Jamie Dornan reveals he felt uncomfortable filming Fifty Shades in France following the Bastille Day attack.
The actor, as well as the cast and crew of Fifty Shades Freed, were filming on location in the south of France when a man plowed his truck through a crowd in Nice, killing 84 people. However, following the attack, it was business as usual on the set and Dornan admits that it didn’t feel right.
“It was, as you can imagine, a bloody awful situation,” he told ComingSoon.net. “You’d be affected by it wherever you were in the world.” Dornan also revealed that he was obliged to work the next day. “Then you have the strange thing of the next day still trying to make a movie that’s costing millions of dollars to put together,” he continued. “There’s this contractual obligation to work the next day, which is a very strange environment to work in.”
“It felt very frivolous and wrong to be making something as silly as a f–king movie the day after something like that happened,” Dornan added.
He and Dakota Johnson will reprise their roles as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele for the Fifty Shades of Grey sequel, due out next year.
