‘Fifty Shades of Grey’: Jamie Dornan Says ‘50 Shades’ Movie Filming Helped Him Walk

The “Fifty Shades of Grey” filming helped star Jamie Dornan walk better, he said.

Dornan, who is playing title character Christian Grey, said that he’s had a “complex with the way” he walks, according to an interview with the Graham Norton Show.

“So basically, I’ve always had a complex with the way I walk,” he said. “I’ve not always been told I’ve got a bad walk, but someone’s always commented on my walk,” he added. “It’s always been a bit like, ‘alright. That’s how you walk?'”

Dornan, 31, explained that he always walked on his tiptoes and was “quite bouncy” before filming the movie.

But when acting as Grey, he said that he learned how to walk better.

“It was like foxtrot, it was very classic,” Dornan said, according to E! News. “I was really struggling with it, and the dance teacher said, ‘you know what you need to do. Just think about it as walking’, and I was like ‘okay.”

He added: “And I’m 31-years-old, literally the first thing you learn in life is to walk. And I was like, ‘that’s funny. I’m not great walking.'”

The film will be released Feb. 13, 2015. It finished production several weeks ago.

Last week, it was reported that “Fifty Shades” book trilogy sold more than 100 million copies.

Other series with over 100 million copies sold include “Twilight,” “Harry Potter,” and the Nancy Drew mysteries.

Vintage Books, the publisher, said on Wednesday that “Fifty Shades” reached the milestone.
