Jamie in Total Magazine (October 2016) - New Interview + New Still from 'The Fall' Season 3

HQ Scans



Former underwear model turned TV psycho and cinematic sex symbol, Jamie Dornan doesn't want to be pigeon-holed as Anastasia Steele's hunk. As The Fall returns and Christian Grey goes Fifty Shades Darker, Total Film catches up with an ambitious actor with a busy slate, determined to break out of his sex symbol stereotype.

With his granite features, immaculate suits and buttoned-up emotions, Christian Grey really is Fifty Shades of Grey... at least until he gets into his red room of pain and lets it all hang out. Jamie Dornan, the 34 year old model turned actor who rocketed from Hollywood to play him, makes for a rather more colourful encounter. He is, in short, not at all you expect.

"Someone's just told me I've come runner-up to Tom Hiddleston in 'rear of the year'," he shares, genuinely perplexed (as are we - he should have been number one). "I don't think, as an actor, you set out to achieve that. Truth be told, I pay no fucking notice."

But surely it meant something, in the heyday o modelling for Calvin Klein, Hugo Boss and Armani, to be labelled 'The Golden Torso' by The NewYork Times? "I never had a big plan to do modelling," he shrugs. "I got coerced into it. I never fully committed and my attitude was a big shit. I was always trying to do the acting thing. But I didn't get training. Some of my least favorite actors - boring, predictable - went to RADA and shit. Acting is instinctual." He grins. "Though you'd never see me trying to do Shakespeare anywhere near Stratford because I'm not trained and I'd make a fucking idiot out of myself."

Relaxed, strikingly down to earth and, to put it mildly, garrulous, Dornan delivers such vivid comments damn near every time he opens mouth. "I didn't ask Kim Basinger about 9 1/2 Weeks," he admits when quizzed about teaming up the '80s steam queen on supersequel Fifty Shades Darker.

"I didn't have big enough balls, in the way that maybe someone won't be able to look me in the eye one day and talk about Fifty Shades."

Total Film is looking Dornan in the eye, sort of. Today's chat is happening via Skype. He's sitting in the living room of his rustic house in south-east England, dressed down in a navy blue t-shirt and trying to maintain equilibrium when his two year old daughter wanders into the room naked and starts hammering on the piano. At TF's end, events take an alarming turn when the dog humps the beanbag. There is no time for distractions, however: Dornan has a raft of fascinating projects to tell us about.

First up, released within a week of each other at the start of September, are Anthropoid and The 9th Life of Louis Drax. The former is true-life tale of the daring WW2 mission to assassinate SS General Reinhard Heydrich, third in command of the Third Reich and prime archiect of the Final Solution. Sean Ellis' follow up to his award winning 2013 crime drama Metro Manila, it sees Dornan and Cillian Murphy play, respectively, the Slovakian and Czech soldiers charged with completing the kamikaze mission. The 9th Life of Louis Drax, meanwhile, is a mystery-thriller based on the bestseller by Liz Jensen and directed by Alexandre Aja (Switchblade Romance, Horns). It gifts Dornan the lead role of a comatose boy's doctor who's determined to find out the truth circumstances of the child's 'accidest' -  a quest that takes bizarre turns when reality bleeds into fantasy in a manner not dissimilar to Guillermo del Toro's Pan's Labrinth.

"I'd just seen Metro Manilla before I got sent the script, so it felt like this serendipitous thing," Dornan says of Anthropoid. "I was banging on to my wife about how nuch I'd love work with Sean Ellis. To be honest, it could have been a short film about a man waiting for a number 52 bus. But I do like idea of playing people that actually existed. Fifty Shades is fantasy, fictional, out there..." He laughs, rubs his jaw. "I feel like I want to do real stuff. The guy I played in Marie Antoinette was real but he died years and years ago." Another laugh. "I loved this story. I thought it could touch people. Human characters with human flaws. I was very excited to play someone vulnerable. I'm used to playing people who are controlling."

And Drax? "I'd never read anything like it. Clever and unique. I did think we would have a task on our hands in terms of how to marry the supernatural aspect of it with the straight story. For me, it's again a total depature from anything I've done. And that's what I want to do keep playing characters that are different."

There are exceptions, of course. One of these is Christian Grey, who Dornan last week finished portraying in sequels Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed, shot back to back. The other is the role that accelerated his acting career: serial killer Paul Spector in BBC2's riveting cat and mouse crime series The Fall.

"I knew it was great, based on the scripts," he says. "I had never been up for anything like that. And I'd never had someone see that in me, that I could play menace or darkness. If you come from modelling, you only get offered certain jobs... boyfriend... you know, the usual shit." He pauses. "I actually auditioned for another part. For a policeman. Whatever I did, I convinced them I was a psycopath."

For two series now, Spector - counsellor, family man, slayer of young women - has tormented the coolly charismatic DSI Stella Gibson (Gillian Anderson). The finale of Season 2 suggested that their dance of death was over (no spoilers here). Then came the announcement that both would return in Season 3...

"There's a twisty element to it that you will not see coming," Dornan promises, his word finally slowing as he chooses them carefully. "It's certainly... a very interesting place to take it. I mean, I couldn't believe it when Allan Cubitt, who created it, told me what happens with my character. That's all I can really say."

Fine - he's clearly uncomfortable saying even one word more. But let's just make him really squirm before moving on the Fifty Shades movies: how does it feel to have so many viewers find the character that he describes as a 'sick, sick man' so very, very hot?

The biggest laugh yet. "It says more about them, doesn't it? Fuck, I don't know what to say about really. Look, if he has the effect on people, I would hope that comes more from us trying to give him some kind of charm and making him someone who is relatable, fancy-able, who could live next door to you, who could be your bereavement counsellor, which is all in the story, I hope, I hope." He takes a breath, shudders, and then adds, rather worryingly, "He's the one character I find hard to shake off."

Still, Dornan insists you have to be fearless about full-heartedly embracing such challenging or risque material as The Fall and Fifty Shades. The first Fifty Shades introduced billionaire Christian Grey as he demonstrated his kinks to virginal student Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson), making her blush at both ends. It failed to satisfy reviewers but went all the way at the box office, taking $571m. Fifty Shades Darker is set to penetrate deeper.

"It opens doors in terms of getting a better understanding of why he is the way he is, and why he feels the need to control. But we also get to see more of what the books would say is a 'vanilla relationship'. We get to see more of him and Ana having a regular existence, a relationship. But then things happen along the way to test that..."

One of the things that happens is that Christian's business partner, Elena Lincoln (Basinger), enters the picture - as readers of E.L. James' trilogy of bestselling books will know, she is the older woman who first introduced Master Grey to the pleasures (and pains) of BDSM. But there are key changes behind the camera, too: James Foley (Glengarry Glen Ross, Fear) took over the directorial reins from Sam Taylor-Johnson, who didn't have the smoothest of relationships with E.L. James; and the screenplay was this time penned by James' husband, Niall Leonard (TV shows Wild At Heart and Wire In The Blood). Is it fair to say that the author, like her male protagonist, is something of a control freak?

"These are Erika's babies," Dornan says. "She's very right to have a strong opinion on all Fifty Shades. But Erika and James Foley have a good relationship. They get on very well. He brings a different energy. He's going to put his own stamp on it."

With all this work (there's also Netflix premiere Jadotville, about 155 Irish troops who were besieged by thousands of French, Belgian and Rhodesian mercenaries in the Congo in 1961), you have to wonder if he ever gets a second himself. The answer is no, but mainly because he has two young children with his English actress/musician wife, Amelia Warner.

"I have the quietest family life," he says. "My wife and I were watching a movie last night. We got the kids to bed  and I had a glass of red wine in my hand. I was like, 'Fuck, I don't even think I can finish this. What's the time?' It was 8.30. I was like, 'It's too early to go to bed?' She was like, 'We can't go to bed before nine.' We just about scraped it. I was holding my eyelids open."

Jamie Dornan: sex symbol, leading man, tucked up asleep by 9pm. Like we said - not at all what you'd expect.

New Jamie Quotes from Daily Mirror

On telly he’s hot serial killer Paul Spector from BBC Two’s The Fall. But in real life it seems Jamie Dornan, below left, just wouldn’t have the energy to play cat-and-mouse games with Gillian Anderson. Or anyone else. He says: “My wife and I were watching a movie last night. We’d got the kids to bed and I had a glass of red wine in my hand. I was like, ‘F***, I don’t even think I can finish this. What’s the time?’. It was 8.30.” Suggesting that they hit the sack, she told him they had to make it to 9pm. “We just about scraped it,” he reports. “I was holding my eyelids open.” Rock ‘n’ roll.

Jamie Shared His "Train Delay" Playlist for Shortlist Magazine

Kinky business owner, Irish serial killer and now a neurologist in new movie The 9th Life of Louis Drax, Jamie Dornan has many faces. But now there's one more talent to add to the list: being a curator of some cracking entertainment for when you're bored out of your mind on the train.

TV show: The Sopranos

“I think there’s a generation of people who missed out on The Sopranos the first time around. I came to The Sopranos late and watched all six series in a four-month period about three years ago. It’s the best television that will probably ever be made. The performances are flawless, particularly Gandolfini and Edie Falco. It’s so hard to believe that he’s not a crime boss. Every nuance of both of their performances could be analysed and studied and taught. It’s just total embodiment of a character, which is all you can ask for. It’s just phenomenal in its scale, its scope and its delivery.”

Album: Van Morrison's Astral Weeks

“I simply cannot tire of it. Even yesterday, Madame George came on in the background and I was still moved by it. He’s a very important export of our country. I’d say I have an eclectic taste, but my comfort zone is anything from mid-Sixties to mid-Seventies folk and rock.”

Film: Badlands

“Without Badlands there would be no True Romance. I’m a massive Malick fan, particularly when he sticks to a more linear narrative. I like Badlands because it’s more straightforward; a bit more classic in terms of movie-making. And for me, for my money, Martin Sheen gives my favourite on-screen performance of all time.”

Podcast: This American Life

“I got introduced years ago and I’m always amazed by it still. There’s something about the storytellers they get and the people involved in it.”

Book: The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand

“It is essentially a novel, but people draw a lot of parallels in terms of what it actually represents. It made me feel way more intelligent than I actually am. It just took me, from the moment I started reading it. An incredible piece of writing.” 

App: Pause

“This collects all the great articles from Uncut, Mojo... and has them all in an app, instead of having to buy the magazines. I have a feeling it might be free. It feels like every time I buy an app I have absolutely no idea how much I’m spending.”

New Interview of Jamie and Sarah Gadon on 'The 9th Life of Louis Drax' Set with Collider

While I’ve done a lot of set visits, the one I got to do for Alexandre Aja’s The 9th Life of Louis Drax was extremely unusual. Not only did I get to visit the set on my own when the film was shooting in Vancouver, I got to conduct video interviews with most of the cast. Usually set visits are print interviews and done in large groups, so getting to spend the day watching The 9th Life of Louis Drax get made on my own was a lot of fun and something I’ll never forget.

If you’re not familiar with the thriller, which Summit Premiere and Miramax release in theaters September 2nd, the film centers on a young boy, Louis (Aiden Longworth), who has survived eight near-death experiences, but plunges off a cliff on his ninth birthday. While he survives the fall, he stays in a coma, and it’s up to an intrepid doctor (Jamie Dornan) to find out the truth about what happened to Louis while also happening to fall for Louis’ mother (Sarah Gadon). The film also stars Aaron Paul, Oliver Platt, Molly Parker, and Barbara Hershey. The 9th Life of Louis Drax is based on the novel by Liz Jensen and the script was written by Max Minghella. You can watch the trailer here.

During my interview with Jamie Dornan and Sarah Gadon they talked about how they got involved in the project, if Jamie really did the movie due to the script font, what it’s been like working with Alexandre Aja, how Dornan’s father will always give him notes about the script and character but didn’t on this role, and so much more. What’s great about the video is you can see a lot of fun banter between Dornan and Gadon and it’s pretty clear they were having a lot of fun making Louis Drax.

Check out what they had to say in the video above, and below you’ll find a list of what we talked about. Look for more on set interviews from the set of The 9th Life of Louis Drax in the coming days.

Jamie Dornan and Sarah Gadon:
They talk about who they play and how they got involved in the project.
How Jamie only got involved in the project due to the script font.
How much changed after getting cast.
How Jamie Dornan’s father is a real doctor and if that helped him with the role. Dornan explains how his dad will always give him notes about the script and character but didn’t on this role.
How do they like to work on set and what has it been like working with Alexandre Aja?
They talk about the scene they were just shooting.
How quickly did they know they want to be involved in the project?
Did they watch anything to get ready for the film?
Have they learned anything over the last year or two that they wish they could apply years ago?

Sean Ellis directed the film, which received its world premiere in July as opening night selection of the 51st Karlovy Vary International Film Festival.

Mickey Liddell’s LD Entertainment produced alongside Pete Shilaimon, David Ondříček and Kryštof Mucha of the Czech Republic’s Lucky Man Films.

Jamie Will Attend Alfred Dunhill Links Championship This October + New Interview

The spectators at the 18th green on the Old Course, St Andrews, in the shadow of the distinguished R&A clubhouse, raised their arms in acclamation and roared their delight.

They were saluting one of the shots of the 2015 Alfred Dunhill Links Championship. Not from Ernie Els, Padraig Harrington or Martin Kaymer, as it happened, but from popular film actor Jamie Dornan.

This is one of the joys of the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship. Sporting achievement transcends the professionals and can come from unlikely sources. As Jamie himself says: “You can be hacking around and still be captured by the Sky cameras.”

His feat was to eagle the par-4 18th hole, perhaps the most famous finishing hole in golf. His drive was short of the green and in the Valley of Sin, but his 30-foot putt, up and over the hill, found the hole for the eagle two.

Jamie said at the time: “That’s up there as one of the most amazing feelings of my life. Whatever your standard, you have your moments in golf when you play a great shot, but it’s usually on some dirt track of a course. To do that here at St Andrews, on the 18th, well, that’s the closest I am going to get to winning the Open.”

From Holywood, the same town in Northern Ireland as Rory McIlroy, he added: “It’s a shame Rory wasn’t here to see that, but I’ll be texting him to let him know.”

Reflecting on the shot ten months later, as he looks forward to returning to this year’s Alfred Dunhill Links Championship from October 6-9, he says: “It was my greatest ever sporting achievement. The drive was the better part. The putt was a bit of a fluke.”

Jamie, star of last year’s blockbuster film Fifty Shades of Grey, and widely praised for his portrayal of serial killer Paul Spector in the BBC TV drama The Fall, says he loved every second of his debut as an amateur last year, partnering England’s Danny Willett in the Team Championship, who six months later won The Masters at Augusta.

Did Jamie give him some useful tips for Augusta? “Put it this way, Danny’s game came on immensely after getting to watch me closely over three days. That's all I'll say on that.” Jamie says he only plays around six rounds of golf each year, and although he is a competitive person, playing in the Alfred Dunhill Links is all about having fun.

What lessons did he learn from last year? “A golfer of my level simply can't score well around Carnoustie.”

Of his acting career, he says the film he is most proud of is Anthropoid, and he most enjoyed making the series The Fall. “I appreciate and enjoy every job, but the crew on The Fall are like family to me now.”

Cillian Murphy Talks About Jamie

HB: What was it like working with Jamie Dornan?

CM: We're lucky that we get on very well. We actually have a very similar approach to working, which is that you take the job very seriously and between action and cut, that's where your focus should be. And then there's a lot of levity in between and a lot of good fun. And you know, both being Irish, and we both have young families, we have a lot in common.

HB: You have similar career trajectories as well, each having successful TV shows alongside a film career.

CM: I guess so. But I was making films for a long time before I did Peaky Blinders. It only happened three years ago.

Sean Ellis Talks About 'Anthropoid' and Mentions Jamie

*This interview contains strong spoilers.

Inverse - Why tackle a World War II movie now?

I don’t think there’s any rhyme or reason. I’ve been preparing this since 2001, and I don’t say, “We should get this ready for 2016.” For me it’s about how I’m just obsessed with telling this story. The more I found out about it the more I thought, “This is what I want to make.”

How thorough did you get in your research into Operation Anthropoid before making the film?

Reading lots of books is the start, then looking on the internet. Then you actually go to the places and start interviewing people. You look through documents at the Ministry of Defense, you go to the war museums. You try to get lots of opinions, but the trouble with this story is everyone has an opinion about it. There’s three or four different stories about things that did or didn’t happen. You get all this conflicting information and, in a weird way, you’re a detective trying to piece it together in a way to tell it. What’s truth and what’s not? What feels like truth and what doesn’t?

Operation Anthropoid had been previously told on-screen in films like Operation Daybreak or the Czech film Atentát, but those haven’t been big hits. How did you want to separate your film from the way this story has been told before on-screen?

Filmmaking has changed a lot since those films. You look at them now and they’re dated. It’s a story that needs to continually be told… like 99 percent of the world doesn’t know about it. It’s a chance to tell the world a story that happened in a very culturally specific place but has universal themes. That’s movie-making gold.

What was the casting process like searching for the perfect Jan and Jozef?

They have to work together, so they have to complement each other. We cast Cillian first after he responded well to the script. Once he was in place it was simply: Who is his Jan? I hadn’t seen 50 Shades of Grey, but I had seen Jamie in The Fall and loved him in it, but I thought he was too dark for the role.

We met and talked about his character being a kind of puppy dog to Jozef, and somebody who doesn’t want to go through with it and maybe physically can’t. After that it felt right, so I talked to Cillian who said, “We’re both Irish, and I love him.”

New Video Interview of Jamie and Cillian Murphy with Now This

New Interview of Jamie and Cillian Murphy with The Irish Echo

Douglas, Co. Cork’s Cillian Murphy and Jamie Dornan, who was born in Holywood, Co. Down, say they signed on to star in “Anthropoid” because the movie brings to life an extraordinarily powerful, albeit little-known, chapter in World War II history.

Helmed and co-written by Sean Ellis, the film is based on the true events surrounding the 1942 assassination of Reinhard Heydrich, whom Adolf Hitler once admiringly referred to as the “man with the iron heart.”

Murphy and Dornan play Jozef and Jan, soldiers from the Czechoslovakian army-in-exile, who parachute back into their occupied homeland on a mission to kill Heydrich, one of the high-ranking Nazi architects of the Holocaust, AKA as the “Butcher of Prague,” with the help of local members of the resistance. After the daring move sent a clear message of rebellion to the Nazis, the Czech people were subjected to devastating reprisals.

“I didn’t know anything about this story and it was just a really, really absorbing read from the get-go and then you add the director to that… You kind of go, ‘Wow, this is not a story I’ve heard of and I really believe in the director.’ So, then you’re kind of in,” Murphy told the Irish Echo about “Anthropoid” in a recent sit-down interview in New York.

“There’s something about telling stories that are pieces of history that actually happened that I find all the more compelling and attractive and alluring, I think. But, for me, I couldn’t fail to be moved and totally knocked out by this story of these men and women who were responsible for achieving their goal,” remarked Dornan, who sat beside Murphy during the chat. “Those panic attacks [Jan experienced] and that hesitancy of the situation of feeling very vulnerable and maybe even a bit over your head. As much you like to think you’d be such a man in those situations, the reality is I’d probably be closer to Jan. I’d be absolutely terrified, so I found that very relatable.”

Everyone wants to know what it’s like to work with Jamie Dornan, she said.

Cillian Murphy Mentions Jamie

Nylon - Did you shut yourself off on this shoot?

Pretty much. We were shooting in Prague, which is a beautiful city. It’s a really nice place to be. My family did come over for periods. Given the schedule, it was pretty intense, and we shot very, very fast. It was like eight weeks. It does take over your life, though.

Do you think that short time-span impacted your performance or the film at all?

No. It’s an independent, mid-budget movie. Naturally, you have to shoot as quickly as you can, with availability and all those things. The atmosphere that [director] Sean [Ellis] established is very convivial. Jamie and I have a really good rapport. There’s a lot of laughing. That allows you to explore the darker stuff easier because you’re in a good place.


Esquire - Did you film in the actual church?

We built a life-sized replica. It was extraordinary. In this film studio in Prague there was a full reproduction of that church, which we then blew the shit out of. It was strange because me and Jamie had shot almost the entire movie together and we shot it more or less chronologically. And then I went home while he shot his sequence in the church upstairs and he went home while I shot my sequence in the church crypts downstairs. So they were very separate. But it took about three weeks.

New Interview of Jamie and Cillian Murphy with UPI

Northern Irish actor Jamie Dornan admits he'd be "absolutely terrified" if he found himself in the same circumstances as the character he plays in his World War II drama Anthropoid.

Helmed by Sean Ellis and in theaters now, the film is based on the true events surrounding the assassination of Reinhard Heydrich, the Butcher of Prague, in 1942.

Cillian Murphy and Dornan play Jozef and Jan, soldiers from the Czechoslavakian army-in-exile, who parachute back into their occupied homeland on a mission to kill one of the high-ranking Nazi architects of the Holocaust, with the help of local members of the resistance. After the daring move sent a clear message of rebellion to the Nazis, the Czech people were subjected to devastating reprisals. The war officially ended in 1945.

"There's something about telling stories that are pieces of history that actually happened that I find all the more compelling and attractive and alluring, I think. But, for me, I couldn't fail to be moved and totally knocked out by this story," Dornan recently told UPI in New York. "Those panic attacks [Jan experienced] and that hesitancy of the situation of feeling very vulnerable and maybe a bit over your head. As much as you like to think you'd be such a man in those situations, the reality is I'd probably be closer to Jan. I'd probably be really, absolutely terrified, so I found that very relatable."

New Video Interview of Jamie and Cillian Murphy with NWCN

A significant but lesser known story from World War II is the basis for the intense new drama Anthropoid, starring Cillian Murphy and Jamie Dornan.

The movie is based on a daring plan to drop paratrooper assassins into Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia. The project was a ten-year labor of love for director Sean Ellis.

“The more I tried to find out about it, the more stuff I uncovered,” he said. “It became like this sprawling epic part of history that not many people know.”

Ellis took extra steps toward creating real-life accuracy by filming in many of the actual locations.

“Seeing where these men died, it affects you profoundly,” Murphy said.

The film is a departure for Dornan, who's best known for starring in 50 Shades of Grey as the title character, Christian Grey.

“In a weird way, I wouldn't be anxious at all about being typecast in those kind of roles because there's not many movies about that kind of subject matter, or roles that are similar to him,” Dornan said.

He also put rumors to rest about alleged star sightings, when film crews were in Seattle this past spring.

“We still shot it all in Vancouver but they did a lot of the aerial-like helicopter stuff in Seattle, so the crew went up before we started filming,” he said. “I actually have to say I have yet to be to Seattle.”

New Interview of Jamie with National Post

Jamie Dornan knows how to define the dark side as illustrated by his Fifty Shades of Grey sex fiend in film and his twisted serial killer on the series The Fall. Now he’s giving a real life reluctant war hero a try with his portrayal of Czech freedom fighter Jan Kubis in the WWII film Anthropoid.

Co-written and directed by Sean Ellis after he developed the project for nearly 15 years, the movie recounts Operation Anthropoid. It’s the code name for the 1941 mission of ex-patriots Kubis and Josef Gabchik (Cillian Murphy), who return to Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia. Their assignment is to assassinate high-ranking SS commander Reinhard Heydrich.

At a Manhattan hotel, Dornan, 34, discusses his work on Anthropoid and his career. Here are five key things he had to say.

1. Ellis’ undeniable obsession with the Anthropoid story becomes a Dornan inspiration

“You should always have a certain amount of obsession or at least be bold about what you want to accomplish,” says Dornan. “So I couldn’t fail to be hugely engrossed in the characters and the story, because Sean’s attention to detail went far beyond what he needed to do.”

2. The Dornan way of emoting

The actor says the screenplay indicated decisively that Jan is not the soldier or the killer type, “so I had a clear way into how to play him.”

“Jan was like a little brother to Josef and Jamie understood that almost immediately,” says Ellis.

New Interview of Jamie, Cillian Murphy and Sean Ellis with IndieWire

There are no happy endings in Sean Ellis’ World War II drama “Anthropoid.” But should a new plan to honor the heroes portrayed within the new war drama pan out, the true story’s gruesome history might be forever altered in an unexpectedly positive way.

Ellis’ latest film follows the true story of Czech resistance fighters Josef Gabčík (Cillian Murphy) and Jan Kubiš (Jamie Dornan), who undertook the nearly impossible mission to assassinate SS General Reinhard Heydrich in Prague in 1942. The plan ultimately resulted in the deaths of Kubiš, Gabčík and five other Czech fighters – and while Heydrich didn’t die immediately as planned, he did succumb to his injuries soon after, altering the course of the war forever – and while the soldiers have long been national heroes, over seven decades have passed without a proper burial for their bodies.

Thanks to renewed interest in the unbelievable story of Operation Anthropoid, that could be changing soon.

“Because of this discussion that’s going on, the government have acted on information that they know where the bodies are,” Ellis recently told IndieWire, referencing a recent story by the BBC. “Now they’re going to excavate this grave, and they think that Kubiš and Gabčík are there. Their heads aren’t there, because they were decapitated, but the seven guys, they think, are in this grave.”

A Proper Ending

Per Ellis, should DNA testing prove that the bodies of the seven fighters – and, in particular, Kubiš and Gabčík – are in a mass grave in the Dablice cemetery (located just outside Prague), the Czech government intends to treat them with the utmost of respect.

“They are going to give them a proper burial, with memorials and all the rest of it, because they are the Czech heroes,” the filmmaker said.

New Interview of Jamie and Cillian Murphy with AOL Build

It's one of those stories that's so mind-blowing, you don't expect it to actually be true. But it is.

We're talking about "Anthropoid," the film directed by Sean Ellis and starring Jamie Dornan and Cillian Murphy as two Czech soldiers who plot to assassinate Nazi officer Reinhard Heydrich, one of the highest-ranking German Nazi officials as well as one of the main architects of the Holocaust. And even when their plan implodes, they still succeed -- Heydrich died in Prague in 1942.

The story is powerful. But it goes beyond that.

"What did we take away from the movie? Just friendship, I would say. It's genuine. You don't always get that," says Dornan.

Of course, it's not exactly reciprocated, he jokes. "I've tried Cillian a million times this week and he doesn't answer. He doesn't get back to me. I heard that's the kind of guy he is. And it's true," says Dornan.

But in reality, "We're all genuinely proud of the movie. I'm very proud of Cillian and Sean and a tiny bit proud of myself."

Murphy has starred in such massive productions as "Inception" and "The Dark Knight" for Christopher Nolan, and is currently shooting the equally big-ticket World War II drama "Dunkirk" for the acclaimed director. But "Anthropoid" holds a very special place in his heart.

"Working in film, you go from job to job. You get very intensely involved with people. Sometimes you actually get a genuine friendship out of it. It's very rare," says Murphy.

Even his son, 9, was infatuated with Dornan.

"We do this thing with my kids sometimes: 'So if you're stuck on a desert island, who would you have with you?' My little boy was like, 'Who's the guy you did 'Anthropoid' with, Jamie? I'd take him. He's funny. And the guy from 'Fast & Furious.' Vin Diesel. He can help. You're just there for the comedy," says Murphy to Dornan, who looks faux-outraged.

"I can fight off pirates and (expletive!)" he exclaims.

Case closed.


New Interview of Jamie and Cillian Murphy with WhoSay

Throughout history, there have been many war heroes heralded around the world, with statues and big budget movies dedicated to their harrowing work. However, many other heroic figures end up as side-notes in college textbooks—but their actions lead to some of the biggest moments in human history.

The latest WWII indie thriller Anthropoid tells the story of two of these men, who although only known within a niche group, forever transformed the trajectory of one of the most influential wars of human history. In the film, a pair of World War II Czech rebels, Jan Kubiš and Josef Gabčík, face grave danger in order to assassinate one of the highest ranking Nazi officials, SS officer Reinhard Heydrich. Although they were just two individuals, their actions changed the course of the war.

And who better to play these brave men than arguably two of the biggest names in Hollywood today, Jamie Dornan and Cillian Murphy?

In order to gain more insight into how these two A-list actors transformed into two little recognized war heroes, we talked to both Dornan and Murphy about creating Anthropoid together—and the likelihood of a comedy starring the two of them in the future. Check out our interview with the duo below.

WhoSay: Were you at all familiar with this story beforehand?

Jamie Dornan: I wasn’t familiar with this part of the WWII, and was amazed by how it changed the course of WWII. Obviously it's huge for Czech people, this incident in history, this assassination. It was the highest ranking Nazi ever taken out. It was a revelation to read about it.

WhoSay: How did you guys prepare for your roles?

Cillian Murphy: They were real people, so you have a sense of duty, a sense of responsibility. Their descendants are still around in Prague. We did as much research as was available. [Director/screenwriter] Sean Ellis envisioned this story for like 15 years, so we had a huge amount of research amassed.

New Interview of Jamie with People


You star in the new World War II thriller Anthropoid, about the assassination of a high-level Nazi. Do you consider yourself to be a history buff?

Jamie: I would say no to that! My general history of WWII was sketchy in and of itself. I wasn't the most tuned-in student in history class. But the nice thing about a ture story is that there's plenty of research out there - it was easy to find out information about the operation once I got the job. And I wanted to be as well informed as I possibly could be.
You just finished filming the final two 50 Shades movies. What will you miss the most - and least - about them?

Jamie: I'll miss my friends the most. The people are like family to me, and suddenly I won't be seeing them as much, and that's kind of sad. But I won't miss wearing suits, which I had to do. I don't feel comfortable in them.

What do you do in your downtime? 

Jamie: When I get home from set I usually have a drink! I'm normally so exhausted that a drink is ver much needed at the end of the day. And I'm a big golfer. A lot people don't think it's cool or whatever, but I've grown up playing it. I've spent a large portion of my life defending golf!

New Interview of Jamie with Irish Central

Jamie Dornan isn't just a celebrity, he's a bona fide superstar, but don't imagine he's ever going to let the adulation go to his head. This week he stars alongside Cillian Murphy in the tense World War II thriller Anthropoid. Cahir O'Doherty asks him about new film, his global fame, and whether he still finds time to have the craic between all the premieres, shoots and red carpets.

As Jamie Dornan walks into the AMC Theatre at Lincoln Center in New York in a grey sharp suit with a white shirt open at the collar last week, it's a bit like watching the slow moving eye of a hurricane arrive.

That's because Dornan's found himself at the center of something immense, a white hot level of fame of the kind that doesn't happen very often, and it's hard to tell if he's the cause or the symptom.

Unable to get anywhere near him or the celebrity filled red carpet, young women -- let's call them Dornan's worshipers, because fans seems too small a word for the desperate passion in their eyes -- press up against the glass walls outside hoping for a glimpse of their Northern Irish idol.

Row after row of film actors that no one has heard of – yet – arrive and stand in front of the paparazzi's flash bulbs. Helpfully, we've all been given a tip sheet of their headshots to let us know who's who, and the photographers are already calling out their names.

But although no one says it out loud, today really belongs to the man of the moment, Mr. Fifty Shades of Grey himself.

The other young arriving actors are mostly minnows, trailing in the reflected glory of the great white whale. There's no way for them to compete with the global zeitgeist which Dornan, 34, is riding like a practiced surfer.

Earlier on this morning Dornan touched down at JFK (wearing a designer white t-shirt, slim fit black designer jeans and some stylish Nikes) and within a few short hours he's had his very discreet makeup done for the TV cameras, taped an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and is here at the Lincoln Center AMC for his latest film's premiere.
