SHOOT: FIFTY SHADES OF GREY’s Ana Steele (Dakota Johnson) Runs Up Lonsdale in North Vancouver


Christian Grey would be happy if he saw this: Ana Steele (Dakota Johnson) taking care of herself with a new running regimen. Wearing a light blue hoodie, grey stretch pants and grey sneakers she ran up a steep block of North Vancouver’s Lower Lonsdale over and over again this morning, filmed by a camera cart. Crew didn’t give her a ride back down to the Bank of Montreal on the corner, where she hydrated and stretched before doing it again.

A happy Dakota Johnson, high on runner’s endorphins?

Earlier: Will Fifty Shades of Grey’s Ana Steele (Dakota Johnson) be jogging this block of Lower Lonsdale in North Vancouver today? A young woman will run either from the Bank of Montreal up to the  historic Paine Hardware building or vice-versa. That’s what the filming notice suggests. Note the excellent work done by the movie’s Greens Department in zip-tying imitation leaves to bare trees and adding shrubbery on Thursday to make February in North Vancouver look like May in Seattle’s Pike Place Market neighbourhood.

Fifty Shades of Grey is expected to wrap filming in Vancouver in a week, with only one other on-location shoot next Wednesday at Jamieson Tower downtown in their parkade.

See you next Valentine’s Day.
