Jamie Dornan’s career is definitely on the up and up.  The Northern Irish model-turned-actor nabbed the Christian Grey role in the film adaptation of the steamy novel "Fifty Shades of Grey," now shooting in Vancouver, but he’s taking all the new attention in his stride.

“Look, I wouldn’t waste my time doing something if I didn’t think I had the capability,” he told the new issue of Elle magazine in the U.K.

“I’ve always wanted to act, but a lot of things need to be aligned; you need to get a little luck and you need that platform to prove you can act.”

Dornan, 31, is getting lots of glowing notices for being a perfectly cast Christian Grey, but good or bad, he tends not to read what people think of him.

“I‘m not very active on Twitter and I don’t read stuff when people mention me. I don’t think it’s very healthy. You’ll scroll down loads of good comments until you see something negative, and that’s the only one you’ll take on board,” he said.

The new dad – his wife, British actress Amelia Warner, gave birth to their first child, a girl, in November – admits to a few trigger points that can set him off.  

“Watching Ireland play rugby. I got very angry because we lost – I was heartbroken.  I get bad road rage as well; a lot of swearing!” he says.

He’ll be swearing and doing a lot of other things too when "Fifty Shades" comes to theaters in February of 2015.
