Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson Begin Filming ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’


The highly-anticipated film adaptation of the popular erotic series, Fifty Shades of Grey, started filming on Sunday, Dec. 1 in Vancouver, and fans were given the chance to see the lead actors in action.

Irish model-turned-actor Jamie Dornan was spotted with newcomer Dakota Johnson filming scenes for the upcoming sure-to-be blockbuster. In the photos, Dornan, who plays kinky billionaire Christian Grey, appears to be pouring tea for Johnson, who’s taking on the role of Anastasia Steele in the series.

Dornan, 31, fit effortlessly into Christian’s signature grey suit with his brown locks casually tousled, and Johnson, 24, looked casual as Anastasia wearing a think scarf and army green jacket.

Fifty Shades author E.L. James Instagrammed a picture of the film’s official clapperboard on Dec. 1 with the caption, “Action!”

Filming for the series’ first installment was slightly delayed after Sons of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam turned down the lead role, but Dornan quickly filled his shoes. Now Fifty Shades of Grey is set for wide release on Feb. 13, 2015.
