Dakota Johnson on “50 Shades Darker”

Two years ago Fifty Shades of Grey brought the colossal worldwide bestseller to the big screen. The torrid sexual awakening of Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) under the tutelage of brooding billionaire Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) set imaginations ablaze and broke box office records becoming a cultural meme. Now to no one’s surprise the inevitable sequel is here. Fifty Shades Darker begins with Anastasia and Christian getting back together after a temporary separation and resuming their BDSM romance. The HFPA’s Mirai Konishi and Margaret Gardiner caught up with the lovely Dakota to ask her about the film and what’s next for Ana.
