Jamie Dornan: ‘I visited a sex dungeon to prepare for Fifty Shades Of Grey’

Dornan plays kinky businessman Christian Grey in the big screen adaptation of the erotic novel

Jamie Dornan has revealed that he visited a sex dungeon to prepare for his role in the Fifty Shades of Grey film.

The Fall‘s Dornan stars in the forthcoming adaptation of EL James’s bestselling erotic novel as Christian Grey, the kinky businessman who seduces demure college student Anastasia Steele, played by Dakota Johnson.

“I went there, they offered me a beer, and they did… whatever they were into,” Dornan told Elle, recalling his visit to the sex den. “I saw a dominant with one of his two submissives.”

“There was plenty of kink… and plenty laughter,” Dornan continued. “I was like: ‘Come on guys I know I’m not paying for this but I am expecting a show.’ It was an interesting evening. Then going back to my wife and newborn baby afterwards… I had a long shower before touching either of them.”

Fifty Shades of Grey was directed by Nowhere Boy‘s Sam Taylor Wood and is due to open in cinemas on Valentine’s Day next year. Its supporting cast includes Luke Grimes, Marcia Gay Harden, Jennifer Ehle and Rita Ora, who is also providing a song for a soundtrack.
