Jamie Dornan has revealed his method when preparing for sex scenes – a box set of Sex And The City.
The Fifty Shades of Grey star admitted that the US series gets him ready to strip off on scene.
And the Holywood actor, 31, also gorged on Samantha and Carrie for new X-rated Channel 4 series New Worlds with co-star Joe Dempsie.
He said: “Joe and I watched all the Sex And The City box sets — twice. That helped. We had a ball — it was a good craic.
“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.”

And Jamie admitted that he was delighted to move away from modelling – after beginning his career working for Calvin Klein and bagging the nickname The Golden Torso.
He said: “I was always trying to find my way into acting but there were other distractions.
“I was still involved in modelling contracts and mucking around trying to be in a band but I always knew I wanted to purely be an actor.”
