He's famous for Fifty Shades Of Grey - but even in monochrome styling, Jamie Dornan (33) still manages to look like a leading man.

Sporting a head wound and wielding a pistol, the Co Down actor got on his bike for his new film, Anthropoid, in Prague in the Czech Republic. The Second World War thriller also stars Cillian Murphy.

The movie centres on the plot to kill SS beast Reinhard Heydrich, one of the architects of the Holocaust. Two soldiers from the Czech Army in exile were trained by the British and parachuted into their homeland on a mission - codenamed Anthropoid - to assassinate Heydrich.

Jamie's character Jan Kubis is one of the two assassins who fatally wounded Heydrich in 1942. They took their own lives later after being cornered and besieged in a church.

The Nazis took revenge and slaughtered 5,000 people from two villages in the aftermath.
