The Fifty Shades Of Grey franchise has been dealt a major blow following claims that leading man Jamie Dornan will not be reprising his role as Christian Grey. The Irish actor was expected to return as the enigmatic corporate executive in Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed, parts two and three in the hugely successful trilogy by British novelist E.L James.
But according to Australian magazine NW Jamie, 32, has reportedly walked away from the plum role because wife of two-years Amelia Warner is uncomfortable with the raunchy sex scenes he shares with co-star Dakota Johnson.
However, a representative for the screen star has said in a statement to E!: ‘All press reports are pure conjecture as the studio has not committed to a sequel as yet.’
