'Fifty Shades' Actor Brant Daugherty Originally Auditioned to Play Christian Grey!

Before he landed the role of Sawyer in Fifty Shades Freed, actor Brant Daugherty actually auditioned to play the role of Christian Grey!

The 32-year-old actor opened up to his fans during a Facebook Live chat on Saturday morning (March 10) and answered a question about his audition.

The fan asked if Brant auditioned to play Christian and he said, “Yes, I did. I auditioned for it when they were originally casting it. I was a little young, I think I was 26 at the time. They ended up hiring Charlie Hunnam and then he dropped out. And they brought me in to audition again and then they hired Jamie [Dornan]. And Jamie is perfect for the role and I ended up getting Sawyer, so it’s hard to be upset about something like that.”

Dakota Johnson Had Thongs Superglued to Her Body for 'Fifty Shades' Sex Scenes

Dakota Johnson is opening up about having her thong underwear superglued to her body while filming the sexy Fifty Shades Freed scenes.

“Oh yeah, Jamie‘s little pouch,” Dakota told Marie Claire about Jamie Dornan‘s “modesty pouch” to keep him covered on set. “It’s super not glamorous—it’s really unsexy. He wore that, and I had these sort of strapless thongs that had glue on them. It’s not glue, but it’s sticky. They’re, like, basically if it were a nipple pastie, but underwear. But it’s only sticky at the top, it’s not sticky the whole way. It would also come off because the adhesive would wear out, so then they would superglue it to my body so that it wouldn’t fall off. And I would wear two of them. It’s not painful, I mean, it’s barely anything. But I guess you have some sense of being covered. It’s f*cking bizarre.”

And as for preparing to do the sex scenes? Dakota said, “Most of [our preparation] is just really figuring out exactly how we are going to accomplish the scene beforehand—so that there’s not a lot of waiting around while we’re both vulnerable. But, if something is very, very difficult, it’s sometimes necessary to have a shot of something strong beforehand.”

During his appearance, Jamie revealed that Dakota schooled him on the proper way to remove her underwear.

Dakota would be quicker to give me a note than a director,” he said. “There’s a sexy way to take off a girl’s underwear…that isn’t just like,” he explained while quickly pulling his hands down in the air.

“There is a more delicate, sensual way to do it…which is thumbs into the side, and then you sort of shimmy it down.”
