JAMIE Dornan has revealed that he has been left scarred by playing serial killer Paul Spector in the hit BBC Two series The Fall.
The Belfast-set drama follows the story of a husband and father who is a psychopath and serial killer, but portrays himself to be socially competent on the surface.
Speaking at the launch of the second season of The Fall, in which he co-stars alongside Gillian Anderson who plays DSI Stella Gibson, Dornan said: “You can’t fail to be left slightly scarred by inhabiting someone like that for two seasons.
“I do carry elements of him with me in a worrying way. I find him relatable … I have a deep understanding of him and why he is why he is.
“He had such distaste for everything. You do carry some of that anger and hatred in you a little bit, especially towards the end of a few months playing him.”
