Jamie Dornan Says His Role in ‘The Fall’ Is ‘Brutal Headspace’

Jamie Dornan is apparently back in Belfast, Ireland, filming season two of The Fall for BBC with Gillian Anderson.

In The Fall, Jamie plays a serial killer, Paul Spector, and Gillian is the law enforcement officer assigned to hunt down the killer.

It is a pretty grisly series, but hailed as being the best BBC has seen for awhile.

The series has won awards for writing and it was announce that Jamie Dornan has been nominated for this year’s breakthrough award at the 40th annual Broadcasting Press Guild Awards.

Contact Music reported that Jamie Dornan, “Repeatedly apologised to his female co-stars in grisly Tv drama The Fall because he felt guilty for subjecting them to his character’s creepy behaviour.”

He told U.K. talk show host Graham Norton, “I was doing the creepiest things imaginable so I kept apologising to them. It wasn’t easy for them and I was very aware of how hard it was so I kept saying sorry during horrible scenes.”

He also admits the role is tough on his mental health. “It’s a brutal head space to maintain,” he said. “It’s not healthy, so I made a point of getting out of character – I definitely didn’t want to take him home!”
