Jamie Dornan claims he isn't very good at "selling himself" in auditions

Jamie Dornan claims he isn't very good at "selling himself" in auditions.

The 'Fifty Shades of Grey' actor has admitted that he struggles when trying out for a role because he doesn't think he comes across well.

Talking about his attempt to get a part on the television series, 'The Fall', Jamie said: "I'm not very good at auditions, I don't sell myself well. I didn't do a good audition for 'The Fall'. But the show's writer, Allan Cubitt, saw something in me. I think he had to work pretty hard to convince everyone else.

"'The Fall' changed my life - that's not an overstatement."

The 'Fall' writer admits he could see "potential" in the hunky star that went beyond his handsome face.

Allan told Britain's Vogue magazine: "I guess I saw his potential and didn't let anything else stand in my way. You only need to meet Jamie once to realise that he has a huge amount going for him beyond being physically attractive."

Jamie recently admitted shooting sex scenes with Dakota Johnson for 'Fifty Shades of Grey' was "strange work", but he had no problem getting intimate on camera.

He said: "I'm not really fearful of that stuff. It's just work. It's strange work, sure, but it's still work. I just get on with it."

He even revealed that his father had encouraged him to take on the role of Christian Grey, as he added: "[Dad] was all for it. I don't come from a cagey family. We're fairly liberal."
