Fans of Fifty Shades of Grey are anxiously waiting for Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) and Anastasia Steele’s (Dakota Johnson) return in Fifth Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed.
While the promotional trailer for Fifth Shades Darker does confirm Jamie Dornan is continuing his role as Christian Grey, speculation has started to swirl regarding whether or not he would retain the role for the third installment. In fact, iTech Post speculated that Jamie Dornan’s wife Amelia Warner could be jealous of his role in the three films. Could he be walking away from the role because of his wife?
Did the film cause drama for Dornan and his wife?
Considering how many reports there were of a sizzling romance brewing between Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan thanks to the movies, it isn’t too much of a stretch for people to think Amelia Warner may be jealous of her husband’s role in the film. Some reports even claimed the jealousy of Jamie Dornan’s wife towards his relationship with Dakota Johnson had gotten so bad that he and his wife were going to get a divorce. These, however, turned out to be nothing more than rumors.
