Jamie Dornan Is 'Fifty Shades's Christian Grey, But Who Is Jamie Dornan?

Try using the arrow keys

We were all very much bereaved when we learned that the sexy Charlie Hunnam would no longer be playing Christian Grey. We worried, we campaigned for our next-in-line choice and sat, waiting, fearful that this ill-begotten franchise would falter before it even began. But fear not, you erstwhile Christian Grey fans: Fifty Shades of Grey has a hot new leading man, and his name is Jamie Dornan. You might recognize him from films like Marie Antoinette or as Sheriff Graham from Once Upon A Time, if his name and those soulful eyes don't jog your memory.

But like... who is this guy? Sure, he's hot, although I wouldn't actually know since I keep getting lost in his eyes (sigh). Is he really qualified to play one of the most talked-about literary characters in recent history (Edward Cullen aside, obviously)? Tough to say, although the choice of two unexpected and lesser-known stars for the lead role suggests that Fifty Shades of Grey might just do the unbelievable and surprise us. Read through these helpful facts, get to know him a little better, and decide for yourself: Is this the S&M sex god of your dreams, or, is he just a good looking, blue-eyed imposter?
