Since wrapping Fifty Shades of Grey in Vancouver, Jamie Dornan has turned his attention to his BBC series The Fall. But that doesn't mean that he's ready to abandon playing Christian Grey for good!
Jamie recently spoke with U.K. website What's on TV about his current work. What he had to confess should definitely set Fifty Shades fans' minds at ease about whether or not the sexy Irish actor would reprise his role as the mercurial billionaire in Fifty Shades sequels ...
Jamie said of getting back into the twisted role of serial killer Paul Sector on The Fall:
I love it! It’s not easy being in that headspace for that amount of time, and it’s probably doing long-term damage! But I absolutely love being there -- I don’t know what that says about me!
HA. Well, well. If he "absolutely loves" being in Paul's headspace, I'm sure he has no problem being in Christian's. While Christian doesn't exactly kill anyone, he certainly has some similarities to Paul. And with Jamie getting such a kick out of portraying dark characters, I'd imagine he's right at home in Mr. Grey's suits.
Sounds like he also couldn't be happier to get back into a character he's already familiarized himself with playing. Thus, even more reason we can probably safely assume he'll enjoy playing Christian again in Fifty Shades Darker and Freed, right? Fingers crossed, because I have a feeling that despite any initial skepticism, once fans see Jamie on the big screen, they wouldn't dream of anyone else in the role.
Are you rooting for Jamie to sign on for Darker and Freed (if they're made)? How would you feel about another actor playing Christian in the sequels (like James Bond or Batman films)?
