Fifty Shades of Grey is inside one of Vancouver’s most famous mansions today filming the Grey family dinner with Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) his date Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson), his parents Dr. Grace Trevelyan-Grey (Marcia Gay Harden) and Carrick Grey (Andrew Airlie), his sister Mia (Rita Ori), his brother Elliot (Luke Grimes) and Elliot’s date, Ana’s roommate Kate (Eloise Mumford) all gathered around a formal dining room table in Casa Mia.
In conversation Ana infuriates Christian the Control Freak by casually mentioning to the group her plans to go to Georgia for a few days to visit her mother, then BFF Kate antagonizes him further by letting it spill that Ana had met his rival Jose for a drink on the Friday night without telling him and when he tries to fondle her under the table she closes her legs. Uh-oh.
How will Christian retaliate? After dinner, he takes Ana outside, throws her over his shoulder and carries her down the vast lawn to the boathouse for a quickie.
Not all of the Grey family dinner scenes will be filmed at Casa Mia but we can expect to see quite a few on screen since the filming notification to the very wealthy neighbours says filming will go from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. today.
