Jamie Dornan, the star of the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey movie, was recently nominated for an Irish Film and Television Award, that of Actor in a Lead Role, Television. He’s an Irish actor, obviously, and he plays a serial killer on TV show The Fall, a crime thriller about a serial killer. He plays the serial killer.
Once upon a time, when you talked about Jamie Dornan, you usually said something like “that guy who used to date Kiera Knightley.” Thankfully, those days have long passed. Jamie Dornan, born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, dated the actress from 2003 until about 2005. At that time, he was working as a model, appearing in photo shoot campaigns alongside the likes of Kate Moss, and Eva Mendes.
Modeling as a career seemed to be working out pretty okay for Jamie Dornan, but it seems he had his eye on acting all along. His acting debut occurred in 2006 with his appearance in the Sophia Coppola film Marie Antoinette. Then, there was that embarrassing 2008 Myspace film release—the one called Beyond the Rave, which almost nobody watched. So it is not surprising that his acting career did not exactly skyrocket after those two roles.
The young actress should consider herself lucky to be casted as the main actress of the bestselling novel of 2013. Dakota Johnson is the daughter of Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith and has been seeing enough of Hollywood ever since her childhood.
She might have uttered the words in excitement but the news is all over and every fan wants to know why Dakota is being so ungrateful. Any actress will consider herself lucky to be casted against the dashing Irish actor Jamie in the erotic novel base movie even with the same name.
From Dakota’s point of view she believes that for playing Ana she had to try hard to get into her character. The one she is before meeting the charming Christian Grey. Ana is young graduate who is too afraid of the unseen. She is not like all the young teenagers who are impulsive and are always up for partying.
Mark Wahlberg wanted to get his hands on the Fifty Shades of Grey Movie and serve as the movie’s producer, but as it turns out things were not meant to be for this former model turned rapper turned actor turned producer and the title was awarded elsewhere.
Wahlberg was ‘blown away’ by the final price of the movie, stating that it was far out of his production company’sprice range to pay.
At the end of the day it was big-time Universal Pictures and Focus Films that won the bidding wars and the rights to the movie based upon the EL James trilogy that turned heads and showed women across the world that it was okay to explore their sexuality and their sexual nature.
Although Wahlberg did not get the winning bid on the movie it is still underway and filming it taking place in Vancouver, Canada as we speak. With a February 2015 release date it will still be some time before the fans can see what all the fuss was about, but according to what we have heard and the photos that we have saw, this is not going to be any bit of disappointing.
When it comes to adapting this sexually charged book in to a film version, the cast and production crew are running in to some challenges. While the book is very centered on sexual exploration and contact, the movie can quickly take that a little too far.
The issue is that when a person is reading about a sexual scene he or she can create an image that he or she is personally comfortable with.
Therefore, there is no possibility that the reader will be shocked by the imagery in a delicately described sex scene because he or she is the one creating the corresponding images.
When a book is adapted to a film version, the director is the person who paints the picture of the sexual tension and contact for the audience. This can be particularly challenging when the director paints the picture in a way that not many people saw the scene unfolding in his or her head.
When it comes to adapting a book to a movie version, there is always the pit in the bottom of the stomach of the people who loved the book. There is a fear of seeing the photos of the film version of the book and having them crush the ideas that you had in your head.
Every reader loves to read because you can create your own images of what is happening and create the entire movie in your imagination.
The images are perfect because you make all of the characters look exactly the way someone you were attracted to looks, or look like what you would consider to be a villain.
The devastating part of a movie is when you get the chance to observe the photos and the main characters that you artfully created in your head look nothing like the characters that the director had chosen.
