From mystery man to Mr Shades of Grey - who is Jamie Dornan?

Little more than a year ago, no one had heard of Jamie Dornan. Then one chilling and explosive performance as a sexy serial killer in BBC drama The Fall , and he was the hottest actor in the country.

So hot, in fact, that when Hollywood desperately needed to find a male lead for the biggest new film franchise in years - the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy - Jamie was the man they turned to.

But who is the celluloid Christian Grey? Who is the real Jamie Dornan?

In this compelling portrait of the actor, musician and model, we discover his Northern Irish roots and what first drew him to acting - could it have anything to do with film and Hollywood being in the family's blood? We also learn of the tragedy in his childhood and of the relationship - with superstar Keira Knightley - which broke his heart. And what it was like playing a serial killer for months on end and
then transforming himself into every woman's ultimate fantasy - as damaged, dashing Christian Grey.

For anyone who wants to see the star of Fifty Shades of Grey laid bare, the Shades of Desire is for you - an up-close and personal encounter with a man who seems to have stepped out of a dream.
