Irish Star Dornan Lands Fifty Shades Of Grey Role

Northern Irish actor Jamie Dornan is set to be cast in the lead role of the Fifty Shades Of Grey film.

The film will serve as an adaptation of EL James’ book, which has sold more than 70 million copies worldwide and is the fastest-selling paperback of all time.

Former Calvin Klein model Dornan has seen his stock rise in recent years as he added a number of acting credits to his name, with his lead role as serial killer Paul Spector in The Fall among the best he is known for.

31 year old Dornan will feature as Christian Grey, the lead man in the erotic sadomasochistic romance novel that tracks the relationship between a college graduate and a young business magnate. Dornan replaces Charlie Hunnam in the lead role after the Green Street star dropped out.

Hunnam’s departure came just one month after it was revealed he had taken the part.

It is believed the Sons of Anarchy star decided to drop out of the project because he was worried about overwhelming huge media coverage although the official reason states it is due to other acting commitments.

Dakota Johnson will star alongside County Down native Dornan as she plays female lead Anastasia Steele in the film, which will be directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson.

It is due to be released next year.
