June 2014 Brought Fans A Gift in Honor of Christian's Birthday, Casting News & A Look at Escala... sort of.
On June 18th, in honor of Christian Grey's birthday, E.L. James announced a giveaway on her website. Fans flooded to James' site for a chance to win "The Playroom" key chain and an autographed copy of Fifty Shades of Grey. The response was so overwhelming it literally crashed the site. They were eventually able to get it back up in time for fans to enter but it spoke volumes for the millions of devoted fans she has. The contest is now closed for entries but we're sure one lucky fan is going to be very happy when that prize shows up in their mailbox.
Christian's birthday celebration brought fans another gift from Team Fifty that day as well, @FiftyShades released the first movie still! The photo shows Jamie Dornan, as Christian Grey driving what we can only assume is the Audi R8. How much do you love seeing Jamie in character as Christian?
June also brought casting news!We were delighted to learn two more actors had joined the cast of Fifty Shades of Grey. Andrew Airlie has signed on to play Christian's father, Carrick Grey.
A Peek of Escala...sort of
If that wasn't enough excitement already, E.L. James gave us a fun a bit of a teaser last week as well. Shortly after arriving in L.A., James posted a picture of a hand drawn sketch of the Escala downstairs floor plan. She obviously knows her fans are thrilled to get any little sneak peek we can get.
