Jamie's revelations a credit to the home-grown film star
Many people view Hollywood stars as people who live gilded lives or else are authors of their own self destruction.
Not many are regarded as sensitive people who have faced the same trials as many of their fans. But Jamie Dornan revealed in recent days how the death of his mother when he was 16 and the loss of four friends a year later sent his life spiralling out of control.
He was a young man from a well-to-do family, yet he was unable to cope with those devastating blows. However, it is to his credit that he turned his life around and has become an acting superstar. Sometimes life can be as equally dramatic as events on the silver screen.
