Biography

Largely unknown until 2013, actor Jamie Dornan was thrust into the spotlight when he was cast as the male lead in the major movie adaptation of the hit erotic novel Fifty Shades of Grey. A native of the Belfast area, the handsome Northern Irishman pursued acting after briefly attending university, while also working as a model and performing in a band called Sons of Jim. In 2008, Dornan found his first lead role in the horror movie "Beyond the Rave," but he mostly remained under the radar until he was cast in the dual role of Sheriff Graham and the Huntsman on the fantastical TV series "Once Upon a Time" (ABC, 2011- ). While occasionally appearing on the hit show, he joined Gillian Anderson for the Belfast-set psychological drama "The Fall" (BBC, 2013- ). As word of the well-received series gradually expanded beyond the United Kingdom, his role as Christian Grey in "Fifty Shades of Grey" was announced, immediately making him a subject of intense international interest.
