Colin | Jamie Dornan
Colin Montgommery has it all. He's young, rich, handsome, intelligent and successful. He lives in New York, ‘on top of the world’. He lives only for his work, has barely a social life, and is willing to go to great lengths to get what he wants. He is a ruthless businessman who does not deviate from his path until he ends up in Flanders, and there he discovers that there is more to life than money and power…
Further casting sessions with Jamie, and possible Isabelles, strengthened my impression that Jamie would be able to act out Colin's deceitful plan, without losing the viewer's sympathy for the main character. Jamie has managed to convey the increasing doubt and struggle of the main character with a lot of nuance and talent.
He's an actor of whom we - of course also by his part in 'Fifty Shades of Grey’ - will hear a lot in the future worldwide, and I am delighted that two Belgian directors, Jakob Verbruggen and myself, might have been at the cradle a great career?"
