Do you think Jamie Dornan is going to be the only amazing (looking) male in the next Fifty Shades films? We’re happy to report that you can now think again. Those who watch Pretty Little Liars (PLL) will be excited to know that Brant Daugherty is joining the third instalment, Fifty Shades Freed. So, yes, we’ll have to wait a while before we see him on screen (boo), but it will be worth the wait.
According to Deadline, Daugherty — better known as Noel Kahn to PLL fans — will take on the role of Luke Sawyer, a personal bodyguard Christian Grey hires to watch over Anastasia Steele.
Author E.L. James welcomed Daugherty to the cast of the film, which is being shot back-to-back with the second in the series, Fifty Shades Darker, and then the actor shared his excitement over nabbing the role. We think he gives Dornan a run for his money TBH.

The actor also appeared on Army Wives and in 2013, he lasted eight weeks on Dancing with the Stars.
He joins Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan in their familiar Fifty Shades roles. The Sawyer character is described as the personal body guard for Anastasia Steele (Johnson). Stars Kim Basinger, Eric Johnson, Arielle Kebbel, Luke Grimes and Rita Ora will also feature in the upcoming films.
Fifty Shades Darker is due to hit cinemas on February 10th, 2017 and Fifty Shades Freed is to be released on February 9th, 2018.
Are you looking forward to the sequels?
