Aside from herself, Elva has two siblings, both of them sisters. Her parents are quite strict about the privacy of their kids and thus have refrained from showing them in the media that often.

Here today we shall find out some interesting facts about Elva Dornan so let’s get right into it.

When is Elva Dornan’s Birthday?

She was born on February 16th, 2016 in London, England, and celebrates her birthday in March of every year. Her parents, Jamie Dornan and Amelia Warner didn’t reveal the birth of their second child until a week later when E! News first broke the news.

Elva has British nationality and belongs to the White ethnicity. We’re sure many of you’re quite eager to know the meaning behind Jamie Dornan’s second child so we have the answer. Her name is of Irish origin meaning white, noble, or bright.

Besides, Elva’s birth was kept in secrecy for a long time. Jamie and Amelia first revealed they were expecting their second child in October of 2015.

All three Dornan siblings are really close with each other. Though their parents rarely ever appear with them in the public, they have shared a handful of photos with their kids.

Her Father is a big star

Elva Dornan’s father Jamie doesn’t need any introduction. From his work in his different genres, he gained worldwide prominence. Initially, he gained fame as a model and modeled for big fashion labels like Hugo Boss, Dior Homme, and Calvin Klein.

He later decided to give acting a go, though at first, it was quite difficult. Not only did Jamie have to work in a whole different field, but he also had to fight the stigma of a ‘model turned actor.’

Jamie made his debut with the movie Marie Antoinette, directed by Sofia Coppola. He gained initial fame after he starred in the 2011 series, Once Upon a Time in which he played the role of Sheriff Graham.

Nevertheless, Elva’s dad became a worldwide sensation after he starred in the Fifty Shades trilogy. In the movie, he starred alongside Dakota Johnson.

In addition, she also featured in the 2000 BBC adaption of Lorna Doone. Amelia’s career in the acting field came to an end after her frustration with the casting director. In an interview with The Telegraph, she said,

“It wasn’t fulfilling. You have no control, there is no responsibility, you go to the audition, and you either get the part or you don’t – that’s as much choice as you have. Then a year later you see the end product and you can be in a completely different film from the one you thought you were making. It started to get really frustrating.”

Eventually, she decided to give music a try, and it worked out really well for her. She released her first studio album Renditions in 2011. For her work in the 2017 movie, Mark Shelley, Elva even won an IFMCA Award in the category, of Breakthrough Composer of the Year.
