“Fifty Shades of Grey” hasn’t even hit theaters yet, and Jamie Dornan already has a legion of fans. But anyone lusting after the leading man will be disappointed to know that he is off the market. The actor who plays Christian Grey has a wife, Amelia Warner.
Who is the lucky Amelia Warner? Like Dakota Johnson’s reported boyfriend, Warner is a musician. She is signed to Island Records under the name Slow Moving Millie, but she hasn’t released any music since her 2011 album, “Renditions.” Her second single was a cover of the Smiths’ “Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want,” a version approved of by Morrissey himself. “Morrissey said it was delightful, and Johnny Marr thinks it’s great,” Warner told the Telegraph.
Warner was also an actress, but she quit in her mid-20s. “It wasn’t fulfilling. You have no control, there is no responsibility, you go to the audition, and you either get the part or you don’t – that’s as much choice as you have,” Warner said. “Then a year later you see the end product and you can be in a completely different film from the one you thought you were making. It started to get really frustrating.”
Yet her dislike of acting never kept her from dating actors. Previously, Warner was in a relationship with a different Irish thespian, Colin Farrell. The two had a marriage ceremony when Warner was 19, but it wasn’t legally binding, the Daily Mail reports.
She legally married Dornan in April 2013 and gave birth to their daughter in November 2013, People reports. In the March print edition of Glamour (via the Mirror), Dornan said, “You know, my wife and I want more babies.” Of course, Dornan will have to balance his family with his career. “Fifty Shades of Grey” director Sam Taylor-Johnson confirmed that the book’s sequels would also be adapted for the silver screen.
“Fifty Shades of Grey” hits theaters Friday.
