Jamie Dornan on the filming of Belfast’s “Everlasting Love” scene: “An Amazing Feeling”

IN Belfast, author-instructor Kenneth Branagh‘s black and white ode to his childhood, a young boy named Buddy (Jude Hill) escapes from its often turbulent reality through film. One day it’s the effervescent musical Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Canada the next is the classic Western Dinner. It becomes clear that Buddy is idolizing Jamie Dornan‘s Pa as his own version of a movie star despite his overly human flaws.

Dornan says he also adored his father and wanted to project his own dreams onto high-profile stars. “For me, when I was growing up, anyone from Belfast or Northern Ireland did well in films,” says the actor. VF‘s Katey Rich. “The idea that you came from that place and could be in movies was crazy to me. It still is, to be honest.”

Northern Ireland’s own Liam Neeson would become Dornan’s matinee idol. “I remember I was probably more into my teens, early teens, when Liam had really become a big star,” he recalls. “He’s clearly a giant star, almost in another world now with what he’s been doing for the last 15 years with his work.” Dornan has reached his own pace in Hollywood and has even received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Supporting Actor. He talks about his homemade role – and that song scene – in this week’s episode of Little Gold Men.

Elsewhere on LGM, Katey joins the hosts Richard Lawson, Rebecca Ford, and David Canfield for a lively analysis of the Screen Actors Guild Award nominations, including all the biggest snubs and surprises. They also summarize the crazy Golden Globes and discuss Sidney Poitier’s indelible legacy.

Read a partial transcript of the Jamie Dornan interview below.

Vanity Fair: You said when you were on the set, you would ask Kenneth Branagh, “What would your father have done? How was that moment?” And it did not feel like he was prescribing to you what the character was, it felt like guidance.How did he find the balance that you felt empowered with that information and not caught?

Jamie Dornan: It was a lot that he felt like he was telling me whatever information I was seeking from him. He would be like, “Use it the way you want. Absorb it the way you need it to work for you, but as long as Jamie instinctively does what you want to do, I’m happy.” Because he was straight, right from the beginning Belfast, this idea instilled in me, and all of us really, that he wanted us to bring our own mood to it, and we should not try to be a copy of an idea of ​​who his parents were.

The reality, of course, was that we’re playing real people, but it’s a version of them, and it’s not like where you’re playing a real person who’s very famous, and you can imitate them and copy their physicality and their movements, and their tone of voice. That’s not what we’re dealing with, so it was easier just to find a freedom to bring what we instinctively thought was right for these characters.
