’t see, Jamie recently opened up about that shirt ripping scene in the movie too.

Jamie Dornan Says The Shirt Ripping Scene in 'Barb & Star' Isn't That Easy To Do

Jamie Dornan is opening up about that shirt ripping scene in his new movie, Barb & Star Go To Vista Del Mar, and revealed that it wasn’t as easy as it looked.

The 38-year-old actor told Vulture that “the embarrassing thing was half the time I couldn’t even rip it!”

Jamie added that he had “asked the costumer to cut it at the top so it would be easier to rip it, but I guess they didn’t cut the bottom, so for the first take I was really confident at the beginning, and then I got like a second in and got stuck at the bottom, so I was sort trying to hop out of it in a pathetic way.”

“But then we did two or three more takes where they cut the bottom so I could actually make it work.”

Jamie stars as Edgar Paget in the film, opposite Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo.

If you missed it, Kristen actually used the movie to reveal her twin babies names!

Jamie Dornan Talks 'Barb & Star' Sequel Possibility & How Many Shirts He Ripped Off

Jamie Dornan is opening up about his role in the critically praised comedy Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar and if he’d be open to doing a sequel.

The 38-year-old actor chatted with Variety about getting to show off his comedic chops in the movie and that big musical number.

If you’ve seen the movie, which is available now on VOD, you know that Jamie rips his shirt off at one point. See it happen in the GIF below.

“We did that just two, maybe three times. And the first time it didn’t rip it all,” Jamie said. “I’m sure that footage will find its way onto some sort of blooper reel. So we had to like, cut it so I could rip it. Listen, even Hulk Hogan apparently cuts it at the top. So if Hulk Hogan needs help with ripping a shirt off, I definitely need help. I don’t even think I get ever got it off of the bottom.”

Jamie also discussed the possibility of a sequel.

“That’s a Mumolo/Wiig question,” he said, referring to the film’s writers and stars Annie Mumolo and Kristen Wiig. “I was hopeful that they weren’t gonna just turn and kill Edgar at some point towards the end. Because I was like, if this hits and people like it, there’s an appetite… I think they’ve definitely knocked around a few titles, let’s put it that way. We all had a bit of fun one day, coming up with destinations for for them to go on after. So listen, if they want to go again, and they want me to be involved, it would be the easiest yes of my life.”

Find out if that’s actually Jamie doing the singing and dancing!

Is Jamie Dornan Really Singing & Dancing in 'Barb & Star'? Director Speaks Out!

Jamie Dornan has a big musical moment in the new movie Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar and fans might be wondering if that’s actually him doing the singing and dancing on screen.

The movie’s director Josh Greenbaum opened up to Slate about working with Jamie and how much of that scene needed a double.

“It’s almost all him other than when we make it obvious that it’s not. All the singing is him. He’s got a pretty incredible voice, which I think, when we wrote it and cast it, I didn’t even know. I figured, ‘Oh, we’ll probably have someone else sing.’ I didn’t know he had a wonderful voice,” Josh said. “But we started talking more and more, and he was in a band in high school, and it was like, ‘Oh, he can really pull this off.’”

Josh added, “And then the dancing, obviously he’s fully committed. There are a couple of sequences, like when he’s spinning like a baby ballerina and digging himself into the sand, that are obviously doubled. Again, I hope it comes across as clear that part of the joke is it’s clearly not him, but if so, I’m sorry for ruining it for people that’s not him. He’s clearly doing the bulk of the funny tumbling and jumping. But when there’s beautiful, full-split ballet moves, I hate to tell the world, but that’s actually not Jamie.”
