Fifty Shades of Grey actor Jamie Dornan had a tragic past


Fifty Shades of Grey star Jamie Dornan has had a difficult life. He lost his mother to pancreatic cancer when he was a teenager, and soon after lost four of his best friends in a car crash. Now, at the height of his career, his father is battling for his life.

Jamie’s dad Jim spoke with The Mirror. “Jamie’s ­incredibly sensitive,” he said. “If somebody’s hurting, he will hurt the most. Watching his mother die of pancreatic cancer over a year and a half made him a very soulful boy.”

He was only 16 years old when he lost his mom and his best friends. Now he’s facing losing his father. “Jamie’s first words when I told him I had leukaemia were, ‘You’re going to be OK dad, aren’t you?’ He gets on with things – a deep, thinking person,” his dad said. “He and his then girlfriend gave me a present they’d made me together. It was a little blue and yellow ceramic plate that said ‘Hope’. That’s the colours of our favourite football team, Bangor Football Club.”

Jim, who lives with second wife Samina, added: “At first I was very afraid and ill. But Jamie flew home a lot, he’d fetch me to watch gigs with his band, Sons of Jim.”
