Jamie Dornan has revealed that he visited a sex club while researching his role as Christian Grey in the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey movie.
The Northern Irish heartthrob revealed that once he landed the part, he knew he would have to visit a sex dungeon.
"I went there, they offered me a beer, and they did... whatever they were into," he revealed.
"I saw a dominant with one of his two submissives and he became our kink advisor on the film."
The Fall star admitted it was quite an interesting experience.
"I was like 'Come on guys I know I'm not paying for this but I am expecting a show'. It was an interesting evening," he told Elle UK.
"Then going back to my wife and newborn baby afterwards... I had a long shower before touching either of them," he said.
His wife Amelia Warner gave birth to their first child, a girl, in Vancouver last December where Jamie was filming Fifty Shades.
Jamie (32) has high praise for Amelia and credits her with helping him make the transformation from jobbing actor/model to serious Hollywood contender.
"My wife is a brilliant, hugely understanding person. Plus, she was an actress for ten years so she's aware of what it's like," he said.
"A lot of people would have had a s*** fit at 30-something weeks pregnant hearing, 'Darling, we're going to Vancouver this week for four months - we're going to have a Canadian baby and I'm going to do a film where, for parts of it, I will be naked'.
"That's a tough pitch but my wife is an incredible person," he added.
While fans of the book are eagerly anticipating Dornan's turn as billionaire Christian Grey next February, others tuned in to see the season two finale of The Fall last night.
Fans of the show in which Jamie plays serial killer Paul Spector were treated to a 90-minute feature-length episode last night.
It is yet unclear if the drama will return for a third season.
