Christian Grey star wants to be in films his kids can watch

Irish star Jamie Dornan has revealed that he would like to start making films that his young children would be able to watch.

Dornan, who is best known for playing bondage loving Christian Grey in the steamy Fifty Shades Of Grey franchise, doesn’t think his kids will be allowed to watch his most famous films any time soon.

He told the Irish Mirror: “Certainly not for a bloody long time!

“Maybe not the Fifty side of things, but if they wanted to watch that one day and see what daddy does, then that’s cool. I am mindful that I have two children now.

“There is a part of me that does want to do something they can watch soon – that is kind of lighthearted – because I don’t consider myself a dark or menacing person despite what I portray on-screen.

“I definitely want to have the opportunity to show other sides as well.”

The Christian Grey role – along with Dornan’s model looks – have earned him legions of female fans, but the County Down actor takes it all in his stride.

He said: “You know, that’s all frivolous and fun and I don’t pay a huge amount of attention to it. You certainly can’t be annoyed with that sort of status.

“It goes with the territory a little bit. But I guess my thing is not to pay a great deal of heed to it.”

The latest installment in the Fifty Shades franchise come out early next year and Dornan said that he is finding the steamy scenes easier to film than in previous films.

He said: “I felt more comfortable the second time around. There was a lot of pressure the first time.

“I think when you’re making the first film of any franchise there is a lot of pressure in terms of setting a tone and the way it’s shot and the way it’s played and finding your feet with it.

“It was very strange that I came into that job six weeks before they started filming, which is totally unheard of in a franchise of that size – and not the way you want to go into any job, really.

“This time I felt I had a lot more time on my hands. And the pressure seemed to be off a bit with every department because the first one made so much money.

“Everyone was in a better place about it. So it was definitely a better experience.”
