The pair teamed together for another round of S&M romance in 'Fifty Shades Darker'.
When you go into a film series like that of 'Fifty Shades Darker', you have to expect that there's going to be a lot of sex scenes - and not just as a sideline. They are not a great many actors' favourite thing to shoot, but for Jamie Dornan, his connection with his co-star got him through it time and time again.

With bright lights shining, the careful scrutiny of the director and cinematographer, and beefy sound guys eating sandwiches in the background, you can understand why intimate scenes are never the most fun bits to shoot of a movie - especially if you happen to be in a relationship. However, 'Fifty Shades Darker' is branded as an erotic thriller, so there was no room for awkwardness between Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson who played Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele in the film.

When Ana and Christian had their first fateful meeting, neither party knew much about the real person they were meeting. Christian didn't know just how naive Ana really was and Ana didn't quite understand just how dark Christian's thoughts ran. Though from completely different backgrounds and living entirely different lives, the pair were attracted to one another and they began a relationship - one mainly brought about after Christian seducing Ana, his latest younger woman. As dark secrets were uncovered, it became known to Ana that Christian was into BDSM. Still wishing to go ahead with the relationship, Ana finds out just how far Christian is willing to go to get his thrills but realises that she can't be with a man who inflicts that level of pain on someone they care about.
Time passes, Christian continues with his business lifestyle and Ana starts a new job at a publishing house and the former lovers reunite whilst at an exhibition of photography put on by one of Ana's friends. Christian begins to realise that his feelings for Ana run deeper than the usual dominant / submissive roles that usually define his relationships. With Ana now setting the rules, the pair begin a true relationship but as stories about Christian's past are revealed and Ana is introduced to some of the women that involve his past, neither party know exactly how they'll make their relationship work without sacrificing certain aspects.
Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson reprise their roles as Christian and Ana respectively. Kim Basinger is introduced to the plot as Elena Lincoln a lady Ana nicknames Mrs. Robinson after learning that she seduced Christian whilst still of a young age. Whilst Rookie Blue actor Eric Johnson is cast as Jack Hyde and Bella Heathcote as Leila Williams.
Outside the Czech Republic, few people know about Operation Anthropoid, a spy mission in 1943 Prague to assassinate a top Nazi official. Certainly the material is perfect for a big-screen thriller, and filmmaker Sean Ellis (Metro Manila) has filmed it with a documentary-style urgency that's edgy and exciting. He also has a sharp attention to detail, so the film is bracingly realistic, carrying a strong emotional kick in the final act.
In 1938, Western Europe's leaders handed Czechoslovakia over to Hitler when he promised not to start a war. But of course he invaded Poland the following year. So in 1941, the British military parachutes a team of Czech exiles back into their country to help the resistance. Two of these men, Jan and Josef (Jamie Dornan and Cillian Murphy), are on a secret mission to kill Reinhard Heydrich, the third in Nazi command after Hitler and Himmler. Known as the Butcher of Prague for his ruthless methods, it was Heydrich who devised the plan to exterminate the Jews. The resistance leader (Toby Jones) offers assistance for this mission, while two young women (Charlotte Le Bon and Anna Geislerova) pose as Jan and Josef's girlfriends. But with heavy security around Heydrich, carrying this off is not going to be easy.
Ellis impressively manages to tell this story without present-day hindsight, seeing all sides of the situation from the perspective of the people involved. In other words, it's not just a matter of killing a historical villain: everyone knows that the repercussions of such an act would be horrific as the Nazis exacted brutal revenge. But they also knew that, within this small window of time, they had a chance to deliver a serious blow to the enemy. Ellis structures this carefully, building up to the assassination in a way that develops almost unbearable levels of suspense. The complexity of each scene is remarkable, and the film's final act is a stunning explosion of desperate violence.

Since leaping into the A-list with Fifty Shades of Grey in 2015, Jamie Dornan has stayed busy, continuing his role in the acclaimed TV series The Fall and starring in three movies this year.
Still to come are the creepy mystery The 9th Life of Louis Drax and the 1960s mercenary action movie Jadotville. In the mean time, there's the World War II thriller Anthropoid, based on the true story of the Czech resistance fighters who plotted to assassinate Reinhard Heydrich, the Nazi's third in command after Hitler and Himmler.
"The first I learned of Operation Anthropoid was when I read the script," Dornan says. "I was blown away by it! I find it fascinating that a story of that magnitude can exist and you could not know about it. It's a very important story to be told and one I wanted to be involved in."

Reinhard Heydrich was one of the fiercest anti-Semitic officers in the Nazi army. He authored the Final Solution plan which detailed the extermination of Jews throughout Europe and was the third most powerful member of The Nazi Party only surpassed by Hitler and Heinrich Himmler. Heydrich's reputation as one of the most dangerous and darkest officers in the regime was known throughout Europe.
Having been appointed as the head of the army in Czechoslovakia, Heydrich did his best to distance himself from any possible threat, the resistance army were few and far between and were barely operational and Heydrich's control of the region was continually strengthening.
Two Czech soldiers who were living in exile find themselves as the most important people in a mission to assassinate Heydrich. Their mission is called Anthropod and they have been trained by the British military to go into Prague and end Heydrich's reign, which was so brutal he was nicknamed The Butcher Of Prague.
