8 times Jamie Dornan reached peak Nordie

The world’s hottest man, keeping it real.


JAMIE DORNAN IS the hottest man in the world, according to Heat Magazine.

He’s proudly flying the flag for Northern Ireland, despite playing American billionaire Christian Grey in Fifty Shades of Grey.

Here are some of the ways he stays true to his Nordie roots…

1. The way he says ‘darlin’

Dornan’s character in The Fall, Paul Spector, refers repeatedly to his young daughter and his wife as ‘darlin’ as only a Belfast man can.
