Jamie Dornan Reveals If Playing Christian Grey Caused Hollywood to Typecast Him

Jamie Dornan made a virtual appearance on the British television show This Morning and gave an extensive interview!

At one point during the interview, the 38-year-old actor was asked if he feels like playing Christian Grey in the Fifty Shades of Grey films caused Hollywood to typecast him in similar roles.

“;What”;s great about it and the success it had is that they”;re so unique, it”;s very hard to be typecast as someone like that because there”;s no one like him really, there”;s not been other movies about characters like him, so it was such a one-off in that the books, the movies and the trilogy, was its own thing,”; Jamie told the hosts. “;Everything I”;ve done since has been a million miles from it.”

In addition, Jamie talked about how he thought he’d be more of a comedic actor when he started in the business…and then he landed the role of serial killer Paul Spector in The Fall.

“;I always thought I”;d do comedy early on [in my career],”; Jamie said. “;And then I played a psychopath and nobody really thought of me in a comedic way. So I”;ve been trying to get back to that a wee bit.”;
