Today, several people talked about Jamie to different websites. Here is a post that will recap them all. First, Jamie’s father, Jim, talks about his feminist son and his role in Fifty Shades of Grey / Then, the film’s screenwriter Kelly Marcel talks about Jame’s performance / And finally, Colin O’Donoghue, actor from Once Upon a Time, also talked about Jamie in an interview.
Jim Dornan, via Dailymail:
‘Jamie might be playing Christian Grey, but he has inherited a total respect and commitment to women and women’s rights,’
‘We are all that way in the family. Jamie and my two daughters are very pro-women — I have influenced them with that.’
‘As with the role Jamie’s playing, a lot of people are into all sorts of things, and I don’t think we should knock anything that people consent to.’
Kelly Marcel, FSOG screenwriter, via EOnline:
When asking how difficult it is to write a sex scene, Aslan recited a line from the book, « Mmmm…he’s soft and hard at once, like steel encased in velvet, surprisingly tasty, salty and smooth. He’s my own Christian Grey-flavored popsicle. »
Marcel laughed and said, « She says that, ‘You are my popsicle.’ That line went in, its genius. They apparently did that scene great. Apparently Jamie is great at being soft and hard at the same time. Which is hard to do for an actor! He’s going to get an Oscar! »
But how does someone translate a « Christian Grey popsicle » on-screen? Marcel explained that scenes had to be very specific and descriptive in the script, adding that she couldn’t just write, « They made love » and move on, making things awkward sometimes.
« I had to actually describe everything! It was really embarrassing when you’re doing studio notes around the table with 12 people, » she said.
> Thus we can confirm the presence of a particular bathroom scene in the movie! Unless it will be cut within the finale editing of the movie…
Colin O’Donoghue, OUAT actor, via Zap2it:
« I think Hook could take anyone, to be honest, but I’m bound to say that. » Captain Hook actor Colin O’Donoghue brags to Zap2it in reference to any possible return of Sheriff Graham/The Huntsman. « Jamie is fantastic and a lovely guy. It’d be interesting to see how that would work, if there are any residuals from [Emma and Graham]. »
