Jamie Dornan: Fifty Shades of Grey fame is a burden
Jamie Dornan has described his 'Fifty Shades of Grey' fame is a burden.
The 34-year-old actor plays alluring sex-obsessed billionaire Christian Grey in the erotic movie and the sequels, but the Irish heartthrob admits the circus surrounding the franchise - based on E. L. James' books - can be a headache.
Speaking on UK TV show 'This Morning', he said: "It can be (a burden), but that's just one job ... to me or any actor that is involved in any franchise, it is just another job and you move on to the next thing."
Dornan - who is married to English actress and singer/songwriter Amelia Warner, with whom he has two daughters - also discussed his journey to acting and claims he always knew he was destined for the life of a thespian because he didn't have the "temperament" or the "attitude" to work in an office.
He said: "I wasn't a great student at school. When I was at school I was very lazy, it felt like I was there for different reasons than education in a way - I always knew I didn't have the right attitude and temperament to work in an office environment."
Dornan can currently be seen in biographical World War II thriller 'Anthropoid', and despite the historical nature of his role, he confessed that history "wouldn't have been where my attention was heading" at school.
The revelation of Dornan's exasperation with his 'Fifty Shades...' fame comes shortly after he admitted he was done with the character now he has filmed sequels 'Fifty Shades Darker' and 'Fifty Shades Freed' and wouldn't be returning for a potential fourth film.
He previously said: "We have done two movies back to back now, and I'm actually finished with it. I've done 'Fifty Shades...' forever.
"I move on very fast in my mind. As much as from the outside people think you are synonymous with one character, but I'm very much like, 'Right, that's done,' and move on to the next project and worry about that character."
