    While Jamie Dornan may have "no idea" whether Fifty Shades of Grey is going to change his life (although the answer is undoubtedly yes), it seems that the 31-year-old hunk has returned to his daily routine for the time being.

    The sexy actor touched down in Ireland, where he was spotted enjoying a rare day off, spending his afternoon by cheering on his favorite rugby team at Aviva Stadium in Dublin. 

    Eager fans quickly spotted the celeb, who has returned to his home of Northern Ireland to film the second series of his hit BBC show The Fall. Doran, who attended the game with a pal, was happy to take pics for a few lucky admirers, particularly after his team crushed Italy with a score of 46-7 on Saturday.

    One photo of the new dad and his friend was uploaded to a social media fan site with the caption, "New photo in the rugby #JamieDoran," while another fan enthusiastically shared her own pic. "well look who i found after our rugby match today @JamieDornan1 - c'mon Ireland #50ShadesofGrey #thefall #lovehim," she wrote.

    The Northern Irish stud sported a bright red North Face jacket in both photos, flashing a subtle smile while showing off his sexy features. His scruffy beard has fully returned—he previously sported a clean-shaven look on the Fifty Shades set—and he appeared comfortable and at ease after watching his team pull off their big win.

    Dornan has returned to his hometown after spending the about last three months in Vancouver filming the highly anticipated erotic flick, based on E.L. James' best-selling BDSM trilogy and also starring Dakota Johnson. They wrapped filming on Feb. 21 and the film is set to hit theaters on Feb. 13, 2014.

    In addition to watching the rugby match, which Dornan has previously admitted is one of his favorite pastimes, the thesp also visited a pub, where he enjoyed a beer and posed for pics with fans.

    "I mean, look, we're in a really powerful position that 90-plus million people have read the book, so if like a third—I mean, a hundredth of those people—that's successful if they go see the film," Dornan recently said during an appearance on The Graham Norton show when asked if he thought Fifty Shades of Grey will change his life. "It's a nice position to be in, but I have no idea what it's gonna do."

    Well, based on the endless fangirls, it's safe to say his role as Christian Grey is already making many hearts melt.
