Birth Place: Belfast, Northern Ireland, UK

Jamie Dornan grew up in Northern Ireland in the '80s and '90s, gravitating towards acting and modeling as he reached his late teens. He briefly attended university but dropped out to pursue his career. The early 2000s are when he started modeling, working with a variety of high-profile brands such as Hugo Boss, Armani, and Calvin Klein, becoming one of the most well-regarded male models of the time. He first explored screen acting in 2006 in Sofia Coppola's "Marie Antoinette" (2006). That didn't necessarily stick, though, as he only sporadically appeared in small movies while still modeling for the rest of the decade. He appeared as the Huntsman in the early seasons of the fairy tale-inspired "Once Upon a Time" (ABC 2011-18). After his time on that show ended, he had a villainous role opposite Gillian Anderson on "The Fall" (BBC Two 2013-16), which ran for three seasons. While he was appearing on "The Fall," actor Charlie Hunnam dropped out of the then-upcoming film adaptation of "Fifty Shades of Grey" (2015), opening up the role of Christian Grey that eventually went to Dornan. He reprised the role in the two sequels, "Fifty Shades Darker" (2017) and "Fifty Shades Freed" (2018). Dornan's role in the trilogy opened him up to more acting roles as he starred in the Netflix-distributed "The Siege of Jadotville" (2016), the relationship drama "Untogether" (2018), and biopic "A Private War" (2018). He also appeared in the Taron Egerton-starring "Robin Hood" (2018) as Will Scarlet. Post-Fifty Shades, Dornan began to take on more varied roles, including the sci-fi horror movie "Synchronic" (2019) and partially improvised drama "Endings, Beginnings" (2019).
