Jamie Dornan is worlds away from Fifty Shades as he shows off rugged new look on set of action movie The Tourist

JAMIE Dornan looked a world away from his suited Fifty Shades character as he showed off a rugged new look.

The actor was snapped on the set of action movie The Tourist, in which the heartthrob plays a Brit stuck in the Australian outback, pursued by mystery assailants.

Jamie, 38, was dressed down in jeans and a stained t-shirt as he took a break from filming the new BBC thriller.

With his shaved head and full beard, it was a far cry from his sleek and smooth role as Christian Grey in the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy.

Jamie was seen enjoying a break as scenes were filmed in Flinders Ranges in the South Australian outback.

The run-down petrol station was part of an all-purpose set constructed over the last few weeks.


Cast and crew had moved to the area after briefly filming in Adelaide.

Dornan's character is known only as The Man, who finds himself in the glowing red heart of the Australian outback, being pursued by a vast tank truck trying to drive him off the road.

An epic cat and mouse chase unfolds and the man later wakes in hospital, hurt, but somehow alive. Except he has no idea who he is.

With merciless figures from his past pursuing him, The Man’s search for answers propels him through the vast and unforgiving outback.


Jamie is joined by Danielle Macdonald as Helen Chambers, a fledgling Probationary Constable, and Shalom Brune-Franklin as Luci, a waitress who’s swept into The Man’s journey for answers.

Meanwhile Hugo Weaving stars as Agent Lachlan Rogers, one of the most highly regarded detective inspectors in Australia, leading Major Crime for the state police.

Speaking about his new role, Jamie said: "The Tourist are some of the most exciting scripts I’ve ever read.

"I can’t wait to go to Australia with such a talented group of people.”
