With Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson expected to become more popular as they reprise their roles in “Fifty Shades Darker,” is there a possibility that they could never leave the shadow of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele?
It can be noted that the popularity of the 34-year-old Northern Irish actor and 26-year-old Texas-born actress rose further when they were cast as the main characters of the movie-adaptation of E.L. James’ novels.
As they continue to give life to their roles in “Fifty Shades of Grey” and “Fifty Shades Freed,” they are rumored to be scared to lose their chance of being considered for other types of roles.
According to Celeb Dirty Laundry, Jamie Dornan for one has admitted about not wanting to be “typecast” for his portrayal in the romantic film.
“I think as an actor, you do just want to mix it up and do stuff that challenges you,” the husband of Amelia Warner reportedly shared with “Good Morning America’s” Lara Spencer.
”You don’t want to be typecast,” he added. “That is definitely a part of it.”
The “Fifty Shades Darker” actor, who was promoting his new movie called “Anthropoid,” also hinted that filming for months was never an easy task.
“It’s a slog making movies. There’s way harder ways to make a living, don’t get me wrong,” he explained. “But a lot of energy goes into them, and if you can do two at once, I think it makes sense for everyone.”
He further narrated that it is difficult to “re-motivate” and “get back into character.”
As the actor has been known for doing steamy scenes on the erotic films, Celeb Dirty Laundry alleged that it might take a while before Hollywood would notice what he’s got, particularly his acting abilities.
The same fears may be plaguing his co-star, Dakota Johnson, who had to show a lot of skin for these three-part kinky/romance movie franchise.
Meanwhile, ComingSoon.net reported that based on the account of Jamie Dornan, being in Paris for “Fifty Shades Darker” filming during the Bastille Day terror attack somehow dampened their spirit.
However, with the energy of their director, the atmosphere on the set felt better.
