Actor quits lead role in follow up movies after his partner Amelia admits ‘discomfort’ with raunchy sex scenes.

The Fifty Shades Of Grey franchise has been dealt a major blow following claims that leading man Jamie Dornan will not be reprising his role as Christian Grey.

The Irish actor was expected to return as the enigmatic corporate executive in Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed, parts two and three in the hugely successful trilogy by British novelist E.L James.

But according to Australian magazine NW Jamie, 32, has reportedly walked away from the plum role because wife of two-years Amelia Warner is uncomfortable with the raunchy sex scenes he shares with co-star Dakota Johnson.

Jamie recently spoke of his wife’s discomfort in an interview with the Evening Standard.
