'Fifty Shades Freed' Casts Mega Hottie as Ana's Intense Bodyguard (PHOTO)

fifty shades of greyThose at casting over at Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed are really getting it right. We have just learned that Anastasia Steele's bodyguard, the one hired by Christian Grey to protect her, has been cast. Ana's bodyguard Luke Sawyer will be played by the gorgeous Brant Daugherty.


We all knew that Christian Grey has good taste. He clearly has good taste in bodyguards as well.

We won't get to meet our Luke "Bodyguard" Sawyer until the third film, Freed, but what's happening is that both movies are being filmed back to back so as not to create too much of a delay.

Daugherty took to Twitter to express his excitement at being cast in the role.

Really looking forward to him in the film! He seems so humble ... along with being so handsome. And strong -- perfect bodyguard material. In that third film, Ana needs a bodyguard; Christian Grey is too worried about her out there on her own for reasons we won't get into (so as not to create spoilers). And so he hires Luke Sawyer to protect and watch over Ana. Enter this guy. Daugherty is best known as Noel Kahn on the show Pretty Little Liars. Dancing With the Stars fans will also recognize his handsome face and moves from when he competed in the 2013 season. Peta was his partner. And if you are a soaps fan, Daugherty was also Brian on Days of Our Lives.

He's well-known in certain circles, and is about to have even more spotlights on him thanks to this role -- though, we still have to wait until 2018 to see him as Ana's bodyguard.
