Jamie Dornan Starrer ‘The Tourist’ Begins Production On Season 2

Jamie Dornan’s star “The Tourist” went into production in season 2 in Dublin, Ireland, with Dornan reprising his role as a car crash victim suffering from amnesia and struggling to piece together his past.

Danielle Macdonald also returns for Season 2 as Helen Chambers, a trainee police officer trying to help Dornan regain his memories while Greg Larsen reprises his role as Ethan Krum.

Joining Dornan, Macdonald and Larsen for the second season are Conor MacNeill (“The Fall”), Olwen Fouéré (“The Texas Chainsaw Massacre”), Francis Magee (“Justice League”), Mark McKenna (“Sing Street”), Diarmaid Murtagh (“Vikings”) and Nessa Matthews (“Neon”).

This time the story moves from the Australian Outback to Ireland where Elliot (Dornan) and Chambers attempt to rediscover Elliot’s roots. But they soon find themselves in the crosshairs of a rivalry between the McDonnell family and the Cassidys as they are drawn into Elliot’s dangerous past life.
