“My mom is a brilliant, hugely bargain person,” explains Jamie Dornan.

And, it’s propitious for The Fall actor that his overwhelming partner and mom of his baby daughter, singer Amelia Warner, is so unequivocally bargain given Jamie’s raunchy on-screen antics in a second array of The Fall, that comes to a marvellous end this week.

Between restraining his teenage babysitter to a bed and slaughtering dim haired beauties in a passed of night, Jamie has spin one of a many talked about actors in a universe and, with a hotly expected Fifty Shades of Grey film set to be expelled early subsequent year, Mr Dornan has never been hotter.

The trailer for Fifty Shades has already damaged a record for a many hits – over 100 million viewpoint so distant – and in a matter of weeks Jamie is set to be catapulted into a A list when he brings famous sado-masochist Christian Grey to life on screen.

With a recover of this intensity blockbuster on Valentine’s Day, Jamie is about to take a jump into super-stardom, something he says he has usually been means to do with a assistance and support of Amelia, who he lovingly describes as “dream stuff.”


Jamie stepped into a purpose of Christian Grey after actor Charlie Hunnam forsaken out and was on set filming within days of signing on a dotted line, uprooting 8 months profound Amelia and bringing her with him to Canada where a film was being filmed.

He said: “My mom is a brilliant, hugely bargain person. Plus, she was an singer for 10 years so she’s wakeful of what it’s like.

“A lot of people would have had a sh** fit during 30 something weeks profound hearing, ‘Darling, we’re going to Vancouver this week for 4 months – we’re going to have a Canadian baby and I’m going to do a film where, for tools of it, we will be naked’. That’s a tough representation though my mom is an implausible person.”

And it’s Amelia who Jamie credits with branch his life around and assisting him make a mutation from jobbing actor/model to critical Hollywood contender.  

Before his breakthrough purpose as Paul Spector in The Fall, Jamie was one of a world’s top paid models. But, notwithstanding being dubbed a golden torso, and starring in campaigns with Eva Mendes and Kate Moss, Jamie found modelling to be unfulfilling and spent his giveaway time going on unconstrained rounds of “hundreds and hundreds of unsuccessful auditions.

He says: “I’ve never felt massively confident from station there while someone takes my photograph. It’s never given  me a thrill. It would take a unequivocally ridiculous male to spin down things that was offering to me.


“You’re in your 20s and people are going to give we a stupid volume of income to gaunt opposite a wall with your conduct down. F*** me, you’ve got to do it. If we hadn’t been paid to model, we would unequivocally have stopped. we spent so many years auditioning with zero to uncover for it.”

Jamie straightforwardly admits that there weren’t many directors queuing adult for ‘an actor who used to be a model, who never trained.’ At one indicate he was auditioning for “scores of dry sh** tools and not even removing them” — though final year he got lucky.

Having auditioned for The Fall to play a military officer, he was summoned behind from LA where he was unsuccessfully perplexing out for commander deteriorate and asked to try-out for torpedo Paul Spector.

A tiresome six-hour try-out valid that he was a right male for a purpose and his partial was cumulative in what would spin BBC2’s many watched strange play in scarcely a decade.

The Fall, he straightforwardly admits, has altered his life and was a reason he was expel in Fifty Shades. But, again he credits his family life and his purpose as a father in assisting him make a partial his own.

“In a box of Paul Spector, now that I’m a father we have some viewpoint on being a dad. His adore for his family is a categorical thing that humanises him in the  mind of a audiences and creates him most some-more an appealing figure than if he were simply a cold blooded killer. When he kills, it’s not sexual. He’s never cheated on his wife. There are dual poetic kids that he loves though thereafter there’s a night.


“You can’t destroy to be left somewhat scarred by carrying someone like that for dual series, we do lift elements of him with me and in a worrying approach we find him relatable. we contingency be clever how we contend this, though there are times where we shock myself. You do lift some of that annoy in we a small bit, for a few months afterwards.”

So as 2015 beckons, life is about to change dramatically for Jamie and his family though he says he doesn’t fear a attention.

“It’s easier to hoop a inspection when you’re comparison and you’ve lived a bit. I’ve already had my share of being followed by a paparazzi. It’s unequivocally hideous. The paparazzi are cretins. we couldn’t have reduction honour for those guys.”

But while most will change for Jamie, most will sojourn a same. He is still tighten to a pals he grew adult with in Holywood, Co Down.

“When we listened about removing a partial of Christian Grey, a crony of cave messaged me: ‘I listened about Fifty Shades. Congratulations on a role. That’s going to be disgusting. we won’t watch it!’”

 The Fall concludes on BBC2 this Thursday during 9pm
