Lucky girl! Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan were photographed hard at work on the set of Fifty Shades of Grey in Vancouver, Canada. The costars shot a memorable scene from E.L. James‘ erotic novel where Christian Grey (Dornan) surprised Anastasia Steele (Johnson) with a brand new car.
While filming the scene, Dornan, 31, covered Johnson’s eyes before revealing the red Audi A3. The actor looked handsome in a fitted suit, while Johnson, 24, wore a pretty grey dress.
In the book, Christian decides Anastasia’s VW Beetle, nicknamed Wanda, is unsafe and needs to be replaced. Anastasia nicknames her new Audi “The Submissive Special,” because Christian, a wealthy businessman who secretly practices BDSM, bought the same car for his past submissives.
Though they didn’t show much PDA in the scenes filmed Thursday, Dornan and Johnson will no doubt be filming sexier scenes in the future to recreate James’ erotica bestseller. Dornan, for one, is up for the challenge.
“I’m a fairly worldly guy. I grew up in a very liberal place. I’m not saying we had a playroom, but I’m not shocked by [the sex in the book],” he told Entertainment Weekly in November. “It’s essential to tell the story. I can’t believe films that don’t invoke the sexual side of it. So it works for me.”
