Jamie Dornan “followed a woman off the train” to get into The Fall mindset

Yep, it's a wee bit creepy. But we wouldn't say no if it was Jamie

Yep, it's quite a confession , but lovely Jamie Dornan recently revealed to the LA Times that he actually stalked a lady once to get into the mindset of serial killer Paul Spector, his character in The Fall. And these kind of weird admissions are exactly why we love him.

Jamie said: "In the first series, I did do a couple of things to try to get inside [Paul's mind]. On the tube...hang on, can we get arrested for this? This is a really bad reveal. I like, followed a woman off the train one day to see what it felt like to pursue someone like that."

Whoever this lucky lady was, how many people in the world can say they have been pursued by the one and only Jamie Dornan?!

Don't worry though if this is freaking you out, Jamie didn't follow her for long and once she reached her stop, he kept a safe distance: "I'm sort of not proud of myself. But I do honestly think I learned something from it, because I've obviously never done any of that. It was intriguing and interesting to enter that process of 'what are you following her for?' and 'what are you trying to find out?' It felt kind of exciting, in a really dirty way."

We wonder if his next role could include one where he wants to be a magazine editor at a certain heat towers. Directors, are you listening?
