What’s it like for Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson while filming sex scenes in the Fifty Shades franchise?
On this week’s edition of The Graham Norton Show, Dornan revealed he spends most of his time in those sequences trying to make Johnson bust up.
“My temptation is always just to try to make Dakota laugh,” Dornan said. “So sometimes I’ll do things like, when there’s a moment where I’m meant to orgasm, I’ll be like, ‘do-do-do do do-do.'”
Dornan and Johnson reprised their roles as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele, respectively, in Fifty Shades Darker, which brought on director James Foley to replace Fifty Shades of Grey helmer Sam Taylor-Johnson. According to Dornan, the gender swap behind the camera didn’t change things too much.
“Whoever is tasked with directing those kind of scenes… sex scenes are awkward anyway,” Dornan said.
Fifty Shades Darker is out now.
