I’ve al­ways been shy: Jamie Dor­nan

Hindustan Times (Chandigarh) - City - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Ac­tor Jamie Dor­nan is very “shy” and feels more con­fi­dent when he’s work­ing than in reg­u­lar life.

“I’ve al­ways been shy, par­tic­u­larly at school. But as you grow up, you open up more, es­pe­cially when you have kids. I still don’t think I’m very con­fi­dent. I’m po­lite, though, which helps you get through un­com­fort­able sit­u­a­tions be­cause most peo­ple re­spond well to man­ners,” says the Fifty Shades of Grey star. “Or I’ll talk to my­self to get psyched up, es­pe­cially if I have to do any sort of pub­lic speak­ing. Some­times, I just talk non­sense right up un­til the event to take my mind off any­thing that’s about to hap­pen.”

The ac­tor says, “When you’re act­ing, you’re hid­ing be­hind a char­ac­ter and, even though a film or TV [show] will even­tu­ally be seen by the masses, in that given mo­ment of film­ing, it’s very in­ti­mate.

“It’s just you, the other ac­tors and the crew in the dark fringes around you.”
