It's definitely a role that has the potential to define his career, but as it turns out, playing Christian Grey held Jamie Dornan back from reprising his role as Sheriff Graham on Once Upon a Time.
Well, I mean taking back the role in a brief way -- but one fans of the hit TV show definitely would have welcomed with open arms.
Actually, based on what Once Upon a Time producers had to say about their attempt to bring Jamie back for season three, it sounds like fans might be pretty upset that it never happened due to him filming the Fifty Shades of Grey movie.
Of writing Jamie into the season three story line, co-producer Eddy Kitsis told Access Hollywood, "Ask us that after the finale. And then we will tell you exactly what we wanted to do and then you will be so bummed that we didn’t get to do it, and then you will have the same look on your face that I do right now, which is sadness."
Gah. Who's curious now?!? (I know I would be if I watched Once Upon a Time. And now I kind of want to.)
While I'm sure Jamie's fans will still flock to see him on the big screen in Fifty Shades -- the news that the flick stopped him from coming back to the show could prove to be kind of a let down.
But who knows what can happen in the future? Considering how much producers wanted Jamie back, there's always the chance his flashback role could become a reality at some point.
Are you hoping Jamie returns to Once Upon a Time?
