Jamie Dornan shares experience of shooting during Nice attack

Actor Jamie Dornan, who was shooting for "Fifty Shades Darker" in Nice on the same day of the attack, says it was awful.

The 34-year-old star opened up about his experience of continuing to shoot the film even after the attack, reported Entertainment Tonight.

"It was, as you can imagine, an awful situation. You'd be affected by it wherever you were in the world," Dornan said.

The "Fifty Shades of Grey" actor said he and his family were closer to the area where the tragedy actually happened.

"Most of the cast and crew were actually staying in Monaco, so there's a little bit of distance there, but my family and I wanted a little bit more space so we were actually staying in Nice.

Dornan described it was difficult for him to shoot the very next day of the attack that left 84 people dead."The first thing everyone has to work out was is everybody safe, is the whole crew and cast safe. Then you have the strange thing of the next day still trying to make this movie that's costing millions of dollars to put together.

"There's this contractual obligation to work the next day, which is a very strange environment to work in," he said.
