“I Don’t Want To Die Yet” – Jamie Dornan’s Biggest Fear About 50 Shades Of Grey Role

50 Shades of Grey will be hitting screens next month.


Next month 50 Shades Of Grey will be released in cinemas across the globe and Jamie Dornan will undoubtedly quickly become a household name.

The premiere will see the film’s stars take to the red carpet, something that leading man Dornan is a little apprehensive about.

In an interview with Details magazine, the Co. Down man joked about his biggest fear… being assassinated in a John Lennon-style shooting.

“I almost don’t want to put this out there into the ether, but I fear I’ll get murdered, like John Lennon, by one of those mad fans at the premiere,” he told the magazine.

Adding: “Because a lot of people are very angry that I’m playing this character. And I’m a father now, and a husband. I don’t want to die yet.”

“And when I do get murdered, people will say, ‘God, isn’t it haunting how he did that interview in Details magazine and predicted his own death on the red carpet?’”

If you’re looking for a bodyguard, Jamie… we know a few ladies willing to fulfil those duties.
