Jamie Dornan was born in a little town in Northern Ireland called Holywood, which hinted at his spectacular future from the very first day of his life. He didn’t waste much time on education and shortly after being accepted to college, moved to London in order to take acting lessons. His plans were a bit postponed when Dornan realized he can make money as a model. Jamie worked with numerous famous brands, including Dolce & Gabanna and Dior. He also had his own band Sons of Jim, but they broke up in 2008, when Jamie realized his career was about to take off.
Date of Birth: May 1, 1982

His first big role was in Marie Antoinette (2006) alongside Kirsten Dunst. Dornan appeared in several other movies since and even got a lead in television show The Fall. But biggest success came to Jamie when he was cast in a romantic drama Fifty Shades of Grey (2015) based on a famous erotic novel. He’s already wrapped up the entire trilogy and is now free to focus on his acting career, which is looking very good for the handsome actor.
Despite his heartthrob on-screen persona, Dornan is actually a dedicated family man. His kind character might’ve been caused by the death of his mother when he was a teenager. Jamie has only been married once and is a proud father to two adorable girls. Here’s what we’ve gathered about the people he calls family.
