Jamie Dornan was in lockdown with his family when he received a fan letter that was more than a little creepy. The star of the “Fifty Shades of Grey” movies was sent “a collage of photographs of a kid,” with a note about his most famous role. “Someone saying that it was my kid, and my wife should know that I have this kid who’s 7 years old,” Dornan, 38, says over a Zoom call. He squints to absorb the weirdness of this allegation. “I think they were trying to say that the kid was mine and Dakota Johnson’s, and we’d had this baby while we made the first ‘Fifty Shades’ movie,” Dornan says. “It piqued our interest, let’s say. It was a bit freaky.”

Dornan learned all about freaky things when he suited up as Christian Grey, the sexually adventurous businessman based on the E.L. James books that became a cultural phenomenon. The first “Fifty Shades of Grey” film, released in 2015, catapulted Dornan from a character actor (best known for the BBC TV series “The Fall,” in which he played a serial killer) into a movie star. Next came two sequels, which concluded in 2018 with the cheesy “Fifty Shades Freed,” set in the newlywed days of Christian and Anastasia’s relationship. The snarky reviews didn’t keep fans from flocking to theaters: Overall, the trilogy grossed a whopping $1.3 billion at the worldwide box office for Universal Pictures.

Since then, Dornan has pivoted. Outside of a supporting turn in 2018’s “Robin Hood,”the Irish actor hasn’t gravitated toward studio material. “I love the energy of independent film,” Dornan says. “I love that sort of kick, frolic, scramble-to-the-finish-line every day, and you can take liberties and everyone’s in it together.” He especially appreciates the camaraderie with the crew on a small set. “No one’s getting paid what they have been paid, and we have to make this work,” he says. “It brings out the best in people.”

Today Jamie is celebrating his 38th birthday and despite the situation all of us currently find ourselves in at the moment, I’m sure he will have a wonderful day. To mark this, I have added 4 gorgeous previously unseen outtakes taken at TIFF in 2019 for Variety

A brand new shoot that was taken during the Hugo Boss promotion in Amsterdam back in November has been released today, which was accompanied by a new interview. The full thing can be read below the cut and the photoshoot can be accessed by clicking on the images below

Jamie Dornan tells Louise Wise why pushing boundaries is part of his DNA
The Risk-Taker

The day I meet Jamie Dornan, the Northern Irish actor admits he did a personality test online that very morning, for fun. “The test said, ‘Are you someone who likes to take risks?’ And I ticked ‘Strongly agree’,” says the Belfast-bred 37 year old. He didn’t even have to hesitate. “I feel like I’ve probably always been like that. Not in some sort of reckless way. But I guess I’ve always liked testing boundaries a little bit.”
That is one way to put it. In the three mega-successful Fifty Shades movies, adaptations of E.L. James’ erotic novels, Dornan set hearts a-flutter and knees a-knocking as the infamous Christian Grey. In the BBC’s hit series The Fall, meanwhile, he was even more unsettling as a worryingly sympathetic serial killer. And in 2020 we’ll see him pushing more limits, admittedly in a different vein. In one upcoming film, he has to improvise most of his dialogue; in another, he tries out comedy. Both are scary firsts for him. And then there’s that unexpected cameo in.. Trolls World Tour.

“I kind of asked to be in that,” laughs Dornan, straight after his photoshoot for EDITION – he has an easy, jokey manner which immediately balances out the fact that he is, let’s face it, intimidatingly handsome. The reasons for the request aren’t hard to find: he has three young daughters who are “just obsessed” with all things Troll, and he knew he’d get brownie points back home to star in this animated movie sequel. “I was like: ‘I’ll do anything. I don’t even need a line!” (To be clear, though, he does have some – as Chaz, a “troll who loves jazz”.)

If Trolls may seem the unlikeliest addition to his CV, it is also very Dornan: unpretentious, down-to-earth, and ultimately family-minded. Also, he knows by now to trust his instincts. Over the past decade he has steadily carved out a career in film and television, after making that tricky transition from being one of the world’s most sought-after models. He still does modelling work selectively, becoming the face of BOSS The Scent last year, but he focuses primarily on acting (other acclaimed film credits include Marie Antoinette, Anthropoid and A Private War).
“I like people who are a bit more linear and direct and know what they want,” he says, describing why he ultimately prefers acting. Modelling can be fun, he says – and he’s always sure to thank those who helped him on his way – but “you know, long conversations about your hair being ‘sexy, but smart – but not too smart and not too sexy…?'”. He opens his eyes wide. “There’s just a lot of faffing about, which I struggle with.”

Jamie Dornan’s PR team insisted on reading all the questions first, so we wrote something together, half of which was then canceled: whether he liked the screen, whether it was an advantage, the colleagues already know when shooting, whether he would like to play a superhero, if he had voice lessons, what he thought of his voice – everything seems to pick delicate topics, but we did not care, because we do not work with prepared questions anyway. As soon as we had Jamie Dornan on the phone, he told us unasked that he had just become a father for a third time, his wife, the film composer Amelia Warner, had a concert the night before, he was still in London because actually live the family yes, two hours outside. Born in 1982 in Belfast, Dornan started his career in the early nineties as a model, appearing in campaigns by Dior Homme, Dolce & Gabbana, and Calvin Klein, and was sometimes referred to as “the golden torso” or as a masculine response to Kate Moss. About his then girlfriend Keira Knightley he came to acting and was in 2006 in Sofia Coppola’s “Marie Antoinette” first seen in the cinema. In the great series “The Fall” he played a woman murderer and a billionaire inclined to bondage games in “Fifty Shades of Grey”.

It is only Jamies first day in Toronto and we have already been thoroughly spoilt in terms of how many studio portraits have been released. He was on the press route today for Synchronic, which is the first of two films to premiere at this years festival. He was joined by co-producers and writers, Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead and co stars Ally Ioannides and Anthony Mackie, who like Jamie, was there to promote two films. They can all be found in the gallery with some of the sessions thanks to my friend Kaci ♡

The images from Jamies shoot with Esquire Spain have been added to the gallery and will be replaced if and when possible. An excerpt from the interview can be read below and it has been translated as best as possible. The rest of it can be read using the link here

Jamie Dornan walks through the studio, a little uncomfortable, while a dozen people prepare the details of the photo session. Costumes, makeup, spotlights … It does not seem to matter much about that. I would even swear I saw him yawn. Soon after you will recognize that he does not like being a model. But let’s not get ahead.

We are in London’s Street Studios, it’s three in the afternoon and Dornan’s coffee has not arrived yet. It does not matter, the show must continue. When the camera focuses on him, he looks back with intensity, seriousness, honoring who represents the new campaign of The Scent, Hugo Boss: a man sure of himself, irresistible, seductive. However, when he interacts with people, he does so with shy smiles and calm gestures. It costs to see in him to that iconic Christian Grey of expensive suits and red whips that spent the afternoons of Saturday practicing sado previous contract. “I’m quite different from him, in almost every possible way,” he says, and he does not lie.
