NEWCASTLE?BORN former Byker Grove actor Charlie Hunnam will be replaced by former model Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey in the film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey.
The Northern Irish actor - best known for playing a serial killer in BBC2's The Fall and appearing in Calvin Klein adverts - will play the lead after Hunnam backed out of the project citing family commitments.
"I've got some family stuff I have to tend to," Hunnam, whose father died in May, said. "So when I wrap the show (Sons of Anarchy) I am going to go to England and see my people."
