Jamie Dornan’s Christian Grey Walk

Dakota Johnson and Jamie DornanJamie Dornan changed the way he walks while filming Fifty Shades of Grey.

The Northern Irish actor decided to improve his strut after a dancing instructor on the set informed he looked awkward and was "quite bouncy," and applies his new heel-to-toe technique every day.

"So basically, I've always had a complex with the way I walk. I've not always been told I've got a bad walk, but someone's always commented on my walk. It's always been a bit like, 'alright. That's how you walk?'" the 31-year-old former model said.

The actor, who welcomed his first child, a baby girl, with wife Amelia Warner in December, made the discovering while taking dancing classes before shooting a scene for the film, during which his character Christian Grey twirls Anastasia Steele, played by Dakota Johnson, around the dance floor:

"It was like foxtrot, it was very classic. I was really struggling with it, and the dance teacher said, 'You know what you need to do. Just think about it as walking,' and I was like 'Okay.' And I'm 31-years-old, literally the first thing you learn in life is to walk. And I was like, 'That's funny. I'm not great walking.'"

The instructor had a simple solution for him told him to think about "heel-to-toe." Jamie added, "No one ever told me that! I was always toe-to-more-toe! Now I just apply that every day, when I'm walking around."
