Dakota Johnson’s On-Screen Bodyguard Brant Daugherty Spotted Filming ‘Fifty Shades Darker’ Scenes for First Time
Daugherty announced that was cast as Luke Sawyer back in February, but after a couple weeks of filming, we’re just seeing the hunky member of Christian Grey’s security detail on set for the first time.
On Feb. 20, he wrote on Twitter, “Thanks for the warm welcome @E_L_James! I can’t say how excited I am to bring Sawyer to life #FiftyShades”:

In the books, Grey appoints Sawyer as Anastasia Steele’s personal bodyguard. No complaints on our end:
You may recognize the 30-year-old actor from Pretty Little Liars, in which he had a recurring role as Noel Kahn.
Other cast members we’ve seen filming in Vancouver include Bella Heathcote (who plays Grey’s former submissive Leila), Eric Johnson (who plays Grey’s nemesis Jack Hyde), Max Martini (Taylor, Grey’s bodyguard), and Luke Grimes (Elliot, Grey’s brother).
