Seattle male is Jamie Dornan’s double in Fifty Shades
May 24, 2016 - Fifty Shades of Grey
Fans spent months dissecting and debating a casting of Christian Grey, though his double transient a spotlight. Until now.
“I can happily gloat that my father is in Fifty Shades of Grey,” Barbara Terzieff said, laughing.
She and her father Alex work Seattle Stunt Company.
They met years ago on a set of HBO’s miniseries Band of Brothers.
The Ballard local has worked as a performer in films and radio for some-more than 15 years.
But he had no thought what he was removing into when he told his mother he’d sealed on for Fifty Shades.
“He said, ‘I usually got a pushing pursuit subsequent week,'” she recalls. “‘Great, what’s it for?’ (she asked.) And Alex says, ‘Something called Fifty Shades of… we don’t know.’ And we said, ‘Could it be Fifty Shades of Grey?’ And he pronounced ‘Yeah, that sounds right. Do we know what that is?’ And we said, ‘Why don’t we Google it?'”
For a record, a usually movement Alex engages in on-screen is pushing a quick automobile around Seattle. But even that tiny purpose has lead to media exposure, like an essay in a New York Post.
“Honestly, it’s been a tiny insane,” Barbara said. “Stunt performers don’t typically get any attention.”
It’s a pointer of a movie’s huge strech – and an critical credit for a Hollywood stuntman whose home bottom is Seattle.
“I’m unapproachable of him for each plan that we works on, either it’s large or small,” Barbara said. “I’m unapproachable of him for everything.”
