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.

Jamie Dornan in Anthropoid

"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."

He was intrigued by the idea of playing real-life rebel Jan Kubis, and he approached the role carefully. "People have different ways and means of researching characters and getting into the mindset of who they're going to play," he explains. "Sometimes you do things that you feel are right to embody a character and sometimes you push limits. Everyone has their own approach to it. It can always be different. With this particular project, think there are things about Jan that will make sense to me personally without having to dig too far. He is a man with a mission to carry out and it's a mission for the right reasons. I feel Jan's the closest character I've played to myself."

Throughout the production, director Sean Ellis (Metro Manila) worked to keep everything authentic, including a sequence involving a suicide bomb. "We felt a strong obligation to tell the story in a correct manner," Dornan says. "So I think the idea that this movie encourages suicide terrorism is outlandish and pretty ridiculous. We made a movie that sticks to the facts as much as possible. People were willing to die for their country, and that's something people still hold today in certain conflicts."

And of course, Dornan is now heading back to play Christian Grey for the sequels Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed. "I don't really view my career in that sense that I've done this type of film or that I have to do that type of film," he says. "You're drawn to the projects for a variety of reasons. Usually the script, a director and a character you can bring something interesting to."
