Jamie Dornan Interview – Anthropoid – “This character was probably the closest to me personally that I’ve ever played”
Jamie Dornan is glad to have the chance to play characters that allow him to carve out a screen identity very different from that of Christian Grey. Intense, quiet, and thoughtful in conversation, Dornan is well aware of the dangers of becoming a prisoner of his 50 Shades of Grey franchise.
Q: How much of your own personality went into Jan’s character? Did you feel an affinity for him?
DORNAN: This character was probably the closest to me personally that I’ve ever played. I understood Jan as soon as I read the script and it was quite a natural process for me to be able to go on the set and be very comfortable as the character.
