Fifty Shades of Grey star Jamie Dornan may be the toast of Hollywood, but he says he will stay loyal to the TV role that first rocketed him to fame.

The former Calvin Klein model portrayed a serial killer opposite Gillian Anderson in The Fall two years ago.

And the Irish actor, who is set to return to the small screen as creepy Paul Spector next month, credits the BBC series with kick-starting his dizzying rise to stardom.

"I'm a very loyal person and if Allan Cubitt, the creator, wants to keep writing Spector, I'm in," he said.

The second season starts with the killer hiding in a Scottish bolthole and planning his next atrocity.

Jamie said he is delighted the BBC decided to shoot the hit series in Belfast. "I was relieved to read something set in Northern Ireland that didn't directly involve the Troubles," he said.
