It may not come as much of a surprise – it has been a bit “will he, won’t he” from pretty much the second he was announced as Charlie Hunnam’s replacement – but Jamie Dornan has officially confirmed that he’s Fifty Shades of finished with the erotic franchise.
The Irish heartthrob revealed the news after filming wrapped on the second and third installments of the global hit, saying that he won’t be reprising his role as the titular Christian Grey should a movie adaptation of the fourth book, Grey, go ahead.
“We have done two movies back to back now, and I’m actually finished with it,” The Sun reports. “I’ve done Fifty Shades forever.
“I move on very fast in my mind. As much as from the outside people think you are synonymous with one character, but I’m very much like, ‘Right, that’s done’ and move on to the next project and worry about that character.”
The huge news comes hot on the heels of rumours that Dornan is set to appear totally naked in either Fifty Shades Darker or Fifty Shades Freed; when asked if he’d be joining co-star Dakota Johnson in a full-frontal scene, he coyly answered: “The truth is that I don’t know… You’ll have to wait and see.”
With one hand he giveth, hey?
