Zitat des Tages von Jamie Dornan:
One of my favorite things about my life is that I have the same group of friends that I grew up with. I love them so dearly, and we give each other a hard time.
I'd always really wanted to act; but the modelling contracts came more easily.
I could eat 10 packs of Hula Hoops a day and not think about it.
I don't like myself without a beard.
I'd been auditioning for parts for years. I never got any better at it. I'm crap at auditions. I know there are people who can walk into those rooms and make those lines sing on the page and get the job immediately. I wasn't one of them. I'm still not one of them.
I defy anyone to watch interviews with Ted Bundy and not be taken by him. He was very handsome and charming and extremely intelligent and, you know, that can exist.
My dad was a keen actor when he was young; my auntie is heavily involved in amateur dramatics back in Northern Ireland, and my great aunt was a woman called Greer Garson.
Addiction is a terrible thing.
You'd be hard-pressed to find an actor who isn't a sex symbol somewhere.
I feel good that I have my life in order. I'm not addicted to anything that I'm aware of.
I think sometimes actors are drawn to good television because you have more time to sell it, you have more time to shape a character, and to tell a story, and that's really appealing.
I don't like my physique. Who does?
People expect me to be stupid. I'm not saying I'm Stephen Fry, but it is amazing the perception people have.
Because I used to play a lot of sport, I've always been in decent enough shape. When I used to get asked to do a bit of body work before a photo shoot I'd lie and say, 'Yeah, I'm going to the gym.' I literally never did anything.
I've never read anything set in Belfast that doesn't involve the Troubles or something senseless over a flag.
I think people from Northern Ireland have some kind of unspoken general feeling of what it is to be around segregation. You have an awareness of it because you know how much grief it's caused.
'The Fall' changed my life - that's not an overstatement.
I think I've done two shoots in my underwear ever. They both happened to be for Calvin Klein. But that tag - 'underwear model' - I just can't get rid of it. And it's such a bizarre, specific thing - underwear. It's like I never modelled clothes.
I feel very settled. I'm not running in and out of clubs at 5 A.M. anymore.
Fairytales are stories that span every generation and they've been around for a long time.
Basically, I've always had a complex with the way I walk. I've not always been told I've got a bad walk, but someone's always commented on my walk.
Nobody sane wants just to be famous.
Modelling doesn't hold you back in L.A. at all.
I like playing characters who are fractured, broken. I find that more relatable, for some reason. I don't feel that I'm like that myself by nature, but there's just something that you can really grab hold of if people have a darkness in them, I think.
Being a leading man can come in many different forms.
I'm a fairly worldly guy.
Love from the fans is flattering. That's what makes the show. They are so essential to everything involved with 'Once Upon a Time.'
I can't really do the running on hard ground that I used to do. Instead I go swimming as often as possible.
I'm not saying that experiencing loss is why I can cope with darker worlds - I'm not saying that for a second - but I think it opens up a side of you in terms of work that wouldn't be as accessible had that stuff not happened.
I very much feel like I'm part of the makeup of 'Once Upon a Time.'
People attach too much to the idea of being a model, that you can only be a certain way to have done it. You will always be dealing with it. You're an actor who used to be a model who never trained; there are not many directors queuing up.
It's a strange environment, being hounded. The paparazzi are cretins.
