“Fifty Shades Darker” star Jamie Dornan has admitted that he is a murderer. At least for his upcoming role as the Nazi Anti-Hero in the film “Anthropoid.”
Dornan will play the role of Jan Kubis, one of two Czech agents and dissidents who annihilated Reinhard Heydrich, one of the “Holocaust” architects during World War II. Joining him would be another Irish actor, Cillian Murphy, who will play as his partner, Josef Gabcik. The Operation worked behind the name “Operation Anthropoid.”
Dornan described his character as someone with a deep conviction to kill for the “good”. He even compared Kubis to his serial killer character in the TV show “The Fall”
“He’s a man with a mission to carry out, and it’s a mission for the right reasons. It’s not someone like [Paul] Spector who is murdering people just for no good reason… This is murder in a sense, but it’s for a greater good,” he revealed, according to TIME.
During a press conference, the “Fifty Shades Darker” actor also praised the work of script writers Ellis and Anthony Frewin for helping him get into character
“A lot of that work, thankfully, is done for me on the page [of the script]. All the human flaws and all the things that make him a tangible person, the everyman you can relate to are on the page, which is great,” Dornan explained, quotes Variety.
“They’re heroes in the sense of what they did, but very much on the page you see that they are flawed, and have very human aspects to them that would hinder trying to carry out an exercise like this.”
The movie directed by Sean Ellis, is set to film in Prague this September. Joining them are producers Pete Shilaimon and David Ondricek, Toby Jones, Harry Lloyd and Czech actress, Anna Geiserlova, Screen Daily reported.
This is a welcome news to Jamie Dornan fans. Not only will they see the sexy side of the actor as Christian Grey in the movie “Fifty Shades Darker”, they can expect the rough and tumble persona of the actor in this World War movie.
