It's official. Jamie Dornan is Christian Grey. The Irish actor will be stepping into the void left when Charlie Hunnam bailed on the project earlier this month.
Not too much is known about him in the U.S., but perhaps that's for the best.
Sorry, Ian Somerhalder and Matt Bomer fans, but with a relative newcomer, you can truly believe Jamie Dornan is Christian Grey, not an actor playing him.
He is an actor, of course, as well as a model. One who could be described, as Anastasia Steele put it, as "the epitome of male beauty" and truly breathtaking"?
We'll leave to you do decide. He's certainly done his share of modeling - shirtless at that - which might help move some of the naysayers over to Team Jamie.
He's not Robert Pattinson, but there was a time when Robert Pattinson wasn't R-Pattz either. Think about that. Just visualize. Let the fantasies linger.
