During the Q&A following the screening of the first episode of The Fall season 2 tonight, several journalists from different websites and magazines asked some questions to Jamie. While he’s just returned from Los Angeles, Jamie answered to several questions even if he was very tired; another proof of his kindness.
Two sites already shared their interviews tonight and here are the extracts with Jamie:

Actor Jamie Dornan has admitted the role of serial killer Paul Spector has left him « scarred » for life. The Fifty Shades Of Grey actor was speaking at the premiere of series two of BBC2 series The Fall where he plays Spector, a sexually motivated murderer.
Asked about the impact of the role, he said: « There are maybe not a lot positives. You can’t fail to be left lightly scarred by inhabiting someone like that for two seasons. »
« I do carry elements of him in a worrying way. I find him relatable and understand why he is how he is. »
« There are times towards the end of filming series one and series two where I did scare myself that some of Jamie’s reactions were like Paul’s. »
« You do carry some of that anger and that hatred in you a little bit, especially towards the end of filming. »

The actor Jamie Dornan said he has been left scarred by playing a serial killer in BBC2’s The Fall, the channel’s most popular – and most violent – new drama for 20 years.
Dornan, the former underwear model who will star in the film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey, said: “You can’t fail to be left slightly scarred by inhabiting someone like that for two seasons.
“I do carry elements of him with me in a worrying way. I find him relatable … I have a deep understanding of him and why he is why he is.”
Speaking at the launch of the second series on Tuesday alongside his co-star Gillian Anderson, Dornan said he would “scare myself” by absorbing some of the reactions of his character, the sexually motivated killer Paul Spector.
“He had such distaste for everything,” he added. “You do carry some of that anger and that hatred in you a little bit, especially towards the end of a few months playing him.”
Asked if he was a feminist, Dornan said he would “never totally describe myself as a feminist. I have feminist values. I am well aware what my character is doing is wrong.”
He said the role had “totally transformed” his life and career, and hinted that his character could yet return, even after the end of the six-part second series which will begin on BBC2 later this year.
Moreover, the Twitter LatersBabyUK who attended the screening, shared another video of the Q&A that you can watch below. Thanks to her!
