Jamie Dornan has said he prepared for raunchy scenes in his latest TV series New Worlds by poring over Sex And The City box sets.
The Fall actor told The Sun that he had turned to Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda for help in getting his sex scenes just right for the steamy period drama.
He said of his preparation with castmate Joe Dempsie: "Joe and I watched all the Sex And The City box sets - twice. That helped."
Shortly after completing New Worlds, Jamie filmed erotic novel big screen adaptation Fifty Shades Of Grey, in which he plays Christian Grey.
On making the more gory scenes for the Channel 4 drama, which is set in the 17th century, he said: "We had a ball - it was a good craic."
Jamie continued: "Sometimes you don't luck out with the cast, you end up with people who aren't really on your wavelength and who don't approach the game the same way but we got genuinely lucky on this.
"Obviously we're getting the work done but you're allowed to have fun at work - I'd stop if I wasn't allowed to have fun."
