Star of thriller murder series The Fall, the Co Down native topped the Radio Times poll of new talent - beating off Doctor Who's Jenna Coleman and The White Queen's Aneurin Bernard.
Dornan, who is currently filming the much anticipated film version of the worldwide hit novel Fifty Shades of Grey, took just over one quarter of the votes.
He was cast for the part of Mr Christian Grey in the film alongside Dakota Johnson, who plays timid student Anastasia Steele. Singer Rita Ora has also been cast to play Christian's sister Mia.
2013 was a busy year for the 31-year-old as he got married to his partner Amelia Warner in April and welcomed a baby girl into the world at the end of November. The baby's name has not been released.
