Rumour has it 50 Shades of Grey has a new leading man. Variety recently reported somewhat unknown Irish actor Jamie Dornan (31) will soon seduce Anastasia Steele on screen as bondage-loving Christian Grey.

Here are five things you didn’t know about Jamie.

  1. He models Calvin Klein underwear so he probably won’t mind stripping on screen. He was also the face of male fragrance Dior Homme.
  2. He was “discovered” by British actress Keira Knightly. The two met at photo shoot for the luxury goods company Asprey. She helped him get his foot in the door by introducing him to her acting agent. The two dated for two years.
  3. He played Sheriff Graham in the first season of the fairytale-inspired TV series Once Upon a Time and portrays a ruthless serial killer terrorising Belfast in the BBC series The Fall, which was recently renewed for a second season.
  4. His father, Professor Jim Dornan, is a successful obstetrician who dreamt of being an actor when he was younger.
  5. He’s going to be a father soon. Jamie and his singer-songwriter wife, Amelia Warner, announced in June this year they are expecting their first child. The couple married in April this year.
