Jamie recently sat down with ICON EL PAÍS to discuss The Fall, Fifty Shades of Grey and his time spent as a teen with friends Eddie Redmayne and Andrew Garfield. Although the article was originally printed in Spanish, EJD has spent some time translating the article into proper English. Read below and enjoy!
It took one decade for the ex model from Belfast to be acknowledged as an actor. Now, Jamie Dornan fights to get rid of Grey’s shadow. Thanks to roles like the psychopath in “The Fall” or the heroic soldier from “The Siege of Jadotville” (the Netflix Original that will be released on Netflix October 7th,) it looks like he won’t need to wait another decade this time. He talked to us in an exclusive interview for ICON.
There are Twitter accounts dedicated to celebrating the shapes of his arms. Advertising images where this ex-model appeared cuddled up with Kate Moss, or smeared with oil along with Eva Mendes, form part of the popular imagery of the past decade. Media as prestigious as The New York Times nicknamed him ‘The Golden Torso’ and a trailer for the second installment of the Fifty Shades series – where he plays the most mysterious icon of our age: a millionaire fond of sadomasochistic sex – sent millions of fans into a frenzy counting down the days until the premiere (February 10, 2017). Jamie Dornan, however, is the one that seems to care the least. Northern Ireland’s 34 year old clearly wants to offer something more than a godlike physique. He could have spent his days signing a never ending stream of advertising contracts while continuing to be shown half naked but instead decided to pursue acting. After facing some criticism, Dornan landed the role in the UK television series ‘The Fall’, where he plays a psychopath from his native city of Belfast. The Fall has just released its third season, and it’s in that television series that Dornan proves his depth as an actor. His latest film, a stark contrast to his role as Christian Grey, also showcases Dornan’s talent. ‘The Siege of Jadotville,’ which debuts on Netflix October 7, is inspired by a true story. In 1961, during the war of Katanga, a secessionist province of Congo, an Irish battalion of 150 soldiers sent by the United Nations was attacked by some 3000 men of the local army assisted by French and Belgian mercenaries. There were five days of fierce fighting, but this battle was excluded from the official history of Ireland. “I had no idea about this battle. It was kept secret for years for several reasons, which I find embarrassing since it shows Irish heroics on a large scale” He explains in his County Down accent, after a photo shoot in which he had been amicable and sociable, spontaneous and somewhat foul-mouthed.
Why did you get into the film business? I don’t have the proper attitude for working in an office. From a young age, I knew that I was not that kind of person. I lack the patience to sit in front of a computer. I had no idea what I would do, but I think that all those who work in film feel compelled at a young age. I started theatre at the age of 13; I wanted to be a different person and express myself accordingly than my friends on the rugby team. It was clear I wanted to be an actor. I felt comfortable in a world that allowed me to be the person people weren’t expecting me to be.
The long awaited premier for The Siege of Jadotville took place in Dublin, Ireland tonight and not only was the evening a star studded event, it was also a touching tribute to the veterans who served as peace keepers during the battle.
Our favourite billionaire turned serial killer, turned doctor turned two time war hero took to the red carpet and Q&A (which happened afterwards) tonight at the Irish premier of Jadotville; a Netflix Original film set to debut on Netflix word wide October 7th, had it’s official premier tonight with a plenitude of cast including Jamie Dornan himself (Quinlan) Sam Keeley (Bill), Jason O’Mara (Prendergast) and former The Fall cast mate Michael McElhatton (McEntee.) All wore their best to attend what was a uniquely special premier.
Based on a true story, Jadotville tells the story of how peace keepers, turned into soldiers in a valiant effort to fight off French and Belgian Mercenaries in the Congo during the early 1960’s. Those who survived were invited to attend the premier this evening.
Donning their berets and their uniforms proudly, the veterans of the 35th Battalion were treated with class, dignity and given a front row seat to the premier. They stopped to pose with actors, walked the red carpet shook hands and enjoyed an evening of reminiscing with old friends. An overdue homage to a film that has brought a story that many were unaware of, to life.
After a short red carpet and plentiful fan pictures, the event headed indoors to a closed movie premier in which Jamie, fellow cast and veterans all attended. The film was followed by a Q&A of which Jamie participated alongside others.
The event has since quieted down with little activity afterwards. We imagine everyone hugged and said a heartfelt goodbye after an already emotional day. We hope that as fans of Jamie, he and his cast mates, have done those who served in the 35th Battalion proud and that his (Jamie) work continues to take him to avenues he never dreamed of exploring; ones that hopefully touch your hearts as much as they touch ours.
The anticipation of more stunning photos is never out of the question. Be sure to visit the gallery for all of the additions so far, and more to come!
IT’S FINALLY HERE!Today, we got our very first glimpse at the first official trailer for The Siege at Jadotville! Take a look below!
Based on an untold true story, Dornan plays Pat Quinlan who leads a plight of UN peacekeepers in the Congoin 1961. The film is a Netflix original movie which has received both a cinematic release date of September 19th, 2016(only Ireland and the UK) and a Netflix debut of October 7th, 2016. An official movie premier has also been set to coincide with the Irish and UK release date of September 19th, 2016 which Dornan is scheduled to attend in Dublin. The trailer is gripping, powerful and emits bravery, a characteristic Dornan has nailed with his past two films (Anthropoid) Dornan is doing an exceptional job at putting Ireland on the map and we’ve learned so much from him, the country and what life was like during times of war. Jamie has definitely opened our eyes with his eclectic taste in roles and it’s been a pure pleasure watching him grow.
Now if a trailer wasn’t enough, the fans were also privy to a new movie still and movie poster today. This definitely makes Friday better than what it already is.
With so much Jamie currently happening and expected to happen, how are we ever going to survive?! Watch the trailer again and again and check out some HD screencaps, still and movie poster of Jamie in his role as Pat Quinlan in the gallery.
