Sometime back, it was rumoured that Jamie Dornan might not play Christian Grey in the sequel for Fifty Shades. However, it has been confirmed that the actor will return back as the Christian Grey in the sequel after Fifty Shades of Grey became a blockbuster hit worldwide. The Irish model is not just returning as Mr. Grey but is enjoying fame as he is getting paid a huge check for his kinky role on-screen.
Jamie reportedly was paid just over $100,000 U.S dollars for the first film, but according to the Daily Star his pay will be increased to £4.5 million - or $6.92 million in U.S dollars for the next two films.
"Jamie has signed the deal and he's thrilled, the money on offer was just too good," a source told the publication. "He's been really worried that he will get typecast as Christian Grey and it will do his long-term career ambitions damage."
"So he was about to walk away and leave it all behind then bosses of the movie franchise came back with the jaw-dropping offer," the insider continued.
A few weeks back, it was rumoured that Jamie was quitting his role from the franchise because his wife, Amelia Warner was uncomfortable with the sex scenes in the erotic film. But the scenario is different. "Amelia has no issue with it at all, but Jamie is too embarrassed to let her see the racier scenes," said the source.
