Well isn’t he sneaky.
We were anticipating Jamie’s arrival in LA as he’s scheduled to attend the Academy Awards on Sunday night but it looks like he arrived in America unbeknownst to anyone.
Jamie was spotted in LA participating in the United Voices Rally on Friday, February 24, an anti-Trump event. We never see a political side of Jamie and although the photos of him are not suggesting he marched or protested, he was there showing his support to those in America who (clearly) share the same views.
He also snapped a picture with Sam Heughan, sending fans of both actors into a frenzy!
After LA, Jamie is off to Croatia for a week of filming for a new film and role he’s quite excited about, Robin Hood: Origins, opposite Jamie Foxx. Dornan will play one of Hood’s merry men, Will Scarlet. Jamie’s getting back in tune with his Once Upon A Time days, playing fictional characters he’s more than comfortable with. Although his OUAT days were short, it’s nice to see him settling back into his roots.
The 2017 EE BAFTAs took place on Sunday, February 12th, 2017 at the Royal Albert Hall in London, UK where our favourite Irishman and his real-life leading lady graced the red carpet.
These two never disappoint in terms of fashion and downright making us swoon at any event they attend and the BAFTAs are no exception.
With Jamie’s hand firmly holding Amelia’s, the pair stepped onto the red carpet at the 2017 EE BAFTAs where Jamie was presenting an award. Jamie looked sharp in a navy blue tuxedo by Neil Barrett complete with Tods shoes and a snazzy bowtie. He looked chic, clean and comfortable. But let’s be honest, Amelia stole the show in a S/S 2017 rainbow sequined gown with a small train by Ong Pairam. She shimmered and sparkled next to her man who’s tux complemented the dress well.
Jamie later stepped into the press room where cameras caught what looked to be a hilarious joke or conversation between him and Rafe Spall. The pair are belly laughing at whatever’s been said and cameras were there to catch every knee slapping moment of it!
Jamie and Amelia later headed to the after party where they wrapped up the night.

The Graham Norton Show is always a favourite among Jamie Dornan fans, if not our most favoured. The Fifty Shades Darker star sat down on that orange, suede couch for a third time on February 10 to chat about the movie which officially premiered the same day.
While Jamie told a few stories we’ve recently heard him tell in current interviews, the one about his tactics for getting through the movie’s sex scenes is our new cream of the crop.
When asked about the movie,
Jamie: “There’s probably more sex in it.”
Graham: “More sex? Yes, Jamie doesn’t speak.”
Jamie: “I make noises. I make American, accented noises. There’s some scenes where they will play music so it’s the closest we get to sort of, kind of going for it in one piece. My temptation is always just to try to make Dakota laugh so sometimes, I’ll do things when there’s a moment when I’m meant to (you know) orgasm I’ll be like (mimics Ryan Air flight jingle.)
Graham: “See, people do that!”
Jamie: “Which by the way, if they don’t, they should . It’s like when a Ryan Air flight, when a Ryan Air flight lands, (mimics jingle again.)”
The audience was roaring as fellow guests of the show Whoopi Goldberg and Keanu Reeves animatedly engaged in the conversation. Graham’s in the corner laughing his face off as usual.
It’s no surprise that Jamie would try to lighten the mood in such an intimate, awkward and baring scene. Both Jamie and Dakota’s personalities mesh well together; she’s pulled some stunts on Jamie in the past too.
Jamie first appeared on The Graham Norton Show back in 2014 prior to the release of Fifty Shades of Grey. He joined Norton once again in 2015 preceding the first films premier.

10 questions for… Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson
Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele are back in the second Fifty Shades of Grey movie: Fifty Shades Darker. Their performers Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson tell how it was to be back on set and in bed.
1. What was it like to go back to work?
Dakota: “I loved it. For me it was the first time that I returned to a project; I’ve never played in a series or in a franchise before. But it was so wonderful to see all the familiar faces on the first day, not only of my fellow actors, but of the crew also. It felt a bit like summer camp, that you’d meet everyone again a year later.”
2. Has your life changed a lot after the first film?
Jamie: “You bet. My life was turned upside down in that period anyway. My oldest daughter was born three days before the shooting of the first film, my second daughter two weeks before the second. So that had quite an impact and then it ran again in sync with all the craziness surrounding the film.”
3. How Do fans respond when they see you?
Dakota: “Occasionally someone yells something strange at you, but that was to be expected …”
Jamie: “Dakota lives in Los Angeles, where people react very cool when they see a celebrity. They are more accustomed. In other places that is different. With me in Ireland you really notice it when people recognize you. What I find particularly mad is that they cannot keep my character and me apart. They ask you for an autograph, which I really sign with my own name, and they say, ‘Super thanks, Grey’.”
4. Actors often say that sex scenes are not too exciting and more technical matters. How do you feel about that?
Dakota: “What I especially start to find a challenge is: how to make them different? There are so many sex scenes. The last thing you want is that it’s boring. So there you have to always be creative.”
Jamie: “They tried to cluster these scenes wherever possible, fortunately. You have a bizarre week where you get done as much as possible. The Red Room weeks they called it, only the much needed people were on the set.”
6. That sounds pretty intense.
Dakota: “Those weeks were suffering, yes, but at the same time it affects you less and less. We had such loose scenes among them, sometimes. When they announced that the set was released for such a scene, I thought: ‘Oh yes, we also had to do that today’.”
7. Does it feel very different to come back a role that you have played before?
Jamie: “Definitely. You already know the character, so you have much more of a feeling. I find it especially beautiful that Christian has changed. I like him much better in this movie and in the next than in the first. When we met him, he was determined only to live his life the way he wanted.”
8. In the first images of Fifty Shades Darker we see a more pronounced Anastasia.
Dakota: “She evolves in all aspects of her life. She’s stronger, more confident and she shows a lot more assertiveness. I think that’s cool. She gets to endure a lot from people from all sides, talking at her, but she finds in it a way to protect herself and her love for Christian.”
9. We also find out more about the background of Christian. Were there still any surprises for you?
Jamie: “No, because I know the books and we don’t depart from that principle. And rightly so, I think.”
10. Does that make it any less exciting for the people who have read the books?
Jamie: “This is the story that fans love. That’s what they want to see, so that’s what they get.”

It’s no surprise that the most anticipated Fifty Shades Darker premier is that of the one held in the UK – this premier is special, more so than any of the other premiers. Although it was nice to change it up and feature new premier locations, the UK has this in the bag.
The inaugural premier was hosted by Leicester Odeon Square for the second time on February 9th, 2017 where everyone placed their best fashion foot forward.
Dornan, Johnson, Foley and James all looked stellar in their designer gowns and suits. Johnson wore a flawless and uber-romantic black and white Alexander McQueen gown from the Spring 2017 collection. Her neutral makeup and limited accessories were just the perfect touch, careful not to take away from the stunning dress.
Dornan made us swoon with yet another perfectly tailored suit for his perfectly tailored body by Louis Vuitton, saving the grey suit for last. The premier’s white backdrop perfectly complimented every angle of his face and immaculate beard.
Dornan’s wife, Amelia Warner, accompanied the star to this premier. Thank goodness – we’ve been dying to see Millie! With her arm draped around Jamie’s waist, Millie wore an ensemble by Rosetta Getty with a pair of Jimmy Choo’s to match. Her enigmatic, bright red smile in contrast to the grey-scale wardrobe and backdrop offers some pop to the evening all the while looking cool, calm, collective and classy. Jamie even stole a kiss! Seriously, the way these two are with each other, the way they look at each other – relationship goals.
The UK premier of Fifty Shades Darker would mark the end of the premier schedule, but not the promotional schedule. Both Jamie and Dakota had a slew of interviews lined up and would continue to travel the globe to endorse the film.
The third stop on a hectic, chaotic and whirlwind promotional tour for Fifty Shades Darker took place in Madrid, Spain on February 8th, 2017.
Prior to the evenings red carpet festivities, Dornan, Johnson, James and Foley took some time to sightsee and popularize the already massive franchise by visiting and posing for pictures at Puerta De Alcala Monument in the glistening sun.
As the evening approached, the stars stepped out once again for fans and photographers emanating glamour and class on the red carpet. Dakota turned heads in a vintage, ruffled pink Gucci gown while Dornan donned another well-fitted suit, practically crafted for his body by Neil Barrett and shoes by Ferragamo.
After Madrid would come the biggest, most anticipated premier of all – The UK Premier at Leicester, Odeon Square in London.
