Jamie Dornan and his wife Amelia Warner had a tearful goodbye as they prepared to leave the Canadian west coast city this weekend with Fifty Shades Darker film crew are moving onward to France. The Irish actor and his family has made Vancouver their home since April so it’s natural that his wife felt a little nostalgic as she bade the beautiful city farewell.
“After five long months in Vancouver, the Fifty Shades Of Grey cast are packing their bags and heading off to France,” reports Daily Mail. “And it was an emotional goodbye for Jamie Dornan and his wife Amelia Warner, who have made the Canadian city their home during filming. Jamie was seen consoling Amelia as the pair prepared to say farewell to the place.”

Also the fact that she gave birth to their second baby daughter in mid March explains why she may be feeling more emotional and raw than usual.
But their next stop is even more exciting than Vancouver. Being able to be in France with all his family means that Jamie Dornan is providing an excellent opportunity for them to live in one of the most beautiful places on earth.
Amelia Warner will have a friend in Fifty Shades Darker female lead Dakota Johnson. They have been hanging out in Vancouver, whenever the schedule allowed the 26-year-old Los Angeles native, while Jamie worked.
“The 26-year-old met up with Fifty Shades co-star Jamie Dornan’s wife Amelia Warner,” reports Just Jared. “The week before, Dakota and Jamie were spotted filming scenes for one of the the films with Brant Daugherty, who plays Sawyer in the third movie, Fifty Shades Freed.”

Despite the fact that Dakota has to shoot many sexy scenes with her husband, Amelia did not seem to let that affect their budding friendship.
“Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson were spotted kissing on the Vancouver set of the Fifty Shades films on Monday,” reports the Daily Mail. “The 34-year-old actor and the actress, 26, are in the midst of filming both the second and third movie in the hit franchise — Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed. During the kissing scene, Jamie, who plays Christian Grey, placed his hands on Dakota’s waist and leaned in for a smooch.”

Things are working out well for the new father in both his family life and career. His latest movie is gaining momentum in film festivals, which means that he might not have to keep making blockbusters.
“The new Jamie Dornan movie The Siege of Jadotville has proven to be a massive success at the Galway Film Fleadh,” reports RTE.

“This is the first official viewing of the film,” a spokesperson of the film festival said, according to the same report. “The demand for tickets was phenomenal and we could’ve sold out the venue three times over. Unfortunately, Jamie Dornan isn’t available to attend the screening, but that hasn’t stopped the phone from ringing constantly with inquiries for tickets that are long sold out.”
But family comes first for Fifty Shades Darker actor. He has expressed in many occasions that he is first and foremost a father before anything else.
“It’s amazing. I love fatherhood,” he said, according to British Vogue. “These last couple of years have been quite something. But we’re enjoying it.”
He also went on to explain that “People are so f**king down about having kids.” He explained, according to Vogue, that he was “discouraged by people’s attitude,” but he found energy in people who said having a baby was “the best thing” and that he was “going to love it.”
His Twitter profile even boldly proclaims this sentiment. His blurb reads, “Father. Husband. Actor. Bad Golfer.”
Do you think his wife Amelia will like France as much as Vancouver?
