Jamie Dornan, Shades of Desire by Alice Montgomery
This biography will reveal everything fans want to know about the mysterious Mr Dornan, who has been cast as Christian Grey in the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey movie. In this compelling portrait of the actor, musician and model, we discover his Northern Irish roots and what first drew him to acting–could it have anything to do with film and Hollywood being in the family’s blood? We also learn of the tragedy in his childhood and of the relationship–with superstar Keira Knightley–that broke his heart. This book reveals what it was like for Jamie to play a serial killer for months on end and then transform himself into every woman’s ultimate fantasy–as damaged, dashing Christian Grey.
