Jamie Dornan may get recognized for being Christian Grey, but some don't even believe that it's really him!
Dornan is playing one of the most recognizable characters in cinema right now, Christian Grey in the Fifty Shades of Grey franchise. While millions of fans probably know every inch of Dornan's face (and perhaps even more), others simply don't think it's really him.
The actor spoke with Metro recently about getting recognized more for Christian Grey than his other famous character, The Fall's Paul Spector, and how some still can't place where they know him from.
"It happens more with Christian Grey, though they can't always place me," he said. 'It was really funny - I was driving back north a few weeks ago with my mates to play golf, and I'd been to a premiere in Dublin for 'Anthropoid'. It got really late, around midnight, so we stopped at a service station in the middle of nowhere for a Burger King."
He continued, "The girl working there looked at me and said, 'OMG! You must get this all the time - you're the spit of Christian Grey from those Fifty Shades movies!'. I wouldn't normally have done it but it was late, she was serving burgers, so I said, 'Yes, yes, it is me - I'm the actor from those films'. She looked at me like I was crazy, pulling her leg. I showed her ID but she hadn't a clue who Jamie Dornan was. She just wasn't having it! That keeps things real."
Dornan is about to be seen everywhere in the next few months. The Fall season 3 is about to premiere very soon, and the actor will soon be ramping up press for Fifty Shades Darker, the second film in the Fifty Shades of Grey franchise. That film will be released on Feb. 11, 2017, while the third film in the franchise, Fifty Shades Freed, will be released Feb. 10, 2018.
