by - 7:03 AM

In a film where you have to act in an extremely intimate setting, it’s good that you and Dakota Johnson get on well.
Jamie: We are very fond of each other. Dakota and I had to have chemistry to make this work from the get-go, and now we will continue to be friends despite it coming to an end. We have gone through this journey together. We truly understand what that has meant. I believe we will always have each other’s back, precisely because of the impact these roles have had on our careers and our personalities. It is quite a bond that lasts forever. 

There must be moments where you’d just burst out laughing, surely?
Jamie: We have to! I wouldn’t do this job if I didn’t have fun at work. I remember we couldn’t stop laughing during the wedding scene, when we realized that the same guy who was with us in the elevator sequence of the first movie was sitting there front row. Life is too short and you have to enjoy It. Dakota and I make each other laugh far too easily. You have to respect your job, but also have fun, because we. Are actors and our mission is to entertain people.

So, how are you going to do that if you are not even capable of enjoying yourself? That goes for every job. My father was a surgeon, but he never took himself too seriously and is one of the funniest people I have ever met.
