Jamie Dornan recalls nappy nightmare

Jamie Dornan didn't think he'd ever get used to changing dirty nappies after a "horrific" incident.

The 32-year-old actor and his wife Amelia Warner welcomed their little girl into the world in November 2013 and have got into the full swing of parenting duties since then.

But it didn't come naturally to Jamie, who is still scarred by an experience prior to fatherhood.

'Weirdly, I get enjoyment out of changing a nappy'

"Before I had my daughter, I changed my niece's nappy on a horrific occasion in Hyde Park [London, UK]. And it was like more sh*t than I'd ever seen in my life," he laughed to British magazine Stylist. "I was with my wife, who wasn't my wife at the time, and it was quite early on in the relationship. I was like, 'I'm not sure I could ever get used to this.' But you do, and you don't even think about it. Weirdly, I get enjoyment out of changing a nappy. I find it such a levelling thing. I don't mind getting up in the middle of the night with her - although we're lucky because she sleeps for 12 hours."

Jamie's career was transformed thanks to playing serial killer Paul Spector in successful BBC drama The Fall, and he's become even more popular since landing the role of kinky businessman Christian Grey in Fifty Shades. The movie, also starring Dakota Johnson, hits cinemas on Friday, just in time for Valentine's Day, and while he didn't read the books by E. L. James beforehand, the actor can now see why they became so popular.

"Sometimes something really captures people, and I think this may have unlocked something in lots of people - mostly women - that they haven't let themselves explore before," he explained. "That's most liberating. I think we've made a classy movie. Sam [Taylor-Johnson, director] provides a massive element of sophistication to the project.

"I would say it was [the biggest professional decision I've ever had to make]."
