Jamie Dornan is a little bit less of a mystery now that we see him tap-dancing by himself between takes on the Fifty Shades of Grey set.
Or making goofy faces into an onset monitor.
This Fifty Shades behind-the-scenes extra (part of the May 8 Blu-Ray release) shows a very different side of Dornan, the 32-year-old actor who portrays supremely serious billionaire Christian Grey.
Director Sam Taylor-Johnson points out that Dornan is a “perfectly-pitched” Grey, partly for his “elegance.”
“But he also brings exactly what Christian is, that slight one step removed in mystery,” says Taylor-Johnson.
Dornan does humanize himself with some behind-the-scenes antics and outright laughter. He’s self-deprecating when he points out that he didn’t jump at the Grey part of the kinky billionaire.
“I didn’t immediately think, ‘Oh ya that’s me. I’m the guy,” says Grey.
