Fifty Shades of Grey star Jamie Dornan has revealed he considered “running away” from the set of his forthcoming movie Endings, Beginnings.

For the film, Dornan, along with co-stars Shailene Woodley (The Descendents) and Sebastian Stan (Avengers: Endgame), had to improvise a large amount of the dialogue.

Speaking to Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford on the ITV chat show This Morning, Dornan described the proposition as “terrifying”.

“The first night I thought about running away, I was terrified,” he said.

According to the actor, some of his fellow cast-members arrived on set before he did, and were already “in the groove of it”.

“I was so terrified I thought about running away,” he claimed.

Endings, Beginnings tells the coming-of-age story of Daphne, played by Woodley, as she experiences a year of love and heartbreak.

The film is released in the UK digitally on Friday, 7 August.

Dornan is best known for his portrayal of Christian Grey in the film adaptation of EL James’s erotic bestseller, Fifty Shades of Grey (as well as its two sequels).

Fifty Shades was at the centre of controversy recently as Labour MP Harriet Harman claimed that the famously racey novels had provided men a “grisly opportunity” to use the so-called “rough sex defence” in court.
