Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele back together again. Fifty Shades Darker filmed Ana (Dakota Johnson) coming out of her job at Seattle Independent Press (SIP) to meet Christian (Jamie Dornan) for a walk in the rain. He kisses her and later she gives him a present (a key chain that says Yes). Crew turned Vancouver’s Gastown into Seattle’s Pioneer Square for the shoot. Fifty Shades trilogy author E.L. James strolled by us without security and posed for a selfie or two with fans. Her husband Niall Leonard wrote the scripts for the sequels and James Foley is directing the back-to-back productions.

Ana gives Christian the Yes key chain.

*Fifty Shades asked people not to video filming. It’s a condition of fans being  able to watch. I embedded one fan’s videos overnight but removed them this morning because it ruins it for others who want to see their movie in production.
