Jamie Dornan, Fifty Shades of Grey star, recalls ‘stalker-type’ fan arriving at his house, describing it as ‘f—ing scary.’

  • Actor Jamie Dornan experienced a “stalker-type situation” when a fan appeared at his home, causing concern for his family’s safety.
  • Screenwriter Kelly Marcel’s final script for Fifty Shades of Grey did not match her original creative vision of the novel.
  • First film’s director, Sam Taylor-Johnson, not being part of the sequels led to a different experience for the actors and a departure from the original vision.

Actor Jamie Dornan, who starred in Fifty Shades of Grey, faced a frightening incident when a fan showed up at his home, creating a “stalker-type situation.” In an interview with The Independent, Dornan explained how he tried to put up walls around the fans to protect himself and his family. This alarming experience occurred when his children were at home, and Dornan emphasized the importance of shielding them from the intensity of fandom.

The Fifty Shades Trilogy has also experienced its share of controversy, with difficulties finding a screenwriter for the first film. Kelly Marcel was ultimately credited with the script, but she admitted in a 2015 podcast with author Bret Easton Ellis that the final movie bore little resemblance to her original vision of E.L. James’ novel.

Jamie Dornan and co-star Dakota Johnson played the lead roles in director Sam Taylor-Johnson’s Fifty Shades of Grey (2015). Both actors signed contracts committing them to three films, but Taylor-Johnson didn’t return to direct the sequels, Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed. Dornan expressed in his interview with The Independent that working without Taylor-Johnson was a different experience, as their bond and trust were vital to the project’s success. He also mentioned the challenges they faced due to the critical response and how the original vision was altered.

In the end, director Sam Taylor-Johnson expressed regret over making Fifty Shades of Grey. All three films in the trilogy are currently available to stream on Max.
