Jamie Dornan Talks THE FALL Season 2, Researching Serial Killers and more

Great interview done by

Because Season 2 of the crime thriller The Fall is available on Netflix on January 16th, show stars Gillian Anderson and Jamie Dornan, along with creator Allan Cubitt, were on hand at the TCA Winter Press Tour. Set in Belfast, Northern Ireland, the story of the first season continues with Detective Superintendent Stella Gibson’s (Anderson) pursuit of serial killer Paul Spector (Dornan). The stakes are higher and the risks are greater, and the more Spector taunts and provokes Gibson, the closer she comes to capturing him.

During the Netflix presentation, actor Jamie Dornan talked about what he did to get inside the mind of a serial killer, his research, having to make the best of intense scenes, whether he could return for a third season, why he likes to binge watch, being drawn to complicated characters, whether he’d like to play James Bond, if he might ever return to Once Upon a Time, and his upcoming film, The 9th Life of Louis Drax. Check out what he had to say after the jump.

Question: Paul Spector is a complex character who’s a serial murder that’s also tender with his daughter. What did you have to go through to play him?

JAMIE DORNAN: I think you’ve really got to cling to what makes sense to you. Obviously, I’m not a serial murderer in my real life, so that’s where you have to delve into and do all the research. But, you have to find something likable in him. I do think there are qualities to him that I wouldn’t say I admire, but that I think make him somewhat normal and that we can all understand, like being a relatively good professional and being somewhat of a good father, and I don’t think a terrible husband, for the most part. So, you have to find something human in him that makes sense to you.

What sort of research did you do to take on this role?

DORNAN: Early on, Allan [Cubitt] sent me this list of really horrible literature to read, like Inside the Mind of a Serial Killer. So, I read a few books like that and, more specifically, books on Ted Bundy. There’s so much stuff available online these days, of things like that. So, I watched endless interviews with guys like Bundy, and tried to get inside the mind of these guys, and tried to work out what it is that makes them the way they are, and what leads them to do such heinous things.
