Inside Grey’s Anatomy: The Unauthorized Biography of Jamie Dornan
Jamie Dornan came to the role of Christian Grey in the motion picture Fifty Shades of Grey as Hollywood's answer to a prayer when the original actor, Charlie Hunnam, left the picture a scant three weeks before production was set to begin.
But the reality was that Dornan's being thrust into “Instant” celebrity was more than a decade in the making chronicled in entertaining depth in the Inside Grey's Anatomy: The Unauthorized Biography of Jamie Dornan by New York Times best-selling author Marc Shapiro.
Dornan' story is ripe with pathos, talent, determination and luck. After losing his mother at an early age, Dornan struggled with frustration and aimlessness as he attempted to find his way in the world. Luck entered the picture when he stumbled into the world of international modeling where, after being dubbed The Golden Torso, he reluctantly rode the glitz and glamour, making money, dating the most sought-after women but ultimately chaffing as he dreamed of becoming an actor. His determination finally kicked open the door with important works in both television and film. Finally the phone rang early one morning and Christian Grey was born.
