Jamie Dornan Says '50 Shades' Role Puts Him in a 'Nice Position'

Jamie DornanNo doubt that being cast as Christian Grey has already changed Jamie Dornan’s life. The Fifty Shades of Grey star has practically become a household name, given the wild popularity of the books and the excited anticipation of fans to see their favorite bad boy come to life on screen.

Dornan recently stopped by The Graham Norton Show on BBC America to talk about his iconic role and speculate on whether or not it will change his life even more when the film is released on Valentine’s Day 2015. “I don’t know,” the modest actor replied. He later added, “It’s a nice position to be in.”


Taking a brief time-out to fan myself.

OK, I’m back. Did he really just say that? Why yes, yes he did. Of course he’s probably talking about in terms of professionally, but in my head he’s talking about something entirely different. Wink, wink.

I mean, look, we're in a really powerful position that 90-plus million people have read the book so if like a third—I mean, a hundredth of those people—that's successful if they go see the film. It's a nice position to be in, but I have no idea what it's gonna do.

It’s going to make you very, very popular, Mr. Dornan.

Do you think that playing Christian Grey is going to be a professional boon for Jamie Dornan?
