Fifty Shades star Dakota Johnson compares filming Darker and Freed back-to-back to a "marathon"

Written by

Dakota Johnson recently spoke about what it's like to film the Fifty Shades series and said she hopes to reach the end of Darker and Freed soon. Read on to see what else she had to say!

With Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed currently in production, we have been reveling in all the news coming off the set. Last week the wedding scene in Freed was being filmed, which got us and most fans excited at the prospect of seeing photos from the shoot. Our wishes were granted, as a pic from the wedding scene was released, which showed Anastasia being carried away by Christian right after tying the knot. This is the post pivotal scene that's been filmed, since it was announced that the helicopter crash, which occurs in Darker had been shot. The dramatic sequence involves Christian's plane going down and discovering that it had been tampered with. The scare he experiences prompts Christian to propose to Anastasia when he gets back to Seattle in one piece. Now, it's time to turn our attention towards all the info from the important Freed scenes.

Filming on Fifty Shades Darker began in February and is now transitioning into the filming of Freed, the final installment in the Fifty Shades trilogy. Dakota Johnson recently spoke to Yahoo! Movies about the experience of filming the last two films back-to-back. The actress shared: "It really is a marathon, and I don't see the end. But hopefully I'll see it soon! It's going really well." She also noted that the next two movies will not be entirely serious. Johnson remarked: "We're trying to figure out all the best ways to level out the emotional aspects of the story, as well as the comedic notes. Hopefully these films will be funny - that's what I appreciate about them." There were definitely moments of lighthearted banter in the first film, which helped to relieve the tension and potential for dramatic overkill. We're glad to hear they're continuing in the same direction for Darker and Freed. For more Fifty Shades updates click the green subscribe button below!
