When the coronavirus pandemic hit the United States, Jamie Dornan was in New York, about to shoot a new TV series.

But as production shut down on “Dr. Death,” the 37-year-old actor flew back to his home in England, where he’s been in self-isolation with his wife and three children.

Dornan, the star of the “Fifty Shades” franchise, recently joined Instagram, posting a funny video with his face covered in blue paint for an upcoming role — a leap for a normally private person. This week, he’s been getting ready for the release of his latest film, “Endings, Beginnings,” a drama directed by Drake Doremus, which debuted at last fall’s Toronto Film Festival.

In the movie, Dornan plays an Irish writer smitten by a woman (Shailene Woodley) that both he and his best friend (Sebastian Stan) meet at a party. “Endings, Beginnings” is now available in homes on digital.

Since starring as Christian Grey in “Fifty Shades of Grey,” Dornan has zig-zagged as an actor, choosing character parts in independent movies such as “Anthropoid” and “A Private War.” And he’s psyched about his first major comedic turn in “Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar,” a comedy written by and starring Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo.

Dornan spoke to Variety about “Endings, Beginnings,” which was largely improvised, and why he wasn’t typecast after “Fifty Shades.”

How did Drake Doremus first approach you for “Endings, Beginnings?”
I love Drake’s work. We were at the same agency so his name popped out a few times. And then we ended up doing an advert together. I did this Hugo Boss campaign, like a perfume campaign, and Drake directed it. We went to Azerbaijan four days before Christmas a few years ago, and we just hit it off. We were very much aligned in our thinking and approach to art, but also to golf. He’s a big golf fan.

And we were like, “it’s great to do this commercial and everyone’s getting paid and it’s a beautiful piece of work, but it’d be great to do a real movie together.” We played golf when I was in L.A. and became friends. He was always saying he had this project that he had in mind for me.

Please be aware that there is a slight spoiler that if you haven’t read other articles about the film you may not already know about

From co-writer/director Drake Doremus, the relationship drama Endings, Beginnings follows Daphne (Shailene Woodley), a 30-something woman navigating love and heartbreak while also exploring what she wants out of life. After finding herself attracted to best friends Jack (Jamie Dornan) and Frank (Sebastian Stan), for very different reasons, she ends up on a journey that will teach her more about herself than she ever could have expected.

During this 1-on-1 phone interview with Collider, actor Jamie Dornan talked about the experience of improvising his role for the length of the film, how he thought about running for the hills on the first night of the shoot, having a filmmaker like Drake Doremus to guide him, the love on set, what surprised him about his character, and what he thought of the way the finished film turned out. He also talked about how excited he is for people to see his first foray into comedy with Barb and Star go to Vista Del Mar, with Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo, how he came to voice a character in Trolls World Tour, and what he’s looking forward to with his next project, Dr. Death, once he gets to shoot it.

Collider: It seems as though doing a film like this, where you essentially have a detailed outline and you’re improvising, would be equal parts exciting and terrifying for an actor. When this project came your way and you thought about that aspect of it, what was that internal back and forth like for you?

JAMIE DORNAN: Truthfully, the first night that we were shooting, I thought about running away, like running for the hills. I was just so frightened. I was so scared. I felt so at ease with the people, but then, I just thought about having to improvise. I’d done a little bit of improv before, in various realms, but never for a whole movie. There was also something about improvising and it not being comedy. Usually, it leads towards making people laugh. It was about doing it in a way that was truthful for the character and truthful in the response to who you’re in scenes with. Having not done it on that scale before, it was purely terror, at the front of my mind. It was only that first night, and then you find a rhythm with it. I found Jack’s voice within myself, fairly quickly, and then it was a joyous experience. I loved it. But, it was that first night. There was a 60-page skeleton script, where it would say, “Jack talks about why this happened.” And then, it was for us to make it up, on our own. For the first couple of takes, I said every single word that was in that skeleton script. I just said every suggested thing, and then (director) Drake Doremus came over, straight away, and was like, “Okay, forget everything in the script. You have to find your take.” I was like, “Oh, shit, okay.” That’s when I nearly ran for the hills

Now that you’ve seen the finished film, how different did this turn out from what you thought it might be, when you started? Because you really did get to explore this in a way that you don’t usually with a film, did it feel like the movie that you thought it would be, or did it feel very different, in any way?

DORNAN: I’ve never watched a movie before, where I had no idea what was gonna happen. There were so many ways in which we performed every scene. It could have been edited so many different directions, so that was an interesting thing to watch, for the first time. I feel like it definitely has as much love and hope and spirit as was in that skeleton script and the conversations that I had with Drake, very early on, and all of the feelings that we had on set, with Shailene [Woodley] and I and Sebastian [Stan]. There was a lot of love on that set. It felt like we were all in this mad experience together, and I feel like that did come across. So much of that is Shailene Woodley. It was so incredible to watch her do her thing. There’s not a second in the movie that she’s not it. It quite literally is just her. She’s carrying this whole thing, and it’s a lot. Emotionally, there’s a lot going on, and there’s so much going on in her character’s story. I thought the way she handled that quite beautifully ended up being portrayed in the final film. I was very aware, when I was doing those scenes with her, how beautiful her work was, and I think that came across in the final cut of it

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few weeks, due to the impact of Coronavirus, more and more events, businesses and films have had to be cancelled/rescheduled. This has unfortunately impacted on Trolls release next month which means it won’t be in cinemas as planned. Dreamworks have announced that it will be releasing a number of titles on VOD for families to rent on demand with Trolls included in the lineup with the view of releasing it once the worst of the pandemic is over. More information about it can be read below via an official source. The status of Barb and Star is not yet known but hopefully by July, things may start returning to normal

It also looks like per Millie’s Instagram, that Dr Death and Carmen production has had to temperoraily close down meaning they’ve likely left New York for home with a view to return when it is safe to do so. This hasn’t been officially confirmed but it looks to be the case

With movie theaters in the New York Tri-State area and Los Angeles closing and total box office reaching previously unheard of lows in the face of the coronavirus pandemic, NBCUniversal has decided to shatter the long-guarded theatrical window, at least for now.

The company announced plans on Monday to release a number of its newest films—including The Hunt, which stumbled badly over the weekend in its debut frame, and pre-coronavirus hit The Invisible Man—to on-demand services as soon as Friday, with rentals costing consumers $19.99 and lasting for 48 hours. The forthcoming Trolls World Tour, which remains set for theatrical release on April 10 despite theater closing and occupancy restrictions around mass gatherings in a push for social distancing, will also receive a simultaneous digital rollout next month
