Getting cast in Fifty Shades Of Grey AFTER they had already announced a leading man had to feel like getting that last Golden Wonka Ticket!
And after Charlie Hunnam dropped out, that's exactly what happened for Jamie Dornan!
The Irish actor was so wired after his audition that he couldn't sleep a wink! So while his pregnant wife slept upstairs, Jamie just nervously watched Storage Wars on the couch! He says:
"I was sort of pretending I wasn’t waiting, but the phone was in my hand, halfway to my ear."
So when the call finally came, how did Jamie react to being cast as one of the biggest sexual icons of modern literature? Better than some! He says:
"There was a slight fear. But beyond anything else, I was really f**king excited."
That's good to hear! We're not sure the fans' hearts could take another letdown! Especially after getting their hopes up with such a fierce first look at the characters!
